Ho ho ho! Here comes Santa Claus again, with toys in his sack for all the good boys and girls… and maybe he’s also got some stashed away in there for the naughty boys and girls, as well. Yup, we’re talking about the adult toys you and your partner really want for Christmas! But if you’re curious about giving some new sex toys a whirl, but not sure what’s right for you, we’ve got a guide that’ll get you started doing some gifting to the naughtiest on your list – or to yourself! After all, pleasure is all about giving AND receiving! So without any more teasing, let’s get down to business.
Your Sexiest Holiday Gift List
With the long winter stretching out ahead of us, we all could use something to heat things up, right? And remember, you don’t HAVE TO give these beauties away – you are so worth a steamy present of self love! Remember, masturbation is good for you! For example, if you’re a woman, it doesn’t just get you off, it also helps boost your immune system, strengthen your pelvic muscles, and promote body positivity. So whatever your gender, and whether you’re partnered or not, what might blow your stockings off in the coming year?
A real crowd pleaser
Looking for a vibrator for yourself or your gal? May we suggest th
e Satisfyer Pro 2 Next Generation? Available from Adam and Eve, this vibrator has been bought by over half a million satisfied customers, and raved about in Cosmopolitan. It has it all: it’s waterproof, it offers optional puffs of air to simulate the sensations of oral sex, has 11 fun settings, and is even rechargeable, so the fun never has to end with a hunt for fresh batteries! Anyone would love to get this in their stocking!
Looking to class things up?
While sex toys have gotten a lot sleeker and more pleasing to the eye these days, you probably wouldn’t want to wear them out of the house, right? Well, the Crave Vesper Vibrator Necklace changes all that! This statement necklace, which comes in rose gold, gold, and silver, is also a mini vibrator, so you can look good at dinner with your squeeze, and then have some extra fun for dessert.
Cheeky fun for everyone
Kind of into the idea of letting your partner take control? Try the LOVENSE Lush 3 Bullet Vibrator, a toy that your partner can control remotely. Yup, you read that right: you’ll finally WANT to give your partner the remote control!
Lots of bang for your buck
On the twelfth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me…some mind-blowing sexy time! Looking for something more holiday-themed, that’ll keep you trying new things all season long? Try the Lovehoney Sweet Seduction 12-Day Couple’s Advent Calendar, and see what you can get into, other than Christmas cookies, as you experiment with 12 new and different toys for your 12 sexy days of Christmas. Truly, a lot of bang for your buck.
A little boost
Want just a little something extra in the bedroom (or under the tree)? Try the Dame Eva II, a toy that stays in place (thanks to its little wings that tuck under you or your partner’s labia) as you have intercourse. It’s quiet, but mighty.
Celebrate cuffing season
Want to actually cuff your honey? It might be fun to experiment with a little bit of restraint, but only if everyone is totally on board and comfortable with it, of course. If you are feeling a little naughty, take a look at the Bijoux Indiscrets MAZE Wide Handcuffs, which can be comfier thanks to the wide cuffs. Plus, they just look good.
Roll the dice
OK, so getting your partner in bed might be a sure thing, and not much of a gamble, but that doesn’t mean you can’t up the ante. Try Dalliance’s Sex Dice, a grown-up way to bring some more fun and games into your bedroom. With 12-sided, six-sided, and 10-sided options, there are different positions, directions, and locations to explore – all left up to chance.
Use the backdoor
Curious about anal play? You can start by giving anal beads a try, like Lovers Anal Pop Booty Beads. According to Marla Renee Stewart, MA, sexpert for adult wellness brand and retailer Lovers, “If you’re a beginner wanting to rev up anal play, but want to do something different, this is your chance. Place these beads in your anus for some titillating foreplay, and if you’re partnered, have your lover give you oral sex. Right when you’re about to orgasm, tug on the beads and pull them out for an incredible elongated varied orgasm.”
You might also want to try a prostate massager to get things explosive, like the Lelo Billy 2.
Go full techie
The We-Vibe Moxie takes the remote control sex toy to a whole new level. You can control it via app, and even includes a video chat feature to really spice things up for visual lovers who can’t be home for the holidays.
Something for the sensual
You don’t have to fill your lover’s stocking with toys alone. Try something to go with those massagers, like a massage candle. The Earthly Body Soy Candle High Tide, for example, is a body-safe soy candle that you light to get an atmosphere going, then pour on your partner for a sensual massage once it’s all warm and melted – as your partner will be!
All thrills and no frills
If you want to try a rabbit vibrator, check out the Better Love Rabbit Lily Vibrator, a toy with vibrating ears for teasing both sweet spots. You can use it solo or with a partner, bringing more intensity to your bedroom sexcapades. Bonus: it’s a great deal!
The ring of fire
If you haven’t brought penis rings into your sex life, now is the time! Even the simplest can aid in harder, longer-lasting erections, but you don’t have to go simple! There are some pretty exciting ones on the market, like the Lovehoney Bionic Bullet 5 Function Vibrating Rabbit Cock Ring, which stretches to fit most sizes and has five vibrating levels to enhance sex for both partners. If you’re looking for something a little simpler, and less imposing, but still lovely and vibrate-y, check out the Halo by Bellesa.
The real thing
For those who appreciate realism in their sex toys, look beyond all those crazy dildos and check out the King Cock Extra Girthy Ultra Realistic Suction Cup Dildo. Even better than the real thing?
And don’t forget…
To keep things running smoothly, don’t forget the lubricant! And since it’s a special time of year, treat yourself to a fancy schmancy lube experience with one from Isabel Fay – they’re water-based and all-natural, and pair well with solo or partner play.
As we said at the beginning, the holiday season and pleasure have one big thing in common – both are all about giving AND receiving. And we’ll also say again, that there should be a healthy dose of niceness and naughtiness involved! So make your list and check it twice (using our handy guide), grab your favorite elf, and deck those halls – and let us know what’s on YOUR list this year!
