Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas & Tips for Self-Love
We should all be experiencing mind-blowing sex, or at the very least, a tender massage every day. Let’s face it, though–unless you’re an unemployed newlywed, that’s just not happening. For couples, Valentine’s Day is a happy excuse to slow down and come together. For singles, it’s the perfect opportunity to celebrate self-love.
In the weeks and days leading up to Valentine’s Day, Taboo sees a lot of new faces. We get asked for gift advice more than any other time of year. It’s fantastic, and my inclination to be overly enthusiastic and provide too many options.
Allow me, here, to narrow down my selections. I present to you my top picks in four categories: Romantic, Sensual, Naughty, and Just for You.
I talk about it every year, but I can’t express how much I love this rose. The Vibrating Rose by Evolved Novelties is a powerful, silicone bud atop a bendable shaft. It features multiple speeds, is waterproof, and can be used internally or externally. Best of all, it’s a ROSE. Instead of eventually wilting, it provides countless climaxes. AND it’s affordable! Get yours here!
Be Romanced Gift Sets from Dona include bubble bath, massage oil, body topping, linen spray, rose petals, and a tea light. So, everything you need, except for a vibrating rose and a bottle of champagne. Available in three scents, this kit is truly the total package for pampering someone you love, and the prelude for a long, sensual evening. Get yours here!
Put your message where it counts with a candy heart butt plug! Six color, size, and message combinations make expressing yourself a breeze! Whether you dare your date by giving one as a gift, or surprise him by wearing it, a candy heart butt plug guarantees a fun and adventurous Valentine’s Night! Get yours here!
JUST FOR YOU
For me, this category was the hardest because I own a crazy number of toys that I consider special and irreplaceable. I just might make us all breakfast in bed this Valentine’s Day. My ultimate choice for celebrating self-love is one of my longtime favorites, the Lelo Siri. A powerful, quiet, rechargeable clitoral stimulator with an unbeatable shape, I cannot think of a single woman who wouldn’t fall in love with this toy. Also, it comes in pink and red, so it’s festive. Get yours here!
If you’re single this year, don’t ignore or hate on the holiday, but instead show yourself some love! Pamper yourself all day. If you’re local, start with our Taboo Brunch. Follow it up with a massage and then take yourself to dinner, or order in. Finish your evening with a bubble bath and a toy… and maybe a box of chocolates!
