Attention guys! If you’re looking for a Valentine’s Day gift every woman is guaranteed to love here it is: Your adoring attention. That’s right – this year, instead of falling back on the old stand-bys of chocolates, flowers or jewelry, why not give the woman in your life the gift of your time?

Face it fellows. Your women are in the relationship because they want to spend time with you more than anyone else in the world. Your time and attention combined with a bit of creativity are sure to enhance your efforts at romance. Here are a few tips from the experts at Lush, makers of fresh, handmade cosmetics, on how to seduce your sweetie this Valentine’s Day.

Massage Your Love

You don’t have to send your sweetheart to a trendy spa to massage your romance. Create a relaxing spa atmosphere right in your own home. Dim the lights. Put on a CD of soothing New Age music. Light lavender or rose scented candles. Drape the bed in plush towels of Egyptian cotton, strewn with rose petals.

For the massage itself, try massaging areas where stress and strain most commonly collect – neck, shoulders, back, calves and feet.

Shower (or Bathe) Her with Affection

Few end-of-day retreats are as relaxing as a warm bath. Having that bath drawn for you, and that special someone scrubbing your back, can wash away the stress of the day.

Treat your love to a luxurious bath or shower by setting the stage and using indulgent bath products. Again, dim the lights and place candles throughout the room. Remember, you’ll likely be using scented shower gel or bath soap, so choose unscented candles or ones with a very light aroma. Have a glass of her favorite cool beverage at hand. Warm a plush bath towel in the dryer to prevent post-bath chills.

Be sure to choose a bath product that matches both your loved one’s preferences and the mood you want to set. You can’t go wrong with a bath bomb – a special aroma therapeutic ballistic that effervesces essential oils when placed in the bath water.

If your sweetheart prefers showers, surprise her by installing a rainfall shower head and scrubbing her back with shower gel.

However you choose to express your love this Valentine’s Day, remember your loving attention is the gift that will always fit.
