Buying Christmas gift for women can be a bit daunting, especially if you’re thinking about dipping a toe into the lingerie department. To help find the perfect gift, Avec Amour’s shopping specialists have put together a tried-and-tested approach.
Start with the basics: What does she wear day to day? What does she do to relax? Choose something that speaks to her lifestyle and personality. If you’re not sure about her size, sneak a peek at her wardrobe to see what she normally wears. Or play it safe, and buy products that come in more general sizes — like small, medium and large.
For some Christmas shopping inspiration, the experts at Avec Amour Online Lingerie have rounded up some gift ideas for your girlfriend or wife based on a few personality types.
Classic Chic: If your girlfriend loves old Audrey Hepburn flicks, wears classic monochrome clothes, and often dons a swipe of red lipstick, then classic is the way to go. She’s timeless and elegant, and her Christmas gifts should be too!
|The gift? Look for the Bella Donna Mini Dressing Gown by Mimi Holliday. With intricate lace, soft fabric and a sophisticated cut, this sexy black number will never go out of style.
Available S/M or M/L
Low-Key Lady: On a Friday night, your leading lady reaches for… a good book, a warm cup of tea, fuzzy slippers, and plenty of cuddle time. She’s all about creature comforts, so find her something soft and cozy this Christmas.
|The gift? Heidi Klum Intimates is the master of comfy lingerie. Case in point: the berry-hued Zoe Chemise, which must be one the softest slips on earth. With lacy cups and satin straps, it’s feminine and flirty too.
Available Small, Medium, Large
Decadent Dame: There’s always something to celebrate with this VIP vixen. If the woman in your life gravitates towards the finer things in life, then treat her to the most valuable thing of all: an incredible night’s sleep.
The gift? There is simply nothing more luxurious than a set of silk pajamas. Treat your special someone to a pair of Stella McCartney Poppy Snoozing Long Sleeve Pyjamas and she will thank you every night of her life. Soft and sophisticated, the beautifully tailored set comes in the brand’s signature jacquard flower print — in a conveniently festive shade of crimson.
Available Small, Medium
Femme Fatale: Provocative, sensual and always up for an adventure — your femme fatale will love a Christmas gift that brings you closer together.
|The gift? Spice things up with the gift of alone time, complete with a steamy massage. A Maison Close candle, in scents like jasmine and black cumin, is a romantic way to start the evening. Conveniently enough, the wax melts down into a useful massage oil when things heat up.
Available in: Amber, Jasmin & Black Cumin, Vintage Rose, Monoi, Orange Blossom
Too Cute: For the girl who is adores pastel hues, polka-dots, and barrels of kittens — select a Christmas gift that reveals your softer side.
|The gift? Take a tip from your girlfriend’s Instagram feed and give the girl the gift of cats! You can’t go wrong with the Mimi Holliday Narcissus Eyemask, which is perhaps the most adorable sleeping mask on the planet, covered in a black-and-white kitty motif.
Pretty Practical: Multi-tasking is a must for your wonder woman, which means your Christmas gift better be as industrious as the Mrs.
| The gift? If your lady appreciates a present with a purpose, then she’ll love the Brag Company Katie Bra Bag — a dedicated travel bag that promises to keep bras organized and protected. It’s not all work and no play, though: Literally shaped like a bra, the bag is perky, pink and covered in black tulle. Matching Katie Panty Bag that separates your Clean panties with your Not So Clean ones.
(HK$ 640.00 Bra Bag / HK$440.00 Panty Bag)
The Trendsetter: Celebrities and models have transformed the notion of lingerie by adding sexy corsets, lacy playsuits and satin tops into their everyday wardrobes. Help her nail the look with a daring number from Avec Amour this Christmas.
|The gift? Surprise her with a chic Stella McCartney Olivia Humming Bodysuit — the padded bodysuit with black polka dot mesh side & back panels makes this top great for parties just by adding a skirt or pants as well as an intimate night in.
