As Valentine's Day approaches, you are likely to be considering the best course of action for putting a smile on your lover's face with your chosen gift. There is no denying that most people would gratefully receive a nice box of chocolates with a pseudo-anonymous card thrown in for good measure, but there is a certain lack of imagination and creativity when it comes to what are considered to be 'standard Valentine's Day gifts'.
It's on a similar vein as buying your Dad socks for Christmas, albeit a perfectly acceptable gift but this is where the problem lies. Is 'acceptable' enough on a day that is celebrating love and affection between two intimate companions? Why not invest in your relationship by giving your partner a Fun Gift that will help both of you achieve immense pleasure and satisfaction in your sex life? Lovehoney has a vast and eclectic range of best-selling Sex Toys and Essentials that could make a real difference and improvement to your sex life.
Explore each others erogenous zones and share the intimate experience of using a Sex Toy for the first time or indeed building upon an existing collection of pleasure-pleasing items.

Giving us our one-liner this week was bumble who gave the medicinal-looking Pjur Med Energy Glide lubricant a good testing. Not entirely sure about the warming qualities of the lube she kept a clean-up cloth nearby. After all, "(nothing says sexy quite like a wet flannel)." Read the review.

Lingerie shopping is tricky at the best of times.
