The Taboo Holiday Gift Guide

Happy holidays! Are you pulling your hair out yet? We all want to give the perfect gift. No one wants a repeat of last year’s six pack of soap that’s still sitting in queue in her bathroom or the generic gift card that makes it look like you didn’t actually agonize over a great idea. Even worse are the go-to gimmicks, the singing fish or Santa Snuggie you purchased in bulk during a holiday meltdown so severe a pet rock would have felt innovative.

This time of year every industry is claiming their product is the best–a sure fire shortcut to a warm smile, a big hug, and a boat load of holiday cheer. I’ve got nothing negative to say about peddlers of jewelry, candles, toolboxes, or TVs, but I’m pretty sure sex has all those guys beat.

Personally, I think of Taboo as one stop holiday shopping. A gift card for your buddy, a toy for your GOOD buddy, bath salts for your mom, a Taboo Girls Calendar for your dad, and of course something intimate for the special person in your life. But, if you think your mom would prefer a blender, I trust you. You know her better than I do.

If you are considering shopping Taboo this holiday season, I’ve prepared a little guide to help you navigate through our endless product and ensure your gift is sweet, clever, sexy, and fun. Without further ado, I present the best of the best for this special season.

Glass Candy Canes


I know, they’ve been around for a few years now, but seriously, these things have me tickled pink. They’re glass dildos, if you didn’t catch that, so they retain temperature, are ultra-hygienic, etc., etc., etc. But also they look like candy canes! Really pretty candy canes! If your tree is sturdy enough, you could store it hanging from a branch. You could also suck on it, which would be great for a laugh as well as super hot. These things have seriously found the sweet spot, hitting the mark for both novelty entertainment and sexual satisfaction.

Holiday Scented Massage Candles


Dipping into the pleasantly warm wax of a slow burning soy candle and massaging it onto your partner’s back, belly, thighs, and boobs is a thing you should be doing every Saturday. Unfortunately, most of us require a holiday as a reminder to indulge and winter is the very best time. Earthly Body can perfect your experience with their trio of holiday scents. Single 6.8 oz candles are available, or try all three in a cute and convenient gift bag!

Crazy Girl Arousal Oils


With names like Make Merry Nipple ArousalSanta’s Helper Clitoral Arousal, and Kandi His Kane Oral Sex Gel, these guys practically jump into stockings on their own. They’re sure to win a warm smile, and the aforementioned hug and holiday cheer. But also, they work. Crazy Girl’s mint arousal gel is one of my year-round favorites. With tingle and great taste, these oils honestly make it as good to give as it is to receive.

Coupon Books


You know what’s basically as flexible as a Visa gift card but way more fun? A packet of IOUs for things like mid-day quickies, hot head, and getting tied to the bed with Christmas lights. I can’t think of a single stocking stuffer more desirable than an offer of on-call intimacy. Of course, the real value lies in the fun ways you’ll connect in the coming year. That is, if your partner can resist redeeming them all in one night.

Coochy Creme Midnight Snowflake


For the first time, America’s favorite intimate shave cream has a seasonal scent. It’s called midnight snowflake, which brings to my mind the girl next door donning a little bedroom leather and instigating a highly satisfying and sensual degree of kink, all with zero razor burn. It’s got me as excited as a Gingerbread latte. Even if you don’t share my excessive enthusiasm, it’s a fun and functional gift for the conscientious lady on your list.

Holiday Lingerie


Whether you go for full on Sexy Santa role play, you’re wrapping yourself in a bow, or you just want something fun and festive to heat up the holiday, Taboo’s got you (just barely) covered. Let her know she still turns you on with a pretty lace babydoll, spice things up with red crotchless panties, or put together a complete look with a corset, hosiery and shoes. We have the hottest holiday styles and the Taboo Girls are here to help you out!

We-Vibe 4+


Since its inception, We-Vibe has been the number one couple’s vibrator. Its flexible U-shape simultaneously offers g-spot and clitoral stimulation. It’s designed to be worn during intercourse. Its latest version works with an app that allows your parter to control the vibration from anywhere in the world. You can create custom vibration patterns and manipulate the intensity with a touch of the screen. The We-Vibe 4+ not only represents the future of sex toys, it’s an orgasmic experience you can truly share.

Topping our list is the 2016 Taboo Girls Calendar. It’s a great way to support your local ladies (all Taboo employees!) and we believe this is our best calendar yet! Taboo gift cards are available in any amount and are perfect for lovers, friends, co-workers, and office parties alike. Happy Holidays! We can’t wait to see you soon!

Alison Miller's dream to become a writer was born when she won her first Young Author's Contest. Her desire to masturbate professionally came later, and intensified after a switch from a focus on English to a major in Fashion Merchandising led to the opening of Taboo in 2002. Taboo is a small chain of nationally acclaimed adult boutiques located in Richmond, Virginia. Taboo won StoreErotica's Boutique of the Year in 2009 and has carried the title of Style Weekly's Best Adult Novelty Store five years in a row.

Taboo is female owned and operated and focuses on providing a comprehensive selection of toys, lubricants, DVDs, and lingerie to all patrons. We believe there is a toy--or 20--for everyone, and that sexuality should be unashamedly embraced.
