Why you should gift your loved one a sex toy this Christmas

Picture this: Christmas 2019, and there I am, snuggled under the twinkling lights of the Christmas tree, unwrapping a gift from my then-boyfriend. The wrapping is classic holiday style – red with adorable teddy bears. But as I tear it open, what do I find? A hot pink vibrator, boldly sitting in its box! My face? A picture of pure shock. Who knew he'd pull off such a daring move? But here's the twist – that vibe turned into my go-to nightly routine and toy for partner play, still making it to the top of my best-ever Christmas gifts list.

At Nancy, we believe that gifting your loved one a sex toy this Christmas (or any day of the year) is the perfect way to warm up the holiday spirit and step outside the box of ‘conventional’ gift-giving. Gifting your loved one a sex toy can add an unexpected spark to your relationship and deepen your intimacy in a fun and exciting way. Here are a few reasons why you should consider gifting a sex toy this Christmas! 

Embracing a sex-positive culture

In a world where conversations about sexual wellness are becoming more mainstream (thanks, Sex Education!), a sex toy as a Christmas gift is right on trend. It's about embracing a sex-positive culture, where pleasure is accepted and celebrated. This gift says, "I'm here for all parts of you." It encourages a healthy exploration of sexuality and is a fun way to introduce novelty and intimacy in a consensual and informed manner, creating connection and communication between partners.

Wellness and intimacy combined

More than just physical pleasure, a sex toy symbolises a deeper understanding of your partner's wellness and self-care. It's a nod to their mental and emotional health, acknowledging the stress-relieving, mood-boosting benefits of sexual wellness. Plus, it's a great way to create intimacy, providing a playful, shared exploration of new sexual desires. By gifting such a personal item, you're communicating trust and openness, ultimately strengthening the bond between you. It shows a commitment to your partner's happiness and a willingness to invest in the mutual satisfaction and growth of your relationship.

The ultimate personalised gift

Selecting the perfect sex toy for your partner shows a level of thoughtfulness and care that goes beyond traditional gift-giving. It's about knowing their desires, preferences, and maybe even pushing the boundaries of their comfort zone in an exciting, consensual way. It’s a gift that goes beyond just festive paper, but touches on respect, understanding, and an invitation for deeper connection.

The gift of better sex

Did you know that regular masturbation can also lead to better-partnered sex? Masturbation allows you to understand how your body works. Ultimately, it tells you what you enjoy and what brings you the most pleasure. Once you know what you enjoy, it is easier to talk to someone else about it. You can directly tell your partner what you enjoy and even give them instruction on how to do it. Partnered sex should be about mutual enjoyment! A happy side effect is that when barriers around talking about sex are broken down in relationships, it also gets easier to talk about the stickier stuff like condoms and boundaries, which can often place strain on a couple.

This holiday season, let's redefine gift-giving. We can celebrate our relationships, our openness, and our joy in discovering each other in new and delightful ways- and we don’t have to be ashamed of it! Christmas is all about spreading the good vibes (haha, get it?).
