DO get to know the person the adult gift is meant for


Your relationship should stand on “close friends” and even more profound for the sexy gift to be appropriate.

DON'T give adult gifts without knowing the person well

He may consider this gesture awkward, even rude, and you surely don’t want yourself in that situation.


DO give Kegel balls

Fitness obsessed people would gladly seize the opportunity to train those muscles, too - and it’s not so intimate as, let’s say, a plug for anal gaping.

DON'T go too big

Although an ultra large dildo can be a hilarious gag erotic gift, better stick to human sizes and let the person choose a limit-testing device by themselves. Stay within the range of 7 inches.

DO bet on rabbit vibrators as erotic gifts


The classic, the pop-icon, rabbit vibrator is not intimidating and already has a remarkable reputation of orgasm-deliverer. Clit and G-spot stimulation combined is a sure win-win.

DON'T settle for strap-ons

Unless you are looking forward to your friends blushing agonizingly because you intrude with their gender roles. Just don’t.

DO add a right lube to your sexy gift


Be considerate and show care when choosing an erotic gift. Pair silicone vibrators with water-based lubes, and silicone-based lubricants with glass wands.

DON'T give silicone lubricants

Silicone lubricant will make a smart sexy gift if you know for sure that your friend knows the care and maintenance rules. Silicone lubes aren’t compatible with silicone toys, stay mindful of that.

DO grant Power Queens with massagers and wands


Massage wands make remarkable adult gifts. They are equally gorgeous for sore muscles and for that friend of yours that needs a super spur.


DON'T give penis pumps or extensions

A penis enlargement device as an erotic gift? So you just assumed he has problems?

DO go for bright colors and graceful shapes


Some sex toys are purely works of art - they are both a tasteful erotic gift and a total eye candy.

DON'T pick overly expensive or overly cheap products

As you probably wouldn’t give your friend a Ferrari (we just assume you wouldn’t, but if you would - good for you), the same way you shouldn’t bet on luxury vibrators. With cheap vibes as adult gifts, it’s plain simple - it’s just tacky.

DO pick couple's gadgets for a couple


Treat those two lovebirds in your life with the highest compliment of all - praising their intimacy. A vibrator for both would be a thoughtful gift, perceived as if you want to bring them closer together.

DON'T give couple's toys to singles

Do you really want to make a person feel sad because of your gift? If you are adamant about giving a couple’s vibrator, add a partner along in that gift box.

DO add a cleaning solution to your naughty gift


It's like giving batteries with a remote-controlled helicopter - common courtesy.

DON'T give and then ask how it worked out

It would only be appropriate if you gave an adult gift to your significant other, but then you wouldn’t have to ask, right?

DO give discreet vibrators to travelers


You certainly want your erotic gift to serve good, so pick a travel-friendly gadget for those who fly frequently. Consider size, design, the level of buzz and a lock feature.


DON'T go too realistic

We do get the joke about d*ck in the box, but your gift should be fun and pleasant, not shocking.

DO add a discreet masturbator to his toolbox


Let's be real - no man would refuse to blow off some steam from time to time, so give him a helping hand (no pun intended).
