6 Sexy Valentine’s Day Gifts You’ll Love (That Aren’t Chocolate!)
Can a heart-shaped box of chocolates make you more beautiful? Fat chance. Here are some much better Valentine’s Day gift ideas to share with your man (or buy for yourself) that offer a sexy beauty bonus.
Fragrance. Flowers are men’s number one choice for a Valentine’s Day gift for their ladies, yet gifts of fragrance are much less common. Maybe he’s afraid you won’t like his pick or he’s overwhelmed by the complexity of perfume shopping. The easy solution? Go unisex. One fragrance for both of you is a hot trend and he can’t go wrong choosing a light, fresh eau de toilette like JAFRA’s citrusy Yitsu or sweet-spicy Urban Energy.
Sparkly earrings. You may never have thought about it, but men associate large or showy earrings with sexy “bad girls,” which is definitely the vibe you want going on Valentine’s Day. A big, sparkly diamond hoop or dangly cascade may not be your choice for every day wear, but if your man picks out a pair for you, wear them and enjoy knowing he finds you pretty and sexy.
A bottle of red wine. If your guy presented you with an anti-aging potion for Valentine’s Day, you probably wouldn’t be very pleased. But that’s exactly what red wine is. Red wine contains large amounts of antioxidants known as polyphenols that fight cellular aging. It’s also a well-known de-stressor. And it’s something you can enjoy together, so pop the cork and enjoy a glass knowing you’re doing something that will keep you and your man youthful.
A massage gift basket. He can improvise this one by putting together a collection of related gifts—with the promise of a massage—that include items like body oils and bath gels, a fluffy robe and pretty new towels. If he’s not confident in his massage skills, he can always stick to just a head massage and gift you some JAFRA Spa Scalp Massage and Hair Treatment. Afterward, shower off together!
The perfect scarf. Sure, lingerie may seem sexier, but it’s a lot tougher for your man to get right and it isn’t nearly as visible (hopefully) as a beautiful silk or gossamer scarf. If he wants to be really romantic, he should choose an infinity style loop scarf to demonstrate his endless love. A hue that complements your skin color makes you more beautiful and shows how considerate he is. What’s sexier than that?
Satin sheets. The smooth, silky texture of satin sheets and pillowcases is just plain sexy, but they also deliver a beauty bonus. Because satin is less textured than cotton, it’s gentler and nonabrasive to your skin, eyelashes and hair. If you’re a side sleeper, satin sheets may help prevent facial wrinkles. And, let’s be honest, for beautiful skin, there’s nothing like the post-sexy-time glow!
