5 Unusual Gift Ideas for Valentine’s Day
This Valentine’s Day at Kiiroo we’re offering somewhat of a challenge to each and every one of our readers: Celebrate the occasion, yes, but do so in your own way.
Defy conventions, laugh in the face of conventions, and relish in the thrilling sensation of embracing a new way to enjoy the season of love.
We’re also here for you.
The gauntlet may have been firmly thrown down but we’re here to assist you in this particular challenge rather than to act as your opponents. Kiiroo prioritizes your sexual happiness, after all, and that’s just what we’re hoping to foster for this Valentine’s.
So let’s embrace that sense of unity as we brainstorm together—looking at five unusual adult products to surprise your lover with for Valentine’s. And, to be completely fair, we’re actually going to look at five items each for both Her, Him, and those who want to keep things a bit more gender inclusive/neutral.
Let’s get shopping!
1. A Strapless Strap-On
Strap-on dildos are nothing new. They’ve been used for many centuries as the pegging penis of choice for eager couples all over the world, in addition to empowering the wearer with their phallic prowess. But much less well-known is that you can actually get pegging dildos that don’t require a harness at all.
Dubbed ‘Strapless strap-ons’ these sex toys work by having an internal bulb which the user keeps in place with their kegel muscles. The resulting sex session allows this bulb to provide internal stimulation for the user where there would otherwise be none and can generally feel more natural. Yes, please!
2. A Clit Pump
Suction-based sex toys may be rising in popularity but the clit pump still feels like somewhat of a poor relation.
This may be due to nerves or simply the medical-esque appearance of the typical clit pump, but don’t let this deter you!
Clit pumps enhance blood flow to this sensitive area, creating overwhelming orgasms.
Be careful, though! Damaging your/her body to chase after the perfect orgasm is not recommended.
Do your research, play it safe, and watch as your partner becomes a clit pump convert.
3. Some Vibrating Jewelry
Many women would consider their vibrator to be a cherished item of intimacy but one that typically has to stay hidden away (no matter how much they might admire them), but this is not the case with sex jewelry.
Surprise your lover with one of the many discreet and beautiful pieces of vibrating jewelry that have hit the markets in recent years and watch her wear her pleasure with pride (or keep it as a playful secret that only you truly know about).
4. Some O-Gel
Lubricant is finally getting the love that it rightly deserves in the bedroom, but there are other options too.
O-Gel is intended to be used in much smaller measurements—typically a single dollop placed on the finger and then rubbed into the clitoris—and can create a minty cooling of passionately heated sensations. If your lover has never heard of (let alone tried) O-Gel then now might be the perfect chance to change that. Just make sure they don’t have sensitive skin or any allergies prior to your purchase.
Use lube as an alternative, also comes in a range of tantalizing sensations
5. A Pelvic Floor Exerciser
Not the most romantic or immediate of gifts in the short-term but potentially life-changing in the long term. Thanks to a certain Fifty Shades series we pretty much all know what jiggle balls are, but there’s an array of far more sophisticated and targeted kegel exercisers out there too.
Usually working like TENS machines, these exercises work in the long-term to provide increased sexual pleasure and muscle control. This is a bonus both physically and mentally; there are few things more affirming than feeling like you’re in control of your own sexual strength.
1. A Ball Stretcher
Toys like Cock rings, Cock cages, Jiggle balls, are commonplace nowadays, but much more exotic and unfamiliar to most male users are ball stretchers.
Such products can come as chunky rings, which wrap around and forcibly stretch the scrotum out, a full enclosure for the ball sack, or ever and cock-and-ball combo.
In all cases ball stretchers allow users to experience their testicles in a manner that they may have otherwise avoided, presenting new options for play.
Do your research. Safety comes first!
2. A Urethral Sounding Kit
This may be one for the more adventurous lover as, depending on your man, it may send some potential users running in terror.
Urethral sounding kits are a set of typically stainless still metal rods (of varying diameter) which can be slowly and carefully inserted into the urethra, allowing the user to experience sensation both inside of their shaft and outside of it (should they choose to include that element).
Urethral sounding is a niche fetish with a specific set of safety rules, but take the time to invest in it together and you may find that this Valentine’s gift heightens your sense of trust and communication more than you could have imagined.
3. A Male Vibrator
Ladies may traditionally have ‘all the fun’ but now there are quite a few options for the gents out there too, and many are well worth exploring.
