When you think of advent calendars, you tend to think of the cute little cardboard ones you buy for a school fundraiser that deliver some semi-okay chocolate or tiny plastic toys that will hurt to step on for 25 days leading up to Christmas. We love those for what they are but as grown-ass adult people, we deserve a grown-ass adult answer to the countdown calendar.
Luckily, sex toy advent calendars exist. And they are just as sweet as the semi-okay chocolate — if not sweeter.
If you’re looking for a romantic gift for you and your lover to enjoy during the holiday season (or just because!), you’ll want to pick up one of these bad boys. The concept is still the same, you get a set amount of surprises to unbox for however many days, each one giving you a chance to inject a bit of excitement and sensuality into your day. Maybe you want to count down to an anniversary or a special date night or you just want to liven up the chilly boring winter months (a whole mood, honestly) — these gift boxes will totally help you with those goals.
And it used to be that there was one or two different boxes floating around each holiday seaso but now there’s quite a few to choose from depending on your tastes, proclivities and sexual wellness brand loyalty.
Read on for a few of our favorites we’ve spotted in the wild and how to score ’em.
