Summer Heat: Gifts that make summer sexier

Posted on Tuesday, August 16

The August heat is here, and there is definitely something about a hot summer that makes us want to get our sexy on. Summer in general is when we all workout a little more, wear a little less, and just altogether feel a little uninhibited. So for this last stretch of summer, please indulge us and let us suggest to you a few things to gift and get to make this summer steamier for you and your SO.

John Varvatos/Tocca Florence
Someone's scent is a great aphrodisiac. There is nothing like a good scent that can elicit sensual feelings. I especially love the familiarity of my boyfriend's smell on my pillow, which naturally makes his favorite cologne a winning gift for me. For him, it's always John Varvatos. For Her, Tocca Florence is my pick. It is my signature scent. I am lost without its subtle and alluring floral scent. I instantly feel confident and sexy when I have it on. When it is gifted to me, I appreciate how well that person knows me.

Agent Provocateur's June Kimono Robe/j. crew Cotton Boxers
Obvious, but a sure starter is lingerie. It's the not-so-subtle way of asking for romance. The message is direct and confident, which is very sexy. For her, a silk robe. I must admit it's pricey, but I keep mine forever: Agent Provocateur's June Kimono Robe. For him (all he needs): Cotton Boxers, J. Crew.

Jack Black/Peter Thomas Roth
Great lotion. Great skin and a great massage are the best outcomes of gifting lotion. It also says how close you are as a couple when you’re secure enough to give it as a gift. For him, Jack Black lotion. A for-men-only product. He will appreciate the exclusivity. For her, Peter Thomas Roth.

Paperless Post
THEGIFTGETTER's TOP PICK! - Alone Time. A picnic, a movie, a stroll wherever, etc. You name it. To deliver the gift, I love Paperless Post — it is my go-to greeting card option. It's a playful, modern, and elegant option for delivering our top pick.

Finally, a wrist watch. Watches, to me, signify strength and power in men and in women; the selection can show personality just as much. Wrist watches can also signify commitment just as much as a ring (ladies – watch out!). Take your pick; for him, Breitling. For her, Cartier all the way.
