Valentine’s Day 2014: 10 best erotic toys and games

Whatever you have planned for tonight, there’s still time to spice things up (tastefully) in the bedroom

Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to involve fancy meals in restaurants that double their prices, it can just be about spending some quality time together. And if that quality time involves some toys and games to spice things up a bit, all the better.

So sit back, stick on some Marvin Gaye and relax, as we take you through our pick of the 10 best erotic gifts, from Agent’s Provocateur’s cheeky Charades Game to Poême’s aphrodisiacal Dark Chocolate Body Paint.

Verdict:

If you’re after something subtle and not too out there, the Jimmy Jane candle smells sumptuous and rubs into the skin perfectly – it’s a great way to liven up a massage. For couples feeling a bit more adventurous, the Organza Handcuffs are less restrictive and far more comfortable than your average prisoner style cuffs.
