As the holidays are coming, we have created this handy guide for men who want to ace lingerie gift giving
It can be the perfect gift; luxurious and practical, opulent and wearable, all at the same time. But for some men, shopping for lingerie can seem fraught with pitfalls. Follow these failsafe tips to make sure you get it right.
Let’s start with the obvious question: Will your loved one like receiving lingerie?
The answer is almost always going to be yes, as long as it is the right kind.
While most people think of satin and lace when they think of lingerie gifts, there are also women who prefer a great sports bra, or new swimwear. Gifts that show that you have thought about who they are, what they like and what they need are always the most appreciated.
Have a rummage through her lingerie drawer and look at what sort of things she likes. Pay attention to what she is actually wearing, and what is left languishing at the back of the drawer. What colours does she like?
Does she go for balconnets, plunge bras, smooth t-shirt bras, or perhaps even bralettes? Don’t worry if that all sounds like gibberish, just snap a picture of one of her favourite bras and our professionals will be able to recommend something in the right shape and size.
Remember that the women who work in the lingerie store are experts. Make use of them and their knowledge.
If you are struggling to choose something, consider nightwear. As the nights get darker, cool cotton loungewear comes into its own. If your special someone is truly too difficult to shop for, there are always gift vouchers.
And finally, give a thought to how you give it. Whatever you choose, it should be beautifully wrapped with care to make sure the gift looks as good when it is opened as it did in the store.
Will you leave it under the tree, to be opened with the family? Or perhaps leave a beautifully wrapped parcel on her pillow? You know her best, and this is your chance to show it.
