Just like there is more to every relationship than meets the eye, there is a deeper meaning behind the Valentine’s Day gift we choose to give. As George Moufarrej, a leading relationship expert and author of the book “Sexual Euphoria,” told New York Smash, the gift you give to your sweetheart symbolizes your feelings, wants and desires. It can even say a lot about the status of your relationship and where it’s going. Whether you just started dating or you’re a married couple, read on to find out the best Valentine’s Day gifts and their surprisingly sexy symbolic meanings!

George Moufarrej’s Notes: “Chocolate is sweet and an aphrodisiac. When the woman gives the man chocolate, she is showing the man that she is sweet and wants more pleasure in the relationship. Since chocolate is an aphrodisiac, symbolically, the woman is telling the man that she is sexually attracted to him.”


If You’ve Been Dating For Several Months

The watch symbolizes the passage of time, and the passage of time for a woman in such a situation is very important because she wants the relationship to move to the next level (marriage) as quickly as possible. She wants the man to propose as soon as possible.”
