Create Romance with an Unexpected Gift

Getting gifts during a holiday, like Valentine's Day, is always nice (and hopefully appreciated).

However, it's the non-holiday days of the year when we receive a little something that really can bring those magic, filled-with-intimacy moments. It takes you back to those nostalgic 'newbie days' when you wrote each other love notes, endless emails and texts, and…

Do Aphrodisiacs Really Work?
