Looking for some last-minute gift ideas for the lingerie lover on your nice-or-naughty list?
If you don’t know her size, style or favorite label, why not think outside the box and try one of these gift items and accessories offered by leading lingerie brands?
Whether you’re shopping for a girl, a guy, a friend or lover, there’s something here that will definitely amuse and delight!
Posy Teacup Candle (£19) — Ayten Gasson
This seems like an odd gift offering from a label specializing in exquisite silks, but there’s a connection: the teacups come from a supplier in Nottingham, where Ayten sources her authentic vintagesque lace. Each cup is filled with eco-friendly soy wax and burns for 30 hours. When it’s finished, use the cup to have morning tea in your AG undies.
Flirty Little Secret Firming Bronzer w/ Pheromones ($32) — Booty Parlor
It bronzes, it firms, it has pheromones. Need any more convincing? Okay, it’s got a nice peach-mango scent too. Apply generously after the kids have passed out.
Low-Rise Thong w/Pocket ($26) — Irely
Trust us, when your girlfriends see these patent-pending goodies they’re ALL going to want a pair. Irely‘s great idea is to add a hidden pocket inside the rear band of their lacey thongs, briefs and shorts. Big enough for keys, ID, credit cards and even a cell phone. Seriously, you will never, ever take a bag to a club again.
Igloo Hot Water Bottle (£35) — Avoca
Sometimes a girl just likes to sleep alone … and still stay warm. This fluffy fleece-covered number offered by Figleaves will do the trick on nights when your beau is otherwise engaged. There’s also a version with a cable-knit cover. Both come with a label that says, “Baby, it’s cold outside”, like you needed reminding.
Magic Spell Candles — The Lake & Stars
Okay, so you missed your chance to grab The Lake & Stars signature candies, fridge magnets, toothbrush and those wicked co-branded Nike kicks? Then try your luck with these kitschy limited-edition candles that come with instructions for performing specific spells, including some recipes concocted by the TL&S team themselves. They claim these things were “blessed” by real Hoodoo practitioners in California, so they must work.
’69’ by Agent Provocateur ($24.95) — Agent Provocateur
AP likes to think they literally wrote the book on love and, well, this time they’re right. This dual-sided collection of erotic fiction explores AP’s favorite subject — getting caught in the act. Nightime reading that won’t put you to sleep.
Silk Elbow Gloves (£160) — Modern Courtesan
Pair these beauties with your favorite naughty maid’s outfit, or just wear them for a night out and enjoy the compliments. A bit pricey for a stocking stuffer, but she/you deserves it.
Polka Dot Knicker / Christmas Tree Ornament (£45) — Lascivious
It looks lovely hanging from your tree, but this little holiday bauble contains a secret. Inside is a super-sexy pair of polka-dot tie-side briefs from Belle et BonBon. Also available in a lace version with a leaf print.
Feather Boa ($195) — Kiki De Montparnasse
Looking for a surefire way to tickle his/her fancy? You can’t go wrong with this sumptuous bedroom accoutrement in rich marabou feathers. Think about it: shouldn’t every girl have a feather boa at some point in her life? Available in black or ivory.
Santa Willy Wear Pouch (£5) — Ann Summers
Don’t blame Santa if he decides to spice up your stocking with something intended for the old boy himself. This thoughtful holiday headwear will keep him warm on the coldest nights of the year. Comes with mistletoe and two silver balls on decorative chains. You know, so you can hear him coming.
Blessings and best wishes for the holiday season to all our friends and fans. We’ll be back in a few days!
We’ve been poring over catalogues and digging through our product samples looking for one thing: the perfect Christmas morning lingerie ensemble. Sexy but seasonal. Something that’ll make you the first thing he wants to unwrap!
Without further ado, our choice for the year’s most appropriate Christmas lingerie set is Myla‘s Rosalyn collection. Guaranteed to earn a hearty ho-ho-ho, if you catch my meaning.
The Rosalyn line, in bright lipstick red, is a delicious confection of silk satin coordinates with frosty peach lace trim. Start with the daring underwire peek-a-boo bra and complete the look with a dainty lace suspender with satin bow, and the equally tantalizing open-back knickers. All in all, it makes for quite the little package.
So if you don’t have kids underfoot and you’re not still living with the folks, this is a great opportunity to turn Christmas morning into something seductive and special this year.
After all, even Santa needs something more than milk and cookies to look forward to!
