The experts at Lovehoney have given us their top tips to ensure this is your steamiest Valentine's Day yet.
Lingerie is far sexier than flowers and chocolates, but nothing will kill the mood like wriggling into (and out of) ill-fitting underwear.
If you can, have a rummage through your SO’s underwear collection, and make a note of dress and cup size (for her), waist measurements (for him) and the styles and colours you find. If matching sets are her thing, you can’t go wrong with a bra and knicker combo. If his bedroom drawers are boxer central, posing pouches probably aren’t the right option.
One-size lingerie and open-cup bras are great if you're not able to physically get to her lingerie collection.

Toys for two
Toys are a great way to introduce new sensations to your sex life, whether you’re after a knicker vibe for date night, a feather tickler to up your foreplay game or something to spoil your long-distance lover.
If you’re spending a whole weekend together, a kit designed for two (or more, if that’s what you’re into) is great. Tease, tantalise and try new things with the Lovehoney Wild Weekend Mega Couples Sex Toy Kit.

Set the mood
You’ve got the gift sorted, so now it’s time to create a sensual atmosphere. Get rid of that overflowing laundry basket, stack of coursebooks or bedside mug collection. Think zero clutter and soft lighting – a few carefully placed lamps or candles should do the trick (maybe get the LED ones to avoid breaking those accommodation rules).
Heady aromas and sweet scents can heighten the senses, so have a deliciously scented massage bar or oil on hand – if it’s lickable, all the better.

Fun and games
We’re not suggesting you swap your steamy plans for a Scrabble tournament, but games can be a winning choice if you’re spending a not-so-quiet night in.
There are some great games for couples out there, from foreplay dice to board games like Nookii, and - if you want to skip straight to sexytime - Kama Sutra playing cards.
