Sure, you can get your partner an espresso machine, bath set, stack of books, jewelry, candles, or fuzzy slippers for the holidays. All of those would probably be very well received. But if you want to take it up a notch this year, why not gift them with something that's a bit sexy, sultry, and—dare we say it—a little naughty? I'm talking about sexy gifts here. Sure, sex-related gifts can sometimes be seen as tacky or perhaps even offensive to some people, but let me tell you, there are some very sophisticated and chic options out there. I've highlighted some below. And you don't even have to give these to a partner. What about the friend who's been feeling themselves lately or wants to embrace their sexy side more? Or maybe you just want to treat yourself to something nice. Go for it.
