Staying home with someone you love (to play with) is about to get even hotter, wetter, and better. Half the toys on this list of our favorite playthings are remote controlled or app-based; so you can play as nice or as naughty as you like this holiday season—even from afar.
6 Sex Toy Gifts Perfect for Any and All Couples
Read on for our top picks: vibrators, dildos, harnesses, and other toys for couples of all genders, orientations, arrangements, and positions. Happy holidays, everyone—and remember, the best things in life give pleasure.
The We-Vibe Chorus is handsfree, adjustable, and highly intuitive C-shaped wearable vibe—meaning it’s easy to find your body’s best fit, and with the unique touch-sense mode, your movements control its vibrations. Vulva-owners can wear it while receiving penetration from a dildo or penis—or while giving it, strapped-on. The slimmer arm slips inside the vagina, the other rests on the clit. Each arm has its own motor so you can tailor the vibration to your body’s likes.
This incredible toy was designed for couples play, so there are no limitations on how you can use it, During intercourse? Check! Foreplay? Check? Scissoring? Check! You’re only limited by your imagination! Wear this toy outside of the bedroom, or even outside of the house; we won’t tell.
Set it to “beat mode” when you want to vibe to music, use the squeeze remote or—if you’re into power exchange—let your partner take control using the WeConnect app. If you’ve tried the app before with mixed results, try again; they’ve improved the connectivity. The Chorus is made of fully-waterproof, soft-touch silicone and features a truly delicious range of orgasm-inducing vibration patterns and intensities.
Wand by We-Vibe
Wand by We-Vibe is an advanced powerful cordless, waterproof wand vibrator. Its remote control capability works with Bluetooth and the We-Connect app---for fun with lovers near and far. The We-Connect app offers a video function, so whoever’s in charge of the vibration patterns and intensity levels can see and hear their partner’s response—and adjust accordingly. Super fun if you’re into forced orgasms or orgasm denial.
Wand by We-Vibe is made of water-resistant, bodysafe materials and its bulbous, flexible head is great for those who like strong vibrations and broad stimulation. With the two attachments Flutter and Stroke you will be able to find nonstop, easy options for partner play. Its unlimited vibration patterns can sync to voice or ambient sound, and you can design a custom pattern just for you! Did someone say two hours of continuous, strong, rumbly vibrations? Yes please.
Zumio S, X or E
The Zumio is a power tool that’s not for the faint of heart. Unlike a vibrator, Zumo oscillates. Its unique tip is designed to stimulate with high-speed, tiny circles that mimic the motion of a fingertip. That movement makes it perfect to use alongside your own fingertips. This award-winning Spirotip technology is all about pressure-sensitive pinpoint stimulation: press gently for fast, intense rotation; press harder for slower, deeper, even more intense stimulation. You can also lay your finger on top of the toy during use and it will soften the sensation!
Fun for the clitoris, nipples, and penis—and anyplace else your (or your partner’s) body desires. It’s the perfect toy for experimentation, created to help you discover new pleasure points without the numbness that vibration can sometimes cause. Choose from three models: Zumio S features a short, more bulbous tip for lower intensity and slightly broader stimulation. Zumio X offers a narrower, firmer, longer medium-round tip for more intensity. And the Zumio E, with a curved rigid stem and small rounded tip that rotates elliptically, offers the most intense sensation. If you’re looking for something unlike either of you have ever felt before—well, you just found it.
The We-Vibe Vector is basically the prostate’s dream come true. It’s a waterproof, whisper-quiet vibrating massager designed for dual stimulation. Think gentle pressure and low, rumbly vibrations from the outside, targeting the perineum and directly massaging the prostate on the inside.
A hands-free, app-and Bluetooth-enabled toy that’ll give you orgasms like earthquakes. Fun to wear during penetrative sex, for the sensation of giving and receiving all at once. Also fun as an extra treat during oral, or during a self-pleasure session with your playmate controlling the vibe. Waterproof, made of silicone, with 60 minutes of play per charge. Be sure to hydrate, just saying.
Spareparts Harnesses are about to change your mind about harnesses; these are comfortable, versatile, durable—and a reflection of your personal style and specific sexual energy. They have something for everyone, and a style for every body shape and size! The Tomboi II boxer brief is super versatile: a double harness that allows for double penetration; it’s cleverly designed with a packer pouch and pockets so your bullet vibes and condoms will always be handy. Available in sizes XXS-5X. The Joque is a two-strap harness with a stretchable O-ring to accommodate different-sized dildos; it also features internal pockets for bullet vibes.
Sasha and Bella are for lovers of lingerie; adjustable side ruching and ribbons give you the option to wear them as boy shorts or high-cut panties with a little peek-a-boo of rear cleavage. Both feature removable garters and internal mini-vibe pockets. Made for dildos 1.25 to 2.25 inches in diameter. Available in S-XL, the Bella also has a plus-size 1(X-3X) option. Add one (or more) of these to your go-to collection, or finally give in to your pegging fantasy. If not now, then when?
Vixen Creations Dildo
Vixen Creations Dildos are the gold-standard, made of 100% platinum hand-poured silicone. They won’t degrade, they’re non-porous, so they’re easily sanitized and extremely hygienic. Besides that, they’re gorgeous, flexible, and have that too-real (too rare) quality of absorbing and retaining body heat.
Their Vixskin line is our top pick—designed with two layers of silicone: soft on the outside, firmer on the inside, for that “as good as the real thing” feeling. The company offers a lifetime warranty, and these beauties come in a large, wide, hefty, girthy range of sizes and skin-tone colors—plus neon, rainbow, marble, and glittery colors. One sided, two-sided, suction cup, and Magic Wand attachments. Double up with a Spareparts harness, and don’t blame us if you’re both suddenly tempted to call in sick and spend all day in bed.
Whichever toy you end up going with this holiday season, we hope it brings you both ample amounts of naughtiness and niceness!
