Is giving a sex toy as a gift a good idea?

Giving the gift of sex toys can be intimidating. You might be worried that your receiver might not like the sex toy or might be embarassed by the gift. These are possibilities, but it’s also very likely they will be excited about it. Some people are shy to buy sex toys for themselves or maybe you know they have a specific toy on their wishlist. You’ll have to gauge whether or not a sex toy is appropriate in the context of your relationship to the receiver.

If you’re really unsure, you can also just ask! Here are some ways to still keep your gift a surprise:

  • Hey, I know we’ve talked about how fun sex toys are - I’m thinking about gifting you one, would that be weird or welcomed?
  • I was shopping online for sex toys and I thought of you, would you like to make a wishlist and I can surprise you with a sex toy from your list!
  • Can we try something different this year for our gifts? How would you feel about us gifting each other sex toys?

I'm an affiliate partner with Lovehoney and they are having a hot sale right now with SWEET deals on some of my favourite sex toys, so I've put in links for you for these three amazing vibrators.

Rose Clitoral Stimulator

I'm a big fan of clitoral stimulators - and besides being cute, the Rose has been a big hit because of it's touchless sensations.

Magic Wand Vibrator

The Magic Wand is a classic for a reason. It's powerful vibrations help rumble sensation deep into the body. It's an external sex toy - so try it on nipples, perineums, vulvas, clits, penises and against buttholes. I mean, I guess you can also use it to massage your neck!

We-Vibe X Lovehoney Nova 2

This is one of the toys I recommend frequently - it's another all bodies toy: you can use in on penises to spice up handjobs or for dual stimulation of external clitoral pleasure + internal G-spot stimulation. I also like it for getting into crevices like behind testicles for external prostate pleasure and against the anus to warm up for penetration. The flexible arm is the best part - all of our anatomy isn't the same, so this allows you to position the external vibration wherever it feels best for your body. It's also app-controlled so you can get into some fun hands-free and partner play!

Treat Yourself!

Don't forget to treat yourself! Sex toys for solo pleasure can mix up your masturbation, help you discover new pleasure like orgasms or deeper sensations, and can be a great way to find new hot spots.
