Choosing that perfect romantic gift for the man in your life can often be a daunting task. One of the reasons that gifts can often "flop" is because the person doing the giving is shopping for themselves instead of the recipient. It is important to remember that your significant other may not share your taste in things such as movies, art, literature or sports. Keep their specific likes and dislikes in mind when shopping for that perfect romantic gift.
A couple's massage is a great way for both of you to enjoy a treat. They are relaxing and usually inexpensive, depending on the spa you choose. Contact some spas and salons in your area to get an idea of what they offer and the price range.
Have a sexy photo taken of you in your favorite lingerie and then have it framed. Find a reputable photographer in your area who takes boudoir shots and set up an appointment to discuss the type of photo you want, prices, backgrounds and props.
Pick out a new sexy scent for the man in your life that you can also enjoy every time he wears it. Make sure you take his tastes into consideration. For example, don't chose a musky scent if he dislikes the smell of musk.
A pair of engraved cuff links or an elegant engraved pocket watch can give your man a sexy touch of class, and he can think of you every time he gets dressed up.

Cashmere Sweater or Scarf
Cashmere material is both soft, silky and luxurious to wear. Buy your man a soft comfortable cashmere sweater or scarf and then apply just a tiny bit of your favorite perfume to the item so he can think of you every time he wears it.
Digital Photo Frame
Buy a digital photo frame and fill it with pictures of the two of you together. He can keep this in his office or next to his bed as a reminder of all the romantic times you have had together.
