16 of the Best Valentine's Gifts for Under $40

I love to take this world-wide day for love and affection as a reminder to check in with myself and my relationship (if I'm in one) to make sure I'm feeling good and continuously exploring parts of myself that I can share with my partner/future partners.

Of course, I turned to Lovehoney this year to find some romantic toys to explore new parts of myself and my relationship with! I needed to stick to my 2020 budget, nothing over $40.

So I filtered my price range lowest-highest and found some absolute gems!

Buckle up, there's a fair few.

1. Lovehoney Oh! Foreplay Dice

These dice are such a fun way to break out of your usual solo or partnered routine and let the dice decide for you.

You might just find a new favourite erogenous zone in the process!

2. Lovehoney Oh! XOXO Sex Cheques

This year I’m travelling to a different city without my partner on Valentine’s Day and I’ll be away for the whole weekend.

This cheque book is perfect, I can hide cheques all through our house for him to find while I’m away and pique his interest for my return!

3. Lovehoney Oh! Red Satin Blindfold

This blindfold looks so smooth, and the colour just screams 'hot sex', doesn’t it?!

4. Lovehoney Oh! Romantic Red Rose Petals

While I’m away I’m going to sprinkle these across my hotel room bed so I can come back to a movie moment.

Just me and my favourite vibe for a steamy Valentine’s night.

5. Lovehoney Play With Me: An Activity Book for Adults

My partner and I buy a puzzle book each holiday season to play together while in food comas.

I thought this adult activity book was such a cute homage to our tradition, and a perfectly sexy gift to us!

6. Lovehoney Bondage for Beginners

Bondage can be pretty daunting when you first think about trying it out. Where do you even start?

Luckily, this book has 52 beginner-friendly ways to start, which is one per week for a year!

I also found Lovehoney Oh! Red Silky Bondage Restraints that you could combine with the book to get you started, and still stay under budget!

7. Lovehoney Get Hard Stretchy Silicone Cock Ring Set (3 Pack)

This three pack of cock rings is so inexpensive for what you get! The stretchy silicone is perfect for beginners as it’s super comfortable while still giving you the full effect of the pressure.

8. Sliquid Balance Soak Cherry Blossom Bubble Bath

I often avoid bath products, they irritate my vulva and vagina so I have sad, bubble-free baths.

I was so excited when I saw that Sliquid has their own bubble bath because my Sliquid lubes are uber gentle on my sensitive skin. I can’t wait to try this, I haven’t had a bubble bath in years!

9. Bondage Boutique Rose Gold Necklace Flogger

I love everything about this flogger. I love dual-purpose things, I love owning and showing off my sexuality, I love sex jewellery, I love necklaces that fall below the clothing line and let the mind wonder about where they’re going, I love rose gold and I love floggers.

I feel like this was made for me. I’ve not worn this necklace, but I imagine that if you have a shorter torso (like me), the ends of the flogger could brush against the outer labia if you’re in a dress and tease you throughout the day/night – hot!

10. Male Power Lipstick Kisses Boxer Shorts

A cute outfit for V-Day is a must, so one for my partner…

11. Lovehoney Unwrap Me Red Lace Babydoll

…and one for me!!

12. Rocks Off Scarlet Velvet 10 Function Bullet Vibrator

A perfect travel toy, and in such a lush romantic red. Exactly what I need for my Valentine’s, and perfect to slip between our bodies when my partner and I are together!

13. Lovehoney Power Play 7 Function Classic Vibrator 6 Inch

For internal play, this classic vibe looks like it’ll send me, and my budget, to the heavens.

14. Lovehoney Satin and Leather Spanking Paddle

For the kinky couple, I thought this spanking paddle was the perfect Valentine’s addition to any collection!

15. Lifelike Lover Luxe Realistic Silicone Dildo 5.5 Inch

This hot pink suction cup dildo is everything I want in a Valentine’s gift. Its size looks perfect to make my orgasms explosive.

16. Lovehoney Full Bloom Large Rose Glass Butt Plug 4 Inch

And finally, the pièce de résistance, this gorgeous pink blooming glass butt plug. Isn’t it gorgeous?!

I love glass because it’s perfect for temperature play, and this toy is just too beautiful to not own.

I certainly found some budget-friendly gifts for myself and my partner for Valentine’s, I hope you did too! Happy Valentine’s Day!
