Gifting can be easy at times, but it’s hard to get exhilarated over an incense holder or other trivial adult trinkets. Instead of opting for something ordinary you can surprise those dear to you with a nice toy that channels their inner child.
Adult toys can mean many things these days, but there’s actually a whole world of toys and collectibles available. Along with over-the-top aesthetics, most toys for adults are just as exciting and candid as ones for children. Brands like Medicom and Mattel have been crafting goodies for decades with some of them even appreciating in value over time.
Whether you are in the know with the latest toys or are looking for a place to start, we’ve put together a gift guide to help you navigate through the elaborate options for the upcoming holiday season.
