The Art of Gifting Lingerie

Arguably the best way to make anyone feel special, wanted and acknowledged is by giving them a gift. A gift they cherish and love. But choosing a great gift for someone is an art in itself. Gifting lingerie is tricky but if done with some thought and care, it can be a fun and unique way to show one’s love and gratitude.

There are hundreds of pieces that can be chosen from websites, catalogues and stores. Babydolls, teddies, night gowns, sleepwear, brassieres, panties etc. are just some of the choices. From risqué to demure, from classy to racy, there’s lingerie for very kind of taste and choice. But some rules of thumb are important while choosing great intimate wear for someone special.

Before venturing into actually getting the lingerie to gift, some aspects of the receiver must be taken into consideration. Knowing the size and structure of the woman is extremely important. For someone on the heavier side of the spectrum, tight fitting and skimpy lingerie may not be the best choice. Contouring, shaping and flowing lingerie is the perfect bet for gifting. Lingerie should make the wearer look curvy, buxom and well- endowed. Satin gowns, silk babydolls, frock style teddies, plus size lingerie are some of the options to choose from. If the gift receiver is slender or petite; there are myriad of lingerie pieces to lay hands on which make the wearer feel like a star and even look like one. Gorgeous satin camisoles with crystals, bows and ribbons, a very usable and classy set of bras, a set of colourful panties, a combo of satin camisole with matching thong/short/panty can make for a great lingerie gift.

One very important aspect of gifting is to give a gift that is perfect for the occasion. If it’s a celebration of a special occasion like birthday, anniversary, Valentine’s Day; customizing and personalizing the gift for the receiver can speak volumes of thoughtfulness and love on the giver’s part for e.g., lingerie with initials, name, a small catchy text or love note are sure to be a hit. When gifting during holidays or Christmas, costume lingerie in red and white colour palette can be fun. If the lingerie gift is a way to add spark to a dull, monotonous sex life, racy and daring pieces like body stockings, cut out lingerie are sure to set the temperature soaring.

If the lingerie gift is meant for a bride-to-be, sky is the limit for the gifting choices. Though white is an eternally favourite colour among most brides, colours like sapphire, emerald green, scarlet red are very eye-catching too. Bridal lingerie gifts can range from satin robes and lacy white bra to sets of thongs and veil. Garter belt with suspenders and stockings will also hit the bull’s eye. Playful white babydolls and teddies mimicking the bride’s white wedding dress in a naughty and sexy way can never go wrong.

There’s a wide range of budget friendly lingerie available for gifting. From affordable to downright luxurious, lingerie can cater to very budget. If money comes second to the quality of the product, lingerie with studded crystals, Chantelle lace and pure silk is the way to go. And for the real connoisseurs of timeless lingerie, there are bras and sexy lingerie with diamonds and rubies, worth a million dollars!

One has to be thoughtful and generous while gifting lingerie, lest the gift ends up being trashy and not classy. Whatever the occasion, budget, colour, a lingerie should not end up being just a showpiece. A great lingerie gift is one that brings a smile to the receiver’s face, makes her look and feel extra special and dials up the sexy quotient by scores.
