Lovehoney Couples Advent Calendar 2021
A big part of Christmas is engaging with and enjoying the various Christmas traditions. Occasionally new traditions will pop-up, whether we like them or not. Like seriously, where did that prick ‘Elf on the Shelf’ come from? As if parents aren’t busy enough on the run up to Christmas, they now have to dream up and act out the adventures of a naughty little elf for a whole month. Anyway, I digress! The old traditions are the best, and for me advent calendars are right up there as being one of, if not the best Christmas tradition. They make the build up to the festive season more exciting, and they help to make Christmas actually feel like Christmas. And news flash, they don’t just have to be all about chocolate, and they’re most definitely not just for kids!
In recent years, the popularity of advent calendars has soared and soared. You can get them from pretty much any category now; from teabags and alcohol, through to beauty and fragrance, and now delightfully we have advent calendars for adults full of sex toys and other fun things. They’ve been around for a few years, but honestly I think the offerings this year have been the best yet. This couple’s calendar from Lovehoney is great, and at just £120 it represents pretty amazing value for money too. The main gift behind door number 24 is worth £119.99 on its own!
This is a traditional 24-day advent calendar that’s undoubtedly aimed at male/female couples – if you’re in a same-sex couple you would be better off purchasing either the ‘For Her’ or the ‘For Him’ option. There is also a fantastic lingerie version available, full of gorgeous pieces in either sizes UK 8-16 or 18-24. I’ve linked all of the other options for you below:
I think the way this calendar is presented is absolutely stunning. The red box screams festive season to me, and it’s been put together beautifully. Inside everything just feels like great quality, and I even like the fact that the inner trays that house your treats aren’t plastic. I will give you a full rundown of what’s inside the couple’s advent calendar below this post, so you know not to read past the end if you don’t want the surprise to be ruined for you. However, I will be discussing the calendar contents in general, because I think it’s important for you to understand the types of products that are included.
Now, I know there will be some people, who perhaps may be more seasoned sex toy users that will think this advent calendar is not for them, and in all honesty a few of them may be right. But I also think that some people may incorrectly dismiss this as an option, when in fact this box of goodies would bring them nothing but pure delight. If you already own the gift behind door number 24 and you have a really wide variety of sex toys in your collection, then you might want to give this calendar a miss. Honestly though, if you’ve been looking at buying one of those famous clitoral toys anyway (full review here) then just buy this, because the value is incredible! I also think this is a fantastic option for anybody who wants to build their sex toy collection up, and maybe experiment with a few new things and discover what new bits of kit you might enjoy together. Think of it like a taster menu of delicious sex toys and fun bedroom things!
I really like that there are a mix of things in the calendar. There are toys for both penis and vulva owners, but there’s also some soft bondage and massage/sensory play items too. They’ve also made sure to mix them up quite well, so you’re not going to get a run of days where it’s all male pieces or anal toys for example. You won’t need to add any other items into the mix (unless you want to), but you will need one AA battery – everything else that’s powered is USB rechargeable. The bullet vibrator that’s included for day 1 (sorry, spoiler!) is multi-use, and is used to add buzz into other toys that you will discover as the days play out, which is a great idea.
Don’t expect to find 24 treats of pure orgasmic pleasure behind each window, because that’s not what this is about. For me, this is about the commitment of spending time with your lover in the sheer madness before Christmas. The orgasms are there to be had; you just might have to work harder on some days than on others, which is half the fun isn’t it? When everyone is racing around like crazy trying to get decorations up, presents chosen and wrapped, enough food bought to feed an army, this advent calendar is about dedicating some of your day to being close with your special person. It’s also about using your imagination, and combining it with what’s behind that day’s door to have fun and enjoy each other – something that we often forget to do when life gets a bit manic. There may be a couple of pieces that you wouldn’t ordinarily dream of using, maybe because you feel daft or because you think your sex life is ’too advanced’ for them. But the likelihood is that those are the pieces that will have you laughing together, being silly together with, and ultimately having a fantastic, uninhibited sex session because of. Sometimes it’s good to go back and revisit things that maybe you haven’t done in a while, or do things that maybe you’ve never tried before; this advent calendar offers you those kinds of opportunities in spades. It can be a sex life reboot in a box if you want it to be!
I also don’t think that you have to commit to opening this calendar in the traditional way if you don’t want to. Maybe time is against you? Maybe you can’t be with your lover everyday? Perhaps you’d just prefer to be able to enjoy a few new things at once? Then why not open the box every two or three days? There aren’t really any rules; you just do what feels right for you. As I said, I think the only really important thing is the commitment to have some pre-festive fun with your lover!
You may notice from the photographs that I’ve removed the contents from this advent calendar without opening the perforated doors. Careful dissection of the glue that holds the bottom of the calendar shut now means that I can put it back together so we get to enjoy it during December too! And if I decide to keep any of the items out, I can just find something to fit in the tray for that day to fill the gaps! Honestly I’m really looking forward to enjoying some ‘us time’ in amongst all the craziness of the build up to Christmas. For me, that’s priceless.
This box of delight is really just about having fun. It’s a selection box of naughtiness, and how you use it is only going to be limited by your own imagination. So why not welcome Christmas 2021 with a bang?
Lovehoney very kindly gifted this calendar for me to share with you all. This in no way alters my thoughts and opinions, because they’re mine and they’re not for changing! If you want to pick up any of the advent calendars I wouldn’t hang around, as I think they will fly out really quickly! You can find the links below:

One thing to note, it comes with only one silicone tip and no storage bag – which absolutely isn’t an issue for me. The unit itself is the same Womanizer Classic that retails at £119.99 – making the rest of the box the equivalent of just 1p!
