Sensual holiday gifts for that special someone

With a love interest, socks just won’t cut it when it comes to holiday gift-giving; give a
present that shows you consider them a sex god/goddess. But don’t give something that’s obviously a present to yourself, like polyester butt-floss lingerie that may look good to you but feels terribly uncomfortable to the person you’re supposed to be pampering. Make sure the present you’re giving is appropriate to the person. Here’s a guide to sexy gifts for specific types:

» For the art-appreciator: The beautiful hardcover photography book, “LoveSong: The Erotic Photographs of Arnold Skolnick” (available at Coco de Mer).

» For the sensualist: JimmyJane.com’s pristine collection of ergonomic massage accessories all in classic white.

» For the hippy feminist: Anything — jewelry, art, pillows — that celebrates the female form from the Vulva Love Lovely store on Etsy.com.

» For the quiet kinkster: Lelo.com’s beautiful new line of sensual accessories, including deep red suede cuffs and silk blindfolds.

» For the nature-lover: TheBodyDeli.com’s extensive line of body products that incorporate raw, fresh, natural and organic ingredients — including fresh fruit and vegetables, yogurt, amino acids and all-natural plant oils.

» For the person who has everything: The $7,000 chess set that doubles as 32 different love toys, designed by Aruliden for Kiki de Montparnasse.
