Explore all new ways to experience intimacy with kink and bondage! As kinksters everywhere can tell you, trying out new, novel activities in the bedroom can drastically change your sex life - and bring you closer to your partner(s)! Even while solo, adding a bit of kink into your pleasure play can add excitement - and help you look forward to those solo pleasure sessions even more.

Whether you've tried a little bit of kink already or this is the year you'd like to give it a try, this sex toy gift guide is going to get you started down the right path for exploring bondage, spanking, and everything else the world of kink has to offer!

How We Chose These Products

There are hundreds of thousands of different sex toys out there. (Really! We're not exaggerating!) But out of those options, we curate this list with a few important factors in mind:

  • It works as intended. While every sex toy isn't made for every body, we only recommend sex toys that provide the sensations they claim to provide.
  • It's as body-safe as possible. For insertable toys, this might mean medical-grade silicone - or stainless steel! For external toys, this might mean plastics or phthalate-free TPR. This also means the majority of these toys are scent-free too!
  • Customers love them! While your body is unique to you, crowdsourcing opinions helps us curate the selection of toys on Kinkly Shop - and this list! We're recommending some of the most well-loved (and best-selling!) toys out there!
  • Staff loves them! In many cases, the toys you see on this list are well-loved by members of our staff. We don't just talk the talk - we use the sex toys too!

Everything you need for beginner-friendly exploration into kink!

Customers are saying:

  • "lol. it was our 1st bondage kit like the name. works great. she ties me up and the wrist things are comfy. it can be hard to knot the straps on the bedposts but we make it work. blindfold is comfy too. totally worth the $$" - L.
  • "This was, quite literally, my first bondage kit! I've gone through other kits since then, but I surprisingly still have the pieces to this kit around. Why? Because I love how versatile it is. It's insanely affordable for all of the options that the kit provides. Each one of the cuffs can be tied to a bed post, to chairs, to couches, or to anything else. They can even be tied up to each other! Along with the blindfold, that makes for a whole large realm of bondage possibilities with this single, affordable kit. I love the more expensive bondage items I've been stocking my toybox with, but I've always loved how easy this kit made it to try anything I wanted on a whim. I don't think I own anything else that's anything like that." - 8.

  • When you're done, simply tuck the cuffs back underneath the mattress for the ultimate in discretion
  • Hundreds of bondage options without changing a thing about your bedroom's look

Customers are saying:

  • "I purchased it and surprised my wife and we had one of the hottest and most intense encounters in the history of our relationship. We added another layer to our already great relationship and we've both had huge smiles on our faces ever since." - J.
  • "The straps slide under the mattress & the weight and friction from the mattress combined with the tension in the tethers keep the tethers from moving a significant amount. The cuffs fasten via Velcro but are padded and very comfortable. I was dubious when I bought it (largely because of the packaging), but it works really well. " - D.
  • "As much as I tried to lean into pleasurable sensations or dodge ticklish ones, the straps kept me from moving more than an inch or two in any direction. Even when I tried to thrash around as they tickled my feet (which is something that typically turns me), I stayed completely put. Infuriating? Yes. Incredibly H-O-T? Also yes." - Gabrielle Kassel
  • "If ropes aren’t your thing, no worries as the straps of this system don’t require any nautical knot tying knowledge. And don’t worry about being confined to the bed. We tried it out on our dining room table and it was just as much fun! For all our future dinner guests … we use Pledge. The table’s clean, I promise." - S.
  • "if done right...the person cannot get out of this yet it's very comfortable as well" - T.

  • "I’ve had cuffs and other kinds of restraints, but I’ve never had a spreader bar. I ended up really liking it. It holds my legs (or arms) securely open. The swivelling clasps at the ends give my feet a little bit of wiggle room, so I stay both mostly immobile with just enough movement to stay comfortable so I can stay bound for a longer amount of time." - J.

The plastic keeps it from cutting into your flesh, but they still give a really good pinch, and the chain gives a little something to tug on. And while I’m sure the others are great, I definitely don’t regret my decision!" - S.
  • "We bought these for a little spice in the bedroom. They delivered!!" - A.
  • "But think bigger than the nips and you'll get your money's worth. My girlfriend finds all sorts of spots to clamp these on me and then tug--my mouth, my ears, she'll gather up the skin on my back and clip that, and then clip and tug on my other lips :) Sometimes it's one clip on her and one clip on me. The possibilities are really endless." - L.

Plus, it's really neat, and it makes her moan constantly. She especially loves how it looks in the dark - like her own personal light show (or so she says).

All-in-One Paddle for Spanking: Ruff Doggie Styles Heart Paddle

Ruff Doggie Styles Double-Sided Heart Paddle shown with the faux fur side facing the camera | Kinkly Shop

Soft warm-up - or tingling spankings?


  • Double-sided paddle offers super-soft, faux fur on one side with sleek leather on the other side
  • Start a warm-up with the faux leather side for an audible spanking that comes without pain
  • Flip the paddle over to utilize the sleek leather for a stinging spanking
  • Alternate mid-spanking as desired - no need to carry multiple paddles!
  • Hanging loop makes it easy to hang this paddle for easy grabbing

Customers are saying:

  • "This is, by far, my favorite paddle in my entire toybox. It gets pulled out almost every time we do a spanking because of its two-sided design. The faux fur design is really, really soft, and since it's connected to a rigid leather side on the other side, it doesn't bend or give under pressure. It leads to a nice, heavy "thunk" with each faux fur strike that doesn't really hurt - but can bring blood flow to the area for a lot of pleasure and warming the body up.
  • "The leather side definitely has a kick to it, but you can vary how intense it is by how you use it. Lighter hits tend to feel slightly stingy, but really heavy hits can definitely leave bruises if that's what you're into. " - M.K.

Customers are saying:

  • "It arrived fully assembled and ready to use. (It was a big box!) But really, it was already set-up and we were using it the night we got it.

    It has seriously put a whole lot more pleasure back into our oral sex sessions. Not only can we do facesitting again with zero of the discomfort, but he can easily breathe when he needs to and he has had zero spinal flare-ups since using this chair. (If you want more of the "authentic" breath-control facesitting experience, you can easily adjust the head sling to make that the case).

    Plus, it's super comfortable, and I find that I can relax into the pleasure a whole lot more than I used to be able to. My knees don't go numb, but the design still lets me "ride" and grind just fine. " - M.K.

Customers are saying:

  • "By a wide margin, the most amazing feeling is on my perineum and anus. When I hooked it up down there and turned it on I had a distinct "WOW" moment of sexual bliss. The sensation is very close to using a vibrator ... but different. There’s a slight prickly feeling that is quite delightful when you find the perfect setting. Because there is some strength to the unit, I could feel the sensation through to my prostate. It wasn’t as powerful as a direct prostate massage, but it did feel quite good. And for a bum-fun-lovin’ person like myself, this was a brand new feeling. The first orgasm I had with the electrodes positioned this way was phenomenal." - Jon Pressick
  • "No other toy can produce the deep, penetrating sensations that a TENS unit can. As a woman who often has a hard time climaxing, it’s just what I need. I usually use both channels on myself. One electrode pad on either side of my clitoris mimics the sensation of someone sucking it. I set the controls so the waves of electricity pulse like the rhythm of a fast heartbeat. Coupled with an insertable contracting my vaginal muscles, the TENS produces some of the most intense orgasms I’ve ever experienced." - S.M.
  • "Excellent, shipped quickly and performed as intended." - J.F.
