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!
And it should go without saying this slideshow is NSFW, although none of the images are explicit. Enjoy!
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.

Get a look at the holiday card sent out to some lucky recipients from the cast and crew of “Saturday Night Live” — it’s Norman Rockwell meets Stefon, “Weekend Update”‘s resident club kid! Seeing this gave me the gentle push I needed to spend 30 minutes watching Stefon skits on Hulu (four of which are above). Thanks, NBC!
This year, instead of exchanging holiday presents here at The Frisky, we’ve decided to give each other slideshows of the gifts we would give one another if money were no object. Last week, the staff gifted me with some awesome imaginary presents. This week it’s Julie’s turn! Click through to see the gifts in her virtual stocking. It’s the thought that counts, right?
If your lady wants to run to the bedroom immediately after unwrapping your present (meaning your holiday gift, not the present in your pants), she probably liked it. For post-gift sex indicates that your present was thoughtful, touching, meaningful, and impressive. These gifts will not inspire any sort of arousal. If you hope to get laid this holiday season, you may want to avoid slipping these gifts under the tree.
The holidays are the worst when it comes to breakups. If you’re in a relationship that’s in the pits, it’s often difficult to extract yourself from it in time to avoid having to get your unwanted significant other a present. So if your New Year’s resolution is to be single and mingling in 2012, we’ve got a few gift suggestions that will help give your boyfriend a clue of what’s to come.
John DeVore has a, heh, pet peeve: dogs in Santa hats and elf suits and Mrs. Claus glasses. Over at Dumb As A Blog, he’s assembled 20 visual examples of dogs loathing the holidays for this very reason, complete with hilarious captions. Check it out here!
