Think about it: Everyone wants to feel desired—so when your significant other unwraps a gift that screams, "I want you," (even if it's one they thought they'd never use)—your love life is sure to be as lit as that Christmas tree.
And if it's your bestie? You're giving them something they want, but wouldn't splurge on (or choose) themselves. Since our dearest friends often know us better than we know ourselves, your trusted recommendation will be much appreciated. Maybe, you'll even buy yourself a matching gift.
Of course, there's a fine line between sexy Christmas gifts that are actually sexy and ones that are kind of tacky, creepy, and maybe even just plain offensive. There are a million and one spicy options out there, so to help you feel a bit less overwhelmed (you're welcome), here's the ultimate list of the best sexy Christmas gifts to give in 2021, in exceptionally good taste.
You might even discover something new about your own sexy-time preferences. Happy holidays, ya wild animals!
1. Kinky Truth Or Dare Game
Call me nostalgic or old-fashioned, but there’s something so impossibly seductive about a good game of truth-or-dare. Tasked with answering a deeply revealing question or completing an adventurous dare, you end up learning a lot about your partner—and yourself. With this Pick-A-Stick Truth-or-Dare game, you’re sure to light a flame, whether for the first time or the 200th.
2. A Cozy Nightshirt
Silk and satin aren't for everyone—especially if it means waking up all sticky and sweaty. If you're looking to gift a little more breathability in a nightie that begs to be unbuttoned, opt for this cotton nightshirt.
The wearer will be able to channel every rom-com scene in which a hot woman slinks around the house in their partner's booty-skimming shirt. Only this time, it won't be borrowed.
3. A Couples Vibrator
This smooth little guy is OH-so-great for both the giver and receiver. The vibrator is super quiet—perfect for your BFF who's staying with their large fam over the holidays.
Lingerie isn’t just for cis women. Rihanna's uber sexy line of lingerie makes underwear to accommodate all types of genitals, so you can get sets for both you and your partner.
5. A Helpful Massage Tool
Love receiving massages but hate giving them? (I feel you.) This hand-like tool helps you knead into your S.O.'s knots and kinks without creating any for yourself. Plus, they'll be more inclined to go to town on your shoulders with this nifty toy, too, so it's a win for both of you.
6. Low-Rise Thong
Warning: This sexy lace thong is sure to put your partner in the mood, so maybe gift this one somewhere *private* and not in front of the entire fam.
7. A Panty Vibrator
The We-Vibe Moxie is the ultimate gift for both of you—your partner gets to control the vibrator from afar (via the mobile app or the remote control), and you get to enjoy all the powerful rumbling without knowing what comes next.
It's the perfect sexy prezzie for all-day foreplay, long-distance couples, or holidays not spent together.
8. A Silky Nightie
When we think of silk nightgowns, our minds often race with images of Grace Kelly in Rear Window or Lauren Bacall in The Big Sleep. And while the garment may no longer be floor-length or topped with a dressing gown, it remains a classic for a reason.
For a buttery soft feel and a subtle glimpse of what’s underneath, try this gorgeous silk nightie from LilySilk, available in classic black and red as well as light pink and navy.
9. A Sex Pillow
Help your shy friend take things up a notch by giving them this special sex pillow. They can use it to elevate their hips while experimenting with new sex positions (for deeper penetration) or lean on it for support during more intricate moves.
Either way, win-win. And since they'll also enjoy sleeping in bed, this pillow also helps to reduce snoring.
10. Non-sticky Lube
In search of something a little smaller to keep at bae's? Try this bottle from Überlube.
Nice silicone lube is the stuff of sex dreams—including anal, btw—especially when it doesn't dry up or create a sticky situation. This is the sexy equivalent to body wash and deodorant stocking stuffers. (You know, the essential stuff people hate buying for themselves...)
11. An Oral-Sex Simulator
If your friend is perpetually unsatisfied in their sex life, going through a recent breakup, or simply deserves a good orgasm or two (who doesn't, honestly?), brighten up their holiday season with the sexiest gift of all: a toy that mimics cunnilingus.
The Kissed Handheld Vibrator (a very fitting name) has a "tongue that won’t quit" and will have them forgetting their ex ever existed in mere minutes.
12. Nipple Covers
Okay, how cute are these tie-dye leaf nipple covers? They stick to your breasts via silicone adhesive to remind you (and your partner) that you are the star of the show.
13. A Lipstick Vibrator
Give the gift of lipstick...as a vibrator. At just $17 (a steal!), this travel-friendly vibe is perfect for the pal or roommate who needs to get theirs when they're home for the holidays (or while trying to have quiet sex near their S.O.'s family).
