Do you have a special occasion rapidly approaching? Maybe an anniversary or birthday that you just completely forgot about? Here's a tip: no one wants an overpriced stuffed animal from the drugstore or a generic gift card to a department store - they want something that shows you really understand them and want to satisfy their desires. Sure, you could peek at their browser history or ask their friends what they're into, but let's be honest - you want a gift that you'll get to enjoy too: sex toys. (Sorry guys, that backyard grill is gonna have to wait!) Sex toy gifts are fun for both the giver and recipient, and they promote great communication and intimacy as well. Here are some tips to get you started:
Remember it's THEIR Gift
While it may be tempting to pick up a butt plug to convince a partner to try anal sex with you, or springing a 'romantic erotic massage' DVD on your partner to coax them into giving more, buy a sex toy with their needs in mind, not yours. If a sex toy gift is blatantly weighted in favor of your bedroom interests, it will come across as selfish and you may find a chilly reception between the sheets later on.
Star or Supporting Role
Sex toys come in all shapes and sizes, which makes them easy to 'add on' to an existing gift or become the star of a gift bag all on their own. Adding, for example, a bottle of sensual massage oil to a pack of luxurious sheets and a scented candle indicates a pleasant night of romance to come. Alternately, a high end luxury vibrator or quality male masturbator is an excellent lone gift to present to your partner in private.
Add-Ons for First Timers
If your sex toy gift is destined for a user that doesn't have a collection yet, a few thoughtful touches will help them get the most out of it. Adding a small bottle of lubricant and some toy cleaner to your gift ensures that all of your recipients new sex toys will feel great and stay clean between uses. Even a sexy DVD can help set the mood and get them in the right frame of mind to start exploring your present!
Whether you're shopping for vibrating cock rings, petite vibrators or adult toys for couples for that special celebration, you won't need that backyard grill to turn up the heat - just a few batteries!
