Valentine’s Day Gifts for Her, for Him, or Just for You
Massage. Nothing makes your body feel better than an hour in the hands of a qualified massage therapist. A relaxing treatment reduces stress, increases circulation and stimulates the senses. Book an appointment at your favorite spa and ask for a service that you’ve never tried before like a hot stone massage or aromatherapy. No budget for a professional service? No problem. With a bottle of scented massage oil, you can enjoy a couple’s massage at home. Even if you practice solo massage, there are benefits to enjoy. BuzzFeed offers tips to massage the areas of your body that need the most attention.
Lingerie. Sexy underthings can instantly up your confidence game. The trick, says lingerie expert Kimmay Caldwell, is to buy for yourself and not for anyone else. “Go to the department store, a lingerie boutique, or your favorite online destination, and choose something you love. Not what you think your partner wants, not what your mother would pick out, not what you think your Tinder date will like – what YOU love. Maybe it’s lace, or the prettiest blue. Perhaps it’s smooth but colorful; it just has to be you.”
Meditation. Just a few minutes of mindful meditation can provide countless health benefits, including stress relief for improved weight loss. But did you know that it can also boost your performance in the bedroom? “For starters,” says meditation coach Lynne Goldberg, “meditation allows you stay in the present – so hopefully, you're not thinking about your to-do list, or worse, analyzing what’s going on instead of enjoying it.” She goes on to explain that learning to focus with guided meditations can help you to step back from your busy mind and pay more attention to what your body is feeling to enjoy better orgasms.

Sensual products. The folks at LELO did a recent survey about what matters most in a relationship, love or lust. The results were surprising. The general trend both for men and women turned out to be that the older you get the more important lust becomes. Could it be that the older we get, the less lust we feel? Perhaps we get sluggish about our physicality as we age? If so, there’s a cure. No matter if you’re single or committed, male or female, young or old, LELO believes it’s the naughty thoughts that count. The company provides artfully designed intimate products at every price point and every comfort level. Use them alone or with a partner to put a smile on your face and a spring in your step on Valentine’s Day and throughout the year.
