Although entirely appropriate, the perfect S.O.
Valentine's Day gift isn't bouquets, cards, or chocolates. Instead, the ultimate love token for this upcoming holiday is one that packs a more unique, dual-purpose punch — a.k.a. a present that both parties (givers and receivers) can enjoy (separately or together).
If you find yourself coupled up on February 14, seize the opportunity to get creative and experimental with your gift giving and mood setting. Whether you and your boo want to get sexy, cozy, sentimental,
culinary, adventurous, or competitive, we've got the winning buys ahead to make it happen. From a bouquet made of Reese's peanut butter cups to a best-selling sensual massage oil, luxe bedding, love notes, dark chocolate body paint, and something called an "Arouse Pen," these 19 finds are sure to satisfy the both of you on V-Day. At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team.
