25 offbeat Valentine gift ideas for a sweet, sexy, & smoldering Valentine's Day #Shopping#gifts#holidays#jewelry#valentine's day Posted Jan 30 2019 Catherine Clark bijouxandbits Love in Abundance Heart Necklace If you celebrate the silliness of Valentine's Day, this roundup of offbeat Valentine gift ideas is for you. And if you don't, I totally get it. But it doesn't have to be all about partners and love and junk. It can be about friendship, self love, and lots of, ahem, playtime, too. Here are 25 Valentine's Day gifts that are sincere, goofy, spiritual, glam, and maybe totally for you or your partner(s). Keep an eagle eye out for a shout-out to our publisher's new passion project (literally)… It's You, It's Always Been You Card from Unleash the monkeys I Love You Necklace from GLDNxLayeredAndLong Sterling Silver Anatomical Heart Pendant from Celeste Jewelery Micro black diamond skull necklace from Iz & Co. The Cure – Robert Smith card from Lost Plots Shop Modern Geometric Diamond Necklace from Joseph Jewelry Got You a Unicorn card from Sweet Ingenuity Resin Ring – Flamingo Pink from Sloane Jewelry Design Moon Stud Earrings from Brilliant Earth Happy Valentines Gay card from The Punky Bunny Kama Sutra rolling pin from The Best Pin Ever Sterling silver necklace from BBBGEM Moondust Hex Cuff Links from Forge & Fountain PROS BEFORE BROS available here I'd be remiss in a post about Valentine's Day if I didn't mention our publisher Ariel Meadow Stalling's newly released erotic memoir about her experience in healing through professional domination. But the kicker is that it's a GORGEOUS art book as well that comes with one-of-a-kind, hand-stamped raw brass wearable art. Here's a quick hit of what it's all about: PROS BEFORE BROS is a true story about sex work and grabbing your own healing by the balls, the narrative explores identity, feminism, shame, surrender, gender roles, BDSM, empowerment, embodiment, and trying to get out of your own damn head. The book is intended as a talismanic object, designed to be held and felt deeply. A compact 4"x6" luxe hardback, it fits in your back pocket (in part because it really wants to touch your butt). The gold-embossed canvas cover feels good under your fingers, and the cover illustration by Seatac artist Stasia Burrington stands on its own as a work of art. Each book is sold as a pairing with one of two jewelry options, exclusive wearable art pieces designed by the author in collaboration with Tacoma, WA-based wearable art and jewelry designer, Squirrel vs Coyote. If you don't know if this kind of thing is up your alley, I get it. Give the excerpt a read before you decide. It's super limited edition, so if you want to snag a book/jewelry set for yourself or your partner(s), head here.
