Gay men are notoriously difficult to shop for. Let’s say you’ve come across what you think is a cute little stocking stuffer. We probably already have it. But there are a few tried-and-true gay holiday gifts that will never let you down.

Here are 12 gay holiday gifts for the handsome homo in your life:

1. A Pair or Two of Fun Socks

Life’s too short to own boring socks, OK? Nothing adds a little zing to an everyday outfit quite like a pop of color or funky print around your gay friend’s perfectly sculpted ankles. Happy Socks has you covered. Seriously, tell your friend to throw those white athletic socks away.

2. Quality Poppers VCR Cleaner

You know, for all those VHS tapes boxed up in your friend’s closet that need cleaning. But seriously, no one does bespoke poppers like the guys at Double Scorpio, an Austin-based “farm to disco” label. (We spoke to them back in February about their business, and why you’ll never want to buy a bottle of RUSH again.) They’re one of the great gay holiday gifts for the guy you want to lure to bed.

3. RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 4 Magnets

Because who doesn’t need Latrice Royale telling them, “Get these nuts away from my face!” every time they reach for that pint of Halo Top? These are lenticular prints, which is a fancy way of saying they’re basically two images in one, and when you tilt them (or, say, open the fridge), the image changes!

4. A Bidet Toilet Attachment

It’s 2018. Why are we still wiping our own butts? Help your friend or loved one join the 21st century with a bidet attachment by Tushy, which runs much cheaper than a $1,000 Japanese toilet. These things fit on whatever’s in your bathroom. Your friend’s butt will thank him.

5. An Adult Coloring Book

Few things are as therapeutic as coloring a picture of Ryan Gosling. (And we don’t judge you when you also sketch a picture of yourself being caught up in his warm embrace.) For the guy who loves coloring but who’s also a thirsty bitch, opt for Color Me Swoon: The Beefcake Activity Book for Good Color-Inners as well as Beginners.

6. Kinky (and Good Quality) Underwear

Sometimes we all want to feel a bit naughty, but there are times that $4.99 jockstrap from Amazon just won’t cut it when visitors are expected. That’s when you reach for a pair of Gregg Homme undies. Woof.

7. A Cute Tee (That Also Raises Money for Charity)

The artist behind the Iceman solo comic series, Sina Grace, teamed up with Represent to create this fun tee featuring a dog and cat bonding over comics. And it benefits Rainbow Railroad, an organization that helps queer people around the world escape violence and persecution. Basically, if you don’t buy it, you’re a monster.

8. This Magic Potion for Bottoms

File this one under gay holiday gifts for all the bottoms in your life (or really anyone who wants their digestive system running like magic). Guys who take Pure For Men #StayReady for the sex of their dreams. And it’s vegan!

9. A Cheeky Pin

In case you haven’t noticed, pins are all the rage these days. Much like those quirky socks we mentioned above, they’re a simple, fun way to accessorize an outfit, taking you from “Hey, how’s it going?” to “Hey, how are you, ohmygodIlovethatpinwheredyougetit?!”

10. Queer Prayer Candle

Times are … interesting, y’all, and sometimes that calls for lighting a candle and whispering a little prayer. And let’s be real, half of you queens are praying to Beyoncé on a regular basis already. Up the ante with one of these patron saint candles.

11. A Butt Scrub

Honestly, it’s the gift you never knew you needed until you tried it out. Your gay friend will forever sit on faces with confidence thanks to this miracle blend by Studio Ready. His booty (and his boyfriend) will thank you (and us).

12. The Gayest Pillow on Earth

Gay Gifts 299

Is your friend’s home décor a little stale? Well, “stale” will be the last word you use to describe his living room when it’s covered in Tom of Finland muscle hunks and leather daddies.

What do you think of these gay holiday gifts? Which are you adding to your own list?
