Is one of your New Year’s resolutions to fall in love all over again with your significant other? As one of Michael Leunig’s quotes states, “Love one another and you will be happy; it is as simple and as difficult as that.” My husband and I say ‘I love you’ probably 20 times a day and although we mean it, we may have lost some of the passion in the words. Sometimes it takes a little effort to really demonstrate our true love. Our actions, certainly do show it. Preparing a special meal or doing something simple but that means a lot goes a long way (like buttering my toast). But Valentine’s Day can show us how to profess one’s love – bringing enchantment, excitement and maybe, shall we say, a little titillation. Here are some suggestions to get the one that you love all-a-fluttered.
Bring a little fun and titillation to your romance (like with this sweet Little Afterglow Candle Set). What better way than receiving a romantic products for couples.
