Aphrodisiac Gifts to put The Seduction into Valentine’s Day

When you want to make a lasting impression with a Valentine gift it takes a little imagination to come up with something more exciting than the usual champagne and red roses. This Valentine’s Day why not spice up your romance with a special aphrodisiac themed gift, showing just how much thought you have put into making the occasion special and how desirable you find your partner. From aphrodisiac oils and potions to seduce the senses, to cookery books packed full of aphrodisiac inspired recipes, take inspiration from these unique Valentine’s Day gifts.

You can cook up something special together with one of the potent recipes from The New InterCourses: An Aphrodisiac Cookbook, available on Amazon. Tasty recipes using sensuous ingredients such as artichokes, herbs and chocolate allow you to share a passion for food in a far more intimate setting than going out for dinner. In a similar vein you can tempt with The Seduction Cookbook: Culinary Creations for Lovers, or Seduction and Spice: 130 Recipes for Romance.

If you prefer to skip actually cooking up love you can go straight for the Aphrodisiac Confection Collection from Theo Chocolate, comprising eight unique confections created from aphrodisiac herbs and spices. Tempt your partner with a taste of hot Ceylon cinnamon chocolate, and ginger and tequila lime chocolate.

Adevi Aphrodisiac Chocolates are another seductive choice for Valentine’s Day, promising aphrodisiac kisses with the sweetness of love. Each Adevi truffle is created from high-quality fair trade chocolate infused with aphrodisiac herbs such as horny goat weed, cayenne, tarragon, and tangerine oil. For a taste of French perfection seduce your Valentine with the French Broad Aphrodisiac Collection of chocolate truffles filled with spicy ginger and tart pomegranate, lemon and pink peppercorn, and strawberries and Prosecco.

A Valentine’s Day tipple is needed to round off an evening of rich aphrodisiac food and lush chocolate truffles. Eden Mill Love Gin has the romantic name to match the romantic occasion, or if your tastes don’t run to spirits you could opt for Love Lager from the Greenport Harbor Brewing Company, an American light style beer. A delicious boozy chocolate tipple to share is Major Cioccowhisky Chocolate and Whiskey Liqueur, the perfect choice for relaxing on Valentine’s Day evening.

Sensual massage oils are a perfect gift for Valentine’s Day, especially if you add the personal touch. Lime Lace creates beautiful glass apothecary bottles with ground glass stoppers and etched phrases. Fill an Aphrodisiac etched apothecary bottle with your own sensual love potion and enjoy the moment. The most romantic oils to celebrate Valentines are an aphrodisiacal blend of jasmine, sandalwood, patchouli and French lavender. Ylang ylang is considered to be a potent aphrodisiac oil and neroli could prompt a marriage proposal as it is often associated with wedding ceremonies.

Each of these aphrodisiac themed Valentine’s Day gifts are thought of with couples in mind, so the romance of the day can be truly shared. They have far more of the personal touch than something less thought of.
