Shopping Tips

  • Pre-Shopping Preps:

    Online Shopping: The online sphere is the perfect trade tool to go for guys going lingerie shopping for their partner. Look for an online retail store that offers a convenient way to shop. We know some guys do not have the patience to go through racks and peer through the tags but it only takes a couple of clicks here and there when you are in the right website. So be sure to source an organized online lingerie store that ships their orders in discreet packaging. You certainly don't want to ruin the surprise with a branded package showing up at your door! Those who offer free exchanges are recommended. Just in case you read the signs wrong, at least she can have it traded for something that fits like a glove. Use the intel you have gathered pre-shopping to skim through the pages until a spotlight pops up for the perfect lingerie you both will love.

    The Occasion: This is a sensitive factor in choosing lingerie. Not all celebrations are appropriate for lingerie gift-giving. Skip Mother’s day, Easter or house-warming events (unless she asks for it). Take the plunge on the following celebrations:

    • Birthday: Get her ready for some birthday sex in something better than her birthday suit. Make it all about her with a bra and panty set which she could use beyond the occasion. A birthday present for your wife should be very sexy. If you have kids and have been married for a few years, re-ignite the passion with crotchless panties or a cupless bra telling her that you still find her dripping in sex appeal.
    • Valentine’s Day: Extra saucy, spicy and sultry lingerie is perfect for the day of love. One this days, a few Valentine's day ideas for her should include food + lingerie. Buy a special box of chocolates and babydoll and tell her that she can't taste them without putting on the lingerie first. Do not go easy on everything with hearts, red, lace that are the characteristics of Valentine’s Day Lingerie.
    • Wedding/Anniversary Night: Celebrate a lifetime of togetherness on a wedding night, anniversary or a bridal party with pristine white lingerie with lace, satin, garters and hosiery. Now that you've upgraded from gift ideas for girlfriend and into the space of 'wifey' gifts, it's time to choose something more timeless and representative of your commitment to each other. With this category, undoubtedly go 'all out' with the dinner, wine, and celebrate the occasion. Include a subtle reminder of what's to come with a sexy pair of lace panties or an open cup bra that indicates you love everything about her. Women love to dress for their man, so get her something sexy that she knows you will love.
    • Christmas: The weather outside is frightful, make the lingerie delightful! Christmas gift ideas for her are endless. Celebrate the season with red satin bow lingerie or stick to something more traditional like a red lace teddy. Make it rain like Santa Claus! On the season of giving, share the love with some themed Christmas Lingerie.

    There is no rule book. You can always expand this list according to how you celebrate your relationship and special occasions.

    A word of advice: Shop for her and not for you! Well, you might find this an opportunity to inject your fantasy and go for sexy lingerie or lingerie costume which you want to see her in. Set aside your Princess Leia slave costume fantasies aside if you think she would not be up for it just yet. If you've always wanted to try bondage, but know that your girl is too headstrong to be submissive, then don't buy the wrist restraints. However, dominant women can still love bondage and many of them LOVE bondage. Test her comfort zone to see what her style of love making is, and then go with it! Do what makes you both comfortable, after all she fell in love with YOU.

    Post-Shopping Reminders:

    After you have the delicates wrapped up with a bow on top, the best thing to do is to get her to use it! Plan a romantic scheme like leaving her the gift while you are away, pin a little love note saying you would want to see her wearing it when you get home. Get creative!

    Take it from your trusty lingerie shop, a sensual piece of lingerie is enough to woo her! Spoil your woman with a teddy (not teddy bear) and the like. You know she deserves it!
