A Sexy Gift Guide from The Babes

By Katie Harbinson and Maddie Womack

As much as we hate the consumerism around the holidays, you know we love treating ourselves to a new toy or two.  Here’s our official gift guide for anyone on the naughty or nice list:

Coming in Clutch

Unbound Babes

For the person who loves a minimal and sleek toy that really packs a punch, Unbound Babes recently launched a new and beautiful rabbit-esque toy called the Clutch. While we love anything Unbound Babes makes, the Clutch is particularly stunning. It vibrates AND thrusts. (Can confirm more than one of our staff members swear by this vibe.)

Blown Away


For the person looking for an unconventional toy, Dame’s Aer combines aesthetics with a powerful suction. And when you combine the Aer with Dame’s water-based lube (yay silicone free!), you’ll be giving a gift that will blow them away… literally. 

So Many Options


For the person with the perfectly curated Instagram feed, Maude offers toys, condoms, and lube fit for display on anyone’s nightstand. (Like the Burn No. 0 Massage Candle we shared in our Catcall-Approved Foreplay Toys guide.)

Go for handmade


For the friend who loves handmade gifts, ThemFriends offers handmade dildos in a range of colors, sizes, and firmnesses. Seriously, nothing is off the table for customizing these sex toys. Even your pickiest friend will be pleased. 

Baddie on a Budget


Romp offers some of the most affordable, yet high-quality sex toys, making it one of our favorite ways to try a new toy style without breaking the budget.They have a large range of options AND come with the cutest sticker sets. No really, the orgasms are great but who doesn’t want to open stickers.

Keepin’ it Eco-Conscious


From classic rabbits to kink options, enby offers anextensive lineup of sex toys. Most noteable are their gender-affirming products, homogoods (homegoods), and wellness items to help you shop for every person on your list. And every purchase is carbon neutral—and a portion of profits are donated to organizations supporting queer and trans people of color. 

For the Kinky Vegan

Smitten Kitten

Got a vegan icon in your life? Smitten Kitten offers a vegan kink collection that’ll rock your world. They also offer sex toys, books, games, body care items, and more online and at their storefront in Minneapolis, MN. (They’re a local favorite close to the heart of our COO Katie and Catcall Editor Kelcie!).

We’ll be here every month to answer your questions, give some unsolicited advice, and crack a few jokes along the way. In the meantime, you can find us on our websiteInstagram, and Patreon. Have a burning question you’d like us to answer? Send it our way to barrierbabes@gmail.com

Until next time,
