Your idea of a book is good. I think "Kama Sutra" would be a great choice.

Actually, just get her something and tell her she likes it. I'm a firm believer in ruling relationships with an iron fist. I'm a busy man and I don't have time to worry about what women want. Just Say'in!

One step at a time boss....I don't think this couple is sexually advanced enough for Couchenetics just yet. But we do sell "Kama Sutra" in the church gift shop....er, I mean church support store. I've PM'd him and instructed him to buy it there, and not on Amazon.

Actually there's a handy K.S. book in all the church pews for easy reference. We like to liven things up at meetings ...

If you know her interests pretty well then I would say a couple of good books are the ticket. Books are personally my favorite gift to give and receive.

I'd suggest an album from her favorite photographer.
