‘Tis sexy season!
The mall is decked out, and your mailbox is stuffed with red and green catalogs featuring snowmen. It’s time for baking, office parties, family gatherings, shopping, and, just when you think you’re done, more shopping… whoa, that’s a lot piled on top of everything else you normally do. Where does your relationship fit into the picture?
Finding time and ways to connect during the holidays can fall off the radar, especially if family or other drama turns the most wonderful time of the year into the most stressful. Prioritizing your sex life is one of the best gifts you can give each other, though. Doesn’t a big O (or a whole bunch of them) make everything better?
Think about it. Holiday gatherings are a lot more festive when you glance over at your partner, secretly knowing why you were late. Or, when you get the signal there will be an unforgettable after-party.
So, forget the sweaters and trendy gadgets. Keep the holidays playful, fun, and intimate with these gift ideas that will make your partner squeal with delight. Literally.
Luxury lingerie: naughty or nice? Yes! And, so hot!
Yeah, we’ve heard that people wonder whether lingerie is a good gift. After all, you don’t want your significant other to think you’re really buying a gift for yourself. Here’s our take. It’s okay if lingerie is for both of you. There’s nothing wrong with taking advantage of the holidays to spice up your sex life. Think of it as a gift for your relationship that keeps on giving.
Plus, it’s impossible not to feel like a rock star in Fleur Du Mal’s exquisite designs. Silk, lace, beads, sequins, oh my! We love their elegant takes on racy bras, panties, and garters.
Picking a favorite was tough, but after much oohing and ahhing, we kept going back to the Private Party Bundle featuring… wait for it… the company’s best-selling black stretch lace Charlotte crotchless panties. Not only are they beyond sexy, but they also come with a bottle of all-natural Mood Maker pleasure-enhancing oil to help you play out your wildest fantasies.
A New Experience
Not sure what to give the person who seems to have everything and or doesn’t want anything? How about giving your partner a memorable experience?
Vacations are always nice but aren’t always budget-friendly. Remember, when it comes to experiences, it’s not about how much you spend. Even a coupon for a special night at home can be a game-changer.
Start with an invitation to a private party. The attire? Just a blindfold. Blindfolds can heighten your senses and max out sensations. Combined with Playground’s Mood Maker, it adds a whole new level of intimacy.
What would the holidays be without toys?
Sex toys say, “Hey, let’s explore and experiment.” You get to try out new sensations, positions, and activities. Your imaginations are the limit. Not only that, sex toys can improve your pleasure and lead to higher satisfaction between the sheets. Now that’s a gift!
If you’re looking for creative ways to seduce your spouse or partner, check out Lelo’s Couple Play Bundle. The Tiani™ 3 Remote-Controlled Couples Massager vibrates both inside and outside to max out your pleasure. The package includes the Tor™ 2 Couples Ring with six stimulation modes designed to work with any position, shape, or size. You’ll also love the super thin Elo Hex™ condoms with their perfect fit and the handy water-based personal moisturizer that completes the set.
An Interactive Calendar
Why settle for one or two nights of romance?
Check out the A Month of Sex Calendar that helps you celebrate all month long. Peek behind the doors and get ideas to shake things up under the sheets. One day you may be challenged to a naked pillow fight (loser grants winner three sexual wishes!). Another day, you may be dressing up as a superhero and making your sexual fantasies come true.
The best part is that once you finish the calendar, you can start it all over again!
Need some new foreplay ideas? Lovehoney Oh! Foreplay Dice is the perfect stocking stuffer.
Whether you want a little tease or to get all out naughty, these dice will get the ball rolling. They’re gender inclusive and hit all of your erogenous hot spots. Not lovin’ certain moves or parts? Simply come up with a substitute.
Perfect for vacays since the dice are small and packable.
Does your partner have a competitive streak?
Check out Strip Bedroom Blackjack Sex Card Game, a deck of cards that’s a takeoff on strip poker. You can also use the cards to put an erotic twist on Go Fish or Gin Rummy. Want to take it a step further? Dress (and then undress!) the part. Vegas stripper, naughty dealer, let your imagination run wild!
Books not only make thoughtful gifts, but their words, and messages last long after the holiday decorations are cleaned up and stored away.
We’re partial to Smart Sex: How to Boost Your Sex IQ and Own Your Pleasure, but not just because our Chief Sexologist, Dr. Emily Morse, wrote it. We love how it sets the stage for sexual communication and paves the way for those intimate conversations that can be difficult to bring up. No need to feel awkward. That’s the key to any relationship. Emotional barriers, orgasms, open relationships… no topic is taboo.
Trust us when we say that this book will change the way you and your partner think about sex and pleasure.
You may even want to read it together!
Subscription to an Erotic App
Is your partner too busy or too tired to read? Check out Quinn Audio Erotica.
Quinn was designed by women to be a safe space for sexual thoughts, feelings, and expression. It allows women to use their senses to get turned on without visuals that may turn them off.
The app and website let users browse creators, categories, and playlists. Within the categories, you’ll find features such as erotic audio stories, guided masturbation, and naughty talk with plots that are sure to pique your interest.
We really like how Quinn lets you go solo or listen together. Either way, you can have fun exploring.
And, that’s a wrap on our top sexy holiday gift ideas. Whether your significant other is into toys, games, or books, there’s something for everyone on the list. Wishing you a season full of happiness, joy, passion, and great sex.
