Valentine’s Day is a wonderful opportunity to show the people you love just how much they mean to you. You might especially enjoy Valentine’s Day if one of your love languages is giving and/or receiving gifts! Gift-giving is more than just the monetary value behind the present; it’s more symbolic than that. In this way, gifts are visual symbols of love (or caring.) The intention behind the gift, and the deliberate process of thoughtful choosing and allocating, can be significant to the receiver. What better gift to give than a pleasure! It’s time to fill our cups, baby! Below is a guide for the best sex wellness gifts to give friends, partners, and loved ones.
Sex Boutique Gift Card
Spectrum Boutique is an inclusive and educational pleasure shop based online and in Detroit. Spectrum is geared towards all identities and avoids gendering their products, ensuring that everything in their store can be used by anybody! Their website is easy to navigate with a wide variety of toys, accessories, and educational books to promote healthy attitudes about sexuality. A gift card is an opportunity for the recipient to choose their own adventure. What’s not to love!
My favorite thing about Enby is how inclusive, climate-conscious, and community-focused they are. Finally, a sex toy shop that believes all bodies deserve pleasure! They also donate a portion of their profits to organizations that support Queer/Trans People of Color, which means buying from them is also uplifting historically marginalized communities. We love to see it! I’m obsessed with their astrology themed collections and the Sagittarius Season is especially speaking to me! This diverse and playful collection offers some exciting gift ideas for solo or partner play. My personal favorite is the Womanizer Duo Bordeaux vibrator — highly recommend it!
Not all sex candles are created equal. This all-natural wax blend contains warm Linden Blossom, sweet Honey and Vanilla, and sensual Sandalwood for a subtle scent experience that doesn’t distract from the mood. Enjoy it solo or ahem, not solo by burning the candle until the wax pool reaches the outer edge of the vessel. Extinguish the flame and wait until the wax is cool enough to touch. Slowly pour onto skin, massage in, and enjoy yourself.
Since we’re making pleasure a priority this holiday season, we might as well make safety one, too!

Woo More The Penthouse Suite Bundle sex kit is iconic and sure to please. This is the Rolls Royce of sex gifts.
