Even if you’re hoping for something naughty this year, you still might not want to find yourself opening a 9 inch silicone surprise in front of your nearest and dearest.

That’s why we’ve come up with these treasures you can give to your partner, regardless of your company. You might know there’s an intimate treat or two in waiting, but with these 8 subtle yet sexy gifts, nobody else has to.

A Red Rose

Lovehoney Rose Clitoral Suction Stimulator

Unlike traditional bouquets, this pretty petal will never wilt – and its hidden seductive powers will have your lover blooming with sexual excitement. Made from velvety-soft silicone with a gorgeous rose design, this vibrator could easily be mistaken for an ornament. But when the lights are out and it’s time to play, you’ll find it's blessed with 10 intense suction modes, sure to blow your partner’s socks off.

What customers say: "I was given this as a birthday present by my husband who never usually gives me flowers. It is a beautiful shape and can be left out without anyone being any the wiser to what it really is. Very easy to use, right spot located quickly and with the various speeds and patterns I can be quick or enjoy a slower more leisurely pace. My husband has also tried it out on his nipples which he really liked."

A Sleep Mask

Lovehoney Oh! Satin Blindfold

Suggest a little sensory play with a gorgeous mask – or better yet, make it a gift set.

Increase their anticipation, and every touch will feel more electric.

What customers say: "This satin blind bold feels great on the skin and is not tight against your eyes that you feel like your going blind. It sits perfectly. It arrives in normal subtle packaging and was well received by my other half."
