We know the holidays aren’t exactly sexy, but once you’ve maxed out your credit cards on holiday shopping, spent some time tolerating your least favorite family members and reached listening capacity for “Let It Snow,” you deserve to put up your feet and take a load off (literally).

Butter Wellness Personal Massager
Butter Wellness is going where not many sexual wellness brands have gone before — vibrators for men. You, a man, might be wondering, how do I use (and receive pleasure from) a device that looks like it was designed for a vulva? Well, Butter’s sleek-looking personal massager targets the perineum (that’d be the area between the anus and the scrotum), in order to stimulate the male G-sport (the prostate). As the brand notes, “no insertion is required to experience the goods.”
This September, Maude launched “Band,” the brand’s first device designed specifically with partnered use in mind. At $52, it’s a nice middle-of-the-road price point if you’re looking for a simple, yet functional ring. It might not be as high-tech as some vibrating couples’ rings on the market, but Band remains an elevated and approachable device, ideal for couples looking to introduce new, heightened sensations into the bedroom.
Foria Awaken + Lube Bundle
Foria offers a collection of 100% plant-based and organic hemp products for intimacy and everyday well-being. The Awaken Arousal Oil is the brand’s best-seller — a topical made to enhance pleasure and help ease discomfort, especially for those with pelvic and genital pain conditions. And now you can bundle the beloved oil with Foria’s Intimacy Natural Lubricant with CBD, a clean-feeling lube that’s become a staple in our own bedrooms.
Ensure only you have access to your treasure trove of sex toys with Trova’s smart safe. This particular model is the brand’s most substantial biometric-safe and will keep your valuables discreet and safe from any kids or guests roaming around your household. The wifi-enabled safe also provides you with real-time notifications that get sent directly to your phone.
Unbound Bit Silicone Gag Bar
For those who aren’t fans of ball gags but still want something to sink their teeth into during restraint play, Unbound’s silicone gag bar with velvety ribbon ties is perfect for both beginners and experts alike.
Bloomi Indulge Double-Sided Vibrator
This simple yet powerful duel-sided vibe from Bloomi — a BIPOC- and sexologist-led wellness brand specializing in clean intimacy products — is versatile enough for solo and partner play.
Sense The Intimate Bundle
Safe sex can still be super sexy. This set of essentials includes a water-based lube, latex condoms and post-coital cleanup wipes (a necessity FYI).
Cake Oral Stroker
This low-cost silicoine stroker sits at the base of the penis during oral sex. Basically, you’ll receive deep throat-like blow jobs without your partner feeling discomfort. A win-win.
BDSM Leather Handcuffs
Cheap handcuffs are a dime a dozen. Why not splurge on something long-lasting and much more classy-looking and feeling, like these handcrafted cuffs made from full grain Italian leather.
Lelo Soraya Beads
This latest offering from Lelo was created with increasing anal pleasure for beginners in mind. The luxe anal massager features eight powerful settings and a cascading design with four gradually increasing sized beads for maximum comfort. Coolest part is the device implements revoltionary Bow-Motion tech that’s “inspired by the masterful movements of violin players,” so the beads “work in harmony to create a thrusting-like sensation without the thrusting motion.”
A more affordable option for her to store her stash of vibrators lubricants and other goodies, Dame’s super cute zippable pouch includes inner pockets and elastics to keep toys, cables and more organized.

And a cost-effective pouch for you. Champ’s $15 Dopp kit keeps condoms, lube and more safely secure at home or on the go.
