Embrace intimacy with Babeland
30+ years ago, Rachel and Claire founded Babeland out of frustration with the absence of female-operated and LGQTB+ friendly adult stores in Seattle. Since then the brand has consistently broadened its horizons, presenting an extensive array of products dedicated to sexual well-being. From BDSM paraphernalia and fetish accoutrements to lubricants, and lingerie, Babeland offers a diverse range of choices for intimate enjoyment.

Adorn them with Chouette Designs
Chouette Designs has earned our unwavering admiration for more than one compelling reason! Not only is Chouette Designs a cherished member of The Fat Girls Traveling Community, but they excel in creating exquisite, size-inclusive jewellery specifically tailored for our community. Each piece is a labour of love, featuring responsibly sourced diamonds and vibrant gemstones that reflect a commitment to meticulous craftsmanship. Proudly owned by women and members of the LGBT community, Chouette Designs draws inspiration from the vibrant city of San Diego, CA.
For the book lover
It’s no secret that book bans are dominating the nation’s culture wars, and LGBTQ+ books are some of the most challenged. As some states work to ban book bans themselves, why not gift your loved one a book from a Room of One’s Own? It’s a queer and trans-owned and operated indie bookstore that serves the Madison community. Plus, if you are local they host some amazing events!
This Valentine’s Day, let your gifts resonate with love, inclusion, and meaningful connections.
