This post won't be for everyone - but don't worry, I'm not going to include any pictures that might offend anyone. (And the clickable links all take you to non-offensive pages, too.) But I swear this was a real question I got recently, and I thought it was worth an answer.
The authors at mypleasure.com/features/bulletins/9.asp have this good advice about whatever storage product you use: Rule Number One: Keep it in Reach of the Bed. We always want to store frequently-used items near where they will be used, and the adult toys are no exception.
You certainly don't need any specifically-for-the-toys storage. Many readers at mypleasure.com use a simple shoe box, often kept under the bed. And for those not offended by pictures of such toys, take a look at homemade-six-toys.com/organize/index.html. (But change the vowel in the word six - I'm trying to make sure this post gets through to those receiving it by e-mail.) The author shows how various organizing products - a tool belt, tackle box, and more - can be used for the toys. Depending on your sense of humor, you might find this hilarious - especially the spice rack.
But if you want something specifically for the toys, there are some nice products that don't scream "adult toys in here!" For example, see the adult toy box at the top of this post - and note the lock. This is one of the many options at DevineToys.
Another fine option are the products from ToiBocks. There's a "jewelry box" which has an upper tray - which only lifts out (to allow access to the toys) if you know the secret to the hidden lock mechanism. Update on Dec. 22, 2013: ToiBocks is no longer in business, but some sites may still have its products for sale.
And there's also the "tissue box" shown above - with no lock, but who would think that this is actually a storage container?
