Thanks for all the beautiful comments about your Valentine’s Days and ideal gifts and wonderful things you’ve received in the mail.

Jodi, commenter #33, is the official winner of the Come Together Gift Basket! Congrats Jodi, hope you enjoy it!

Valentine’s Day – or Single Awareness Day – is coming up, and I think we’re going to do something special over on Queer Eye Candy, still trying to figure out exactly what.

I especially liked the comment that ephraim left:

on a commune where they initiated a tradition of “Validation Day” on Feb. 14th to be a community-wide celebration of all the different kinds of relationships people have instead of just the romantic ones. Preparations begin sometime in mid January; people sign up to make each others cards (usually elaborate and 3 dimensional affairs with lots of collaging); the cards go into a box alphabetically; and people spend the week or so leading up to V-Day gathered around the box thoughtfully signing them and usually feeling much happier about their fellow communards – an important thing in the midst of winter doldrums and restlessness when everyone is all cramped up inside. After V-Day dinner, there’s a playful round of trying to guess whose card is whose based on randomly selected comments and then they’re distributed (after which a rockin’ dance party commences).

That sounds SO fun and lovely, and what a great way to validate *all* relationships and not just the romantic ones. Maybe you might feel inspired to send Valentine’s Day cards to your mother or best friends or the mentors whom you adore, this year, instead of just your romantic interest.

Valentine’s Day is coming up quick. I know, I know, we only just finished the winter holidays, but it’s true, it’ll be here way before I’m prepared for it, I’m sure.

It’s a stressful one … don’t get me wrong, I’m a romantic, I love making wonderful little gift things that are sweet and romantic and red & pink for this (cheesy) holiday. And then there’s the whole S.A.D. thing – Single’s Awareness Day – where we shouldn’t discriminate against those who aren’t partnered! Right? Right. Oh it’s a challenging holiday.

So hey, let’s do a little give-away, shall we?

Come Together Gift Baskets specializes in sexy, sensual gift baskets made for lesbians by lesbians. These are perfect for saying, “Thank you,” “I love you,” “I want to see you again,” “Happy Anniversary,” or “I’d really like to tie you to the bedpost and have my way with you.” The majority of our products come from woman-owned companies who do not participate in animal testing.

(I’m pretty fond of the Rescue Me basket, myself.)

The fabulous queers behind this site have offered up the controversial (their word, not mine) I Kissed a Girl gift basket, which includes:

Soy Massage Candle
Massage Oil
Lip Butter
Lips Pillow
Silver Bullet Vibrator

Perfect for Valentine’s Day! Give it to your sweetie, or keep it as a lovely gift to yourself!
