Playful Valentine's Day Gift Guide

Whether you're loved-up or your love life's lackluster, V-Day is coming and you can't escape it. Either way, stay away from those fuzzy cutesy teddies holding hearts saying "I Wuv You", pre-written cards with heartfelt, cheesy poems, and boxes of Cadbury's Milk Trays and get your beau - or yourself - something they/you actually want this Valentine's with our gift guide!

Which ever way you see Valentine's - a day or romance, or another money-grabbin' holiday - let's not deny the importance of showing love for others, and most importantly yourself. Any day with an excuse to either buy and wear pretty lingerie and get loved-up is alright by us. We have pieces for every kind of beau this year:


1. The Retro Romantic

If your beau is into retro style and a total sweetheart, the Bettie Page Ostritch Feather Babydoll is the ideal gift! Just pink and fluffy enough to be cute, and sheer enough to be a little sexy. The babydoll comes in sizes UK8-18, and as it's nightwear you can be a little lenient on the sizing if you're not totally sure. Your boo will also appreciate something comfortable to wear after a big V-Day dinner! If you really want to spoil them (or yourself), pair with the Peach Corsolette for a super-sweet peachy pairing! 


2. The Vintage Vixen

If your lover leans towards the sexier style of lingerie, and Bettie Page is their style icon, then the Bettie Page Eyelash Lace set is perfect. It also has a matching suspender belt which you can pair with our authentic Fully Fashioned stockings to complete the look. Perfect for a little surprise underneath a fitted dress if you want to do a big reveal at the end of the night!


3. Sparkle-Loving Sex Kitten

For babes with a penchant for gold and sparkly things! The Karine is ultra-feminine, but not too cutesy if your beau is a little on the sultry side. This set is available across our entire size range, so no stress about finding something for yourself or your partner's tricky size! Adorned with velvet bows, this set is a real showstopper.


4. The Fashion-Forward Fancy

If bae is all about current trends and a lover of simple styling, then the Betsy set is ideal! The soft triangle bra ensures comfort and perfect for those with petite busts or like non-wired bras for lounging. The detachable harness can be used to enhance any outfit, making this set transitional from underwear to outerwear. 


5. The Sexy Squeeze

And finally, something ultra-sexy, in a red-hot colourway and adored with eyelash lace, the Tamara Rust is an absolute perfect set for Valentine's! Ideal for a naughty night in, the Tamara features the perfect amount of strappy detail and is available across our size range.
