Ok, yes, Valentine’s Day isn’t for a couple of weeks. But remember, shipping times are a bit unreliable at the moment and if you want to get anything for yourself or a significant other, you should probably be placing that order soon.
Luckily, most of our favorite sex tech retailers have already started their Valentine’s Day sales, so you’ll not only have tons of toys and tech to choose from but there are some great deals out there. We searched through a veritable forest of V-Day deals and found the absolute best on sex tech, toys, lubes, and gift sets—many of which we’ve featured on our Best Sex Tech for Every Body roundup.

Lelo’s Lily 2 vibrator is designed to stimulate the clitoris, but in our experience it works on a variety of genitals and erogenous zones. Perfectly sized to fit in your palm, with easy to reach (and see) buttons, it’s a great pick for anyone looking for something that’s just as fun to use with a partner as it is solo.
We’ve said it once and we’ll say it again: MysteryVibe’s Crescendo is one of our all-time favorite vibrators. It’s flexible, so you can bend it into a variety of positions (the manual includes some helpful examples), and it has six internal motors, all of which can be activated independently via the included customization app. The built-in intensity modes and patterns are awesome, but once you get to customizing individual motors you can really start to see why this toy is an absolute joy for anyone to use, no matter your genitals.
MysteryVibe’s Poco is like a smaller version of the Crescendo. It’s a take on the classic bullet vibe, but a bit bigger. Still small enough to fit in your hand comfortably and be stored discreetly, but longer so it can be bent and folded like its larger sibling, the Crescendo. The flexibility is a nice touch and makes it a great toy for phalluses or vulvas.
The We-Vibe Sync is a partner vibrator designed for internal and external use. It’s U-shaped, and designed so the external portion rests against the clitoris, while the internal portion presses against the G-spot. For partner play, it’s a fun pick, providing vibrations to both partners during penetrative sex (whether that’s with a toy, a phallus, or fingers).
Another take on the classic bullet vibe, We-Vibe’s Touch is an itty bitty vibrator with a silicone body and a comfy ergonomic shape. The shape is the real star here, you can hold it in a variety of different ways for solo or partner play, and its shape lends itself well to use with a phallus, clitoris, or other erogenous zone.
Plug & Prostate Stimulator Deals
The Hugo is one of our top picks for anal play and prostate stimulation. It fits snugly against the prostate, provides deep, rumbly vibes, and best of all it’s remote-controlled. Remote control toys are a lot of fun to use with partners, and this remote control is actually motion-sensitive so instead of pushing buttons to control the toy all you have to do is tilt it until you find just the right angle.
Billy is essentially the Hugo plug but without the remote control. So it’s still a great toy for anal play, perfectly sized to rest against most peoples’ prostates. It’s a little big if you’re out of practice so definitely warm up before jumping into the deep end with Billy or Hugo.
This vibrating plug has a trick up its sleeve: it generates heat. A comfy and safe amount of heat, but it’s a fun addition to an otherwise great vibrating anal plug. It’s angled to rest against most peoples’ prostates, and it’s pretty small so it’s beginner-friendly. The vibration is a bit weaker than it is on other plugs on this list, but it feels pretty great and the addition of a heating element is a fun sensation to experiment with.
Suction Toy & Stroker Deals
Lora DiCarlo Baci
Lelo’s Sona is one of the original suction stimulators. It uses air pulses to simulate the gentle suction of oral sex, and even though it’s been on the market a long time it’s still just as good as the new kids on the block. If you or a partner have a clitoris and you’ve never tried one, this toy is a great pick.
Sila is another suction toy, but it’s in a slightly different form factor. Narrow and snail-like, Sila is easy to grip, and rests nicely against the clitoris. It has a bigger mouth than Sila, with a bigger silicone cup around the mouth, and that can give you a more diffuse stimulation experience. Great for people who find direct clitoral stimulation a little intense, or people who like to engage more of the vulva during sex.
The Baci suction toy from Lora DiCarlo is one of the best in its class. We’ve tested dozens of suction/air pulse toys, and the Baci is kind of the gold standard. It can be a little intense, even on its lowest intensity setting, but the suction it provides is amazing for anyone with a clitoris.
Tenga’s strokers are our favorites, hands-down. This ultra-squishy toy for phalluses has some internal structure to add another layer of stimulation, but its best feature is its extremely life-like soft-touch silicone. Paired with a good water-based lube, Tenga’s Spinner is an absolute joy to use solo or with a partner.
Bundles & Accessory Deals
This gift set includes one of our all-time favorite vibrators, the Dame Pom, along with an arousal serum and a bottle of water-based lube. The arousal serum gives you sort of tingly sensations, which can be a fun way to spice things up, and the lube is just great to have on hand. When they’re all paired with the Pom though, well, you or you and your partner are in for an exciting Valentine’s Day.
Maude makes great sex toys and even better lubes and accessories. This bundle of Maude products includes a big bottle of our all-time favorite lube, some cleaning wipes, and a vibrator. Maude’s Vibe is a super soft, approachable vibrator for external or semi-internal use (it’s not tapered enough for anal use though, so definitely don’t use it there), and it provides rich rumbly vibrations. It’s a great way to start any sex toy collection, and it makes a great gift. Maude’s Essentials Bundle is the same price but swaps the wipes out for condoms.
Even though this is a pretty small discount, it’s still worth it and here’s why: You should have lube. If you are a sex-having adult, you should have and use lube, with a partner or solo! Lube is an easy way to elevate any sexual experience. In that way, it’s kind of like toothpaste: it’s a staple. You should have it on hand. Even a small discount off of toothpaste is a good deal, and I’d argue that’s the same for lube. Plus, Lelo’s premium lube is silky smooth and long-lasting, and it doesn’t leave any sticky residue behind.
Speaking of lube, if you have and use sex toys on the reg, you should also invest in a specially formulated cleanser for those toys. Just give any toy a rinse, a spritz of this cleaner, and another rinse, and she’s good to go.
