To Harness Big Love in a Small Container: I Love You Projector Heart Necklace
With its shimmering, crystal-lined heart pendant made with rose gold, this necklace is undeniably romantic, yet it’s also something that she can claim to have purchased for herself. Only the two of you will know its secret: The center of the pendant has a micro-engraved message of love that can be projected on the wall with the help of a flashlight.

For Him: Engravable Brass Compass With Leather Carry Case If you’re looking for a masculine gift, how
If you’re looking for a masculine gift, how about an antique brass compass with a handsome leather carrying case? You can even have it engraved with the text of your choice. A romantic option might be something like “I’d be lost without you,” but you could also opt for something with more subtlety if you’d like to keep your relationship a secret.
Who would suspect ulterior motives behind a compass?
To Connect on a Higher Plane: Rose Quartz Crystal Tree
If she’s the spiritual sort, she’s sure to appreciate the meaning embedded in this crystal tree decoration. Not only is rose quartz known as the “love crystal,” but it’s seen here blooming from a raw fluorite stone that symbolizes confidence, clarity, and direction, so it’s perfect for a relationship that’s still in transition.
One day, your love won’t have to be expressed through hidden symbols. It’ll be a proud tree growing tall.

The batteries only need occasional recharging, and it can be stashed in desks, kitchens, glove compartments, and more. You can break open the Chardonnay whenever opportunity strikes!
A Secret Worth Keeping: Da Vinci Code Mini Cryptex Lock
If you enjoy the secretive nature of your relationship, you can play it up with the ultimate puzzlemaster gift. It’s a “cryptex,” or a rolling wheel of letters that have to be arranged in a specific order to unlock its inner chamber, and you can fill that chamber with whatever trinkets that you’d like.
Give them a gift that’s as intriguing as their gaze across a crowded room.

Make all kinds of cocktails with its collection of attractive, smoothly-polished tools, and neatly pack them up again when you’re done. You’ll leave no trace of your rendezvous.
A Token of Your Affection: Heart Shaped Glass Jar
You have to be careful about mementos when you’re in a secret relationship, but this heart-shaped jar can pass for an innocent piece of room decor.

The possibilities are only as limited as your imagination.
To Stay Warm on Cold and Lonely Nights: Adult Weighted Blanket Queen Size
