The Playful Christmas Gift Guide

Buying gifts for your loved ones definitely is not easy! With the oncoming pressure of looming Christmas shipping deadlines, choc-a-bloc shopping centers and the dreaded Christmas carolers; before you know it you've panic-bought your girlfriend a poo emoji-shaped cushion. However fear not - sit back and relax, because we're making it super easy for you this year with the ultimate Playful gift buying guide.


Sizing is probably one of the trickiest aspects of gift-buying. Luckily, even without knowing someone's specific size you can still buy them something sweet or sultry. We'd suggest our eye masks as a cute stocking filler, or a small gift. For something a little naughtier, go for our pasties. Both of these are already lovingly presented in gift boxes with black tissue paper - so no stress about wrapping nicely! If eye masks and pasties just won't do, we also have gift cards which can either be in card form or in an email!

If you have a slightly better idea about sizing (psst, take a look at the labels on your recipient's favourite skirts or trousers), then our gift tins are a cute option. With a choice of 3 tins and knicker pairings, it's easy to pick something to suit whoever you're buying for. The tins are beautifully illustrated with some adorable knickers inside. Another easy-sizing option is any of our nightwear. The Lucinda (shown below) in particular is a sensual option in luxurious wine red satin, perfect for winter nights.

Even if you think you know the recipient's size, these can still differ throughout brands and styles, so there's a chance the item may not fit. However, we do accept returns and exchanges (with items unworn), and for all orders purchased from the 24th November until the 24th December will be offered an extended returns period until the 12th January. So you can buy with confidence!


It's important to keep in mind who you're buying for! It's recommended not to buy erotic lingerie for the new romance in your life unless you are 100% sure they're going to appreciate it! Ouvert knickers or a cupless bra might be a bit much for that third date. However, this doesn't mean lingerie is a total no-go. Sticking to simpler, trend-led styles could be a great alternative. Keep in mind the person's personal style, and what things they already like wearing. Something fun like the Anna might be a cute option for and sparkle-loving person in your life!

Gift Wrapping

Terrible at wrapping? Do you use entire rolls of sellotape or even go as far as wrapping gifts in tin foil (I promise, I've seen that happen)? Then don't worry, because we also offer gift wrapping for a mere £3! Simply add it to your cart along with your gifts.

Shipping Dates

Don't get caught out! Shipping dates and information about delivery during the festive period can all be found here:
