Wrapping of Lingerie - Easy Insider Tips To Get It Right

Wrapping of Lingerie - Ok, so you’ve just bought your sweetheart the most beautiful lingerie and you can't wait to give it to them.  Did you know the presentation is almost as important as the gift itself?

The wrapping of lingerie can be great fun!

Whether it’s a beautiful bra and panty set for a special occasion like an anniversary, a luxurious lace chemise for St Valentines Day, or the ever popular Christmas nightgown and matching robe for your sweetie, you can never underestimate the impact of beautifully wrapped lingerie.

Want to trade ordinary for amazing? No worries - you're almost there.

From choosing the best wrapping to adding your own creative twist to beautiful lingerie, we share how to make it a magical moment your sweetie will brag about for years to come.

Wrapping of Lingerie - What to Avoid

While bland and boring wrapping paper technically gets the job done it’s not remotely fun and definitely fails the yummy test. For starters, here are the things to avoid:

  • wrapping of lingerie in anything plain or basic like a grocery bag
  • wrapping paper left over from your child’s birthday party
  • the plastic bag that it came in
  • an old shoebox
  • a brown paper lunch bag
  • duct tape under any circumstances
  • no wrapping

Carmen's Tip

Never use gift wrap that has been previously used or recycled! It might seem like a good idea to you at the time, but it isn't - especially when it comes to intimate apparel.

The gift of intimate apparel is a wonderful way to say how much you care,

The Wrapping Basics

Ok, so far so good - we’ve covered the basics on what to avoid. Now, on to the fun ways to gussy up a gorgeous gift.

If you’re more of a traditionalist when it comes to wrapping or you simply don’t have a lot of time to spare, tissue paper is a quick and easy way to make beautiful lingerie look magical.

Tissue usually comes in generous and inexpensive pre-packs of virtually every color and print that you can possibly imagine, so don’t be shy about using it.

Opt for their favorite color (they'll notice), or a shade that complements the lingerie. Line the box or bag with plenty of paper for a decadent look.

Wrapping Tip

Gifting sleepwear? Here's a great tip. Arrange it in a pretty manner...then fold the excess tissue paper over it. A gold or silver foil sticker, or a pretty ribbon is a nice finishing touch and a great way to zhuzh up a classic chemise nightgown.

More insider tips:

  • Want a glamorous look? Opt for gold, silver, or pearlized tissue, boxes, bags, and wrapping for a look that says luxurious
  • Choose wrapping paper with a feminine theme...a soft pretty floral gift wrap, or paper in her favorite color is best
  • Traditional feminine wrapping of lingerie colors include lilac and lavender, pale pink, baby blue, and pale silver
Long silk nightgowns with contrasting lace are a timeless look that never goes out of style.
  • If your sweetheart loves bold colors (take a peek in her wardrobe for ideas), then don't be afraid to go bold and choose richer tones like deep velvet red or yummy royal purple
  • Want something special? Consider one of the classics, like two-tone black with white or coffee colored lace long silk nightgowns - a timeless look that never goes out of style
