Sticky Memo Ball
Consider giving a sticky memo ball to your loved one. After opening, take turns writing your favorite expressions of touches on each sticky note. Then play a game—rolling the memo ball and doing whatever suggestion lands on top. Peel that one and add another. Play until your love tanks are full. https://www.poppin.com/Sticky-Memo-Ball-104898.html
