A local boutique in Chicago is encouraging their patrons to give back this holiday season, and by doing so you’ll get a reward from the store in return!

Early to Bed (WARNING: link NSFW because the store sells adult items), one of Chicago’s premier locally owned and ran adult stores, just kicked off their “Give Nice Get Naughty” holiday campaign. From now until the end of the year, give at least a $10 donation to a select group of charities that the store handpicked, and Early to Bed will give you a $10 gift certificate to their store in return!

If you are not familiar with Early to Bed, the store offers up a wide selection of adult toys, dvds, books, protection, and much more. The store also holds seminars on various sexual topics, and is a comfortable and open environment. In a society where sex is still a bit taboo in some realms, Early to Bed is offering up advice and products for yourself and significant other. It’s a wonderful asset to the Chicago community.

Some of the charities this year include Scarleteen, who provide sexual education to young adults and parents, the Chicago Women’s Health Center, the Young Women’s Empowerment Project, who help girls and young women impacted by the sex trade, and a few other chosen organizations. You can read about all the groups on Early to Bed site here (WARNING: link NSFW).

Once you get a receipt of your donation, you can send it to the address mentioned on their site, follow some simple instructions, and they send you a gift certificate. It’s that easy! And just to keep things clear, here is the fine print taken from their site:

• One gift certificate per person, per organization. If you want to give to multiple organizations, you can get up to three gift certificates total.
• Your donation must be for at least $10
• We must receive proof of your donation in our shop by 1/15/09
• Gift certificates will be shipped to the address you provide us within two weeks. They are valid for 12 months from date of issue.
• We reserve the right to cancel this promotion at anytime.

Never been to Early to Bed or thinking of checking it out again? Then try and stop by on a Saturday during the month of December, when the store will host Happy Hour from 3-6pm. Enjoy cupcakes, cider, and 10% off everything in-stock in the store!

So give back this season, and get something great in return!
