Although generous to a fault, Santa draws the line at sexy gifts, leaving it up to you to cross 'sex toy' off your husband or boyfriend's Christmas list.
Undoubtedly your partner's perfect stroker, love ring or prostate massager exists somewhere within Lovehoney's toy trove. But with so many to choose from and limited alone time for clandestine purchasing, it's important to shop smart. That's why we've created this quiz!
A mere seven questions will funnel you from magnitudinous multiple choices to a single perfect product. Each of the potential recommended gifts are top-rated toys so as to minimise the chances of a poor choice.
Just be careful your lover doesn't already have the recommended item. If they do, simply give the quiz another go with a few altered answers.
You spend hours in the gym trying to improve your stamina and physique, so isn't it time you showed the same attention to your penis?
With a strapline like 'become better', you'd be forgiven for thinking this was some kind of self-help book, but the Blewit Pleasure + Performance Masturbator is your one-way ticket to epic sex for you and your partner.
Blewit's twisted octagon shape creates an ergonomic fit for both left and right-handed users and hands of all sizes.
The sleeve is multitextured for enhanced stimulation and its quickflip suction control and air tight seal creates a vacuum-like suction. You can even adjust the tightness!
You're probably wondering how masturbation can help your partner too (although I'm sure you don't need any excuse). Keep reading and all will be revealed...

Sex toys are emotionally charged gifts, conveying how intimately you know your lover’s tastes and desires, and thus sex toy gifts at Christmas can be a tricky business.
Get it right and you’ll be showered with praise, compassion, and most of all, sex, while a moment’s misjudgement can cause embarrassment or even offence.
Never ones to stand idly by while their fellow humans suffer solo, we’ve created this helpful quiz to help you come up trumps with the perfect toy for your lady.
Seven questions will expertly steer you through the choppy storms of confusion to the beachy inlet of understanding, with a perfect pleasure purchase revealed at the end.
There are eight products that could be potentially turned up by our diagnostic algorithm.
Each one is a top-ranking best-seller on the Lovehoney site, minimising the likelihood of a poor pick. Just make sure your lover doesn’t already have one and you’re a shoo-in.
Each month we choose our favourite new sex toy review (from our growing database of over 153,000!) to win a special £100 Lovehoney gift card. This month's winner delievered a champion review that was not only helpful but amusing - it's a perfect 10 from us! Get a taste from the below extract:
"And here we are at the start of the Kegel Olympics 2015. First up, representing Great Britain, is Caliente. She's a intermediate kegel exerciser, but at 36 she will have her age against her in this competition. Her previous personal best was with beginner jiggle balls at a featherweight of only 56g. She smashed the European beginner's record by easily holding them in all day without even feeling them move. But is she really ready for the heavyweight division? Today we're going to find out as she attempts the biggest challenge of her kegel career, the Fifty Shades of Grey Inner Goddess Silver Pleasure Balls, weighing in at a massive 221g. Can she lift these advanced balls and manage to complete the full snatch, clean and jerk?" Read the full review.

If sex toys are like buses, then the pre-Christmas period is the stop where all three are coming at once.
We got a sniff of the upcoming festive rush last week, when two of the most highly anticipated sex toys came into Lovehoney HQ to be measured, profiled, photographed and generally pampered before going live on the site.
Both releases are from highly reputed companies. With one designed for clitoral use and the other as a male toy, everybody wins!
Grab one for yourself and be the first on the innovative pleasure bandwagon, or start stockpiling gifts for Crimbo and tuck one away for your lover (if you can wait that long to give it to them).
With the popularity of Fifty Shades of Grey showing no signs of abating, and pioneering kinksters like Bettie Page soaring back into the limelight, couples all over the globe are opening their minds (and bedrooms) to bondage.
Couples often ask us how they can inject some kinky fun into their bedroom adventures while maintaining intimacy and romance. Understandably, for some couples, the hard leather and steel look just doesn't do it for them.
Realising that there's still quite a big jump in the product market from 'no bondage experience' to 'beginner's bondage', as well as a tendency for fetish styling to be a bit intimidating (even if the products themselves aren't) we decided to do something about it.
We're very happy to announce our new bondage brand, 'Tease by Lovehoney'; a range of sensual bondage products made from inviting materials and designed for absolutely anyone to use.
So whether you're new to bondage, or know your stuff but want to bring the romance back, read on to discover why Tease by Lovehoney is a perfect addition to your toy box.
Lovehoney Community member Shadow Collector is one very lucky lady. Not only did she receive a Secret Wishlist Present from an anonymous forum friend, but we've also chosen the review she wrote of it as our Review of the Month. The prize? £100 to spend at Lovehoney!
We loved her in-depth review of the Icicles No 24 Tentacle Glass Dildo. She even pointed out features we hadn't noticed, like the perineum stimulation offered by the textured nubs:
"The raised glass nodules provide the kind of feelings that, previous to this toy, I only have imagined existed. There is nothing that can compare to the cool, firm feel of glass. Furthermore, the handle’s shaped so that with every thrust it’ll also tickle the anus."
"To the amazing person who blessed me with the Icicles No. 24, thank you. You've changed my outlook on sex toys for the better, and it was already pretty darn positive. I love this piece and any texture aficionados will love it as well."

It takes a lot to raise our eyebrows here at Lovehoney HQ. We've had sex selfie sticks and vibrating diamonds arrive on our desks in the last few months alone, so it's fair to say our standards are high. But we're all loving this innovative new product that puts the variety back into sex.
Introducing Ooh by Je Joue - or to put it another way, pick 'n' mix sex toys! Ever love the vibrations on one of your toys but fancy the shape of another? The Ooh lets you pick your favourite attachment and add the super-powerful vibrating motor for a mix-and-match made in heaven. You can choose from clitoral attachment, classic vibrator shape or cock ring, or save by picking the Pleasure Kit.
We love the versatility the system offers, and it delivers on discretion and power too. The USB-powered motor offers 3 speeds and 2 patterns and 2 hours of play with every charge.
Like what you hear? Pick up the Ooh by Je Joue pleasure system exclusively from Lovehoney now, or discover more below.
