6 Sexy Gift-Giving Tips for the Curious Shopper

Here at Good Vibrations, we get a lot of questions from curious shoppers — whether they’re choosing a vibrator for the first time, or picking out the perfect sex toy for a lover. Here are some frequently asked questions, we hope our answers help your holiday shopping!

1. Do you carry toys that I could buy for a White Elephant or Secret Santa party?  
Sure! We have some fun Gifts & Games for affordable sexy surprises that can spice up a holiday party conversation. We’ve also got a sensuous collection of Body & Massage products that make for a more discreet sexy gift that’s just as exciting. Or, give a Good Vibrations Gift Card and let the recipient choose their pleasure!

2. What should I buy if my partner and I are interested in learning new things?
We often get questions about the “reverse cowgirl” and other sex positions. You can buy a How-to Book that can help you learn exciting new positions for sex. Get in depth with guides in tantric practices, or keep things light and humorous with sex positions of the day cards. There’s Sex Furniture & Positioning Tools, an exciting collection of Sex Toys for Couples that include things like wearable vibrators, cock rings and strap-ons. If you’re 50 shades of curious, our Beginner BDSM Toys are great introductory gifts. The best part about exploring couple’s toys, is that a toy for two is a gift for the both of you!

3. What can I give my Go-Go-Gadget Lover?
Vibrator technology has come a long way! Premium toys such as vibes from We-Vibe and OhMiBod (Music-Powered!) offer amazing features and designs. Check out the Club Vibe 2.Oh and the Ola Touch-Responsive Vibrator for the latest tech-driven buzz.

4. Our love is priceless… but our budget is real. What toys can we afford?
We’re proud to offer affordable vibrators, and have added two new categories for shopping! Check out Holiday Gifts Under $25, and our Vibrators Under $20. You may also find our exclusive Sex Toy Kits a good option as you’ll save a discount when the toys are bundled.

5. Got any gifts for the sex toy connoisseur who has it ALL?
If the person you’re shopping for — who knows, this may be yourself! — has a solid toy collection, you might find something they haven’t seen yet in our New Products category.

6. Starting slow… how can I pick up something sexy that wont freak out my partner?
Good Vibrations is best known for our sex education and for introducing all kinds of people to the potential of sexual pleasure. Many buy their first vibrator or strap-on kit with us! We don’t just want to sell you something — want to make sure you’re making an informed purchase so that the toy you go home with is the best choice for you. You can read our Sex Ed articles for free information about sex and toys before buying your toy. We’ve also got trained sex educators at the phones (800-289-8423) and available on email (customerservice@goodvibes.com) and even via Live Chat Support to help you find the right gift. We’re very helpful so don’t be shy!

But the best advice of all may come from Staff Sexologist Dr. Carol Queen, who says: “If you have NO idea what your partner would like, get a Gift Card — and if at all possible, go shopping together. Make a date of it by adding a nice lunch or dinner, and open those lines of communication in a romantic and frisky way!”

Happy Shopping!
