The HerRoom Gift Guide, Decoded

Jacqueline Wells

Each holiday season, we spend sleepless nights trying to crack the perfect gift code. But shopping for that special someone shouldn’t be daunting. After all, a little lingerie goes a long way come holiday time, so we devised a cheat sheet full of categories that each of your gal pals is bound to fall into. Stick with us. We got this covered.


The Sex Kitten: Meow! She’s daring, seductive and provocative. For her, naughty trumps nice, and she’ll be purring at her new Hanky Panky Peek-A-Boo Open Bralette Bra and matching Crotchless Brief. Other pieces she’d love include an L’Agent by Agent Provocateur Mariona Garter Belt, Trixie G-string and Open Bra that makes for a super sexy look. For a stocking stuffer, try our very own The Kissing Book (even though she’s already a pro).


The Girly Girl: For your friend who is always perfectly put together and appreciates all the bells, bows and whistles that come with being a woman. A Graphic Brushed Terry Sleepshirt by Kate Spade fuses her sense of innocence with comfort and will pair well with a PJ Salvage Cozy Slipper. For her more coquettish evenings, the Cosabella Dolce Soft Bra and Low Rise Bikini Panty is that perfect fusion of sexy and sweet.


The Fitness Fanatic: She’d rather be kickboxing than shopping, so why not get her functional lingerie she can use for her next Bikram yoga class? Under Armour’s assortment of gifts – from the Gym Hair Strappy Tank to the Favorite Fleece ColdGear Watermark Popover Hoodie – are the perfect items to take her from the gym to lunch. A tasc Ta Ta for Now Mid-Impact Studio Sports Bra will have her feeling supported in style.


The Jet Setter: She’s global, chic and always on the go. For her, the international style of Wolford is always a win, whether a Satin Stocking Belt, the classic Affaire 10 Stockings or the Sheer Touch thong and bra. Otherwise, nightwear by La Perla is always appropriate whether in Paris or Milan.


Flirty Fashionista: She’s on-trend and the first to rock the must-have boot of the season. For this front row regular, opt for the Piper Longline bra and brief by Cleo by Panache, or Le Mystere’s Convertible T-Shirt bra for that rocker white tee she pairs with vintage jeans. She’ll likely work it under a shag vest by PJ Salvage for a day-to-night look.


The Homebody: She’s happiest when she’s on a Netflix binge. For our beloved couch potato, La Perla’s New Project Long Sleeve Tee, as well as a cozy hoodie and pant by PJ Salvage with Uggs Dakota slippers will have her feeling all dressed up with nowhere to go.


World’s Greatest Grandma: Gram is the greatest, and the holidays are a time to show it. While wrapping presents for Junior, she’ll love a Holiday Bliss Caftan PJ Set by Ellen Tracy to pair over Ugg Cozy Chenile Socks. For the ultimate in advanced style, Natori’s Dynasty Zip Caftan is a whimsical take on her everyday pieces.


Mom-to-Be: Your glowing goddess will appreciate practical items that will be useful during the nine months and beyond. Bravado’s Dream Full Support Nursing Tank will provide easy access for feeding come baby time, and Hue’s Cozy Toes Slipper Socks will be the coziest necessity in her hospital bag.
