The winner of my book giveaway from Monday’s post is Abby. Congratulations! For those who didn’t win, check out the Valentine’s Day book bundle at the end of this post. 4 books for $10, so my book is only $2.50 — which makes it half-price and less than your kid’s Happy Meal or maybe your Starbucks order. 🙂
In case you’re strapped for time, yet you still want to put together a Valentine’s gift for your hubby (or wife) that conveys you and me, baby, don’t worry. I’ve got you covered. You can load up on the milk, bread, and meal items, and then add a few extras to your cart for a special, intimate Valentine’s Day.
Yes, you can find sexy gifts at your grocery store. I perused my local supermarket, and here’s what I discovered.
Lubricant. Your grocery store likely has a section of intimacy items that include lube options. Find a product you haven’t tried, maybe something flavored, and add a note for your hubby of how you’d like to use it.
Bakery treats. Grab a tasty treat from the bakery, with plans to eat it together in bed. Awakening your five senses can lead to an easier time for sexual arousal, so start with livening up your taste buds. You can even mention where else you’d like to put your mouth when the cupcake’s gone.
Music gift card. Buy a gift card and suggest choosing songs for sex together. Make the selection a joint effort. You’ll likely have fun coming up with ideas and putting together a special marital intimacy playlist. You can find some suggestions for tunes here.
Greeting card. Find a more suggestive greeting card — one that not only says you love your man, but you find him sexy. Write something playful and promising in your own hand. Address the envelope “My Lover” or some nickname you’ve given him.Body oil or lotion. In the body care aisles, look for oil or lotion you can use for massage. Promise to get naked and rub his body, or rub each others’ bodies, with the product. Make sensual touch an integral part of your Valentine’s celebration with a special massage.
Markers. Why markers? Because you can use them to write a special message on your body, just for your husband. Or draw hearts or arrows on your skin to lead him where you want him to touch. The washable markers will go on easily and come off with soap and water. But you can also use Sharpie markers to get your point across; it has more staying power, but comes off with alcohol or acetone (nail polish).
Wine. If you and your husband drink, buy a special bottle of wine to share together. Add some special glasses wrapped with red ribbon for the occasion. You can even make your own wine label or a note with this verse: “Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth—for your love is more delightful than wine” (Song of Songs 1:1).
Bubble bath. Pick your favorite bath stuff, present it, and invite him to join you. Spend some time soaping each other up and soaking naked in the bubbles.
Chocolates. Hey, it’s a classic for a reason. Remember that sweet treat stuff I said earlier? Feed each other the chocolates in turn. Even make a game out of it — letting the one who gets a fruit center choose sexual position and the one who gets caramel (the yummiest one) choose location. Or something like that.
Board game. Speaking of games, does your grocery store have a kids’ toy department? Even small sections likely have a few classic games. But when it comes to marriage, they’re not just games, but rather opportunities to play Strip _____. Almost any board game can be adapted for a clothing-removal challenge that ends with both of you winning. Or grab Twister, throw it out on your bedroom floor, and play naked; you’ll have fun and end up perfectly entangled.
Marriage books. If your grocery store has a book section, they might have some books you could read. For instance, you could go through this Love Is a Verb couples devotional book in bed together. Did you know that couples who pray together have very low divorce rates and report very satisfying sex lives? Becoming spiritually intimate is a great idea on its own, but it can also boost your sexual intimacy.
Roses. Buy the roses, but don’t leave them in the paper! Pull the flowers apart and scatter the petals on your bed as an invitation for special, intimate activity. Make your bedroom smell like a garden, then post a sign or give him a note citing, “Let my beloved come into his garden and taste its choice fruits” (Song of Songs 4:16).
Chocolate syrup and whipped cream. Need I explain what you can do with these? Just know that they even have reduced calorie and sugar-free options, so you can probably find something that works for you. And be sure to grab a towel, because while this is fun, it can get messy. Enjoy!
See? You really can find good stuff at the grocery store. Just be creative about the presentation and let hubby know you’re up for a special night of intimacy, in honor of Valentine’s Day and your covenant marriage.
What else have you bought or seen in the grocery store that would make a sexy Valentine’s gift? Any ideas for presentation?
