A Sleigh-ful of Gift Ideas for Your Spouse

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday! But I’m figuring by the time you read this post, you will have already consumed all the turkey, dressing, and cranberry sauce you can handle — plus a little more. You will have spent time with friends and family talking about everything you have to be thankful for, or perhaps discussed the details of your aunt Josephine’s hip surgery or argued all the particulars of your contrasting political views. (I’m hoping it wasn’t that last one.) And you’ve prayed to God telling him how grateful you are for the blessings in your life, even while they are disappointments as well.

It’s a day for even us natural pessimists to be Glass Half Full people.

And tomorrow begins the Wallet Half Empty season. Also known as Christmas! ūüôā

For those who are already finished with their Christmas shopping, you probably don’t need to read any more of this post and we sorta don’t like you anyway. You give us a case of envy the size of our Thanksgiving turkey. (Just kidding.)

But for the rest of us — who start our shopping on¬†Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday, or any other cleverly named days inviting you to spend money — I wanted to give you a single place to access all of my gift ideas.

10 Sexy Stocking Stuffers for Your Husband

Of course, you could always pick up a copy of¬†Hot, Holy, and Humorous: Sex in Marriage by God’s Design! It’s aimed at wives, but there are many tips couples can read about and give a try. Indeed, plenty of husbands would love it if you tuck that book under the tree, open it together on Christmas Eve, and then promise your hubby you’ll read the book and prioritize sexual intimacy in the coming year.

You probably have a friend or family member who could use this book as well. And you could even match it with a couple of other marriage books to show your support for their whole marriage.

Stay safe on the roads and in stores. And enjoy shopping this weekend, this season, or — for those who wait until the last-minute — Christmas Eve.

10 Sexy, Manly Items for Your Hubby’s Christmas Stocking

This holiday season, something odd happened: My 10 Sexy Stocking Stuffers for Your Husband post from last year seemed to go viral on Pinterest. I take away two lessons from that: (1) Plenty of wives want to get their husbands something intimate for Christmas; and (2) We like getting more ideas!

So here we go. Once again I combed the stores, the Internet, and my ever-fertile-and-sometimes-crazy imagination and came up with this list of sexy, manly stuff for hubbies for Christmas.

Ride Lube. Forget all those personal lubricants with words like¬†silk and¬†sensual¬†and¬†passion in the name. Your man doesn’t need all that frou-frou fluff. Just give him Ride Dude Lube, made by Sliquid (one of my favorite brands, by¬†the way). From ingredients to packaging, this lubricant is designed¬†for the manly man in your life. As the advertisement says, “Formulated with the highest quality ingredients, and branded with imagery any cowboy will want to get behind, Ride Dude Lube is here to help you Saddle Up!” Yee-haw.

Bacon Lube. Of course, if flavored lubricant is your man’s thing, don’t get your hubby something fruit-flavored. He doesn’t want to taste strawberry or tutti-frutti; not when he could instead taste bacon. While sex and pork don’t really go together in¬†my mind, far be it from me to deprive married couples of this unique experience. If bacon is your thing, go for it. And if you’re saying to yourself when pigs fly, remember this is about¬†when pigs fry. (An apology¬†to the vegetarians for that, but I promise no pigs were harmed in the making of that¬†joke or the lube.)

Buck Naked Underwear. It’s just fun to say, isn’t it? “Buck naked”? (Or maybe that’s just the Texan in me coming out.) But this underwear for men is moisture-wicking and boasts: “No pinch, no stink, no sweat. Feels like you aren’t wearing any underwear at all.” Well, then… There are even ones called “Date Night Boxers.” Whatever that means.

Buck Naked Underwear

Body Groomer. Come on! Be honest: Some husbands out there “manscape.” Maybe it’s because he got a callback on his audition for the next¬†Planet of the Apes film simply¬†based on his looks, or because he — or you — like a cleaner area to work with when you’re intimately engaged. But if your hubby’s going to do any trimming¬†down there, he shouldn’t just grab his regular old razor. As a man, he knows how important it is to have the right tool for the job! For example, this Braun cruZer body groomer is safe for all body areas and can be used wet or dry.

Man Candle. Candlelight is romantic, sensual, intimacy-welcoming. And being a woman, I’m aware of the variety of candle brands and scents out there, with everything from vanilla to chocolate chip¬†cookies to fresh cut roses. But do men really want their bedroom smelling like a kitchen or a floral garden? Thankfully, Candle Delirium has you covered with its Men Candles and fragrances¬†like Leather & Tobacco, Havana, and Firewood & Whiskey.

Sexy Dice Game. Your man likes a good game, right? How about a sexy dice game? There are several versions, but the general idea is you take turns rolling the dice and what turns up is some combination that creates interesting foreplay. You can find these games online and from Christian sex retailers, or you could even make your own. If you’re looking for a ready-made version, Pure Romance carries one set called Spicy Dice.

Bath Salt. You won’t catch your manly man eyeballing the bath products section at your local grocery store. But although men aren’t known for taking bubble baths, many of them do enjoy a good soak — especially with a wife willing to get in that tub with him. Now, suddenly, bath time is a whole lot funner! So what bath product would your guy like? How about a product like ManSalt, a bath salt product for “relieving aching muscles, improving skin quality and [leaving] an irresistible masculine scent”?

Sexy Picture of You, His Gorgeous Wife. I’m not a big fan of taking extremely revealing pictures of yourself for your spouse. Perhaps I’ve simply heard too many horror stories of good-intentions-gone-wrong when someone else discovers the photographic evidence. But a¬†suggestive photo can be a lovely thing — reminding your husband that you are uniquely there for his eyes and his touch and hinting at the real, three-dimensional thing you get to enjoy in your marriage. So perhaps¬†your husband would love a snapshot photo of you with a come-hither look. Think of options that suggest sex more than show it, such¬†a photo of yourself in his dress shirt with buttons open enough to let him know¬†you’ll unbutton more when you’re together, or you lying naked in bed with the sheets draped across your private areas but enough skin peeking through to be an invitation. And if you want to be extra careful, use a Polaroid camera that leaves no recording of the shots taken.

Superhero Socks. What? You don’t think socks are¬†sexy? They are if you pin a note to them telling your husband he‘s your superhero, and when you remind him that¬†people reach orgasm more easily when their feet are warm. No, really;¬†there was a study about it. You can find superhero socks just about anywhere, but here’s one idea.

Marriage App for Your Phones. Did you know there are several great apps for your phone, designed to make your marriage and intimacy better? I. Had. No. Idea. But when I saw some of the offerings, I was intrigued! And when you can get technology involved in marriage improvement, you’re more likely to bring your man along in the mission. There’s a great run-down of options from Singing through the Rain blog HERE. Also,¬†I was especially fascinated to find that even¬†The Gottman Institute offers apps, including¬†Sex Questions to Ask Women,¬†Sex Questions to Ask Men, and¬†Love Talk for Guys (with¬†93 suggestions of what to say during intimacy). So gift him an app, let him download it, and then peruse together.
