The Sex Files with Emily Morse

Sex With Emily’s Holiday Gift Guide

A present given to him for the holidaysI know you’re scrambling to find the perfect gift for the special man or woman in your life. Since I give advice all the time about how to make relationships run smoothly, I can also advise you on how to make your holidays run smoothly with the perfect gift.

One question I’ve been getting a lot recently is, “Emily, can you help me think of something to get my (lover/spouse/crush) for (fill in holiday)?”

And I say, “Of course I can help you!” For all of you who’ve asked, I’ve put together a list of some of my favorite holiday gift ideas. And no, they aren’t all sex toys, although you might see a few sprinkled in here and there. After all, it is a sexy time of year!

So why not get the right gift this year that will ensure good loving all around. 

For her:

  1. The Original Magic Wand

    What girl doesn’t appreciate a brand new vibrator? You can’t go wrong with The Magic WandIt’s a classic, timeless design. And if the powerful vibrations don’t make her orgasm, I don’t know what will. Here are some glowing reviews of the Magic Wand.

    Clearly, I’m a big fan of the Magic Wand

  2. Blind Wine Tasting

    Wine plus anything pretty much equals a good time, but try out this wine plus game. That is the “blind wine tasting” game. I can’t help but imagine the sexy directions this game could take after the 5th or 6th bottle!

  3. Earmuffs


    She can stay warm, look cool and rock these sexy earmuffs for day or night.

    When she takes them off her ears will be warm and waiting for your holiday kisses.

  4. Benefit Cosmetics Little Love Potions

    gift-little-love-potionsWomen go crazy for Benefit Cosmetics and this Little Love Potion gift set has Benefit’s best-sellers all wrapped in one adorable gift pack. Set includes products that will make her eyes sparkle and cheeks flush in that oh-so-sexy kind of way. Plus she can throw it in her purse for those in-between-holiday-party touch ups.

  5. Powerbeats earphones

    These limited edition Beats by Dr. Dre powerbeats headphones are stylish and come in great colors. They’re great for athletes, so it will make her workouts more enjoyable and if she likes to listen to music while she walks to work (and who doesn’t?) they deliver premium sound.

For Him:

  1. Anker Astro Mini Portable Charger

    Last weekend I stayed with a friend up in San Francisco and he had this cool portable charger: Anker Astro Mini Portable Charger. I’d never seen anything like it and it made me want one immediately! This would be a great gift, especially if you’re leaning toward the “less intimate” side of the spectrum. (p.s. this would be great for a woman too! It comes in pink or blue)

  2. Aromatherapy Massage Candlegift-candle

    I highly recommend The Fougere Aromatherapy Massage Candle from Emily &Tony. This one is geared specifically toward men, with a cedar-nutmeg-bourbon scent that always makes me think of a sexy lumberjack. This candle will look beautiful on his nightstand, and it turns into the most luxurious, moisturizing massage oil when lit. Emily&Tony Aromatherapy Massage Candles also come in Creme de Vanille and Coco. (use coupon code sexwithemily to get 20% off your first order)

  3. BBQ Briefcase gift-bbq

    If this sleek BBQ Briefcase equipped with 18 stainless steel utensils doesn’t make him feel like a man, I don’t know what will. He can easily transport it to the park or to a friends house to grill.

  4. Whisky Sipping Stones and Rocking Whisky Glassesgift-whiskey-stones

    Most men love whisky, or at least they pretend to as they sip their scotch. These amazing Whisky Sipping Stones will keep his drink cold without having to water it down with ice, while the Rocking Whisky Glasses will rock but won’t knock over. He is set for a leisurely, pain-free drinking session (until tomorrow’s hang-over).

  5. Pebble Smartwatchgift-pebble

    Activity-trackers are the latest fitness fad, and you know he’s been talking about getting back to the gym in the new year. Plus, the Pebble Smartwatch is one of Kickstarter’s most successful startups and one of the best activity-trackers out there, and its new version has improved its software to work better on iOS and Android.

Buy your gifts then get out there and celebrate. Have some sex too, apparently everyone else is! And remember, if you’re thoughtful about who you’re buying for and err on the side of intimacy, you’ll do fine. After all, would you rather be remembered for giving someone a pair of socks or for peeling them off?

Happy shopping!
