If you want to give a gift that stands out from the rest, buying something sex-related is honestly the way to go. Regardless of who you’re gifting to—whether it’s a partner or a friend—sexy prezzies are great because, hi, you’re literally giving them pleasure.
There are a few important things to keep in mind when buying a gift for a partner or pal, though. For one, you should know a lil something about their personal taste and what they enjoy. Have they expressed interest in BDSM? Are they eyeing a high-end wand? Do they groan about wanting better, different, or more sex after three glasses of wine? The last thing you want to do is buy a flogger for someone who considers spanking to be “kinky.”
Secondly, you’ll want to be very sure your friend or partner is cool with receiving sexy gifts. As soon as you know they’re on board, know that you can’t really go wrong—especially if they’re too shy or busy to do the shopping themselves.
So, if you’re looking to give a sex toy as a gift, here are a few of our favorite playthings to start with that’ll warrant a very heartfelt thank you note. Grab your credit card.
~For All Bodies~
1. For the person who wants to experience a little of everything
This kit may be marketed as a couples’ fun box for a 48-hour romp through sextoylandia, but the versatility of the toys included make it a really easy, safe, gift, regardless of your intended’s genitalia or relationship status. There are a ton of vibrators including a rabbit vibrator, a butt toy, and several different cock rings.
2. The gift that’s also a gift to yourself
The best gift of all is one that feels as good to give as it does to receive. That’s why we love this state-of-the-art couple’s ring that gives toe-curling sensations to everyone. The app makes it simple to use either in-person or for long-distance play, and the different vibration settings can be customized and saved so you’ll always get the perfect pleasure pattern.
3. For anyone who needs some all-over good vibes
This app-controlled, rechargeable wand features removable bunny ears for all-over stimulation. Yup, it feels great on your clitoris and nipples, but it’s also amazing for teasing, foreplay, and general massages. Use the wand over different erogenous zones to completely change up your usual routine.
4. For the person who doesn’t know what they want
With over 100,000 of these unique glass dildos sold and tons of rave reviews, it’s crystal clear this gorgeous piece is as pleasurable as it is pretty. The dildo features four different sensations, and you can even warm it up or cool it down for some simple temperature play. Whatever your pleasure preference (it’s great for internal and external vaginal and anal play) or relationship status (perfect for solos and couples), this toy has something for everyone.
5. For the person who loves trying new positions
If you want a sex swing but don’t want to install something in your ceiling (or don’t know how…), a sex sling is what your sex life has been missing. You literally just hook this contraption over any sturdy door for easy suspension. The padded, pivot seat makes it easy to find the perfect angle and the foot/hand straps give you extra support and leverage.
6. For the partner who’s really into role-playing
Whether they have a closet full of costumes or have just started expressing interest in bringing some new characters into the bedroom, these role-playing challenges will not only inspire you, but they’ll guide you as well. With pictures, directions, and even creative situations to try at home, this is a must for anyone who wants to spice up the vanilla.
7. For the person curious about butt stuff
Butt toys are often seen as one of the most versatile sex toys you can buy for a very good reason: Everyone has an anus. If the person you’re shopping for has expressed an interest in butt stuff but doesn’t really know where to start, this kit makes anal exploration as comfy, low-stakes, and educationally sexy as possible.
This kit includes a lube shooter, small beginner plug, medium vibrating plug, and weighted larger plug so they can have everything they need in one handy kit. There’s also a zippered travel pouch and anal education booklet to help get things started. If you wanna be really fancy, pair it with a special anal lube (who doesn’t love the opportunity to wrap two separate things for fun and extra gift-giving zuzh?).
8. For the person who wants a versatile sex toy they can use solo or with a partner
The purposefully gender-neutral Enby is perfectly designed to be pleasurable for all bodies. The splashproof vibrator has three speeds and five patterns and is super quiet according to reviewers. The versatile design is flexible so it can be used as a blowjob sleeve, external partner vibrator during penetration, or strap-on vibrator. You can also just use it as a clitoral vibrator, or even lay it down on a surface and hump it for a hands-free experience.
1. For the person in an LDR
It’s hard to go wrong with the classics when gift-giving, and rabbit toys are no exception. The Lovelife Fuse is USB rechargeable and can be controlled via LoveLife’s app, which means less fumbling for the person using it plus the option of having a partner control it from anywhere in the world. Perfect for anyone in a long-distance relationship or who never seems to put their phone down.
2. For the person who’s alllll about exploration
The future is now: Lelo combined their best-selling (and Cosmo editor approved) suction technology from their Sona toy with an internal vibrating component for an out-of-control orgasm. This toy is waterproof, rechargeable, and the futuristic chrome purple colorway makes it look like something out of a sexy sci-fi flick in like, a good way.
3. For the partner who’s a big fan of the taboo
We’ve been a fan of Clandestine Device’s other toy, the Mimic+, for a while now, which is why we were thrilled when they came out with the Companion. This versatile toy features a magnetic attachment so you can turn any pair of underwear into a vibrating pair. The vibe is waterproof, rechargeable, and contoured to fit all body types and sizes. Bonus: The remote is very discreet. So discrete, in fact, that you can swap out the watch band it comes with for any Apple Watch or similar smartwatch band. Wear it out and get ready for some seriously steamy situations.
4. For the person who appreciates luxury
For the bougie vulva-haver in your life, the Soraya Wave is not only peak luxury, but it’s also an amazing entry into the world of $$-but-worth-it sex toys. The Soraya Wave is sculpted with an easy-to-hold handle and features an internal shaft that moves up and down, stimulating a lover’s fingers. If your gift receiver already has and loves Lelo’s Ina Wave (with the same “wave” technology), the Soraya is the souped up, fancier version.
