Spice Up Your Date Night This Valentine's Day!

Spice Up Your Date Night This Valentine's Day!





Finding ways to spice up date night can be hard when you and your partner have been together for a while. With Valentine's Day coming up, more and more couples are scrambling to find ways to treat their partner to a special night out and top what they did last year. If you're constantly trying to do better than the year prior, you'll likely end up hitting a placebo point where there's nothing the two of you still want to do -- at least without breaking the bank. 


Once it reaches this point, start from scratch and plan a date night at home instead of going out. I'm talking about the basics: flowers, lingerie, and chocolate. Making dinner, putting on their favorite movie, and getting comfy on the couch (with some breaks for making out) can be a great way to show that you cherish your partner through your actions instead of just your words. Nonetheless, some couples may want to add a bit of spice to this perfect night-in recipe, and if you're one of those people, keep reading because we have some ideas that may suit your desires!


Massage Candles


Massage candles have been gaining popularity lately - and for a good reason. These candles contain coconut oil and shea butter, so they have a lower melting point than regular candles. They come in various scents that smell amazing, and unlike drip candles, they melt into the skin when poured on, leaving your skin wonderfully soft. Our favorite is the Kama Sutra candles, which have a pour spout built into the container for less clean-up after use.


Giving your partner a massage is not only foreplay, but it has a nice, gentler side of romance to it as well. Treating your partner to a relaxing massage after a hard day at work is worth every second, but it can also make them feel cherished and loved during a date night. To add more of a sexual side to it, I recommend offering your partner a comfortable blindfold, like the Sincerely Lace Blindfold, and having them wear their favorite piece of lingerie - something they love to wear to boost their confidence is always the best choice.


Edible Lubricant


Edible lubricant alone isn't necessarily the top choice for spicing things up, but it's just like most products; it's not about the item itself but what you do with it! For a romantic night, I recommend Jo Gelato flavored lubricants. The taste is of more luxurious desserts such as Tiramisu, Creme Brulee, and White Chocolate Raspberry Truffle, my favorite. It's a great way to tie in some romance and even get the sensation that you're eating out - pun fully intended!


Oral sex may not be the first thing everyone thinks of for a date night, but it can certainly be a pleasant surprise for your partner, and flavored lubricant helps add some fun. You can also use items like the Bijoux Swipe Remedy Mints to add more sensation to the receiver! These mints help increase blood flow to the clitoris or penis while used during oral due to the cooling sensation they provide. A positioning aid such as a ramp or wedge can also help your partner feel pampered during the experience by putting less tension or strain on their body!


Date Night Books & Games


Bringing a game into the bedroom might not be everyone's cup of tea, but it's a great way to relax and find something new that the two of you may enjoy! Our top pick, and most popular in-store option, is Cosmo's Steamy Sex Games. This choice has options ranging from Sexy Scavenger Hunt to Dirty Truth or Dare, and these games are all printed on clever tear-out cards, sure to fire up your love life. Pour the wine, open up a game, and see how much fun the two of you can have - and where it can lead you both.


On the other side of the same coin, if you're looking for a more romantic option for the two of you to do together, the Date Night In Couples' Journal has been the hot choice for our store customers lately, especially with Christmas having just passed and Valentine's right around the corner! This journal is full of cute prompts to remind you of what made you fall in love or fun mini-games like drawing amateur portraits of each other, coming up with a string of messages using only song lyrics, and more. It's such a cute idea that I've even been eyeing it myself for my partner! 




Offering blankets as a great addition to a night in may seem out of the left field, but I can assure you that these blankets feel like luxury and are sure to make your partner happy. The Liberator Fascinator throw blankets are some of our most popular bedroom items besides toys, and they're called liquid velvet for a reason - I can promise they genuinely feel like that.


They're fully waterproof and machine washable, making clean-up super simple in the bedroom. They're also reversible, with one side being microfiber and the other satin, so they're the best thing to sleep on. You and your partner deserve better than having sex on scratchy towels, I promise! These blankets are perfect for everything, from massage-based foreplay to soft aftercare when everything's over. Unfortunately, these blankets are only available in-store, but if you live locally, they're definitely worth stopping in and feeling for yourself - they're worth the trip!



Date nights can be something other than going to the most expensive restaurant in town and spending all of your money. Especially on Valentine's Day, where you may not get the best deal due to price increases, sometimes it's best to stay home! Romance relies on you and your actions, not on supplementary gifts or pricey dishes made by someone else. Just relax, help your partner with dinner, and show your love for them through touches and actions this year - and our suggestions will help you make your Valentine's Day even more special than last year.