14. Massage Oil
It's safe to say that massage oil is here to stay. This one is perfect for a super relaxing massage, thanks to the natural calming properties of lavender and chamomile oils.
15. Fancy Massage Oil
For the nights (or mornings, or afternoons) when you want to take your time, easing into sex with a massage is clutch. Nothing screams intimacy like the sexy gift of slow and gentle touching—especially when a luxe, lavish massage oil is involved.
This cold-weather-perfect one from Aesop has notes of wood with bursts of blood orange and citrus and hydrates skin on contact. Worth every penny.
16. A Butt Plug
This butt plug is kind of fancy-looking, right? It's a beginner- to intermediate-friendly toy for those interested in anal play—including the men in your life who might be interested in exploring that prostate pleasure center.
17. Fishnet Stockings
These stockings elongate your legs and ooze serious sex appeal, so gift 'em to yourself and wear them under your clothes. They'll all but guarantee a quickie when you walk in the door at home.
18. Versatile Bondage Tape
If you're ready to experiment with a little good old-fashioned BDSM fun ('tis the season of giving, so now is the time), look no further than this inexpensive roll of bondage tape. It's made of PVC, so it sticks to itself (not your hair), and works well as a blindfold, gag, restraint, or wrap. Plus, at only $9 a roll, you have 65 feet to play with...options!
19. Sexy Bath Salts
It's hard to feel sexy when you're stressed AF. This Soak salt blend is perfect for some much needed them-time or joint baths—the scent (amber, cedar leaf, clove, lemongrass, medjool date) is intoxicating either way.
20. A Massage Candle
Lelo's massage candle promises to set the mood and get the sexy touching started. Doubling as a candle and massage oil (just pour the melted wax on their back when it's no longer burning hot), this is the perfect gift to pair with a “Good for One Massage” coupon.
21. A Cool Cock Ring
A cock ring that doesn't look like a cock ring might be the way to go in the name of sexy holiday gifts. It'll spice up every kind of penetration for each party (more fullness for you, vibration for both).
This one is much less intimidating than some rings out there, so he'll actually, ya know, use it.
22. A Finger Vibrator
It wouldn’t be a gift guide without a mention of this bad boy. The Fin is the perfect vibrator for people who want a little toy play while being penetrated, since it slips right onto your finger.
23. Cutest Vibe Ever
What better way to express your love than with a 10-speed vibrator shaped as a heart? This strikes the perfect balance between sentimental and practical. Ideal, no? <3
24. An Arousing Drink
Sometimes, it’s tough to get into the right frame of mind for the bedroom, and you need a little somethin' extra to get in the mood. When that's the case, look no further than the Pink Grapefruit & Maca For Arousal sparkling water from trendy drinks brand Free Rain.
The bubbly beverage promises to nourish libido, enhance sexual energy, and support hormone balance—what more could you ask for?
25. A Cheeky Clutch
Any penis-loving friend will laugh (and love) when they receive this sexy yet straightforward Christmas gift. They can throw condoms, lube, tampons, whatever inside to have all their goodies in one handy place.
26. A Sexy Bath Bomb
Perfect for a baller on a budget, get your partner or cousin a not-too-suggestive bath bomb and a bottle of bubbly to do with them what they will. Waterproof sex toy, optional.
27. Luxe Cuffs
Nothing spices things up in the bedroom quite like handcuffs, and these gold-plated leather cuffs are as chic and minimalist as they are sexy. Slip them onto your (or your partner’s) wrists or ankles with consent, and let the fun begin!
28. Mystery Vibe Crescendo
This fun, bendy vibrator from MysteryVibe is a very cool toy that's relatively new to the scene, and one that works for any gender. Able to bend in every which way, this baby will find alllll your loved one’s hot spots. So gift it, like now.
29. Le Wand Petite
A tried-and-true favorite, this little wand (a mini version of the OG award-winning Le Wand) packs a ton of power into a small toy. Plus, you can always pretend it’s a neck massager if your gift recipient is on the shy side. (They'll thank you either way!)
30. A Vibrator Necklace
This sleek vibe doubles as a necklace that anyone can totally wear in front of their grandmother without her knowing its true function. Better yet, get it for your grandmother. You go, grandma.
Want to go beyond the tangible gifts?
Actions speak louder than presents, after all. So, here are a couple of sexy ways to keep on giving this holiday season:
1. Ethical Porn
Did you know there's such a thing as ethical porn? Well, there is, and you can’t find it on PornHub, but you can find a lot of options on the Sexual Health Includes Pleasure (SHIP) site. SHIP is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing resources around inclusive sexual health. Gift your sweetie some seriously quality porn this holiday season and feel good AF about it.
