Maybe your friend is a bride-to-be this holiday season or you want to fill your significant other's stocking with fun lingerie picks, because why not? Or maybe you're just browsing for holidays gifts for yourself (hey, us too!). Whatever your situation, we've got a gift set that's perfect for you! Whether you're buying someone a practical favourite, something sexy, or something a little unexpected, leave your nerves at the door with underwear expert Kimmay Caldwell. Watch the video clip above for her top gift selections and advice on how to pick and gift lingerie the right way.
If you're giving a sexy set of lingerie, remember to make sure they want to wear it and it's not just for you, it's the right size so they feel really awesome in it. Be sure to gift it in private if it's especially saucy like this darling chemise or you think it's private to them.
We love this luxurious and elegant piece from the Rya Collection. This gorgeous chemise features a lightweight charmeuse fabric with lace details that hugs the sides of your body. And if you really want to go all out, match it with this all-lace coordinating cover-up. Both are available in sizes XS-3X.
A note to gift-givers: we can't tell you how happy it will make someone if you buy them four to five of their favourite, well-fitting bras. Most women leave their basic bras and underwear all the way at the bottom of their priority list. Support your favourite woman in your life with something comfortable and easy to wear with anything! To find out what they like, just ask! Find out their favourite shop and brand to guide you on picking something they will love.
This wire-free bra from Miel is so cozy and easy to gift because of the stretch and it can fit a range of sizes! Made of super-soft, seamless and breathable microfiber and spandex blend, this bra also features an extra fresh Guardin built-in botanical antimicrobial protection against stains and odours. Get the right fit every time with this Canadian-based and ethically made brand!
Who doesn't love getting the gift of comfort? A robe is such a great gift because it's so easy to get the right size.
This Fleur't iconic robe is all comfort without the bulk thanks to their super-soft modal technology, so it's easy to pack. Mix and match to add a touch of support with their Lace Strap Camisole. Soft and subtle, this cami is made of cloud-soft, eco-friendly fabric. Paired with their award-winning boyshorts designed with feminine curves in mind, you'll be comfy and festive all season long.
This is the time of year to gift something above and beyond—and that goes for lingerie, too!
Modern meets vintage in this timeless Keyhole Balconette design designed to delicately enhance your décolletage. The two-toned neutral floral lace offers an air of romantic nostalgia while the cups are lined with mesh for support and shape. The straps are shiny and adjustable for comfort and include a gold ring detail at the front, and lace detailing at the back.
Pair the bra with matching panties, either a Brazilian panty style or high-waisted briefs, to really bring the whole assemble together!
If you're shopping for the practical one in your life, you're most likely looking for something that they really need. These warm leggings and top from Elita are so cozy and silky sheen to the touch—plus they can be worn out or underneath outfits. The leggings are treated with Interna warm fabric to provide all-day comfort and protection against the cold. They are also resistant to odour and bacteria. Wear them as leggings with a tunic dress, or under your pants on cold days to go skiing, snowboarding, or any winter activity! The top has a unique ruched neckline so it can stay close to the body for ultra-warmth but also allow for movement.
You may be wondering why soap is on this list, but hear us out! Owned by an amazing Canadian woman, Soak is the best soap to care for your bras, hosiery, swimwear, knits, and more. They keep your clothes looking great, lasting longer and their scents are super delicious! This year, they've bundled up an assortment of six small bottles of Soak laundry soup with super-cute charms, perfect gifts for the babysitter, teacher, your colleagues, or stuffed them into everyone's stocking.

After coming on the Marilyn show to get fitted for a maternity bra, Jessica created her own line of luxury lace bra tape and My Perfect Pair was born! This year for the holiday season, they brought out a special ivory lace tape and Va Voom Strips which can be used to shape or add additional coverage. With a medical-grade adhesive back, this tape is strong enough to support small to very full cup sizes. It's great as a gift because each size can fit several bra sizes, so there's no need to worry about band sizes. This tape is a must for all your holiday outfits, from low-back dresses to plunging necklines to strapless or one-shoulder pieces.
Now for a full circle gift! You might remember when I shared My Perfect Pair earlier this year, that its creator, Jessica was on the show years ago when I fit her for a maternity bra. The experience was so uplifting that she created her own line of luxury lace bra tape and I shared it on the show this year!
