Self care has entered the chat. More than ever before, people are looking for Christmas gifts that pamper, praise and further our pleasure practices. Whether you’re seeking something a little out of the ordinary, something special to surprise a certain someone or something just for you, we’ve got gift ideas out the wahzoo!

Presenting, this year’s most coveted presents:

1. For The Lingerie Lover

Bodystockings, strappy bras and black lace? Fabulous. This category is dedicated to the person who knows their Bracli from their Bordelle and then some. First, figure out what kinds of lingerie your giftee prefers (silky, sheer, or something coy and covered?), then scope out a budget, sizing and fit. Hopeless Lingerie specialises in dark and romantic pieces handmade locally in sizes XXS-5XL. La Fille d’O makes inclusive intimate apparel for wearing every day, over, under, and with whatever you like. And of course, Bordelle, an established lingerie house, specialises in suspenders, thongs, basques and more; luxurious pieces with features like 24k gold hardware that are perfect for gifting. Need a hand with sizing or style? Read 7 Tips For Choosing Lingerie for a Loved One, by our resident lingerie expert, Tori.

2. For The Fantasy Fanatics

Treat them to a summer of smutty reading with our curated selection of erotica. From genderqueer erotica to BDSM and Dom and Sub dynamics or even classics like Justine by the Marquis de Sade, there’s a page-turner for every fiction-fan. Bookish? You bet.

3. For The Intellectual

Fuel their growth, knowledge and education in the sexual, health and sensuality space with these informative, engaging and entertaining reads. For a guide to hot healthy hookups and shame free sex, there’s ‘Getting It’ by Allison Moon, Slut ethics with Janet W. Hardy and Dossie Easton, and for the sex-ed they wish they’d had in high school; Girl Sex 101.

4. For The Self-Help Obsessed

Healing, thriving or switching, they’re going to love these texts that tell them to slow down and reconnect with their sensual side. Euphemia Russell’s Slow Pleasure is perfect for exploring and building a pleasure practice. Help them make room for myth-busting with Come As You Are: The Surprising New Science That Will Transform Your Sex Life by Emily Nagoski, and support their sensual wisdom with Urban Tantra: Sacred Sex For The 21st Century - Second Edition.

5. For The Kinky Amateur

Did somebody say Shibari? This sensual artform is great for dabbling kinksters looking to expand their horizons. Start with a little rope, some safety scissors and a guide to perfecting every bind, for every body. Soon they too will be smitten with this expression of self-restraint. All roped out? Perhaps a little wax play in the form of drip candles is in order.

6. For The Kinky Connoisseur

Nipple clamps? Check. Paddles? Check. All that’s missing is a Wartenberg Wheel…oh, never mind. What do you get the kinkiest friend you know? Don’t worry, as great communicators, they’ll tell you.

Make a big impact this year.​​

7. For The Lighthearted

From colouring books to naughty puzzles, notebooks and more, treat your loved one to a gift that tickles them pink, in all the right ways.

8. For The BDSM Baddie

With bondage goodies in vegan leather, restraints and whips aplenty there’s no shortage of gift ideas for the BDSM lover in your life. Consider what they’re into, then accessorise accordingly. A flogging fanatic? Say no more. Roleplay on the cards? What about some bondage wear or wrist cuffs? Water sports? Then perhaps a Liberator Throw is in order. You’re welcome.

Stainless steel is always a solid gift idea..​​

10. For The Size Queen

This gift is dedicated to the folks that can take it all. Send in The Boss by Fun Factory or give the L or XL Dual Density Dildo by strap-on-me, a go. Because no matter your pronouns, anyone can be a size queen.

What the world needs now, is lube, sweet lube. No, not just for some, but for everyone! Complement their impressive toy chest with lubes (like the very aesthetic Uberlube), massage candles and pleasurements to elevate their practice. On for Her Arousal Oil is an excellent addition to the bedside drawer, whereas gifts like Dripfeed Breath Spray come in handy for morning sex and pre-meeting freshen-ups alike.
