With Valentine's Day on the horizon, there will be lots of couples looking to spice things up on the big night. But it doesn't come that easy for some – especially when your usual idea of excitement is ordering Thai instead of Chinese on a Friday night. So for those couples caught in a rut, we've put together some naughty – but not too naughty – playthings that will be sure to cause a stir.
Why wait til dinner? Get him going early by slipping one of these Stay Clip Secrets Series collar stays ($45) into his shirt before he heads off to work. Each one is embedded with a romantic message that will have him blushing in front of the water cooler. You can also customize messages to make him squirm even more.
To get the evening going, start out with a game of SexSmarts ($17). This question and answer game asks everything from what words are slang for a woman's, ahem, body parts to what country places the highest value on sex (hint: it's not the US). Not just another kinky game of cards, this one will get you in the competitive spirit.
Chocoholics Chocolate Body Tattoo Set ($20) is perfect for couples with an adventurous side, a sense of humor, and a sweet tooth. The kinky stencils can be brushed onto any part of the body in a sweet (low-fat!) chocolate sauce.
After things heat up, you'll want to cool down and relax with the help of this Jimmyjane Ember Massage Candle ($48). Its soy wax melts into a soothing massage oil that smells amazing and feels even better.
