Treat your Partner to a Saucy Present this Christmas

With Christmas fast approaching, husbands, wives, boyfriends and girlfriends across the nation are looking for an extra special gift to give their loved one. London erotic store Sh! has the perfect alternative to the standard winter woollies, perfume, festive jumpers and mountains of chocolate. Swap the predictable gifts for something your partner will really enjoy – an erotic plaything!

The online emporium and flagship Hoxton Square store has an abundance of unique Christmas gift ideas for men and women of all sexualities. From vibrators and BDSM toys to sexy lingerie, shoppers can find their partners a whole new world of playthings to experiment with.

Renee Denyer, the award-winning Sh! Store Manager, says, “When Christmas comes around you can find yourself receiving the same old gifts every year – especially if you’re in a long term relationship. Really excite your partner this Christmas with a pleasurable gift they can enjoy in the bedroom…no doubt it will act as a present for you too.”

To help people with their shopping experience, the sexperts at Sh! have come up with a range of tips for buying an erotic gift. When it comes to choosing a saucy present it’s important to get it right, so Sh! presents the do’s and don’ts of buying an erotic plaything for the woman in your life for Christmas:

Do: Think about it! Choose the style of plaything you believe she would choose for herself. 

Don’t: Impose your own fantasy. If it’s not her thing, this is not the time to present her with a surprise butt plug.

Do: Convey she’s worth it. Even if it’s a just simple small vibrator, ensure its good quality.

Don’t: Try to impress with size. The saying "go big or go home" doesn't apply to sex toys. Ever.

Do: Make it feel special. Choose toys packaged in their own gift box or create your own.

Don’t: Give toys in clam-shell packaging – spells CHEAP!

Do: Include essentials like batteries/lube. If it’s rechargeable – charge it up so you can play straight away!

Don’t: Leave the batteries in – everybody wants to feel their toy is box-fresh

Do: Give small bullet vibes as pressies in situations where everyone gets one - at a girls get-together, for instance – It’s a brilliant way to ensure a shy friend gets to try the thrill of the buzz, without feeling singled-out.

Don’t: Give a sex toy as a Secret Santa with the sole purpose of embarrassing – it’s not cool.

Do: Give ‘girl-friend’ gifts in a private, romantic setting.

Don’t: Give at a family gathering. As much as her family want to see how much you cherish her, they don't need to see her with a vibrator and bottle of lube, nor you with a glint in your eye…
