Ah, the holiday whirlwind! From Christmas to New Year's, and now... well, would you look at that! Valentine's Day is just weeks away!
No worries, we get it. Life's hustle can make days blur together, leaving you puzzled on how Valentine's snuck up so quickly. Perhaps the thought of finding the perfect gift for bae (or a self-love treat!) slipped your mind. But worry not, because we're here to help.
Whether you’re in a long-term relationship, exploring a new romantic connection, or simply looking to treat yourself, the quest for the perfect gift is on. Forget the clichéd chocolates and roses this year; it’s time to turn up the heat and gift something that truly sparks joy (amongst other things 😉). So, we’ve curated a list of the 6 best spicy Valentine’s Day gifts that promise to make this day unforgettable.
Dive into erotic novels
Sometimes the wildest adventures start in our own heads, right? And there's no better way to kick-start that journey than with a good erotic novel. Picking the right book can really take you or your partner to new levels of excitement, kind of like setting the scene for your own love story. Whether it's the classic love tales that get you going or the more modern, edgy stuff, there's nothing like a steamy book to spice things up.
Take The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang, for example. It's got that perfect mix of sweet romance and hot moments, or 365 Days by Blanka Lipińska, which is just magnetic with its intense storyline and deep passion. These books are great examples of how a few pages can really pull you into a whole new world of connection and adventure.
Adorn your walls with erotic artwork
Art has the unique power to stir emotions, spark deep thought, and ignite the flames of desire. Opting for erotic artwork as a Valentine's gift offers a sumptuous visual feast that celebrates the human form's beauty and the complex dance of human desire. When choosing a piece, consider the innovative works of emerging artists featured in exhibitions like the Museum of Sex's NSFW: Female Gaze. Artists such as Lissa Rivera, Amanda Charchian, and Taira Rice, among others, offer fresh perspectives on sexuality, gender, and the female gaze through their compelling and diverse works.
These artists use their personal narratives and fantasies to explore and deconstruct traditional portrayals of sexuality, inviting viewers into new realms of erotic imagination. Whether it's the intimate photographic explorations of Amanda Charchian, the evocative narratives captured by Lissa Rivera, or the bold, conceptual pieces by Taira Rice, each artist brings a unique voice to the conversation around erotic art. Choosing a piece from such artists not only adds a touch of sensuality to your space but also supports the vibrant community of emerging talent in the art world, making your Valentine's gift even more meaningful.

Enrol in a sex ed course
Delving into knowledge is undeniably sexy, and there’s no richer way to deepen your connection with your partner than embarking on a journey of shared learning. Nancy’s very own adult sex ed course, Own Your O: The Shame-Free Guide to Self-Pleasure, is an excellent choice for couples looking to broaden their horizons and enhance their intimacy. Crafted by leading Asia sexologist Sara Tang, this meticulously designed course is a voyage into the heart of pleasure, offering a safe and inclusive space to explore, understand, and celebrate your desires.
Own Your O is tailored to break down barriers and illuminate the nuances of pleasure, promoting open dialogues and fostering a deeper comprehension of one's own and each other's bodies. Covering a broad spectrum of topics from the intricate art of touch that can enhance closeness to the scientific complexities of arousal that amplify every sensation, the course is designed to engage both the curious beginner and the seasoned enthusiast.
Indulge in aphrodisiacs
Set the stage for an unforgettable night of passion with a carefully curated selection of aphrodisiacs, those tantalising delights renowned for their desire-kindling properties. Start with the timeless classics like succulent strawberries dipped in rich, dark chocolate, a duo celebrated for its sensual appeal and taste. But why stop there when the world of aphrodisiacs is brimming with exotic spices and intriguing foods?
Venture into the realm of the exotic with the subtle heat of saffron, known for its ability to enhance arousal and add a luxurious touch to any dish. Indulge in the velvety richness of avocados, a symbol of love and fertility since Aztec times. Consider the piquant allure of chilli peppers, their capsaicin content sending waves of warmth and euphoria through your body 🌶
Don't overlook the succulence of oysters, long revered as a potent symbol of love, their zinc content boosting both desire and overall well-being. And for a sweet finish, the delicate aroma of vanilla can elevate the mood, its comforting and arousing fragrance weaving through your senses.
Explore with toys
Now, not that we're biased here, but we genuinely believe that sex toys are timelessly excellent gifts. I mean, come on! They truly are the gifts that keep on giving (just remember to keep them charged 😉).
Here at Nancy, we've curated a selection of toys perfect for gifting yourself or a lover. Take Uno, for example, a bullet-style vibrator with a tapered tip designed for precise stimulation. It's ideal for beginners but equally fantastic for sexperts. And then there's Lem, your dependable air suction buddy that's all about delivering those breathtaking orgasms.
And the best part? Both are sensational for solo play and even more electrifying with a partner—whether they're just watching or actively joining in.
Let me repeat: these are gifts that keep on giving, truly!
