Honey Mama's• $24
Lavender Rose Truffle Bars
The sad thing about Honey Mama’s is that it will 100% ruin your enjoyment of any other chocolate treat on the planet. Their decadent truffle bars make any chocolate you’ve ever had pale in comparison and I will tell you right now, if they ever go away I will legit be devastated. Not only are they made from just a few all-natural ingredients, but they satisfy a sweet-tooth in a way that feels nourishing instead of sugary. Every single flavor is a total slam dunk (I was surprised to find I absolutely love tahini tangerine) but for Valentine’s Day, we’d have to go with the apropos Lavender Rose. The unexpected flavor is a total experience and the isn’t a single chocolate bar out there that would look prettier on a bougie dessert board. They’re shipped in packs of four, so keep one and spread the love.
Everlasting Candle Co.• $70
Bringing their gorgeous glow to anywhere from the living room to the bedroom, Everlasting Candle Co. has created what might be the perfect modern candle. The sets include a simple glass vessel and three wick-filled metal “candles” which absorb the included clean-burning oil which isn’t exactly “everlasting”—but close.
The Quickie Kit
Speaking of a gift for both of you, let me introduce the Quickie Kit from the intimacy experts at Foria. Packed with mini versions of their best-selling essentials, it’s the ideal way to explore using CBD in the bedroom. The inclusion of CBD helps to relax and enhance arousal, and some even report that it helps make sex less painful when battling things like endometriosis and other pelvic and genital pain conditions. (What’s sexier than that?) From relieving tension to increasing blood flow, their Sex Oil, Awaken Arousal Oil and Intimacy suppositories can enliven and electrify your time together–even if you’re squeezing it in during naptime.
Jimmy Jane• $129.99
Form Pro 2
Ok, maybe this is sexier than that. Meet the best selling Form Pro 2 from luxury sex toy brand JimmyJane. Ideal for anyone who craves external stimulation, this compact little friend is small but mighty. The three inch tall vibe packs a powerful duo motor that allows each “ear” to vary the vibration and intensity independently which tickles and teases in a way that’s erotic not robotic. There are five vibration patterns and five intensity levels to choose from which are easy to switch between without busting your groove. Since it’s so small, it’s great for partner play but given its prowess, you’re totally going to reach for it solo.
Oh Orgasm Arousal Serum
Sure there are 8,000 nerves down there, but sometimes that big finish is as elusive as your chance to shower in peace. If you’re looking for a way to kick things into gear, the medical grade arousal serum from VSpot may be just the ticket. Developed by gynecologists and scientists, VSPOT OH increases circulation and sensitivity when applied morning and night for two weeks. The result? Those fireworks you’ve been missing. It’s just a tiny bit tingly, but not overly so and makes a great addition in the moment as well.
Esther Perel• $40
Where Should We Begin–A Game of Stories
Infuse date nights with excitement and fresh energy with this fun and beautiful game designed by relationship and intimacy guru Esther Perel. Through prompt cards that set the mood and direction (ex. “Share something crazy”) and story cards that provide the first line of an answer (ex. “A phone number I need to delete…”) you’re guaranteed to learn something new and thrilling no matter how many times you’ve heard their best stories. Get ready for instant memories and enhanced connection.
The Bouqs• $74
A rose-filled bouquet is the most V-Day appropriate gift ever, and none are prettier than the ethereal Whisper arrangement from The Bouqs. Alongside gorgeous fresh and spray roses she’ll find dramatic wisps of dried white pampas grass and a pop of muted mauve courtesy of limonium sprigs. It’s a total stunner.
Urban Stems• $85
Don’t get me wrong, fresh flowers are absolute perfection, but Instagram has made the case for dried arrangements–and they’re not the tacky bathroom decor you might be envisioning. This soft stunner from Urban Stems brings all the organic spa vibes to your powder room or boudoir and lasts for months, no water necessary.
Single-Origin Cashmere Bandana
Scarves and hats are nice, but we’re loving this contemporary twist on cashmere accessories. Cuyana’s impossibly soft 100% cashmere bandana is a dash of timeless elegance that’s not only beautiful but sustainably produced as well.
Sunday Citizen• $120
Nube Ribbed Long Cardigan
If your favorite blanket, your coziest sweater and your utilitarian robe all had a baby, this would be it. From the cloud-soft experts at Sunday Citizen, the Nube Ribbed Long Cardigan is made for lounging but if you dash out to pick up while still wearing it, we wouldn’t blame you.
Real Fun Wow• $40
Minimal but meaningful artwork is a gift everyone gets to enjoy. With a nod to your connection, this simple piece is easy to integrate into almost any decor.
Kinn Studio• $320
Heart Signet Ring
Inspired by the belief that our children do not need us to be perfect, just present—this piece is the perfect gift for a bestie, or yourself. The lay-flat profile means it’s easy to wear even when you’ve got your hands in, well, everything.
Here for the Burn• $35
World's Best Galentine Candle
For the candle obsessed bestie! Choose from one of their three signature scents—a fruity mango guava, a rich Moroccan amber and my personal favorite (which sells out on the regular) a fresh bergamot, grass, tonka bean that I want every room to smell like 24/7.
Sexual pleasure is about all the sensations, and the Lure Deluxe Intimacy Oil can help to heighten them. The silky soft formula is made with just Organic MCT coconut oil and organically grown, full spectrum CBD which is scent-free and flavorless to use with abandon. It’s perfect for loving (or spicy!) massages and when used in your most intimate areas, it can help keep things lubricated which, let’s be honest, is totally key. The best part? Unlike regular lube which is cold, wet and sticky this is the exact opposite. In fact, the softness it leaves behind rivals any fancy moisturizer!
