Have You Made Your List and Checked It Twice?: Holiday Shopping in DC
With the holidays right around the corner it’s the perfect occasion to give the gift of intimates. When it comes to shopping for presents, there are two types of people. One kind of person is on top of it all, with lists written out and shopping already started, if not already finished. The other kind, will only remember to shop for gifts the week before gifts are due to be exchanged, and will wind up dashing about in a mad frenzy, ultimately giving gift-wrapped printouts containing tracking information because the gifts did not arrive in time. No matter what category of holiday shopper you fall into, if you’re doing some holiday shopping in DC, we’ve got you covered.
“BUT I DON’T KNOW WHAT SIZE BRA SHE WEARS.”
Not to worry, there’s a lot more to lingerie than bras and panties. Why not surprise your special someone with something a little different? There certainly is a lot to choose from.

The next installment of the Fifty Shades trilogy isn’t due for a few more months, but feel free to plan a night in with this bondage-inspired basque.

This Flamenco Red knee-length chemise is a great pick for anyone on your naughty or nice list.
