The Best Gifts To Give Women On Valentine's Day


"It's always Galentine's Day when you're a literal lesbian"—Gabrielle Korn

While we're not ones to bash Valentine's Day, we don't love how it's limited to romantic love. Why not celebrate romantic and platonic love? And why not just celebrate women, both romantically and platonically? Galentine's Day shouldn't just be limited to BFFS, even if it should include them. So, with this in mind, we present the gifts to have the best Galentine's Day ever, with picks ranging from sweet treats and face masks for the ladies in your life, no matter who they are.

Get your astrology sisters—and yourself!—a zodiac stud from our favorite ethical jewelry brand.

Houseplant lovers (aka millennials) and those looking for a sustainable alternative to cutting flowers will love this online plant shop that delivers ready-to-go potted indoor plants, provides customers with care instructions, and offers support through its Plant Mom program where you can chat the founder's actual mom with photos of the problem with the plant and she will offer advice on how to revive it.

Bloomscape, Stromanthe Triostar, $150, available at bloomscape.

If you or your friends do like freshly cut flowers though, as well as Queer Eye (which, like, who doesn't?), interior design guru Bobby Berk has partnered with The Bouqs Co. on a collection of bouquets with flowers sourced from sustainable farms.

Saucey, Self-Love Bundle, $99, available ay Saucey.

Speaking of vibrators... if you're in the business of buying your first one, read this. Then, get this cute number that can double as decor (sure, why not?) and will provide hours of fun.

Evine, Rianne S Heart Vibe, $38.50, available at Evine.

And then there's butt stuff. By featuring butts of various sizes and shapes, B-Vibe's new campaign, Every Body Has a Butt, attempts to destigmatize and highlight the inclusive nature of anal play, so that everyone can experience more pleasure.

Sure a bouquet of roses is lovely but how about a hair mist that will leave its wearer smelling like roses?

No night with the girls is complete without wine fueling it. This Sonoma County pinot noir is perfect when paired with a cheese plate and exudes aromas of berries and plums, making it an all-around pleaser no matter the crowd.

As a big proponent of Shhhowercap shower caps, I consider this the greatest gift I can give.

Skin Gym, Blue Soladite facial roller, $32, available at Chillhouse.

If you want to take it a step further from going to a spa/beauty salon, consider a staycation. Start the day with a workout or a pampering session, get brunch, and then spend the rest of the day lounging in a hotel bed, getting room service, and streaming reality TV. (And, hey, if it's a romantic staycation, maybe try out that new vibrator?)

NYC's 11 Howard is offering a complimentary HigherDOSE infrared sauna (our favorite!) session—that helps detox the body, promote better sleep, and get glowing skin (also our favorites!)—Prosecco and chocolate upon arrival, and breakfast in bed, until February 18.

Premiering today via NYLON

Small Talks, aka Cayley Spivey, has come a long way since starting a band, then becoming the entire band herself and forging her own fan base from the ground up. On her recent album A Conversation Between Us, she began to unpack any lingering baggage with one particular song: "Teeth." Today, she premieres the accompanying music video exclusively via NYLON.

"'Teeth' is about my personal battle with letting go of the past," Spivey tells NYLON, admitting that it's easily her favorite song off of A Conversation Between Us.

Watch the video for "Teeth" below.

Must have been pretty awkward

Taylor Swift and Sophie Turner were guests on the U.K.'s The Graham Norton Show together, which must have been awkward for Turner's husband, Joe Jonas, seeing as he also happens to be Swift's ex. I wonder if his name came up?

The interview doesn't come out until Friday night, but promotional photos show the two sharing a couch. Swift is making an appearance to perform her new single, "ME!" while Turner is promoting her new film, X- Men: Dark Phoenix. But it seems necessary for the two to be asked about Jonas.

