The goal for any man on Valentine’s Day is to make your woman feel desired and glamorous. It doesn’t matter if she’s modest or a total vixen, one thing is certain: Valentine’s Day heightens the anticipation factor and the love effect in spades! Its a particularly special day for a couple to focus on each other and their relationship, and create a romantic and memorable evening together.
The prevailing spending trends for Valentine’s Day in recent years has been heavy on flowers and candy. For 2013, Valentine’s Day spending is likely to rise to an average of $130 on candy, flowers, cards and more, per new numbers from the National Retail Federation.
But fashion for the boudoir is becoming a growing part of Valentine’s Day gifting. For men, they get to re-familiarize themselves with bustiers, bras and panties, and for women, receiving these from their men only heighten the anticipation for a great holiday (and night!).
Men, let’s face it. The only thing most of you know about lingerie for a woman is how to take it off. Buying undergarments is an activity for which most guys are typically unsuited. Men are more suited to take their women to sweet dinners rather than buy panties and bras as a gift. But if you do, do it right. First tip: don’t buy larger clothing sizes than she wears now. Check her drawers for absolute right sizes.

If you’re woman is more modest and less of a sexual provocateur, then err on the side of caution when it comes to design. A cheeky bra set or sweet slip would be a safe bet.

While many men tend to think flowers are a waste of money, flowers are the gift that delights women most. About 36 percent of Valentine’s Day gifters will buy flowers for their loved one this holiday. A recent survey showed 99 percent of women say that the flower-giver is thoughtful, 92 percent remember the first time they received flowers, 88% say that flowers change their mood for the better and 86 percent say receiving flowers makes them feel special.
To be unique in your woman’s eyes, men might want to opt for a change from the obvious red roses and try another luscious flower choice, like hydrangeas, tulips, lilies, orchids, irises or something unexpected like sunflowers. Your significant other will love and remember your originality and extra effort.
The right music for the right, um, set of activities can make all the difference. USA Today reported that among the top tunes people listen to during sex are the Dirty Dancing soundtrack, Marvin Gayes Sexual Healing, Ravels Bolero, Berlins Take my Breath Away and any ol Barry White. Songs like this have been mainstays for years on lovers’ soundtracks. If you and your partner are feeling it differently, spend some time making a great Valentine’s Day music list via Spotify or Pandora.
A well-planned lighting concept not only gets most couples in the mood, it can also help women (and men!) feel more confident in the buff, according to Glamour Magazine. Try lighting pillar candles for flickering shadows of light and dark. The minimal light lets couples see each other just enough, while masking any body flaws. If you arent a candle fan, a low-wattage bulb or dimmer will do in a pinch.
And if you haven’t already. clean the boudoir! Get rid of dirty clothes, papers, books, bills and other junk before Valentine’s Day. Also, put all technology on hold, silencing phones, switching off the TV and powering down your computers, so your focus remains on each other.
Valentine’s Day can be a great mid-winter warm-up to get a couple in the right spirit to stay committed during the long winter months. Using the tips above can go a long way in managing that quest.
