The holidays are all about getting a little closer to the one you love. Sometimes, a lot closer. And given the blur that is December can barely leave enough time for even the biggest romantic, we've decided to play Cupid...dressed up as a reindeer. To help you stoke the flames of love—and lust—this season, we've combed the web for a spicy assortment of sweet nothings—18 sexy little gifts that send just the right message, ie: No Card Necessary! Sure, some lacy panties can always do the trick (and we found some good ones), but sometimes, a pair of peek-a-boo stockings or a good old gold-plated magic wand are a little more likely to make that long holiday weekend a whole lot more fun.
