The Virtue of Giving Lingerie

For me, receiving lingerie as a present first started in college when my insanely chic mom gave me two lace teddies, instead of the usual flannel pajamas, for Valentine's Day. Traditionally, people think of giving lingerie when in a romantic relationship. It doesn't have to only be that way. Whether you're endowing lingerie to a partner, friend, or family member, each is perfectly acceptable. After all, lingerie is the perfect personal gift to give someone that you know well.

Consequently, I've been giving and receiving lingerie as gifts for years. Friends and family still remind me about the great little lingerie sets I bought them years ago. Personally, I have a couple pieces that I'll hang onto and look at again when I'm 80--just to put a smile on my face.

The act of giving lingerie can be racy, sassy, or just plain cheeky. In any case, it's a gift that says, "I want you to have fun, be confident and enjoy yourself." The outcomes and mood enhancing possibilities are endless with lingerie.

The Virtues of Giving Lingerie:

  1. It's personal
  2. It's romantic
  3. It can be elegant and classy
  4. It's thoughtful. The giver usually has to know the recipient fairly well in order to purchase it
  5. More expensive than chocolate, same price as roses and less expensive than diamonds
  6. It's good karma. Whatever goes around, comes around
  7. Chances are that there's a special place in Heaven for people who save loved ones from a granny panty induced comatose
  8. You could be the instigator of a love affair that she will have with lingerie and priceless panties the rest of her life
  9. You're helping her celebrate her inner Eve
  10. It's the gift that keeps on giving

I couldn't agree with you more - I gave my friend a sexy new robe when she was feeling blue and, voila! I think it cheered her up more than any other gift could have. Everyone deserves to look sexy, but most women have not yet discovered just how fabulous great lingerie can make them feel.

Love the blog - it's so great to find another lingerie lover who is also a great writer! Keep up the good work!
