Three things to buy before spending a romantic evening with your partner

If you and your partner are planning to spend a romantic evening together in the near future, there are a few items you should go shopping for before the big night arrives. Read on to find out what these items are.

An edible oil

Edible oils can make your intimate experiences with your partner that much more enjoyable. However, it is important to choose the right type of oil, as one which causes skin irritation, has an unpleasant taste or which reduces the effectiveness of any latex protection you will be using could spoil your special evening.

A product such as the Kama Sutra Oil of Love is an excellent choice for this type of intimate occasion. It can safely be applied to all of the body's erogenous zones without causing skin irritation and, because its formula is water-based, it will not degrade any latex products that it comes into contact with.

Furthermore, this oil comes in several different delicious flavours, so it should be easy to find one which suits you and your partner's preferences.


If you want to create a warm, inviting and relaxed atmosphere, it's important to choose the right type of lighting for the room in which you will be spending time with your partner.

Generally speaking, the gentle light that comes from a candle is far more pleasant and romantic than the stark, glaring light that comes from standard lamps and overhead lights.

In addition to being very cosy, the soft glow of a candle is quite flattering and as such, is ideal if you are a bit self-conscious about your figure and want to look your best during your romantic night in with your partner.

If you decide to purchase a few candles, make sure that you also invest in some candle plates so that they don't tip over after they start to melt.

Some delicious snacks

Sharing a selection of light, delicious snacks can be a very romantic experience (particularly if you choose to include a few foods that are known to be aphrodisiacs).

As such, it's worth shopping for some food for you and your partner a day or two before you are due to meet up with them. Be careful with your choices; ideally, you should opt for items that are easily-shared, are not too messy and that won't leave you feeling uncomfortably full.

Things like strawberries, cherries, oysters (which are said to be an aphrodisiac) and chocolate truffles are all suitable choices.
