Valentine’s Day is for everyone: single, in a relationship or “it’s complicated”. It doesn’t only have to be about celebrating a relationship, it can simply be about celebrating yourself. And this can take a few forms, whether it’s a new sex toy, pretty undies or a long bath with some fun products. Here, three Valentine’s Day gifts to celebrate yourself this year…
A Naughty Soap
What’s better than a long bath (or quick shower, you know, water restrictions and all that)? Winding down in some warm water is a great way to relax and spend time with yourself and adding a naughty soap is the perfect way to spice it up. These soaps from LUSH are super cheeky (excuse the pun) and make lathering up way more fun. The Peachy soap is packed with elemi and davana to keep your skin smelling fruity and fresh, while the Aubergine is bursting with fruity bergamot, zingy litsea cubeba and sweet tonka and its scent has stamina, lasting on the skin long into the night. Bonus: they haven’t been tested on animals and are plastic-packaging free!
Personally, nothing makes me feel more attractive than knowing that I have good underwear on. It doesn’t matter that no one’s necessarily going to see it, it just makes me feel good. Luna Intimates specialises in ethical lifestyle intimates and delicates that are handmade in Cape Town. These pretty pieces come in a variety of designs and you can choose anything from panties, bralettes or matching shorts and tops sets. They’re a real spoil and will have you feeling like magic.
The Ultimate Sex Toy
Of course, it’s always fun to take self-love more literally and get yourself a sex toy. The Svakom Cookie Rotating Clitoral Vibrator from Désir features small rotating tentacle-like arms that swirl, hug and caress the clitoral area. This uniquely designed toy will you give you deep, powerful and intense orgasms. It’s made from soft body-safe silicone, is discreet in size and is travel-friendly, waterproof and easy to use. Winning all round.
