Should You Give Your Girlfriend Lingerie?

Jun 2, 2008
Guys, believe me when I tell you that I know how hard it can be to buy the special woman in your life a gift. If it's too practical, you'll just piss her off. Try buying her a blender for her birthday to see what I mean. Even if you've heard her mention a thousand times that the old one is a piece of junk, this will never be a good move. And God help you if you show up with anything even remotely resembling a vacuum cleaner.

Extravagant and totally unnecessary is always the way to go when buying gifts. But what to get? Diamonds? Whoa, slow that train down! A stuffed animal? Nah, we're not in high school anymore. A kitten? That's ridiculous on the grounds that this cat will probably hate you. It's just one of the ironies of life. But if not those, then what?

Now, maybe you have it a little bit easier than I usually do. Maybe your girlfriend has a list of hobbies that you can plan presents around, and you always know exactly what to get her. Maybe she makes it simple for you to get through any gifting occasion. If so, great! You are set! And furthermore, don't let this one get away. But for the rest of us clueless masses out there, here's an idea - How about some lingerie?

Don't stop reading just yet. I realize that a lot of guys never consider giving lingerie as a gift. I mean, they consider it, but are somewhat, well let's face it, afraid to. They're afraid of the reaction they'll get because we all know that giving a woman something frilly, and see-thru to wear is as much a gift for the guy giving it as it is for her. While this is most definitely true, as few men will deny the fact that they love to see their significant other wear something sexy; and granting that it can backfire on you horribly; I still say that there is nothing to fear but the prospect of never giving it a try. Well, that or having a vase thrown at you.

But this won't happen if you do things the right way. If you do things the right way, lingerie is a gift she'll be happy to receive. And the first part of doing things the right way is not to hand her a brown paper bag. Package the silky garment of your choice in a tasteful gift box, preferably with some sort of bow around it. Although I said "silky garment" it doesn't have to be. You could go with satin, lace, or whatever you think suits her. The simple rule about material is this - If it's rough against your skin it'll be just as rough against hers, so get something that you like to touch. The next step is to present this pretty, gift boxed item to the woman of your dreams along with something else that does not scream, "I wanna get some lovin' tonight, Sweetcheeks!" Something along the lines of flowers or chocolates, perhaps. This is a nice touch that she'll appreciate. And hey, if nothing else, at least if you give her some flowers to put in that vase, she can't throw it at you as readily. This is always a good thing, and therefore a win-win.

Another point that I would like to suggest that you consider if you're unsure about whether fine lingerie is really a decent present, is an observation about the difference in the way that men and women treat undergarments. This being in general, of course, and you must understand that you are the one who knows your significant other the best. But it is my opinion that men tend to view undergarments as nothing more than a functional thing that sits between pants and bare skin. I would suggest to you that fine lingerie is far more than just that. Just as much as high heels or make up, fine lingerie is an integral part of every outfit, as it can help to bring out the full potential of whatever she decides to wear, and make her look her absolute best. It pushes up, conceals, and accentuates. It acts as an essential foundation for whatever is put over it.

In light of all this, don't you think that at least an attempt at choosing a nice piece of lingerie for your girlfriend is a worthwhile effort? I certainly do. Try it sometime. It could make your next special occasion even more memorable.
