christmas present lingerie

The nights are getting chillier, the drinks are getting hotter, and that can only mean one thing. Before we know it, the holiday season will be upon us. That means that if you want to get what you want this year, it’s time to start hinting like crazy. Believe it or not, there’s actually a right way to get the message across about what you would love to unwrap on the big day. Of course, you don’t want to be too explicit about it at all. Instead, it’s best to keep things subtle and low-key.

Let’s face it, there’s nothing nicer than unwrapping a large present to find that it’s filled with some gorgeous, new lingerie. It just so happens to be one of the best gifts that you can get during the holidays. At least, we like to think so. So, if you really, really fancy some fabulously new treats this year, here’s what you need to do.

Don’t be too obvious about it

Okay. Real talk. You don’t want to go overboard and be too obvious here. You need your partner to think that he thought of the gift all by themself. That means that you want to lead them in the right direction without telling them what to get you. The last thing that you want is to appear to be demanding. Oh no, you want them to believe that they came up with this idea all themself. That way, it will feel all the more special and you can enjoy it even more. The key here is to drop small, subtle hints now and then and slowly (but surely) lead them to the conclusion that they simply must by you some lingerie!

Use social media to hint

What’s social media for if not hinting to your significant other? There are many ways in which you can use social media to let your partner know what you really want this year. For example, you could comment on pictures of lingerie and say how much you ‘LOVE’ them or that you think they are beautiful. Equally, you could start liking pages, such as the Mod by Parfait page on Facebook, and sharing your favorite things with your partner. You may find that your partner notices your interest in lingerie and takes note of it. After all, you may find that they have a good old stalk of you online when deciding what to get you for the holidays. Genius!

Be specific but not too specific

If you do want to go ahead and let your partner know that you want some lingerie, there’s an easy way to do it. Tell them. Of course, you don’t want to pick out the exact lingerie set that you hope to get. No, you need to make sure that they have a chance to make their mark on your gift as well. That means that you need to be a tad vague and give your partner a chance to choose something that they think is special. For example, you could all-out tell your partner that you just adore the Sweetheart range of Mod products. That way, they will know what style you’re after, without you having told them just what to get.

Talk about your favorite lingerie

Question time: How often do you actually talk about your love of lingerie? You may have a deep, real love for glorious underwear pieces, but if you never tell your partner, they will never know. Despite what you may have thought up until now, your partner is not a mindreader. Sorry to break it to you! Start talking more and more about why you happen to like lingerie. You may want to go into detail about how wearing a fancy new bra makes you feel and why you value that so very much. These are things that your partner may not know — so go ahead and tell them.

Browse online together

You likely already browse online all by yourself, but why not make this a cute couple activity? Your partner will enjoy getting to know how you choose your bras and what style you like. What’s more, the whole experience can be utterly exciting too, which is a major bonus. Introduce this idea subtly. You need to be clear that you’re just looking ‘for inspiration’ so that your partner doesn’t get all suspicious about your motives. That’s the very last thing that you need right now. Perhaps when the two of you are just relaxing together, you could ask them if they want to take a look with you. Make it something of a game. You never know, it may be a whole load of fun!

Make sure they know your sizes

Think about it. How can your partner possibly get you lingerie if they don’t know your size? It could be tricky. Sure, they might guess and they might even be right, but what are the chances of that? If you want some lingerie this festive season, you need to let your partner know what bra size you are. Go into as much detail as you can — let them know all about your band size, your cup size, and even your sister sizing. It could all be vital information. Now, getting these details across may be a difficult feat; you don’t want it to seem too pushy. So, just tell your partner that you’re letting them know for ‘future reference’. You could even leave a few of your bras out so he can make note of the size. Leave it at that and let them piece the puzzle together.

Who knows, you may find that your partner picks something unique that’s just ideal for you!
