Lingerie as a gift for her on Christmas

Updated on January 31, 2015

Thinking of a gift for women in your lives this Christmas? Women, yes for your sister, cousin and of course the center of your attention, your other half. I recommend lingerie. Aside from jewelry which is classic, it is you who knows her well, for a change and something more romantic, try it.

What is a lingerie?

It derives from the French word linge, "washables" — as in faire le linge, "do the laundry" — and ultimately from linen for washable linen (wikipedia). It has been said that the concept of lingerie is to free women from the more restrictive form of clothing before the turn of the 20th century. Women before wore corsets and restrictive clothing so that their body will have shapes and curves, and to be modest also. But now in our present times, lingerie are becoming more sexier and it is becoming part of a mode where you can also wear them as outerwear.


Lingerie, self confidence and being sexy

Now, we will talk about lingerie, whoever told you that wearing a lingerie is only for those women who have curves? It is the confidence and the feel not the actual size, isn’t it? For most of us, will we be insulted if our men buys us a lingerie? No. Absolutely not, it just means he find you sexy when you wear those sexy ones. Remember the times when you were just dating and see the glow in your men’s eyes.

Wearing lingerie and feeling sexy builds self confidence

How I came to like it

Every month I received a catalogue about sexy lingerie. It just came to my door one time and I have been receiving it ever since. I moved to this place two years ago and I don’t know the people who owns this place before me. One time I have nothing to do and I browse on the selection.

I just thought that they are sexy and very appealing to the eye. And then why not I said to myself, I was tempted to order and then I chose the thong with matching bra, colored red, in time for my Valentine, I could have a date by then I told myself. I ordered once and then I feel good when the order came, it exactly fit me. Now, every time I feel like I teasing myself and feeling sexy again, I order again another one. Huh, my friend tease me once and asked me whom are you wearing that for, well myself, duh….I don’t have a man right now but to think about it, why do we wear sexy lingerie? One way to boost self confidence?

Being comfortable is of course the number one reason we like to wear such satins, polyester, satin, lace etc. I like to feel of being sexy too. At first I feel itchy but it feels good after sometime. I like satin. I like it when I sleep and I wear it with my pillow, then I feel sexy again. The next day I ordered three of them, one for my friend who had just a birthday and I sent one to my sister. I guess I am a good appraiser of body sizes. It fit them exactly. And that is the story why I always give lingerie as a gift to my friends, they call me Ms. Lingerie.

You see, women at times just want to feel sexy, if not for the men in their lives but specially for themselves.



Through the years it is not about the physical part , it is more of companionship and adding spice into it, some kind of spice is good too.. I believe that we should continue to feel sexy even after how many births and how much do we weigh. We might think he is buying us a lingerie because that’s for him----he likes you to wear it.

Women from all sizes need not worry or be insulted when their men buys them lingerie. It is my contention that all people from all walks of life are drawn to sexy images. Being sexy means you have self confidence and personality.

      Lingerie is awesome as a gift, though I would not buy it as a Christmas or birthday present normally... Just a gift that makes its own celebration, so to speak. My wife is self-conscious about her body and really does not like lingerie. To her it just reminds her that she is not a super-model. If I wanted a supermodel I would have married one... I wanted a super-person, and she is definitely that. A super-person in lingerie... even better! =0)

      I love lingerie, even better if it is a present. To see my reflection in the mirror wearing a lovely set makes me feel really sexy all day long, because I know I am prepared for whatever the day brings to me :)

      Ohhhh lingerie. Even if I'm a woman, I can really appreciate lingerie on other women. Unfortunately, dear, I don't wear one because could not find one that will fit my chubby frame :). But hey, don't mind me. This is a great hub.

      Just a note, there's a note up there saying "no amazon results found". Maybe you posted the wrong URL or something. Just check. :)

      I definitely like giving lingerie to my significant other, as a double-gift. However, I find that we go shopping together, as it will cut down on a lot of guess-timation and headache. Unlike you, I can't really pick just the right lingerie :D
