The pressure is on. You’ve exhausted the options on Menkind and even though he’d probably quite fancy an adult-sized sumo wrestling suit or a speaker the size of a small hippo, it’s not really the vibe you were going for. “Thoughtful and exciting. Come on woman, think!”
No-one knows your partner better than you, right? As Forest Gump once sagely said, “you go together like peas and carrots”. You’re well versed in each other’s hobbies, you listen to his debrief at the end of each day and you know he hates mushrooms with a vengeance.
So, buying him the perfect gift which says “I know your innermost desires and this proves, beyond doubt, that I’ve been paying attention,” should be no problem… probably. Oh f&*%.
Sit back and take a load off, because – if you’re in London at least – Boots has done the hard work for you. The brand’s Heels Over Head pop-up Bootique was erected in Soho’s 59 Greek Street on Wednesday and for a limited time only (you’ve got until Tuesday), you can visit an emporium packed with gift ideas.
Given a consumer survey revealed Londoners are more likely to prioritise their sexual wellbeing the most (spending 32% more money on it and spending twice as long having sex), this is the focus. Want to spice up your sex life? The upside down concept store sees you walk through a bedroom set-up mounted to the ceiling where you can browse everything from massage oils to vibrators and scented lubes to pleasure rings (just don’t take your mum).
There are popular fragrances from the likes of Giorgio Armani and Paco Rabanne, there’s chocolate truffles, candles and plenty more, all in one place and all of which you can browse solo, or with your partner.
And, if you can’t make it all the way to London, lucky for you, the edit is up online, too. Happy browsing.
