This review and giveaway were made possible by iConnect Influencer Management and Novel Erotics. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, however, all opinions are 100% my own.
Remember how exciting those first days of dating were, the rush of adrenaline and sense of adventure? Over time, that feeling can get eclipsed by car payments, mortgages, kids’ homework, making dinners and doing mountains of laundry.
So what’s a couple to do?
There are many ways to spice up your love life whether you are married or have been in a committed relationship for a while.
Set aside date nights that are just for the two of you. Make time. A relationship is a growing entity that needs nurturing and renewal. Sensuality contributes to general wellbeing, feeling attractive and confident.
You can go out for your favorite dinner or order in. Choose something you don’t eat every day, whether it be your favorite Thai soup or steak and crab legs.
Don’t underestimate the power of darkness. It heightens all your other senses. So, take advantage of that with a blindfold or lights out. Use aromatherapy and oil and really enjoy sharing massages, whether giving or receiving. If you’re giving, feel your partner’s skin on your fingertips. If you’re receiving, really feel their fingertips on your skin. Take your time and just be in the moment.
Certain foods are aphrodisiacs: basil, cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, avocados, chili peppers, honey, coconut water, asparagus, chocolate, red wine, pomegranates. Try these alone or combine a few. Spiced chai is a good choice!
Have some tiramisu or sorbet and lick it off your partner’s warm skin. If you enjoy wine, a glass will help you relax without putting you to sleep.
If your partner is out or working during the day, text them evocative messages that will spark their interest or slip a love note in a pocket or purse.
Another great idea is a gift from Novel Erotics. Novel Erotics was founded in 2015, after observing the fascination with the 50 Shades of Grey Series. Based in the New Orleans metro area, they know about having fun, so they had some great ideas for introducing novices to some interesting products and fantasies. Being parents themselves, they also know it can be hard to hide erotic items from ‘inquisitive eyes’.
With all this in mind, they designed a discreet, book-style storage box, each with a spicy story on the inside cover, and 5-6 items to make the fantasy your own. Themes range from Hotel Affairs to a creative twist on Teatime. There is also “Something Blue” – a box which is a fun, classy gift for the bachelorette.
Novel Erotics sent me one of their bestsellers, The Rendezvous. The story inside the front cover will get your imagination going, and there are lots of fun treats inside including two sex toys. There is also a soft black and lilac blindfold and an Earthly Body ‘Naked In the Woods’ Massage Candle.
Specially formulated to melt at just three degrees above body temperature, this candle with six natural oils is perfect for soft sensual massage.
I think this is the perfect set to start with, but, you can browse the others here and find the one that’s perfect for you! Not to worry, shipping is always discreet.
Now that I’ve piqued your interest (!), Novel Erotics has generously offered my readers a chance to win their own adventure. One of you will win your own Rendezvous set! Just enter via Giveaway Tools Below. Open to US readers, 18+.
