6 Valentines That Support Women-Owned Businesses
House of Wise Sex Kit
House of Wise is on a mission to help women take control of their sexy side while kicking ass in life. The HoW Sex Kit comes with CBD Sex Gummies made with organic, pleasure-enhancing ingredients and Sex Serum to crank up the sensation.
Reviewer Lauren N. says the Sex Kit is a "Killer combo for the big O."
"I could immediately tell the Sex Gummies helped with lubrication . . . my saliva glands were more watery, as were other parts of me. Pair those Gummies with the Serum, and WOW."
Mentionables Body-Positive Lingerie
Lingerie is a classic gift pick that says, “You’re beautiful, and your body deserves to glow.” Ditch the mall brands and go for a mom-founded and women-run company, Mentionables, which uses model-free product styling to help celebrate body positivity. You’ll have to use your very vivid imagination to pick the hottest look. Red crotchless teddy, anyone?
The Statement Box from Mented Cosmetics
Mented Cosmetics is a women-founded and Black-owned brand that empowers people of all skin tones to rock beautiful cosmetics. The Statement Box is an every-other-month subscription for makeup lovers that includes three products; choose from full-size foundations, nude lipsticks, and eye shadows. Try Mented’s shade finder before ordering to get the best match.
The Collection (Trio) from Starla Alcohol-Removed wines
Want the sexy celebration without the hangover (or restless night, or low libido . . . you get the gist)? Starla’s wines only contain 0.5% alcohol by volume without tasting like sugary grape juice. We love The Collection Trio for getting your favorite taste of a red blend, sauvignon blanc, and sparkling rosé as a valentine.
The Maudern Kit from Maude
Maude is a women-owned and inclusive personal care brand that brings simplicity and elegance to self-love. The Maudern Kit makes a great gift, combining its soft-touch vibrator, organic lube, condoms, bath salts, and coconut milk bath blend in one surprising package. And yes, the vibe is completely bath-friendly.
The Chocolatey Classic from Milk Bar
Last but certainly not least on our list comes decadence from Milk Bar in the form of a chocolatey cake and truffles combo: The Chocolatey Classic. The women-founded bakery uses quality ingredients to spread joy through humanitarian causes like donating cakes to underprivileged children and those on the frontlines of COVID-19. Milk Bar’s selection of cakes, truffles, and cookies (complete with gluten-free options) are available with shipping nationwide for your long-distance Valentine.