5. For the person who wants something discreet
Whether you’re buying for someone who wants to wear their sex toy on their neck or prefers the other end of the spectrum and just wants something that no one will be able to tell is a sex toy, the Crave Vesper is the OG of vibrator necklaces. Available in three colorways—gold, rose gold, and silver—and starting at $70, you can go for functionality or splurge for the priciest one and make it a bougie gift too. The rechargeable Vesper is pencil-thin (maybe even thinner than a pencil, honestly), and surprisingly strong given its small size.
6. For the person who appreciates a bargain
If you wanna gift something that leaves the door open for more sex toy buying in the future, the WeVibe Romp Free is a great starter. It’s $45, which is v. affordable given the fact that it’s got the same suction technology as much pricier vibes, small enough to stash anywhere, and includes a travel cover so your giftee can have peace of mind that it’s not getting dusty.
7. For the person who wants a pretty toy
This gorgeous, limited-edition, Le Wand features tons of adorable sketches by New York-based illustrator Jade Purple Brown, nail stickers, a keychain, a bolo tie, five postcards, and a travel case. Plus, the box is almost too pretty to wrap? The extras are so exciting, it’s almost easy to forget that the toy itself is also one of the most powerful wands, rechargeable, cordless, and has ten speeds and 20 patterns. Considering the regular, non-Jade Purple Brown edition Le Wands are also around the same price, the bonuses and cute design of this toy make it a STEAL.
8. For the person who looooves oral sex
Look, we get it: Sometimes your tongue may get tired, or your neck will experience some aches and pains when they’re getting close. Use this oral-sex simulator as your little sidekick to push them over the edge during oral. You won’t regret it.
9. For the person who needs some sexual stress relief ASAP
Don’t forget: An orgasm is always the preferred way to feel zen after a stressful week. But why not take it one step further and give them a thorough, much-needed back massage first? Letting them vent about their boss as you knead their shoulders is highly underrated foreplay.
10. For the person who never orgasms from penetrative stuff
They’re not alone. Lots of people need a lil help on their clitoris to reach their full-potential orgasm. Buy them one of these incredible clitoral vibrators that will do oh-so-many favors to their clitoris. Bonus points if you bust it out before they even have time to fumble over to their bedside table drawer for a different toy.
11. For the person who hates being on top
Vulva-on-top sex can be tougher to pair a standard vibrator with compared to, say, doggy-style. So a couple’s vibe might help shrink that orgasm gap. Alternatively, you can also just go down on them for like, an hour. (Hint: This is secretly all anyone wants!)
12. For the adventurous person who would have sex while parasailing if they could
Buy inspo cards for sex positions in every room of your house. Kitchen table? Sure. Bathroom floor? Why not? Oh, because no one’s cleaned it in two weeks and it’s disgusting? Good point. Kitchen table it is.
13. For the shy partner who struggles to tell you what they really want
Show is sometimes much more powerful than tell, so if you’re cool with it, let them tie you up and blindfold you. This way, they have all the power to do whatever it is they secretly dream of doing in bed. Make sure to have a safe word in place (and talk about any hard limits) and get ready for a night that’ll blow your mind.
14. For the partner who can only orgasm in doggy-style, even though it sometimes gets boring for you
If you want to low-key change things up a tiny bit, you can always use a Liberator wedge or stack of pillows to try out some new angles. Encourage them to lie down or bend over the wedge instead of staying on their knees to make things more comfortable and creative.
1. For the person who always has the latest gadgets
For a gift that’s equal parts tech and sex, the Lelo F1s Developer Kit is hard to beat. It’s one of Lelo’s bestsellers and it’s easy to understand why. The silicone blowjob sleeve has ten separate sensors, two powerful motors, and a window in the casing so you can watch what’s happening while the machine works its magic. There are easy one-handed controls for maximum feel-good and minimal fumble, and you can also download the app to control it.
2. For the shy partner who you have a feeling might be a Christian Grey 2.0
Shy people sometimes have a hard time saying what they really want because they don’t want to scare you. If you’re into BDSM play, and you have the slightest inkling they may be too, try these handcuffs as a way to introduce bondage-play into your sex life. Use them on yourself first, then—with consent of course—considering switching to see if your partner has any ounce of submissiveness themselves.
3. For the person who enjoys the finer things in life
And by finer things in life, we mean you, dressed up in sexy lingerie, in their bed. Surprise your boo by putting on this lil set and giving them a lap dance so epic, they won’t be able to close their mouth from drooling. A gift for both of you, indeed.
4. For your ass-obsessed partner who can’t stop touching your booty
Buy them a little leather flogger they can spank you with while you do it doggy-style. It’s lightweight enough that it’s not as intense as a paddle, and honestly, they’ll just be so hyped to get to spend up close and personal time with your butt that the flogger is just icing on the booty cake.
5. For your boob-obsessed partner who would touch them nonstop if you were cool with it
Get on top of your boob-obsessed partner and encourage them to play with your nipples. Then, pull out these sexy nipple clamps. Adjust the intensity depending on how much pain you like with your pleasure for a special kind of pinch.
6. For your partner who just casually mentioned they might like to try butt play at some point
If they’ve subtly hinted that they’d be into doing some anal play, get a butt plug. Butt plugs are great for all bodies, as everyone has a butt, so if your partner wants something in their butt, put something in there! And if you’re considering receiving anal, try a butt plug and see how that feels. Use the remote or the app to control the rumbly vibrations from anywhere.
7. For your partner who *loves* blow jobs
Pro tip: Dicks don’t necessarily taste good, but this delicious lubricant does. Why give a skin-flavored blowjob when you can choose from an assortment of lube flavors like strawberry, peppermint, and watermelon? Oral sex just got more pleasurable for both of you. You’re welc.
