12 Of The Gayest Valentine’s Day Gifts For Your Partner — From Lesbian Earrings To Crochet-Making Kits

Valentine's Day can very easily feel like a heterosexual hellscape, full of dysphoric gendered gifts and straight expectations — whether it's people thinking you're just a couple of besties or when you go out or the infamous "gifts for her and him" section on websites. But if there's one thing the queer community does is reclaim a space, and V-Day is no different. Still, it can be hard to find something that isn't drenched in straight culture, so here's where your resident non-binary lesbian shopping writer comes in with my 12 best Valentine's Day gay gifting ideas for your partner — for the she/they, they/them, he/they and everything in between. Gift them a brand-new genderless fragrance, some funky cowboy earrings, a super-cute crochet stuffed animal-making kit for the two of you to do, and voila you're set!
