Now, this is meant for married couples, clean and tasteful, but it is about building intimacy. No toys.

Romantic Finds That I Love

Massage Products

Massage is a great way to connect with your spouse, and has many health benefits as well.

We have found this book a great resource:

Here are some other ones that I hope to add to our library:

I you are looking for a good massage oil, I highly recommend this one from Earthley Wellness.

I have also heard great things about Plant Therapy’s Marvelous Massage Oil

(There are contra-indicators for massage, so please do some research! This link was very helpful.)

Games and Questions

This conversation deck is a fun night! Thought provoking questions bring a deeper level of intimacy.

We got this BattleShip Last year and it’s pretty fun.

This one will be listed twice because they have a great games, as well as some other great resources:

Intimately Us App

This has been a fun find! There is a free version, but for lifetime use it was only $40, which is what we would spend on a date night, and this will spice things up for a while. There are daily prompts for sparking romance. Challenges, conversation starters, date night ideas, sexploration list, games, and more! You can link accounts with your spouse, and if you do buy the premium version, the cost covers you both.

Date Night In Boxes

This is a fun subscription box that you can get in either a general or a faith option. They are somewhat moving away from only subscriptions with the option to purchase past boxes, which is really fun.

I ordered a few last year and we really enjoyed them. With four kids it’s sometimes hard to find a sitter or a good night to go out, and this solves that problem. It also takes away the pressure to plan something yourself. These boxes are designed to bring you closer physically, emotionally, and spiritually (with the faith box option).

Right now you can check out their Valentine’s Day Sale 20% off sitewide with code: BEMINE

Lingerie

Mentionables.com

I really love that this site allows you to ‘window shop’ with your husband for lingerie without things being displayed on models. With sizes from XS to 3X this by women, for women company carries a variety of lingerie.

Books to Read Together

This was a fun one. Try something new with your sweetie! These adorable monkey serve as the models in this version of the Kama Sutra.

A good read. “Learn how to enjoy one of God’s most magnificent gifts without guilt or regret! The Song of Solomon offers couples an explicit, sensual, and daring picture of romantic love—without becoming sordid. Jaynes explores the book’s views on giving and receiving pleasure, restoring romance, making intimacy a priority, avoiding the dangers of indifference, and more.”

“Based on a groundbreaking in-depth survey of 22,000 Christian women, The Great Sex Rescue unlocks the secrets to what makes some marriages red hot while others fizzle out. Generations of women have grown up with messages about sex that make them feel dirty, used, or invisible, while men have been sold such a cheapened version of sex, they don’t know what they’re missing. The Great Sex Rescue hopes to turn all of that around, developing a truly biblical view of sex where mutuality, intimacy, and passion reign.”

This book has been a game changer for me. I cannot recommend it enough.

This practical book provides 31 days of challenges to help you and your spouse talk, flirt, and explore all three levels of sexual intimacy–physical, emotional, and spiritual–so you both can experience the best sex ever.”

A fun read and the challenges are fun.

“If you ever wonder, Is this all there is to sex? or I wish I knew how to help my wife enjoy this more, you’ll appreciate this straightforward, helpful, and faith-based advice on how to have a better sex life. This can-we-start-tonight? book about making sex wonderful explores how emotional, spiritual, and physical intimacy all work together. The Good Guy’s Guide to Great Sex also features Couple Projects at the end of each chapter and very specific “Good Guy Dares” to help you woo your wife in and out of the bedroom as you find your way to a delightful, God-given passion.”

Admittedly, I have not read this one, but have read some wonderful reviews.

“Bring greater satisfaction to your relationship in every way–emotionally, spiritually, and physically–whether you’re preparing for your honeymoon or are empty nesters looking for a new spark.

Are you wondering if there’s more to your sex life than the status quo? Or maybe you have questions about your upcoming marriage that aren’t exactly appropriate for the rehearsal dinner? This edition of The Good Girl’s Guide to Great Sex from tell-it-like-it-is blogger and speaker Sheila Wray Gregoire has been completely updated and expanded to include new research from surveys of more than twenty-five thousand people. “

I have read the original edition of this one, and can’t wait to get this one when it comes out in March.

This is something fun to do, as well as a legacy item that you can one day share with your children and grandchildren.
