The Prettiest Lingerie Gifts for the Bride-to-Be
Don’t weddings seem to come in waves? There are none for a while, and then suddenly you’re filling out a stack of RSVPs because your friend, your sister, your niece are all getting married at once.
While it’s not a struggle to find a nice wedding gift, presents for lingerie showers or bachelorette parties can be challenging. So many ideas seem cheesy or outdated, even crude. If you’re looking for something that’s chic, modern, and bridal-level special, consider this your shopping list.
1. Washable Silk
Yes, that’s a thing now! Not everyone likes lace, but who doesn’t like to look good and feel comfortable at the same time? Lunya has a clean modern look, and you can toss their silk pieces right into the washing machine - but they’re not cheap.
A classic set will run you $178, and they sell everything from gift sets to jumpsuits. You can also shop Lunyas at places like Madewell, J. Crew, and Goop - where you might be able to find a discount code or seasonal sale. If you use this link, you (and I) will get $20 towards a purchase through the Lunya website.
2. The Softest Pajamas & Chemises
Eberjey makes more classic designs in the softest stretch-cotton, and you can find them everywhere from a local lingerie shop to Nordstrom online. If you’re in last-minute rush, head to your closest store (check here!) and pick something up - but skip the typical pajamas in favor of a lace-trimmed chemise or romper.
3. A Sleep Mask
For the past few years, I’ve worn a sleep mask every night - it’s one of the things that helped me get back to better sleep! I also pack them for overnight flights and all my trips, which means I’ve lost a couple along the way.
All of mine have come from this Etsy shop, which has options from Breakfast at Tiffany’s eyelashes to monograms to “wake me for champagne” (all under $20). For a simpler style, try SlipSilk’s classic mask or this cozy cashmere one.
4. My Favorite Lace Bra
I’m a longtime customer of True & Co, and I recently bought my fourth Gramercy Balconette bra. It’s light, easy to wear, and comes in a handful of colors - plus I’ve never paid the full $64 price because they’re always running sales!
People also rave about the True Body line, and there are honestly so many good choices that a gift card to True & Co is not a bad idea. It’s certainly less generic than a department store, but still lets the bride choose what she wants for herself. If you use this link, you (and I) will get $15 towards a purchase.
5. A Nice Robe
There are robes that you wear, and then there are robes that you love to wear. BHLDN has some of the most bridal robes around, from floral to floor-length. Their classic silky ‘Reverie’ robe ($48) comes in nine colors. For something that strikes a balance between luxe and everyday, try this cozy ribbed robe or this refined modal one by Cuyana.
6. Lingerie Cases
It seems like we’ve collectively forgotten that lingerie cases exist, but they’re one of my favorite bridal gifts to give. Not only is it fancy - a pretty bag exclusively for your pretty lingerie - it’s also practical for packing and organizing. Seven years later, I still use mine on every single trip (thank you, Nana!).
There are so many options available, and lots of them are on Etsy. Just a sampling: antique french lace, custom monogram, natural linen. You’ll have to hunt a bit more to find them in shops, but I love this casual black-and-white one ($15) and these custom silk-and-monogram ones (starting at $75).
