February is right around the corner, and it's time to think about Valentine's Day gifts.
Will you buy your lady-love flowers, chocolates, or lingerie? Maybe you'll surprise her with all three.
Some traditional Valentine's Day gifts are easier to choose than others. Sending a dozen red roses is a classic way to show your affection. An assortment of rich chocolates in a pretty red heart-shaped box won't be turned away. But gifts of lingerie can be a bit trickier. There's a wider range of variables: like bra sizing, or complicated fashions, plus different price points. And spending more money doesn't guarantee she'll love what you bought or that it will be a perfect fit.
You can take some of the stress out of lingerie gift giving by following some simple rules: (1) embrace heart shapes or romantic color schemes; (2) look for one-size-fits-all or general sizing; and (3) choose simple and easy-to-wear, but feminine and flattering designs.
