Valentine’s Gift Idea #1: Tastefully Yours

And so the countdown begins – what to get your sweetie for Valentine’s Day? Of course, not all gifts have to be store bought. You can make your own gifts or simply spend a quiet evening together. Then again, some store-bought gifts can encourage non-store-bought time together. Enter toys.

Introducing Babeland’s Tastefully Yours kit – a great Valentine’s Day (or everday) choice for couples who enjoy playing with the sensuousness of tastes during sexual play. Four body paints (with a cute little paint brush) are included so that you can softly and gently paint your beloved (or belusted) and lick away. There are even two body paint pens, which I had not seen before, in chocolate and strawberry. Both are unexpectedly good – being a chocolate lover myself, I was drawn to the rich chocolate taste. Because it comes in a pen, the lines that are drawn are pretty thin so the chocolate won’t get too messy on your partner – it would take a lot of effort to make a mess, in my opinion. Anne Hooper’s Great Sex Games book comes in this kit too - this is a classic book that many couples have used to enhance their exploration. A little vibration is also included in this pack, as is Good Head, a lickable gel that some feel helps to slightly numb sensation in their mouths and throats to ease the gag reflex. Flavored lube and condoms are packed in this kit too, as is Babeland’s own yummy Babegloss lip gloss and a super good lickable oil in case you’re into sensuous touching and massage (and who isn’t?). Truly, this is a kit that can help you and your partner to reconnect around touch, play and connection. Learn more about it on Babeland’s web site.
