Every holiday season, every publication imaginable puts together gift guides filled with shopping ideas for the festively confused. It has always surprised me that more gift guides for husbands and wives and boyfriends and girlfriends, don’t suggest sexy goodies. Lots of sex toys are inexpensive (under $40, with lots of them under $30) and unlike a hand lotion or yet another scented candle, they can last for years. I would not recommend that a sex toy be your only gift to a partner this year, as gifts like this can be seen more as “for us” rather than “for you.” But if you’re looking for a stocking stuffer or an extra something-something to go with another gift, I say go sexy!

Some of us spend weeks planning our holiday gift shopping. Some of us make extensive lists and go on multiple shopping outings. And others of us wait until Christmas day to ransack our homes looking for something, anything, we can do without. Then we wrap it in emergency tissue paper we keep under the sink. Ok, I confess. I am a chronic regifter. I suppose I could blame it on busy-ness, lazy-ness, or poor-ness. But I won’t. There was a time in my life when I bought holiday gifts. But that time has passed. I haven’t gone holiday shopping in years. I feel secure in the knowledge that I show my loved ones how much they mean to me year-round. So why get all extravagant with gifts just because the season dictates it? Still, it’s nice to show up with a little something. After the jump, some totally respectable holiday regift ideas.
