So let's say you bought your friend a sex toy...

ToyGurl ToyGurl
as a GIFT. It had a very sexual box, not discreet at all. Would you just wrap it up, in the box it came in? Would you take it out of the box and find another (even though this may or may not make your friend think the toy was used)? What would you do? Vote and explain below.

I would leave it as is, unopened, and wrap it up well. I would let her know to open it in private.

I would leave it as-is, unopened, and wrap it up well... but I want to keep it a surprise so I wouldn't tell her to open it in private.

I would take the toy out of the box, and find a gift box suitable for the toy to make it more discreet. I would also tell her to open it in private.

I would leave it as-is, simply because my friend might think the toy was used or unclean.

I would leave it as-is... I want to see the look on people's faces when she pulls out that big black dong!

I would wrap it well, and warn her to open it in private, or simply give it to her privately. If we're friends good enough for me to buy her a sex toy, we're friends good enough to have private time where I can gift her.

I feel the same. I was asking because I bought this toy for a good friend but the packaging is not discreet whatsoever. I worry that she'll think it is used if I open it and replace the box. I just feel like that's the better thing to do though. I know she hates (she's told me this) having sex toy boxes in her garbage because she is big on recycling and neighbors can see that stuff.

I'd just give it to her in the box it comes in, but let her know to open it in private - unless she didn't mind everyone seeing.

I would wrap it up in the original package and give it to the friend in private. Just say hay, I didn't want to embarrass you. I really think most people would appreciate that approach.

I'd keep it in the original box because of safety concerns and all. Then wrap it up exquisitly and then tell her this is best to be opened when you're alone because it's something that you want to reamin private.

I chose other because I don't gift sex toys, but if I did I would give it to her in private in the original packaging and simply wrapped.

I would give it to them in private with the original packaging, obviously that's how the company wants the toy to be displayed, and I don't want them thinking the toy was used.

If the box was not very pretty or good to keep it in for long time. I would find a suitable box or pouch and then gift it out. Some toys only come in a plastic sleeve, that would not be very nice, so I would get something nice!

If I was a good enough friend to be giving a sex toy, it would be silicone, glass or stainless, so there would be no worries about it being used or not. So then it would depend on where I was giving it to them, if it was at a party I would use a nice box. Depending on the guest (Parents, young kids etc.) there I may or may-not tell them to open it in private. If it was just some good friends I would leave it in the original packaging, maybe add a bottle of lube.

If the box wasn't all that discreet I'd give it to her in private. My friend did that for me when she bought me a vibe as a gag gift.

It would really depend on which friend it was...but I would leave it in the box regardless. If they were super shy, I'd find a gift box with a window so they could choose to leave it in a more discreet package if they chose to.

I'd wrap it up well and give it to her in private... With most of my female friends... If it was for a male friend or a sexually open friend, I'd just hand it to them.

a friend just did this for me, and kept it in its original box and just wrapped it, but told me to open it when in private.

If you're really, really sure she'll open it in private, yes.

Otherwise, if she might mess up, that's a difficult thing.

I would either let them know to open it up in private, or give it to them in private. depends on how everything played out.

I'd let her know to open it in private. I might also get a small gift for public opening if it were at a party or something, like a trio-set of truffles or something

I agree. But i kinda like that vague risk of someone else asking what you got them, or shaking the box or something to try finding out...

I would wrap it up nicely, and tell her to open it in private. However, I just gave a friend a toy, in a casual setting and didn't bother wrapping it, just left it in the original packaging. She loved it anyway

I'd wrap it up and tell her to open it up away from prying eyes. Unless I was in the kind of social group where no one would bat an eye, which I frequently am.

Depends on the friend and situation. There is a lot of 'what if's in that situation...

I am getting one of my school friends a vibrator for Christmas (a We-Vibe Salsa) . It will be in the original box, and I will give it to her in private.

I wouldn't mess with the original packaging, because it might have some useful information, and also so that they would know it was new and clean. I would try to pick something that had decent packaging though and wasn't tacky looking. I would wrap it up nicely and give it to them in private. If I had a friend that lived far away I would get it mailed to their house.

At a party? Wrap it in the original box . . and depending on who else is at the party, I'd either let it be a funny surprise (;3) or just take him/her aside and say to open it privately.

Just casually hanging out, or maybe it's their birthday but there's no party? Forget wrapping it, I'll just hand it to them in the box! I expect they'd want to take it out right away and oooh and aaaah over it, knowing my friends

I actually did something like this at my friend's wedding. I bought them a toy very similar to what my husband and I had been using all of the time when we had sex because it had come up in conversation a few weeks earlier at her bachelorette party. I wrapped everything in a really nice bag and put it on the table with the rest of the wedding gifts, but I made sure to pull her aside and let her know which one it was and to open it in private because I knew that they were going to be opening presents in front of her husband's family the next morning.

I'd still do the same thing now if it came up, although I think the next wedding gift I give will probably be some massage stuff and a gift card to here, and then massage stuff for the next two I'm going to next year.

I would keep in the original box therefore it's obvious that it's not used. I would also tell her to open it in private if there isn't a chance to give her the gift alone.

Yeah you definately dont want to make them think its used. I would make sure that they knew it was sealed and give a small basic present infront of everyone else and then give them the other one privately.
