I am here say we should change giving sex toys as gifts. Not just for your loved ones, but for your friends! Masturbating is a lot of self-care, so giving someone a toy or two is like giving someone a scented candle or regular bath salts. It’s a gift to say “you need to relax.” Even when given casually, sex toys often make thoughtful and welcome gifts. We selected the items on this list with ideas, whether you’re shopping for a friend, partner, or parent, each is a different way to give a loved one a new way to care for themselves.
Please note that this list is for reference only. We have toys for all types of genitals below. For more information, don’t forget to check out our list of the Best Toys for Every Body, as well as our holiday gift ideas.
