Snowy, Sexy, Sleepy


PJs and Lingerie are a pretty great go-to gift for the holidays. Whether you’re wanting to treat your paramour to something sexy or give your best friend something snuggly to stay warm during our brrrrreeziest months, today’s lingerie shops are a goldmine for gift ideas. I checked out what Canadian retailer La Vie En Rose has going on, and I have to say, they’re definitely the most versatile for ideas. Whether you’re looking for look-at-me lingerie, ultra comfy PJs, or even gifts for guys, there’s a huge range of styles to suit every price point, style choices, and age.

And if you’re a little intimidated shopping in a lingerie store, La Vie En Rose feels very modern and comfortable, particularly if you’re a slightly antsy guy. It’s not in-your-face sexy posters all over the place; the lingerie speaks for itself. Best of all, whether you’re a guy OR a girl doing some gift shopping, most PJs are made for comfort, so guessing what that perfect fit is compared to a regular clothing store is much less of a challenge. Now. My job is to give you a head start by breaking down the main styles you’ll expect to find. Scope ’em out before you head into one of 150 stores across the nation and shopping will be that much less scary.

For The Sophisticated Snow Angel – Satin Robe Gift Set $49.95

Satin and lace and altogether luxurious, there’s a ton of mix and match pieces available in rich red, classic black, or striking marine blue for the gal that likes to go to bed feeling like she’s at the spa. Even when you’re fully covered up, there’s a hint of sultriness owing to the petal soft, slippery fabrics. My pick? This satin robe gift set which includes a dramatic low-back nightie and a cute kimono-style coverup for those lazy – wait, scratch that, luxe – weekend brunches at home. Bonus: it comes in its own box, making wrapping a cinch. Want to dial it up a notch? Check out the 100% silk items, including this pretty Cherry Blossom-inspired silk chemise.

For the Randy Reindeer: Oh Deer Sleepshirt – $19.95

Can we say bargain? La Vie En Rose has a line of sweet retro-inspired reindeer print nightshirts that come prewrapped and ready to give. This is a perfect choice if you’re on a tight budget for gifts for your friends or Secret Santa draws, and it’s suitable for pretty much anyone. You get to show a little leg, but stay comfy cozy up top as well.

For the Snuggly Santa’s Helper – Flannel PJ Gift Set $34.95

Let’s not kid ourselves. Our winters are cold. And nothing quite warms the soul (or the body) like a pair of uber snuggly flannel PJs opened on Christmas Eve. In which case, La Vie En Rose has dozens (literally) of patterns of colours, ranging from pretty pink snowflakes to charming animal prints of penguins and moose. I love these wintry ice blue ones that’ll feel festive well after the holidays are over. Consider snapping up a few bow-wrapped packages for your sisters, kids, or best friends.

For The Naughty Elf – Lace Frill Babydoll $39.95

On the opposite end of the spectrum from flannels, we’ve got La Vie En Rose’s signature boudoir-inspired lingerie, like this eye-popping lace babydoll set. It’s a perfect marriage of girly (ruffles and bows!) with sexy (lace and push-up!), which makes it an ideal pick for newlyweds, newly cohabitated, or those that are just plain ol’ crazy about each other.

For the (Disney) Ice Princess – Disney Couture Sleep Set

The new Disney Couture line with La Vie En Rose has literally just it the shelves – and it’s perfect for diehard Disney wannabe princesses. These super cute sleep sets are great for any age – tweens, teens, and adult ladies all love to indulge their throwback to childhood, and what better way to do so, in comfort? I’m loving this tribute to Minnie!

Now…did you notice anything about the items I picked? How about the fact they’re all under $50? You wanna know why? Cause I’ve got a $50 gift card to La Vie En Rose + a satin eye mask for one lucky grand prize winner. PLUS I’ve got four pretty in pink satin eye masks like the one pictured above to giveaway. So here’s the score – one person will walk away with a gift card and mask, the other four runner-ups will have sweet slumbers with just the sleep mask. Here’s how to enter, and pay attention, cause I’m shaking things up a bit:

1) To win one of the sleep masks, leave a comment below before December 4th and tell me what your personal sleep style is, using the five themes outlined above. Gentlemen, simply share your preference. Be sure to include your name and email address (the latter of which only I can see) so I can contact you if you win!

2) Entries are limited to one per person per email address (or more if you score bonus entries). A random draw will be conducted on or around December 4th to select the winner, who will have 48 hours to respond before another winner is chosen in their place.

3) Entries are limited to Canadians that have reached the age of majority in their province. Quebec is not eligible to participate in this promotion.

4) To be eligible for the grand prize of a $50 gift card + eye mask, you must ‘like’ La Vie En Rose on Facebook OR you must follow them on Twitter (@_La_Vie_en_Rose). If you do both, you’ll earn two entries. To confirm your eligibility – let me know which things you do in the comments below, including dropping your Twitter handle in the comments. I’ll be following up with the folks at LVER, although I know you’re a trustworthy bunch!

For full rules & regs, feel free to drop me an email at canadiangiftguide -at- gmail -dot- com. Warm and snuggly wishes to you all!

THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED – THANKS FOR ENTERING!
