Now that the holidays are nearly upon us, 'tis the season for gift shopping — something that's typically much more fun in theory than it is in practice. As easy as shopping for
yourself might be, the pressure to find the 'perfect' gift for everyone else on your list can make holiday shopping a stressful experience... and shopping for a significant other can be especially tricky. If you're still trying to figure out what to get your partner for the holidays, here's a friendly reminder that sex toys make an amazing gift year-round — so why not add some of the best sex toys to buy for your partner to your holiday shopping list?
If your partner has expressed an interest in
incorporating sex toys into their sexual routine — whether during masturbation or during your partnered sessions, too — the holidays are the perfect time to make all their pleasure-filled dreams come true. But if your partner is new to using sex toys, it can be a tad tricky to pick out just the right toy for them. Fortunately, there are plenty of great sex toys for beginners that are easy to use, not intimidating, and still pack serious potential for pleasure.
Here are 13 sex toys that anyone can use, even if they're a total newbie to the
world of sex tech. (Psst: an added bonus of buying a sex toy for your partner this holiday season? If you plan to use it in bed together, it's basically like you're gifting yourself, too.) 1 Le Wand Petite
A wand-style vibe like the
Le Wand Petite is a classic for a reason: it's both powerful and versatile. No need to feel obligated to keep this toy nestled in the nether regions: the strong, targeted vibrations feel great on other erogenous zones, too — nipples, neck, or wherever else piques your interest. 2 Unbound Squish
If you want to get your partner a toy that is super intuitive and easy to use, the
Unbound Squish is a great place to start. The harder you squeeze the Squish, the stronger its vibrations — and this small toy is super discreet and portable, too. 3 MysteryVibe Crescendo
When it comes to how to use sex toys, there are pretty much no rules — and the
MysteryVibe Crescendo is the perfect example of that. This uniquely shaped, bendable toy can take any form your imagination desires, which makes it a great toy for beginners to experiment with in order to learn what they like. 4 B-Vibe Novice Plug
If your partner is
intrigued by the idea of anal play but wants to start slow (which is always a good idea, btw), the Novice Plug from b-Vibe is an unintimidating toy to start with. This vibrating butt plug is small enough that it won't be scary for a newbie — just don't forget: when in doubt, more lube is always better! 5 Eva II
If your partner has a vagina, this super tiny wearable vibe from
Dame Products makes a great gift. Simply put it in place by tucking the 'wings' under the labia, lie back, and enjoy as it adds feel-good vibrations to either solo or partnered sex. 6 Je Joeu Bullet
When you're shopping for a sex toy novice, you can't go wrong with a simple bullet vibe. This
Je Joue bullet has a silky soft exterior, and a tip for targeted stimulation. 7 We-Vibe Verge
If you're shopping for someone with a penis, the
We-Vibe Verge penis ring makes a great gift. It's no-frills and easy to use, but is designed to stimulate the testicles when worn during masturbation, and the clitoris when worn during sex with someone who has a vagina. 8 Satisfyer Pro 2
If your partner has a vagina and loves the feeling of oral sex, this toy from
Satisfyer is sure to — you guessed it — satisfy. It uses something called "pressure wave stimulation" to mimic the suction-like feeling of oral... and it's all but guaranteed to blow your partner's mind. 9 9. LELO Lily 2
This pocket-sized massager from
LELO not only has eight vibration patterns, but also has a sexy secret: it's actually infused with a signature fragrance that's designed to make it even more pleasurable to your senses during use. 10 Unbound Gem
Who says a sex toy needs to vibrate in order to bring you pleasure? This gorgeous glass dildo from
Unbound is just as pleasing to the body as it is to the eye — just be sure to gift your partner a bottle of lube to go with it, especially if they plan to use it anally. 11 JimmyJane Iconic Rabbit 2
The "rabbit" is one of the most well-known styles of vibrators, and this sleek, modern-looking iteration from
JimmyJane definitely gets the job done. In addition to vibrating, the shaft of this toy also rotates — meaning your partner will experience even more stimulation when they use it.
And, if you use promo code
BUSTLEGWP at checkout on any JimmyJane product, you'll have the option of any glass toy at checkout plus free shipping. 12 Sweet Vibrations The Perfect Match
Another great rabbit vibrator to get for your partner? This super soft, flexible, silicone vibe from
Sweet Vibrations — it has 10 massage settings to choose from, and feels equally good inside and out of your body. (Don't forget to make a cheesy joke about your partner being your 'perfect match' when you give it to them.) 13 We-Vibe Sync
If you're in the market for something that's equally easy to use during masturbation and during partnered sex, the
We-Vibe Sync makes a great solo and couples toy. It can be inserted into a vagina and worn during intercourse, and either you or your partner can control its vibrations via remote control or app.
So what are you waiting for? Before the holidays are over, start shopping and fill your partner's stocking with as many sex toys as you can reasonably afford!
