Christmas Gift Ideas : Sexy Lingerie

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, so inevitably people will be looking to find gifts that they can purchase for their nearest and dearest. The bigger gifts will inevitably tend to be electrical items costing upwards of a day’s wages, but often the most thoughtful, valued presents and the ones that will be remembered beyond a few months are the stocking fillers – the little things that may not cost as much but will be received with joy nonetheless, the gifts that show that the giver has made an effort, has thought about what they’re giving. One of the most common stocking fillers given between adults is always underwear.

If you’re in a relationship, giving underwear as a gift can be seen – if you’re not careful – as a present for yourself. It can create the impression that you’ve looked at the underwear and given some thought to how much you’ll like looking at your significant other when they wear it. Even given with the best will in the world, it’s a present idea that needs to be handled with care – particularly if it’s an item of underwear designed  more with cosmetic concerns in mind than comfort. Naturally, it’s something of a judgement call, and the final decision lies with you.

Christmas LingerieIt would be inaccurate to say that sexy underwear will never be received with rapture. It can often hint at another present, to be given later when both parties are alone together – a night to remember. Perhaps not a material gift, but one that will always evoke happy memories. There is also the indisputable fact that looking sexy is often a gift in itself. The confidence that results from knowing you are desirable is something that you simply cannot put a price on. It never hurts to be reminded that you are wanted.

Another scenario where underwear can be an excellent gift is the now-annual practice of “Secret Santa” – a popular workplace endeavor which sees workmates pick each other’s names out of a hat and then each buy gifts for whoever they have picked. There are obvious restrictions on the suitability of underwear in this situation. Clearly the purchaser needs to use their own discretion when considering whether the receiver will be happy to get lingerie gifts. A man buying underwear for a woman who may be embarrassed if it becomes clear that he has purchased it (Secret Santas don’t always remain secret) quite simply isn’t behaving how he should. But between gal pals, it’s a gift that will always raise a smile.

If buying for a gentleman it is, of course, a different matter. The sexy lingerie market caters more for women than for men – it’s not big news to say this. As far as underwear goes, one item that has become synonymous with Christmas for many men is the old classic – socks. While some will look on this as a desperately uninspired gift, there are countless men who can’t seem to keep hold of a pair of socks. For them, a few pairs in the stocking will be a godsend.