Swift was just on the Ellen DeGeneres Show earlier this month, where she brought up the fact that she felt bad for putting Jonas "on blast" on DeGeneres' show back in 2008 by telling the audience that he broke up with her in a record-setting short phone call. But, according to Swift, she and Jonas are chill now, since it happened pretty long ago, which means she's probably already hung out with Turner and maybe even gossiped about him with her.

We can only hope that they get the chance to spill some tea on television.

"That's! His! Auntie!"

Leslie Jones has rewatched the Game of Thrones finale with a beer in hand, Seth Meyers at her side, and a full camera crew ready to take in all her glorious reactions. Spoilers ahead, but, if you haven't watched last week's episode already, that's kind of on you at this point.

When Jon Snow started to make out with Daenerys, also known as his aunt, only to stab her through the chest moments later, it was emotional whiplash for everyone watching. And, Jones' reactions—both from her first and second viewing—sum it all perfectly.

"That's! His! Auntie! [gagging noises]," Jones says before making an aside about calling the police if her uncle ever tried to do the same. But then the knife goes in, and Jones screams. "Did you see that?!" Jones asks, "Yeah bitch, that's a knife in you." Meyers points out the funniest part of all: "Why are you so upset about someone kissing their aunt but totally fine with someone killing their aunt?" Jones replies, "Because that bitch needed to go," and, well, same.

Other highlights from the comedians' rewatch include comparing Dany's victory speech to a bad improv gig, predicting that their dogs would have less of a reaction to their deaths than Drogon did to his mother's, and more.

Watch all of Jones' reactions from this Late Night clip below.

These lyrics are a lot

Robbie Tripp, aka Curvy Wife Guy, is back with a music video, titled "Chubby Sexy," starring his wife and a trio of models. In it, Tripp raps about his bold choice to find women with an average body size attractive.

The video begins with a series of statements laid over some pool water: "Curves are the new high fashion," "Chubby is the new sexy," "We Out Here." Tripp posits that these queens deserve an anthem, which they do. What they do not deserve is this Cursed Song. As he lists all the names he knows to call them by (thick, thicc, and BBW), one model (who I really, really hope was paid well) squirts some lotion down her cleavage, and Tripp begins dancing.

"My girl chubby sexy/ Call her bonita gordita," Tripp states in his chorus, before going on to compare "big booty meat" to the peach emoji. Another thing he mentions is that his wife can't find a belt that fits her waist, and that's why he calls her James and the Giant Peach. He then tries to dab. Here are some of the other Cursed highlights from his, uh, verses:

Got those Khaleesi curves/ Knows how to dragon slay
She like a dude that's woke/ We like a girl that's weighty
Some say a chubby girl that's risky/ But they ain't met a curvy girl that's frisky
Imma dunk that donk like I'm Andrew Wiggins.
Thick like an Amazon/ Built like Big Ben.

Tripp says one thing in the video that I couldn't agree more with: "She don't need a man." No, she does not. Please run. If you must, watch the entire video, below. Or send it to your nemesis!

See the promo here

It was bound to happen. The Kadashians and Jenners have committed themselves to letting the cameras roll on their lives, for better or for worse. So if you thought that the Jordyn Woods and Tristan Thompson cheating scandal was off limits, you thought wrong. The trailer for Sunday's episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians was just released, and it involves the famous family working through the fallout of what happened when Woods went to a party at Thompson's house.

The teaser includes the infamous clip of Khloé Kardashian screaming "LIAAAARRRRRR." It's still not explicitly clear who prompted that strong response. She could be responding to Thompson, who clearly isn't always honest. Or she could be reacting to Woods account of the events on Red Table Talk. But the most revealing moment comes when we see Kylie Jenner—who was Woods' best friend before all of this happened—react for the first time.

In a heart-to-heart conversation, momager Kris Jenner says, "For you and Jordyn, it's like a divorce." Kylie only offers this in response: "She fucked up." Based on Woods' version of events—which I'm inclined to believeThompson is the one who fucked up. Still, I'm hoping for some kind of reconciliation between the two longtime friends. Perhaps we'll have to wait until next season for that.

Check out the promo video below.
