The holidays can be dicey if you're dating someone: What should you give your new lover as a gift? On one hand, you don't want to be too safe (you can do better than chocolate); on the other, you don't want to go too risqué (no, guys, she doesn't want edible panties). Like in so many other areas of life, books are the solution! This holiday season, you can give your crush something spicy, which shows off your flirty side, or one that shows off your emotional depth. We've got the perfect books for you, whether you're just flirting or aiming to please a longtime partner.