Treat your partner to their very own male vibrator (or, as they’re sometimes called, ‘guybrator’) and watch them discover just why vibrators come in such high demand.
Again, this is a wonderful chance to explore new sensations, but a male vibrator may still feel a whole lot more familiar than a rod in the urethra, so this one is the safer bet for those more reserved gents out there.
4. A Chastity Belt
Depriving your partner of sex on the sexiest day of the year might seem cruel and unusual, but that’s kind of the point.
If you’re planning on gifting your partner a chastity device then do so in the morning and take part in the containment. Then make it clear that they can’t be released until you allow them to be.
On an average day, this would be a huge turn on for some guys. On Valentine’s Day?
It’s a good thing they’ll have a device to help contain themselves because otherwise, you might not make it out of the bedroom at all.
5. A Porn Subscription
Many men love porn but a lot also keep it a secret from their partners or treat it with a certain degree of shame.
Here at Kiiroo, we say ‘Boo to that!’
The benefits of being open about each other’s porn habits and watching porn together are well documented and there should be no shame in your partner satisfying their desires in a variety of ways (you wouldn’t want someone to try and control or restrict your sexual habits, right?)
Show your partner that you understand this by getting them a porn subscription. Who knows? It might even open up some new avenues for both of you.
1. Safer Sex Items
Condoms, femidoms, and sexual dams aren’t generally seen as sexy, and that’s why this particular gift may be an unusual one. But exploring new items together is always thrilling and nowadays the safer sex market has users practically spoiled for choice.
It’s also easier and kinder on your bank balance to buy a bunch of safer sex items and splay them out for your partner to discover with you. Doing so doesn’t just show that you value their sexual health (and your own) but also acts as a promise or preview of all the things you might be able to try out together. Trust me—you’ll have plenty of options.
2. An Adult Coloring Book
Colouring books are trending right now in so many different aspects of life, and the adult world is no exception.
There are an array of adult coloring books now available to purchase, so find your favorite one and gift it to your lover for some erotic therapy.
The important part of this gift is to allow your partner the room to explore their own creativity at their own pace before revisiting the book with them when they’re ready to show you. From there you can show your artistic appreciation however you both wish.
3. A Dragon’s Claw
Oh, that Fifty Shades, it sure is the gift that keeps on giving in terms of broadening our knowledge of the BDSM lexicon, but it does have some gaps in its knowledge that allow you to keep a few surprises ready for any kinky Valentine’s plans.
Dragon’s/Cat’s claws are a set of metal claws that act very similarly to a pinwheel—looking lethal and delivering sharp and varied sensations but with very little actual threat. Surprise your partner with one of these when they’re bound and gagged and watched their eyes widen as they imagine just how much their body will soon be squirming.
4. Your Vulva/Penis
Perhaps one of the most unexpected (but also intimate) gifts on this list, there are many clone-a-genital kits on the market nowadays and, if you’re feeling bold, there’s nothing stopping you from using one to gift your lover a replica of your glorious genitals this Valentine’s Day.
Penis kits tend to get the advantage in that they’re usually functional (whereas the vulvas are more decorative) but there are also options out there to make chocolate clones, glow in the dark clones, and even candle clones. Because nothing says ‘I love you’ like giving your partner the power to melt your genitals while all you can do is watch.
5. The Latest Sex Tech
We may be a little biased on recommending this last point but sex tech such as the Kiiroo Onyx, Pearl, and our virtual reality systems are typically on sale around this season and provide the latest and greatest in cutting-edge sex tech.
This is an especially good gift if you’re often separated on business trips but it can also be good for some sexual roleplay, remote domination, or shared porn viewing (essentially combining other elements on this list into one neat bundle).
Sex tech is still a recently emerging field, too, so chances are your partner will be marveling at the newest innovation which you have chosen to gift them.
Again, not that we’re biased.
And That’s All Folks!
It’s so easy to fall into a rut for Valentine’s Day and to pursue the same old gifts and adult options year after year. But we’ve had enough of Valentine’s complacency and we’re hoping you join us in breaking the cycle!
Start browsing adult stores for the strange and the unexpected. Consider trying or doing things that you wouldn’t initially go for and see where this year takes you. Relationships thrive on excitement so embrace this Valentine’s with all the daring that you can and make the plunge. You deserve it!
