The travel-sized Kama Sutra Weekend Kit will easily slip inside your sweetie's stocking.

Stock up on adult stocking stuffers

There are a million jokes that could be cracked around the concept of an "adult stocking stuffer" and it turns out, in many cases, these gifts are on the sassy side, so you better put on your PG-13 goggles if you plan to keep reading.

Of course, tiny bottles of booze fit nicely in a stocking, and are available at just about every liquor store in town for a couple of bucks. Half-pound bags of coffee from Alterra, Anodyne or Stone Creek work, too.

But if you wanna take it up a notch or three on the party meter, stop in at the woman-owned erotic boutiques Tool Shed, 2427 N. Murray Ave., or A Woman's Touch, 200 N. Jefferson St., for all of your adult stocking stuffer needs.

We met up with Amy Moore, a "pleasure specialist" at A Woman's Touch and Laura Stuart, the owner of Tool Shed, for their saucy stocking-friendly gift recommendations.

"A pleasure specialist will help you find something that is right for you and your partner from romantic to kinky," says Moore. "A lot of people are not sure where to start and we're all trained to help people make decisions and find out what's perfect for them."
