Don't know who else to ask, so I guess you guys are as good as anyone...

Honest question... is lingerie a real gift? I am totally stuck for good xmas ideas ... I couldn't find a few things that would have been PERFECT. Aaaaand of course I'm a guy so now it's the last minute. Realistically... it's not very useful ... maybe it makes her feel objectified ... and hopefully... I receive as much (or more?) satisfaction from it than she would. I have a few other little things for her (like a 6 of belgian lambics...) ... can I throw a sexy little thing in as well? I know she'd look gorgeous in it.

Hmmm.

Maybe this should go in the "drunken ramblings" section...

I think we need to see pictures of her in previous lingerie gifts to be sure, that is the only way to tell. That or at least revealing pictures of her so we can decide if this would be an appropriate gift for her, but be quick about it because like you say time is short.

If she's anything like my SWMBO, she would probably prefer some nice warm soft pajamas.

The lingerie thing can be fun and all, but it rarely comes out, and unless the gal in question has a lot of confidence in her body and self image, it can make her feel self conscious. Plus she'll use the pajamas all the time when the weather is cool.

my 2 cents

Another quick gift idea: Ticket Master gift certificate...you can buy it online, so it is quick and simple.

The best thing is, from a chick's perspective, is that she gets to pick the show/game/event/concert and you are obligated to go. She doesn't have to feel guilty about dragging you to it...after all you got it "for her". So she gets the warm fuzzy message that "Oh, look, he wants to spend TIME with me", which is a can't-lose, PLUS she gets to have some control over it, which, honestly, almost all women, really, crave.

Disclaimer: I'm allowed to say these things because I, too, am female. Don't any of you boys DARE say this **** or you'll be in trouble. Consider this post just a gift of insider knowledge.

a Bra would be much more useful then lingerie would. depends on the relationship you have with said "Gal", but in my pre-marriage experience I've never had a girl surprise me with lingerie.

Yup, I did some shopping at victoria's secret for christmas.....to the comfy pjs section.

I've found that for lingerie, it's funner to go together and "play dress up" go to the store and pick something out together, especially if it's a place that allows couple in dressing rooms. It can be hot.

Doing that on a "date night" can be awesome and hot. But I think the involuntary picking out and giving of a piece of lingerie can be a little awkward. What if you pick out something she thinks is too slutty for her tastes?

As a SWMBO I would love to get a gift cert from a NICE spa and I say NICE because guys those nail salons facials don't count. (Unless she gets her nails done at one and then make SURE you get a cert for the one she goes to.)

I would further suggest you get her a denominational gift cert, and not a specific "facial and 30 minute massage" one. That way she can get whatever package she wants.

Just my $0.02

Checked with the wife.. since asking a bunch of horn dogs on a beer forum isn't the way to get the female perspective. She said lingerie can be fun, but it's really a gift for YOU not the gal. I've successfully bought fuzzy cute PJs for my wife and she has been very appreciative.

Pictures are required before I can offer any more assistance.


Edit: Stephm excepted, sorry I do lose perspective and think EVERYONE on here is a guy.
