    Three Easy Lingerie Picks for the Madness of Holiday Shopping

    Thanksgiving is here which means it’s officially time to start your holiday shopping. Or at the very least, start thinking about it. I love gifting lingerie to my friends, since we all love a little something to make us feel beautiful and sexy. While you may not want to get get a set of massage oils for an office pollyanna exchange, for those you know the best, lingerie, loungewear, and sleep accessories can be very thoughtful and indulgent gifts. So if you hate crowds, stress, or the disappointment of waiting in line to have your favorite product sold out, keep reading to see why Journelle, Figleaves, and Nordstrom are some of my favorite shops to buy from during the holidays.


    Hanky Panky Racy Nude Illusion Peek-a-Boo Bralette

    Journelle is one of my favorites for their huge selection, but if what you order isn’t what you expected or the fit isn’t quite right for the recipient, you can return it with the included shipping label. All domestic ground shipping is free (best word ever), and you can expect to get it within 8 days of your order. For choosing the right gifts, they have a special section of their site dedicated to gift buying for confused boyfriends, as well as more budget-friendly selections. The Fifty under Fifty section is my favorite, where I found this awesome Hanky Panky Bralette for just $48.


    Pandora Stretch Lace Camisole

    Honestly, I feel like Figleaves always has some sort of sale going on in addition to their normal sale section. So it wouldn’t surprise me if they update their site with some amazing steals after Thanksgiving (currently they have 20% off for Thanksgiving).  I love that they also have a men’s section, as well as a men’s fit guide (women aren’t the only one with fit problems apparently). While most sites have a gift section to explore during the holidays, Figleaves has one for a wide range of occasions and an even wider range of budgets. The Pandora Lace Camisole and Panty is an easy set that most girls would love.


    Cosabella “Never Say Never” Boxed Lace Thongs

    Finally, Nordstrom. The luxury department store has always catered to customer service in store, and the online experience is no different. The sleep and lingerie section is broken down into different categories to help you zone in on exactly the products you’re looking for. Or if you’re drawing a blank when trying to find a gift, they have their own Gift Guide section as well. Nordstrom also offers free shipping and free returns all year round, so you won’t have to worry about being stuck with something you don’t want. I’m loving the Cosabella sets for stocking stuffers, or if you’re willing to spend more and know her body better (or if you’re “gifting” to yourself), the Dita Von Teese “Screen Queen” Bodysuit is to die for.

    The moral of the story is that you don’t need to leave your house this Winter.

    But also that holiday shopping doesn’t need to require a 5 Hour Energy Shot and missing quality holiday time with your family (…or just your cat). Just be sure to check the site’s return policy and shipping charges to avoid any unwanted surprises!
