7 Awkward Sexy Holiday Gifts For Everyone In Your Life From Bustle's 'I Want It That Way' Podcast
It's once again the most magical time of the year— the time when you realize that while you've spent the past few months busily absorbed in your plans for opening the world's first pizza rolls-only restaurant, you completely forgot about all the winter gift-based holidays, and now everything listed on holiday gift guides is already sold out, and there's nothing left at your local brick-and-mortar shopping emporium besides travel-size shampoos and shaving lather dispensers shaped like Marco Rubio. What are you to do? Luckily, the latest episode of Bustle's "I Want It That Way" podcast has you covered; we looked into the most awkward intersection of sex and the holidays — hooking up with your hometown exes — but we also explore a little-understood part of awkward holiday sexuality: the sexy holiday-themed gift. And let me just tell you now, we found the perfect candy cane-shaped penis sheath for your office Secret Santa exchange.
Take a listen below:
Why are there so many sexy holiday-themed gifts, and who are they designed for? People who write erotica about Rudolph and Frosty? People who can only orgasm while dressed up as a piece of gingerbread? People who troll Tinder every Christmas Eve seeking a partner willing to dress up like Tim Allen in The Santa Clause? We don't know, and frankly, we hope to never know. But since you totally slept on finding regular holiday presents and are now desperate for guidance, the items below are what your loved ones will be finding stuffed down their stockings or shoved beneath their Hanukkah bushes this season. It really is a wonderful life, right?

The secret to being the sexiest reindeer on the block?

Get this present to confuse your enemies! Hell, get this present to confuse your friends! Get this present and get kicked out of your family gathering, which is actually what you wanted the whole time because you have 5:45 tickets for Star Wars! Show just a picture of this to your boyfriend and have him go, "Why would anyone...oh no, and it's a butt plug?" How can one gift help you accomplish all of these goals? It's pure holiday magic, friend.
