5 tips for giving successful sexy gifts
1. No surprises, please.
Surprise parties are lovely; surprise sex toys may not be quite so well received (pun only partially intended). Don't suddenly produce a toy out of the blue, in the middle of things, with no previous discussion. It's not likely to go over as well in reality, as you might have expected when planning.
If you already share a toy box full of fun, go ahead and pick out something new and exciting to present to your lover. Just remember, it's important to choose something that is already at your partner's comfort and experience level. You can always explore more together, a little at a time.
2. Communication is so sexy.
It's a good idea to already have an idea of what your partner might be into, before you choose an erotic gift. So talk about it, before you go toy shopping (refer to tip number one, above).
Read the hot parts of a novel, or browse through a catalog or website, together and gauge the interest and comfort level of your partner. If you get a positive reaction, that's the right time to venture a statement like, "I have been wanting to try something like that with you. Do you think it's something you would like, too?"
Leading with your interest may make it more comfortable for your partner to venture into new territory, as well. Asking is always more comfortable than springing something new, unannounced. You may have been mulling your sexy gift over for a while, whereas it might be something your partner hasn't considered yet.
3. The thought counts. A lot.
Your biggest sexual organ is your brain; the same is true for your partner. Feeling wanted, desired, and cherished is the biggest turn on. Make sure your partner knows your sexy gift is about how much you want to explore and share together.
Show, and tell, your partner how much you desire him or her, and be clear that your gift is something to enjoy together, not a statement that somehow they aren't satisfying you. The way you introduce new experiences into your love life has a lot to do with how your partner will respond.
4. Presentation is important!
Any gift is nicer when it's presented in a thoughtful and elegant way. Don't just stroll up, plastic bag in hand, and huck it onto the counter while your partner is brushing her teeth. Wrap your sexy gift nicely, or tuck it in a gift bag (don't forget the tissue paper; it makes it look pretty). Include a simple card, with a hand written message. Short, simple, and sweet.
5. Timing is important, too.
Keep it private. Don't present this gift in front of the rest of the family and friends; it's an intimate gift, and should be given in an intimate way.
This gift is all about sharing intimacy and pleasure with your partner. Keep that in mind every step of the way, and you'll both enjoy yourselves more than you thought you could!
