Agent Provocateur ‘The Game’ €24
Is she a player? Bring your game on with this cleverly disguised as a hardback book strip poker game set. Concealed inside you'll find all you need for an erotically charged game of poker: enough chips for six players, a deck of cards and much more.. There are no losers in this game!
Louboutin Nail Polish €45
Red is the colour of energy, passion and action. But instead of buying the famous Louboutin shoes, why not surprise her with a Louboutin hot red nail polish! Rouge Louboutin… a timeless, vibrant red that suits any skin tone. This is a true objet d’art of a dramatic 8-inch height inspired by the tallest heel Christian Louboutin ever created- the Ballerina Ultima. Yes, it might be the most expensive nail polish on the market at the moment, but it is definitely a gift she won’t expect and one that she will wear..
Whip me, Bite me, Eat me, Tease me..
Agent Provocateur Lynx Hold Up Stockings €55
Why not say it in provocative style with this deliciously playful hold-up, complete with a tantalising message to beguile onlookers as you leave the room. A 15 denier champagne base is decorated with a handwritten-effect slogan running up the narrow seam at the back of the leg: ‘Whip me, bite me, eat me, tease me’. In a softly stretchy style, finished with a black opaque heel and welt. I’m not sure if that gift is more for the woman or the man.. or both?..
