Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching, but so is its ancient predecessor, Lupercalia! While we don’t celebrate this holiday anymore by running naked through the streets, there’s no reason you can’t observe a private celebration running naked through the sheets. To help with that, we’ve searched high and low (fully clothed) to find the best sex toy deals ahead of February 14.

This one just screams Valentine’s Day! Satisfyer’s aptly named Cutie Heart suction toy is a pocket-sized air pulse stimulator shaped like an adorable little heart. The shape lends itself to solo use surprisingly well. During testing, I found the buttons a little finicky, but overall it was a solid suction toy.
Librator’s Fascinator sex blanket is exactly what it sounds like. It has a waterproof lining, a soft exterior, and it rolls up easily when not in use. This is a great pick for anyone with a partner who squirts, or if you just want to make sure your sheets stay dry when you’re having a good time. During testing, I found that the waterproof lining can be a little crinkly at first, but once it’s been used and worn in a little bit, it feels less plasticky.
The Lovense Hush is a vibrating butt plug but instead of having to fumble with buttons on a device awkwardly, it includes a remote control. This feature came in handy during solo use and partnered use; being able to adjust the intensity by remote control makes it a toy that’s versatile and fun to use.
Lelo’s Sila Cruise is a suction toy designed for the slow build. During testing, WIRED reviewer Louryn Strampe praised its wide intensity range, which allows you to start extremely gentle and build to a deep and powerful orgasm. This is the Cruise version from Lelo, which will automatically ramp up the vibration intensity when you press it against your body harder.
This plug doesn’t vibrate and doesn’t have a remote control, but Blush’s Temptasia Pom butt plug is a small, approachable size, with an attached (faux fur) bunny tail for some added flair in the bedroom. I found the size to be perfect for casual play and not the kind of thing you need to prep extensively to use.
The Magic Wand Mini tends to fluctuate in price frequently. It’s been this price since early December, but it does bounce back up to its MSRP now and then. This is our top pick in our Best Vibrators guide, and for good reason. I love its remarkable multi-session battery life (around 2.5 to 3 hours, depending on vibration intensity) and smaller form factor when compared to the classic (and gigantic) Magic Wand.
The Rose-shaped suction toy is a popular category lately, and this is one of our favorites. The One Rose is coated in soft silicone, and the buttons are clear and easy to use. The broad soft mouth makes it easy to stimulate a wide variety of erogenous zones, but it excels at clitoral stimulation.
