So, you've just started dating someone new and you already want to shower them with gifts, but you're not sure what to get. We've all been there! Sometimes it can be tough to know which gifts will make your new lover feel special... and which gifts might make them say, "no, but thanks anyway!" Well, don't sweat it — this guide is here to help.
Keep reading to learn how to properly give intimate gifts to your new lover, and take a look at my top 15 favorite intimate gifts to make your partner feel special. Let's get started!
What Is The Best Gift For My New Lover?
Giving your new lover the perfect gift can be tough because, well, you haven't been together very long! That's why you must run a little recon and do some research before you start shopping.
Ask questions about their interests, specific movies and music they like, and whether or not they like surprises (some people really don't). The more information you collect, the better equipped you will be to buy the perfect present.
If you're shopping for intimate gifts for your new lover, it's best to have a conversation ahead of time about sexual and physical intimacy. Find out if there are any pleasure products they've always wanted to try.
Chances are, you have some common interests when it comes to sexual intimacy, so take some time to have open and honest conversation! Then, based on what you've learned, start browsing adult products and intimate gifts.
That said, you might want to start slow when it comes to sex toys. Unless your partner specifically asks for an extra-large dildo or set of steel handcuffs, it's best to gift adult products that are great for beginners. You don't want their intimate gift to make them feel pressured to explore territory they aren't familiar or comfortable with yet.
Vibrators and masturbation toys are usually a safe bet when it comes to intimate gifting as they're among the most popular pleasure products on the market. But, again, make sure that this okay ahead of time.
If your partner isn't comfortable being gifted a sex toy, try sexy accessories or sex education literature instead! Body jewelry, lingerie, sensual bath and body products, and Sex Ed books are great examples of intimate gifts that are not overtly sexual.
On the other hand, your partner might be very interested in swapping sex toys for birthdays, holidays, and days you feel extra special. If so, you might be wondering, "what are the best new relationship gifts when it comes to adult products?" Well, keep reading — I'll show you!
