To wonder why this has come through the post for DH..?

Saw an opened perfumed shaped parcel on the side and curiosity got the better of me so thought I'd sneak and see if it was the Chanel perfume I'd be hinting about. Found this..
Would you assume it's a secret Santa?
Or I've just had a baby and he clearly isn't getting enough...

With regards to you saying it's unprofessional because he's a manager, at my work the management staff have a secret Santa amongst ourselves so it could be for a same level colleague.

Loads of dildos are penis-shaped, with veins and balls

Exactly. And you can even get ones that thrust.

Puritanical or not…. If that gets opened at work, there is a real possibility of a complaint. Many people / women would not appreciate a rubber vulva appearing in the office.

Especially once Marvin in logistics has done an obscene ventriloquist act with it. Or Ryan from finance has tested it with a cocktail sausage.

And people ALWAYS work out who gave what in a secret Santa.

If people read the first line the OP says the parcel was opened already. If your DH is leaving it lying around then maybe it's been left there as a particularly unsubtle hint?
My thought too...

@Moonmelodies

Would make somewhere handy to keep a vibrator.

@Justheretoaskaquestion91

You never do anything in private that wouldn't look good during tea with the vicar?

There are layers though, aren’t there? It’s bit like a woman owning a vibrator with testicles, hair and veins on it

@Bogeyes

Give it to a charity shop!

Why?
It’s not hers to do that with.

Don't let him take that you work! Presumably he still wants to have a job in January

He said it's a secret Santa but he's a manager

Yes this is unprofessional, as you said. Depending the exact context of who he's giving it to, it could be construed as sexual harassment in the workplace, too.

Or he's lying (not sure why, perhaps because he thought you'd not be happy with him buying the sextoy for himself, dunno).

Not really okay leaving it on the side for the 5 year old to see, nor wrapping it up in your son's style of wrapping paper. So I'm a bit Hmm about your partner now.

Hope it all turns out all right. Your child will probably/hopefully be totally disinterested in it and hopefully it won't cause problems at his workplace if that is really where it ends up.

Is there a chance someone bought it for him for secret Santa and he is too embarrassed to admit to that?

For Christ’s sake just move the gift wrapped rubber fanny out of the way of the child!

Why can’t you move the package before your son sees it? Put it in your DH’s car/bag/ out of the way fgs!!!!

@WalkingOnTheCracks

It's now wrapped up in our sons Spider-Man wrapping paper on the side which I find even more disturbing and bloody hope he moves it before DS gets up and thinks it's for him..

…when do the casts come off your arms? How are you managing to pick up the baby? When’s the deadline for your story and how are you going to type it?

😅 quite.

He needs to be very very careful giving that as a secret santa gift. In a workplace it could be misconstrued.

And don't ask about it it's really none of your business

In fairness, if I left a partially unwrapped vibrator on the side, my DH might be tempted to mention it

@namechangedaily

Thanks everyone for the laughs! He went upstairs for a shower when he got back so when he came down I said "haven't you taken your new toy with you upstairs!?" He looked very confused and said what toy I said your new girlfriend. He said it's a secret Santa but he's a manager so I don't think it's very professional?

You could just say, move that or DS will think it's got him? 🤷‍♀️

Jesus Christ is everyone on Mumsnet a Victorian?!

Get over it. Masturbation is normal. Using toys is normal. And don't ask about it it's really none of your business.


As for people whinging about secret Santa some of us work with people with a sense of humour and this sort of gift is rife.

[quote HaveringWavering]@ThirdElephant who cares, the OP didn’t open anything. Read the first sentence of the OP again.[/quote]
Ah, I see what you mean. Speed reading, sorry

[quote Benjispruce5]@HaveringWavering totally misread that. Well if it’s open he’s obviously not keeping it a secret, just ask him![/quote]

I misread it too in the OP but I realised it was already open after reading about 20 different PPs saying it was already openGrin
