Valentine's Day Gift Ideas for ANY Relationship Status

Historically, Valentine’s Day has been a holiday reserved for the coupled up. In fact, 50% of marriage proposals still happen on 14 February and some statistics indicate that around 6% more babies are conceived on the Day of Love.

But just because you haven’t been struck by Cupid’s Bow in what seems like *forever* doesn’t mean that you should miss out on the holiday fun. At least as far as the bedroom is concerned.

V-Day Fun for Everyone

Think Valentine’s Day is for couple’s only?

Think again! Things are, fortunately, starting to change as we broaden our definition of love and celebrate those who bring us joy. Galentine’s Day – a day to celebrate your gal pals – takes place on 13 February each year and is now firmly cemented in popular culture. Data also shows that we are spoiling our pets on Valentine’s Day, too, with over R11.7 billion being spent on our furry friends in 2020.

Advancements in technology also mean that there is a sex toy to suit any relationship status, from single to long-time lovers. Here’s our gift guide of naughty gifts to treat your loved one, or yourself, to this Valentine’s Day (and every day after that, too!).

Riding Solo

You don’t need a partner to get next-level satisfaction. Sex toys come with all the pleasure and none of the drama, anyway! Use the Month of Love to reconnect with yourself, both mind AND body, and enjoy some much-needed ‘me-time’.

Our recommendations:

    ION PLEASURE AIR™ STROKER | ARCWAVE

      PREMIUM 2 CLITORAL STIMULATOR | WOMANIZER

      Long-Distance Lovers

      Sure, you and bae might be miles apart. But innovative sex toys mean that you can feel physically connected no matter where you are. Simply connect your toys to your devices and you can start tantalising each other from afar.

      Our recommendations:

      SAM NEO INTERACTIVE SUCTION & VIBRATION MASTURBATOR | SVAKOM

      EDENY APP-CONTROLLED CLITORAL VIBRATOR | SVAKOM

      Friends With Benefits

      If you’re in a strictly physical relationship with no emotional connection, that’s cool. But it’s even cooler if you remember to stay safe by keeping yourself protected while you are getting out and getting laid. No excuses!

      Our recommendations:

      • Condoms These are crucial when it comes to protecting yourself from sexually-transmitted diseases. The Billy Boy Coloured Condoms offer more space, more shades and all the safety.

      COLOURED CONDOMS | BILLY BOY

      ANTI-BACTERIAL PREMIUM TOY CLEANING SPRAY | LELO

      • Lube Not just used to make things *feel* better, lube can also keep everyone safe by reducing the friction that can cause discomfort or break condoms. Add some flavour to your sex life with the Splash Taste Berry Water-Based Lube.

      TASTE BERRY FLAVOURED WATER-BASED LUBE | SPLASH™

      Boo’d Up

      Have you been dating for some time and have assigned each other the terms ‘boyfriend’ and ‘girlfriend’? Being committed doesn’t have to mean the end of bedroom fun (especially when there are so many toys for two!)

      Our recommendations:

      EMPOWER VIBRATING COCK RING | ROCKS-OFF

      ELLA NEO INTERACTIVE VIBRATING BULLET | SVAKOM

      TWO-VIBE COUPLES VIBRATOR | ROCKS-OFF

      Put a Ring on It (But Not *That* Kind!)

      It’s a common misconception that with marriage comes a non-existent sex life. Adding some sex toys can spice up even the stalest intimate relationships and help you both relive the romps of your youth.

      Our recommendations:

      DITTO VIBRATING PROSTATE MASSAGER WITH REMOTE | WE-VIBE

      MOXIE PANTY VIBRATOR | WE-VIBE

      LIMITED EDITION BDSM GIFT BOX | SVAKOM

       But before you get down to business with your new sex toys, you need to…
