Skirt Club’s Holiday Gift Guide 2019
The best gift ideas for her - or for yourself!
Between finishing up all of those last minute work demands, rushing around holiday parties, checking off your presents list (and sticking to that pesky budget), travelling to see family, getting the house ready to receive guests, all while maintaining your sanity...this time of year can be stressful for even the most organised of us.
Slow down, sweetie. Press pause on buying presents for friends and family, just for a minute, and take a moment to celebrate yourself and how much you’ve accomplished this year. Practicing a little bit of self-love is one of the best things that you can do for your wellbeing. So, this Christmas take the time to indulge in yourself. You deserve it.
To make things simple, we’ve searched high and low to compile this self-pleasure guide with the best gift ideas, so you can ho-ho-hoe your way into the New Year!
Buy in whatever form you deem necessary to stimulate your pleasure palate. Hot chocolate. Chocolate bars. Melted chocolate on fruit or marshmallows. You know it. Try Hotel Chocolat’s All Dark Vegan Chocolate Hamper Collection of sensual delights.
Dark chocolate is known to have sexual benefits as it stimulates the release of dopamine in the body, giving you a burst of arousal. Plus vegan-friendly chocolates are good for the planet - and what’s more sexy than pleasing mother nature?
2. Massage Candle
Two birds, one stone. Dim the lights, and get heated with a candle that not only diffuses aromatic fragrances, but the melted wax can be used as a massage oil.
Dip into sweet serenity and cover yourself in the sensuous warmth of this Ylang Ylang soy candle by The Secret Scent Society. Use light and deep touch to ease out any tension from your muscles and stimulate arousal over your nipples and breasts. Ylang Ylang is commonly used in aromatherapy for helping with low libido, as it supports the circulatory system. The ingredients in this candle also include vitamin E, which is good for the immune system.
3. Silky Underwear
Once you are utterly moisturised, slip into something silky. Soft textured underwear or pyjamas can feel so luxurious. Box Of Intimates has you totally covered with this ethical and sensual lingerie subscription box. You can pick from the “nice” or “naughty” box this Christmas… depending on what list you ought to be on. For the most haute couture level of luxury, Luna Mae is the world leading bespoke lingerie specialist. Based in Belgravia, request an appointment for measurements and custom made silky deliciousness.
Try Sony’s noise cancelling headphones for an immersive audio-erotica evening to yourself...Just make sure no one will barge into your room unannounced!
Apps such as Ferly, Emjoy, Dipsea, and Tease Me offer a range of sexual wellbeing audio guides and erotic storytelling for you to get into the mood. Currently offered at half price, the Sony WH-XB9ooN headphones have comfy padding for your head and ears - and offer noise cancellation to tune out the world and tune into yourself.
5. Nipple Clamps
If you enjoy nipple stimulation, you’ll love nipple clamps. They can be adjusted to suit your desires. Nipples are commonly erogenous for people, and studies have found they are erotically linked to the genitals during stimulation - whereby some people experience nipple-induced orgasms.
Sportsheets Sincerely have a range of luscious nipple toys, from weighted jewelled clamps, to a pearl chain, or fluffy pom poms. Try vibration clamps to amp up the sensation.
6. Silicone-based Lube
For a velvety experience during masturbation, silicone lubricant is an absolute delight. However, if you plan on using a silicone-based toy switch to water-based lubes. Sliquid Naturals Silver is a long-lasting and waterproof silicone-based lube, great for enjoying pleasure in the shower, and it’s made from natural ingredients that are “uniquely blended to enhance your body’s own natural lubrication.
7. Glass Dildo
Take a peek at Unbound’s Gem and Stellar glass dildos. This gorgeous self-pleasure gift doesn’t just feel good, but also works as a great decoration or paper weight.
8. Suction Vibrator
Want to add even more self-pleasure? Reach new heights of climactic sensation with some clitoral suction. Satisfyer and Womanizer are the leading companies making this type of toy. The technology is designed to pull the orgasm out from your body - maybe even multiple, if you’re lucky! Combine it with the glass dildo for a combined G Spot and clitoral orgasm. Or try the Womanizer Duo that has an internal arm with the suction technology.
