15 Newlywed Must Haves


Don't be the person who shows up to a bridal shower/wedding with some $4 Warming KY Jelly that will burn the newlyweds' bits for days.

We know that buying romantic items for a new couple can be difficult, but it doesn't have to be. We've outlined our top 15 must-have items for brides- & grooms-to-be.


1. Condoms

If you get nothing else for the newlyweds, get them two things: 1) Condoms, and 2) Lubricant. Even if she is taking birth control, even if she has an IUD, even if the man had a vasectomy... We believe in keeping things safe, so it's important to have a supply just in case.

We have options for almost every need: Basic classic ribbed condomsnon-latex condoms for our friends with latex sensitivities, as well as flavored condoms. There's no excuse not to be safe!


2. Lubricant

That brings us to our #2 most important, and often overlooked, newlywed item: lubricant.

There is one large misconception about lubricant, and we're here to shut it down... Lubricant newbies often believe that you don't need lubricant if the woman is properly aroused.

Wrong. No. Absolutely incorrect.

Here's a little lesson for you: A woman's natural lubrication levels are dependent on a variety of factors, most of them being more influential than the level of arousal. Some of these factors include menopause/low estrogen, antihistamine usage, anxiety, autoimmune disorders, antidepressant usage, smoking, breastfeeding, and childbirth. Lubrication levels fluctuate during the month as well, with increased lubrication happening around the time of ovulation, and decreased lubrication happening immediately following menstruation.

Let me repeat that for everyone out there who doesn't understand vaginas: it doesn't matter how ~in the mood~ we are if our bodies are not capable of producing the necessary lubrication at that specific time. That's why during the dry spells it's important to have a nice, high-quality lubricant on hand to help out a little.

A basic, water-based lubricant is a great everyday product that works in almost every situation. For encounters involving water, you'll want to step it up to a silicone lubricant. If the newlyweds would appreciate a sample pack to test out a few different options, then you can't go wrong with the Sliquid Naturals Lube Cube.


3. Rose Petals

This is the perfect gift for all newlyweds. It's an ideal addition to any special night - like a wedding night! Sweet and romantic, it won't frighten even your most green of friends.

These reusable petals are lightly scented. Sturdy enough to use again and again, but delicate enough that it takes more than one glance to realize they aren't fresh. They won't stain your sheets, they're easy to store, and you can stop wasting money on fresh flowers that don't last.


4. The Cookie Sutra

If the newlyweds you're shopping for aren't quite ready for a full Kama Sutra yet, then look to The Cookie Sutra. A lighthearted, silly book that provides all the information you could need, while maintaining a PG-13 rating.


5. Afterglow Tissues

Sorry to spoil the movies, folks. Sex is messy.

Showering immediately after is not always an option. Afterglow Tissues contain aloe for skin conditioning, as well as disinfectant and antiseptic properties to really CLEAN. These towels should be in every sexually active human's arsenal. 


6. Jimmy Jane Massage Stone

This stone takes 90% of the work out of giving a massage. You can use any or all of the nodes for targeted massage, or use the rounded side for a gentle, relaxing rub down. This gift is the perfect addition to a romantic evening.


7. Massage Candle

What's a massage without massage oil? Jimmy Jane Massage Candles have been some of our best-sellers. They come in four delicious scents: Bourbon, Cucumber Water, Dark Vanilla, and Pink Lotus. Just light the candle to set an ambient, fragrant scene. Once it's melted, use the pour spout in the corner to drizzle the oil on your partner for a relaxing, smooth massage. Pair with the Jimmy Jane Massage Stone and you'll have the best massage of your life.
