Gay Up Your V-Day: 2019 Valentine’s Day Gift Guide

Because your bae deserves the best.

Whether you’re happily coupled or #SingleAF, Valentine’s Day (or “Galentine’s Day” on February 13, take your pick) is an ideal opportunity to spoil that special someone in your life. Even Especially if that “special someone” is yourself.

You deserve it, babe. #20BiTeen has been a hard year, and we’re, like, one horrifying Hollywood sex scandal and zero proper Drag Race episodes into it.


Below, find 10 gifts perfect for a very queer Valentine’s Day.

  1. TomboyX V-Day collection


    Spoil your partner with these heart-patterned undergarments from TomboyX, which are equal parts adorable and comfy. You can support a queer-owned, size-inclusive small business in the process, too—cue the heart-eyes.

    Underwear $20 and up; bras $35 and up, TomboyX

  2. Rainbow iced coffee tumbler

    Encourage your BF to stop being an insufferable gossip and start saving the planet with this cheery, rainbow-hued “Optimism” iced coffee tumbler. I mean, he’s going to get an iced coffee every morning anyway, so you might as well encourage some environmentally-friendly consumption habits in the process.


  3. Moo x Kate Moross journals

    Kate Moross/Moo

    These notebooks, designed with love by non-binary U.K. artist and illustrator Kate Moross, are perfect for that hopeless romantic writer-type in your life. (Totally guilty charged.)

    $24.99 for a set of three, Moo

  4. “Game of Queens” Drag Race card game

    Laurence King

    Is your boo a RuPaul’s Drag Race superfan? Give ’em what they love with the new “Game of Queens” playing cards, a drag queen-themed card game created by Greg Bailey and illustrated by Daniela Henríquez. Yaaas, kween!

    $14.99, Laurence King U.S. (on sale February 4)

  5. Zodiac-themed vibrator

    We’ve already established that astrology is basically gay culture, so why not lean into it with these star sign-themed vibrator sets? Each one comes with a zodiac-themed gemstone necklace, small clit vibrator, and warming balm designed to intensify your orgasm. I can’t stop thinking about how brilliant this idea is, but I’m a very mercurial Gemini, so check back in, like, two hours.

    $40, Good Vibrations
