Like all my relationships, I have a pretty complicated one with Valentine’s Day. When I’m in a relationship or dating, I’m just like all the other loved up couples who celebrate, but when I’m single on Valentine’s Day, I find the whole thing pretty nauseating. In fact, I’m the kind of girl who binge-watches girl-power movies and plans Galentine’s dates with my friends to remind myself that being single isn’t so bad.

I’m also the kind of girl who buys herself flowers (mostly to make my apartment feel more homely), cooks myself extravagant dinners and buys myself a little treat on those particularly lonely ‘single’ days. So it should come as no surprise to anyone that when I’m single on Valentine’s Day, I buy myself a present. Societal constructs be damned.

If, like me, you enjoy a little ‘to me, from me’ gift on Valentine’s Day, you’ve come to the right place because I’ve created a bit of a wishlist. Hopefully, this list will spark joy and inspire you to gift yourself a little something for the big day.

Valentine’s Day gifts for her

Vush Rose 2, $120

Valentine's Day gifts

Honestly, when you’re single on Valentine’s Day, there’s no greater gift you gave yourself than a damn good orgasm. So why not gift yourself the Vush Rose 2 bullet vibrator?

Mejuri Twin Hoops, $335

I may or may not have been eyeing these mini twin hoops for a while now, so Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to purchase them. They give the illusion of double piercings, minus the pain of having it done — and I’m obsessed with them.

Foreo Luna, $149

This palm-sized cleansing device is precisely what your skincare routine’s been missing. The burr of the brush helps to rid the skin of dirt and impurities while giving your face a gentle massage—a little self-care for those of us who are single on Valentine’s Day.
