Whether you’re buying for your live-in s.o., your three a.m. phone call, or both (kidding!!), we’ve plucked the sweetest and sinfullest gifts, from bedding to wall art to perfume you can share.
(L) Nice: Matching, unisex, personalized (you can emboss the silver tag) bracelets-for-two say “We’re More in Love Than You.” $125 for both at SPUNKbyCM‘s Etsy shop (free shipping til November 28).
(R) Naughty: Jewellery that looks like handcuffs, or handcuffs that look like jewellery? Big questions, among other things, raised by Agent Provocateur. $295 at Carte Blanche (758 Queen St. W).
(L) Nice: Wake up every day to a little bit of Paris in your kitchen, and yes, you can get cappuccinos at Tim Horton’s now, but WHATEVER LOOK HOW CUTE. The Delonghi Magnifica S makes espresso and steams milk (works best with skim) at the touch of one button, and it cleans itself more often than a cat. (Ed note: We were given this “superautomatic” model to test and we’ve only broken it once, which is basically a ringing endorsement.) $1699 at Sears, The Bay, and other appliance-sellers.
(R) Naughty: Open a bottle of the devil’s brew with this Alessi limited edition (2007) corkscrew. $125 at Studio Brillantine.
(L) Nice: This Filson king-sized Mackinaw blanket is making us all synaesthetic inside. Doesn’t it just look like chestnuts roasting? Sound like snow falling on the roof? $255 at Drake General Store and The Future of Frances Watson.
(R) Naughty: Cilque‘s 100% silk, 100% Canadian bedsheets in “Belgian Chocolate” are like catnip to slinky sensualists. Instant score. $449 at Cilque.com.
(L) Nice: This vanilla sex-candle burns sloooowly for 42 hours and can be dripped onto your warm fuzzy love-monkey’s back for an ardent massage; also comes with a massage brush. $28 at Come As You Are.
(R) Naughty: Granted, we’re still not sure how this double-pronged, meant-for-straight-intercourse We-Vibe works, but it looks kinky. It’s the #1 couples (ed note: straight couples) vibrator in the world. $99 at Come as You Are (and there’s a new version just out now, too).
(L) Nice: Look at this fruity loopy sweet little lovebird! Lovebird #6, to be exact, by Luke Stephenson at 20×200.com (prices vary by print size).
(R) Naughty: If your girlfriend is in the 99% of straight girlfriends, make fantasies way, way, way easier by simply pasting this Ryan Gosling-in-Drive-inspired poster to your face. Available from this Friday, November 26, at Gallery 1988 online. (And thanks to Melissa Bernais for the tip.)
(L) Nice: “Untitled” by Maison Martin Margiela is a verdant, sparkling, youthful unisex scent, like morning-after dew. $100 at The Bay.
(R) Naughty: Meanwhile, the Six Scents perfume Jeremy Scott co-created with Philippe Roques is called “Illicit Sex,” which really takes the guesswork out of it all. $110 at Jonathan + Olivia (49 Ossington).
(L) Nice: Rachel Domm‘s “Forever & Ever” screenprint is the next best thing to, I don’t know, baking a strawberry shortcake from scratch. $50 (plus $10 shipping) at Rachel Domm’s online shop.
(R) Naughty: Thickness #2. Sexy comics. Also, it’s called “thickness.” $10 at Thickness.me.
