With the holiday season upon us, stress levels are sure to skyrocket as we tackle shopping for our loved ones. Well, before you panic and grab a bunch of gift cards last minute at your local drugstore on Christmas Eve, take a moment to breathe, and read on for some truly outside-of-the-box gift ideas that show a more…personal touch.
Buying a sexy gift for your other half should probably be one of the easiest items on your shopping list to knock out, right? But when it comes right down to it, a great deal of the time you wind up drawing a blank. What do you get that special someone without going overboard? Because it does matter. You wouldn’t buy a guy or girl you’ve only just begun dating something super expensive and over-the-top—like jewelry, which indicates a level of commitment that might not have been reached at this point in your relationship. And buying a woman lingerie is more a gift for yourself, because you’re picking out something that you want to see her in. (Not to mention sizing: not every lingerie manufacturer sizes their products the same, and you risk buying your other half something that either doesn’t fit, or something that winds up offending her.)
So what do you do? In today’s more sex-positive society, think about gifts that will enhance your bedroom activities.
There are tons of options for every couple out there, and for every budget:
- Massage Oils
- Flavored lubricants
- Stimulating Gels for Him and Her
- Pheromone Perfume and Colognes
- Couples’ Vibrating C-Rings
- Toys for Both
If you are so lucky as to have a brick-and-mortar adult store nearby, it is highly recommended that you visit in person. Good shops have staff who know their merchandise, are friendly, and best of all, are patient and willing to help. If not, and have to shop online, don’t just jump onto Amazon and click on the first item that fits your requirements. Not all items shown on Amazon (or eBay, for that matter) are the real deal. Instead, search for the actual manufacturer’s website, and shop their catalogs. Reputable companies abound, and you can be sure that they use quality materials, and you will receive exactly what you ordered, instead of a shoddy knockoff. Impulse Novelties has three gorgeous lines that fit every budget, and not only are their toys made of high-quality materials, they have something for everyone. From the affordable Nina Petite toys (The Nina Petite Pink Curvy G and The Nina Petite Purple Bunny) to the sleek and sexy No. 19 Rechargeable P-Spot Vibe Set for him, to the popular and fun The NEW Jimmee Purple Lightning Rod as seen on Bravo TV’s Girlfriend’s Guide to Divorce.
There are so many options out there to make the holidays fun and sexy, and relatively stress free. After all, you still have to deal with all those holiday get-togethers and parties—shopping should be the last thing you should have to worry over!
