If you’re pondering what to get your significant other this holiday season, we have you covered! Here are our top picks this year for sexy holiday gift-giving and stocking-stuffing. Visit us in person or peruse our online store to snatch these up.
Searching for a rechargeable vibrator that doesn’t break the bank? The entire Mini Marvels collection offers brightly-colored silicone toys that are USB rechargeable, inexpensive, and oh so fun!
Each Marvel offers something a little different, like the adorable blue Eggciter and the tongue-shaped Flicker that give pinpoint stimulation, or the Bunny, which has two flexible ears that can surround the clitoris for maximum sensation. There is also the Marvelous Massager, which is a staff favorite for its brilliant shape and eye-catching color. The Massager is designed to fit snugly between fingers, making it easy to hold onto for solo play or to use with a partner. The Mini Marvels are also waterproof, which means they’re perfect for the bath or shower!
Love using coconut oil for massage and sensual use but not so into trying to scrape solid oil out of a big jar? Fortunately, Sliquid has created a product that is much more convenient for the bedroom! Sliquid Soul is a luxurious and long-lasting oil-based lubricant and moisturizer made with organic coconut oil and other natural seed oils (sunflower, shea butter, cocoa seed butter, almond, and apricot kernel oil). While it is not compatible with latex (like condoms or gloves), Sliquid Soul is great with most non-porous toys and works especially well for hand jobs and full body massage.
Looking for a locally-made holiday gift and/or a present for that special kinky someone? Well, the Tread Mark Slapper from In Her Tube is both locally-made and deliciously mean! Made with 100% recycled rubber, it is easy to clean and leaves quite an impact despite its compact size (9” long handle and a 6 ½” double slapper). A perfect addition to any toy bag or dungeon!
If you’re looking for a toy that has people talking, or just a unique pleasure experience, The BJ is that and more! Designed specifically for blow jobs, this silicone dildo allows the wearer to feel suction whenever a giver sucks on the head. Fun! Handmade by #1 Laboratory, this hollow yet sturdy dildo is great for harness wearers and anyone else who loves BJs. Comes in three realistic skin tones plus teal!
Everyone loves sampler packs! We create these She Bop sampler packs each holiday, and this year our pack includes a three-speed Power Bullet vibe, back-up batteries, a She Bop button and sticker, three lube samples (Uberlube, Sliquid H2O, and Sutil), and one condom (Trustex Non-Lubricated). At $19, it’s an inexpensive way to try some new things and see what you like (and it’s the perfect stocking stuffer size).
The Hot Octopuss Pulse II Duo is an award-winning toy created for both solo and partner use. Unlike other couples’ toys that are usually designed to be inserted vaginally (such as We-Vibe Sync), The Pulse II Duo is designed for penises – and can be used flaccid or erect! Its innovative conch-like shape and included remote allows the Pulse II Duo to be used hands-free. A partner can also straddle atop the toy and enjoy the deep and rumbly vibrations that come from the toy’s patented PulsePlate™ technology.
After another successful Kickstarter, Erika Moen & Matthew Nolan have come out with Oh Joy, Sex Toy: Volume Three just in time for the holidays! This 312-page book is a must-have for fans of Oh Joy Sex Toy, but also makes a great gift for cartoon and comic lovers as well as sex geeks. Educational and funny — and with comics about everything from queer porn, to HPV, to foreskin — this volume may very well be the best one yet!
Another locally-made product that receives high praise from Team Bop is the Ramona Harness by Switch Leather. All of Switch’s harnesses are gorgeous, and handmade with very high-quality leather and shiny hardware that looks (and feels) fantastic. But Ramona’s smooth back panel, which offers extra support and acts as a driver pad, make this harness the pick of the year. Available in three sizes and two colors (black with stainless nickel-plated hardware or brown with brass hardware), Ramona is an excellent choice for anyone who wants to fall in love with their harness or give a gift that will be loved for years to come.
Looking back over the past six years of holiday picks, we realized that we had never suggested a class as one of our gift ideas. However, we think knowledge is one of the best gifts you can give, so this year we recommend embarking on an evening of entertaining sex education! The Joys of Toys! on Wednesday, December 14th is taught by She Bop in-house educator Gretchen, and would make for a super fun outing that goes beyond dinner and cocktails. Come learn about where sex toys originated, how they have evolved, and what’s new on the scene, as well as learning all about lubricant, vibrators, anal toys, BDSM toys, and more! BONUS: class attendees get 10% off their purchases in She Bop the night of the Joys of Toys class!
