Shopping for your best friend is all about finding the ideal present that is thoughtful, enjoyable, and fun. Luckily, sex toys are the gift that just keeps giving...and giving….and giving! In fact, according to a survey of 2,000 LELO customers, 65% of women under 35 received their first sex toy from a female friend as a present! We all want the best for our friends and what says “we love you”, more than a great orgasm?
When the holiday season becomes a frenzy, give the gift of self-care with the perfect sex toy or accessory that matches their personality and is sure to bring them pleasure all year long. A few things to keep in mind first:
- Do they actually want a sex toy? Yes, even with our friends, it’s very important to express consent! If you have a newer friendship, or you two have never spoken about pleasure before, this could be a hit or miss situation. That being said, if you have the type of relationship where you speak openly about pleasure and they’ve even dropped hints, there is a much clearer runway.
- Go shopping together! To be entirely sure you’re getting exactly what they want, why not experience the fun of exploration, with them. If that’s not possible, do a virtual shop at www.loversstores.com
- Unsure? Buy them a gift card! If you have trouble deciding which toy is right, or you’re unsure of what things your friend is into, why not let them choose? Gift cards are great for any occasion and are available in all 42 of our retail stores!
