Here's one trend that won't go away!
2013 was another huge year for bondage, with sales of blindfolds, spankers and handcuffs remaining strong.
Britney Spears even whipped out an item from our Fifty Shades of Grey Official Pleasure Collection in her new music video, and Bettie Page fans have been treated to a luxury collection inspired by the lady herself.
In Autumn we introduced a dedicated bondage section to make shopping for whips, rope and restraints even easier.
Which leads us to…
2. Fifty Shades of Grey (Again!)
After much speculation and gossip throughout the year, the final cast members were finally announced for the Fifty Shades of Grey movie adaption, with filming having already begun.
The Fifty Shades fever is still alive and kicking, with the Official Pleasure Collection designed by Lovehoney being expanded to include pharmacy products, in addition to sex toys and bondage gear.
New additions to the E L James approved collection, include items infused with Christian Grey's signature scent, like the Sensual Touch Massage Oil (left, £9.99).

To say thank you for all your hard work every month we select our favourite user-uploaded review to win £100 to spend at Lovehoney - not bad eh?
This month's winner reviewed the Bedtime 10 Function Vibrating Butt Plug (£13.99) and was particularly informative for those new to anal play, which we loved!
"I finally unboxed it and was immediately taken aback by its size. Although I'd seen the pictures and read the specifications, it seems a lot bigger and scarier when you're holding it in your hands wondering how on earth it'll fit. I'm happy to report, however, that with a little lube it slides right in, and sits fairly comfortably, even for a complete novice like myself."

The Lovehoney Mains Powered Deluxe Magic Wand is our best-selling vibrator, and this year has overtaken rabbit vibrators as the nation's favourite sex toy.
It's become a hugely popular gift between both lovers and friends, and with Christmas fast approaching we're super-excited to unveil this scrumptious luxury gift set!
The much-loved Magic Wand has undergone a festive Lovehoney makeover and is now covered top to toe in our signature purple, right down to the cord and plug.
The special edition gift set also comes with a G-spot wand attachment for oodles of turbo-powered fun.
To complete the perfect present, these sexy treats come in a lockable case with mesh pockets and elasticated holding straps. It's even made from special antibacterial material to keep your goodies clean and safe.
It's all topped off with a heart-shaped padlock to keep it safe from prying eyes. Practically perfect in every way!
Just when you thought it couldn't get any better, the sex toy aficionados at We-Vibe have brought out a brand spanking new version of their classic couples vibrator.
Worn inside the vagina during sex, the We-Vibe is a genius design which delivers vibrations to the G-spot and clitoris as well as his penis for an all-round amazing blended orgasm experience.
If you have seen (or own) the We-Vibe 2 or 3, you'll notice that as well as being 30% less bulky, the We-Vibe 4 has a flatter internal arm with a built-in ridge to rest against the pelvic bone (and G-spot), reducing the amount of movement during play.
It's smaller, smoother to the touch and easier to control, making it a great toy for both public and private play. It's also USB rechargeable!
If you've never tried a couples vibrator, now is the time. Plus, with Lovehoney's great 1 year no-quibbles returns policy, what have you got to lose?
They say geek is chic, and if the new Star Wars vibrator posters currently circulating the web are anything to go by, they're definitely right!
The posters show a number of vibrators from luxury brand Lelo that have received a rather dashing makeover - to resemble characters from the movie francise Star Wars.
Unfortunately, this isn't a real range - the fake posters were created by Tumblr user Balazs Sarmai.
Sarmai found fame a few months with his Avengers-inspired sex toy posters (we blogged about them here), which featured products like Lelo Elise 2, the Stronic Eins from Fun Factory and the Lovers Premium Rabbit Vibe.
This time, however, he's chosen to transformed some of our favourite Lelo vibrators into Star Wars sex toys with the use of clever photo editing - including the Gigi 2 Luxury G-Spot Vibrator (£89.99), Alia Luxury Waterproof Massager (£54.99), Ida Rechargeable Remote Control Massager (£112.49) and, of course, the famous Lelo Smart Wand Vibrator (£83.99).
Read on to see the rest of the posters, and make sure to tell us which is your favourite in the comments.
What a month for user-uploaded reviews! With lots of fun new products appearing in October, and a great back catalogue of customer favourites being reviewed, it was tricky to pick just one winner of our Review of the Month competition.
In the end, we chose Cornish89's sincere review of the brand new Sqweel Go USB Rechargeable Oral Sex Simulator (£39.99) as winner, and we're delighted to award her £100 to spend at Lovehoney.
We loved her change from sceptic to full-blown convert:
"I applied lube to myself and started off on the slowest speed which was a nice warm up. I then sped it up, I was surprised to feel close to orgasm on the second setting and pretty shocked to have an orgasm when I put it on the fastest speed! The Sqweel Go has definitely been added to my very short list of items that I can use solo and know I'll achieve orgasm!"

After years of showing you the best new sex toys on Lovehoney TV, our very own Annabelle Knight has released her first range of vibrators!
Using her top notch knowledge of everything sexy, Annabelle's new range of couple-friendly sex toys includes a classic vibrator, a G-spot vibe, a love egg and even stylish vibrating knickers.
If you've seen the Lovehoney documentary More Sex Please, We're British, you'll know that Annabelle has been eager to share her own range of pleasure objects with the world for a long time.
"I adore my new collection of toys! They're sexy, stylish and elegant, and won't break the bank. I've tried to provide something for everyone and spent many an hour fretting over the design and functions to make sure you get the best from them!" - Annabelle
Designed with style and function in mind, Annabelle's collection features ergonomic vibrators with a smooth texture for sensual pleasure.
Ms Knight's familiarity of sex toys clearly came in handy when it came to designing the products: "When coming up with the ideas for the toys I took my inspiration from you! They're for the everywoman by the everywoman."
