Whether you’re coupled or single, sometimes it’s nice to treat yourself to a few…things. Fun things. Strange things. Queer things (and we do mean queer as in bizarre). Things that make you smile. Sure, you could also buy these for your girlfriend, your wife, or your BFF, but there’s nothing wrong with a bit of self-indulgence. So with that spirit in mind, here are six of our favorite quirky finds for showing yourself a bit of self-love on Valentine’s Day this year. Or any day, for that matter.
This Boob Tote by Otherwild, a lesbian-owned brand that sells an array of feminist and lesbian/gay themed pieces, including jewelry, apparel, and unique accessories. Their collaboration with Herstory offers a lesbian culture sweatshirt, gay power tees, and these fabulous Dyke Pins.
What we have here is a Boomer and George Carter Mid-Century Modern Cat Litter Box. Because you and your cat (s) have style, and because, well, it doesn’t get much queerer than this.
Oh damn wait, we were wrong. It does get queerer. A time will come in your life that you may unexpectedly need a unicorn finger puppet. I mean, what girl doesn’t? Girl, meet the handicorn! Now you can have your very own for one payment of 6.99.
If you’re in the market for some classic pin-up art, look no further than this vintage German postcard featuring a lesbian Edwardian stage couple. And there are others. Find them on the LGBTimes Etsy shop.
This unicorn wine bottle holder. It is fabulously queer and essential at the same time, and if the spirit moves you, you can always add rainbow glitter. Apparently, it’s quite popular on the internet, and Ebay is but one source for finding this conversation starter – or non-starter, whatever the case may be.
A soft, warm mermaid tail blanket is the gift that keeps on giving. Your legs will be so cozy you may never leave your sofa again. Please snuggle up with this in the privacy of your own living room, and preferably while single. Otherwise you also may never have sex again. Just saying. But by all means buy this mermaid tail blanket. Yes, it comes in other colors. but pink is just….sooo gay.
