She Bop’s Picks: Holiday Gifts
A gift from She Bop is great any time of the year, but there sure is something special about unwrapping a holiday present or opening a stocking and discovering a brand new sex toy! Here are our top picks for 2017. Visit us in person or shop our online store to get your hands on one of these fun products!
Don’t forget to check out our picks from 2016, 2015, 2014, and 2013 for even more ideas.
Looking for an affordable rechargeable vibrator that’s great for travel? Look no further than the Wink+ by Crave! Its slim, chic design is perfect for tucking into a purse for date night or discreetly displaying on a vanity or nightstand. This stainless steel vibrator comes in either shiny Rose Gold or sleek Gun Metal and has many sought-after features. It is fully waterproof, USB rechargeable, and has five different vibration modes — but it’s still an ideal size for a stocking stuffer! Wink+ also comes with a smooth silicone topper that offers a softer sensation and can be easily removed for cleaning.
What do you get for someone who has been naughty this year (or maybe you’re the naughty one and want to send a clear message)? How about Seagrape’s Spanking Set! This convenient kit is both locally-made and deliciously playful. Start off by lighting the Deep Light massage candle, then use the delicate, kissable honey dust and feather to continue setting a sensual mood. Next, wield the handmade leather slapper with the silky spanking powder to create a heavenly cloud upon impact (or use it later to soothe a bottom’s sensitive bottom). End the evening with some aftercare by blowing out the candle and massaging the warm oil onto your lover’s back.
Many anal toys are simply utilitarian in their design — they have a tapered head, flared base, and are made from non-porous and easy to clean materials. That’s an excellent place to start, but what if you want something extra special for your favorite booty? We suggest the Pretty Plug. Wearing this gorgeous butt toy, they’ll feel like royalty! Made with surgical grade stainless steel, the Pretty Plug provides a nice weight and smooth insertion (and can be used with any kind of lube). However, the real eye-catching part of this plug is the genuine Swarovski crystal base in sparkling aurora borealis! Choose from three different sizes, or skip the gift of jewelry this year and buy these stunning plugs as a set.
SUTIL Fine Botanical Lubricant
While there is no such thing as the “perfect” lube for everyone (we all like different things!), there is a lubricant that keeps getting rave reviews from customers and staff. SUTIL (which means “subtle” in Spanish) has a long-lasting glide and luxurious feel that performs a lot like a silicone lube… but it is actually water-based! That means it is compatible with condoms and toys and won’t stain sheets. What’s more, it’s made with Eco-Certified ingredients, is paraben-free and glycerin-free, and it comes in a biodegradable tube. Good for you and the environment, and you can even get it in a 2 oz airplane-friendly size.
Does your partner love their wand-style vibrator for its strong motor but desires something more portable or easier to use together? We suggest the We-Vibe Wish. Like most of the other beloved toys from We-Vibe, the Wish is rechargeable, great for couples or solo use, and is smartphone compatible with the free We-Connect app. That means even more features, custom-created vibration patterns, and the ability to connect and play together even if you’re miles apart! The shape and cushiony texture of the Wish allows users to experiment with broad rumbly stimulation, or use the tip for focused clitoral vibration. It also offers We-Vibe’s exclusive PowerPulse vibration technology, which means deep and powerful sensations without having to be plugged in to the wall.
Nitrile Ring Set
Want something classic but inexpensive to put in your sweetie’s stocking? How about this $10 Nitrile C-Ring Set? It comes with three rings of various sizes (1.25″, 1.5″, and 2″) that are ultra constrictive but stretch ever so slightly for comfort. Cock rings work by gently restricting blood flow out of the penis, which may prolong an erection or make it feel extra hard. Some lovers of c-rings even find that wearing them can intensify their orgasms! Familiarize yourself with our guide to cock rings, throw in a bottle of your favorite lube or one of our lube sampler sets, and have fun!
Strap It To Me! Strap-On Sex for Everybody class on Jan 28th
Creating memories, offering new experiences, and sharing the gift of knowledge — this is what we’re all about! Why not plan an evening of sexy and inspiring education for you and your sweetie or a group of your favorite friends? Any of She Bop’s classes and events make great gifts that keep on giving, but if you’re looking for a unique date night idea, this class could be just the thing! Join our in-house educators, Gretchen and Sid, for a strap-on class that covers pegging, how to choose a harness and dildo, packing/playing, penetration, positions for all body types and abilities, how to get more comfortable using your strap-on, and tips for adding a little extra fun for the wearer. As always, participants of all genders, orientations, size, abilities and experience are welcome.
Switch Collars & Cuffs
Speaking of strap-ons, last year we recommended one of our favorite locally-made products, the Ramona Harness by Switch Leather. If you or a special someone was lucky enough to receive that harness, complete the look this year with the matching Ramona Collar and Switch Leather Wrist Cuffs! Even if you don’t own a Switch harness, these beautiful and functional handmade leather cuffs and collars make a perfect set, and they both look and feel incredibly sexy. Switch Leather Co. uses Horween Chromexcel, the best leather available in the US! Plus, if you love hinting at your kinky inclinations, the designs are also sophisticated enough to be worn as everyday accessories.
A stylish finger vibe that works without the use of batteries or cords is finally here! Fin was created by Dame, a company founded by two women with a mission of designing well-engineered sex toys to heighten intimacy. This cute, versatile vibrator feels like an extension of your hand, which means you can easily add vibration to every touch you give. Fin’s medical grade silicone bulb has two sides — flat and squishy or firm and pointed — for two different type of stimulation. Use it at the base of your palm or on your fingertips for solo fun, slide on the optional tether and give incredible hand jobs by flipping Fin around and letting the vibration travel through the band, or add to oral sex to make orgasms extra powerful! Fin is great for vulvas and penises, charges by USB, and comes with a one year manufacturer’s warranty.
