2019 Holiday Gift Guide

The holiday season is well upon us. Christmas music plays everywhere, decorations have been hung, and the stress of what gifts to get everyone has fully set in. Perhaps you’re the type of person that already has all their shopping done and is kicking back to relax and read some sex related articles (I envy you for your organization), but perhaps you’re reading this because you might be considering giving someone on your list a sex toy.

Giving a sex toy as a gift can be a bit risky. It can be incredibly awkward and uncomfortable for someone to receive a sex toy as a gift if they weren't expecting it, so it’s always important to be sure the recipient will want and be comfortable with opening a present and discovering something sex-related inside. Sometimes, this means directly asking them “hey, how would you feel if I got you some sort of sex toy as a gift?”. If the answer sounds uncomfortable or unsure, definitely consider something else. People can be picky about their sex toys too (after all, it’s something rather personal), so if the answer to that question is “awesome!”, then you might want to talk about what sort of toy they might be interested in and what their preferences are. After all, a tiny pink butterfly-shaped vibrator is quite different than an assortment of leather kink implements. For more tips on gifting sex toys, give this post a read. Otherwise, here are some gift ideas for sexy friends in your life.

For the blossoming kinkster: Under The Bed Restraint System
If you and your partner have played around with a bit of kink and are looking for the next step, this little kit provides an entire restraint system that fits any size bed. The set includes both wrists and ankle cuffs that can be attached to the straps, one another, or anything else, giving folks the opportunity to get creative and experiment with some bondage.

For your fave strap-on top: a new harness
Choosing a harness for someone can be tricky, but if you know their style, this could be a functional and fun gift for both of you! Try sneakily asking for what they need in a strap-on. Maybe their current one doesn’t fit right or comes loose during sex. Then, find one that might remedy that issue. The Fit Strap-On Harness looks like a pair of briefs but has a hole in the front with a 1.5” stretchy O-ring. It’s machine washable and has a built-in vibrator pocket for their own pleasure too!

For the long-distance sweetie: The We-Vibe Sync. This app-compatible vibrator can be controlled with a smartphone from across the room or across the world. It has two vibrating motors to target both the G-spot and the clit and can be worn with penetrative sex when you've reunited once again.

For the G-Spot or prostate lover: The Njoy Pure Wand: The Pure Wand is a curved metal dildo famous for targeting the G-spot or prostate like no other. Each end has a different size rounded bulb so your partner can find what size works for them. This toy is perfect for providing firm intense pressure, and has even been known to cause squirting!

For the DIYer: a Clone-A-Willy or Clone-A-Pussy Kit. If your darling is into both sex toys and crafts, why not get them a gift that does both? With a Clone-A-Willy or Clone-A-Pussy kit, your darling can make their own fully functional silicone dildo or masturbation sleeve molded after your (or their own) genitals. What an idea for a date night!

For the blowjob enthusiast: The Fleshlight Quickshot Vantage
If your pal loves giving or receiving oral sex, the Quickshot could be great for adding just a little something extra. A shorter version of a masturbator, it provides extra stimulation around the base of the receiver’s penis while the open end leaves room for the giver to do what they do best. As a bonus, the clear holder and sleeve allow you both to see every bit of the action.

For those curious about butt stuff: The b-Vibe Anal Training & Education Set. If you and your dear have discussed forays into booty play, this kit might be a perfect place to start.  With three butt plugs of varying sizes (one of which vibrates), an in depth guide to anal play, and tools for proper cleanup and lubrication, y’all can ease into something new!

If you’re still unsure what to get, it might be worth it to let the person choose. Gift cards may be considered a cop-out, but it also ensures that the recipient will actually end up with something they will enjoy. Another option is to browse together and have them pick out a few things that interest them, then purchase one of those items. Gifting a sex toy can be a challenge, but with effective communicaiton, it doesn’t have to be.
