All The Trimmings

I’ve mentioned La Vie En Rose a few times this holiday season – read about their snuggly onesies and cozy fleece robe – but honestly there were SO many amazing gift ideas this season I thought it’d be fun to highlight a bunch of them at once. This year, I’m highlighting gift ideas that start with more covered up choices for those folks on your list where snuggly is more apropos than sexy, but rest assured, the further down you go, the more scintillating the picks!

La Vie En Rose PJ SetsPJ Gift Sets – $34.95 each
If you want to purchase a set of cute PJs, you really needn’t look any further than La Vie En Rose’s boundless racks. Although there are many, many varieties (flannel, cotton, ‘mink’ – take your pick) I loved the graphic style of these matching top and bottom sets. I’m actually showing off two different styles above – the two in the middle both feature flurry-printed pants and a henley-style top, while the two on the end both feature simple scoopnecks with printed pants – but the general conceit is the same. Cute. Comfortable. And appropriate for virtually every lady on your list – from your mother-in-law to your wife to your teenage daughter.

La Vie En Rose Sherpa RobeSherpa Robe – $49.95
A robe is amongst the most practical sleepwear picks you can give a woman. After all, unlike frilly underthings or even PJs, chances are she’ll be donning it almost every single day, whether after a shower or draped around her during breakfast with the fam. However, just because it’s practical, doesn’t mean it has to be plain. La Vie En Rose carries some of the plushest, prettiest robes on the market – with sumptuous materials that hold up after washing and a variety of cuts and colours to suit your giftee’s lifestyle. My personal pick? The sweet and snuggly short hooded Sherpa Robe. Available in both white and black, this is just the thing to wrap yourself in while reading a book by the fire. Honestly? It’s basically like donning a wearable blanket. The only downfall, dudes, is she might not need to cuddle up to you when she’s got this cute robe on.

La Vie En Rose Dreamy Sweater and Fleece Pants‘Dreamy’ Shawl Collar Sweater – $39.95 + Jogging Pants – $29.95
So, I actually own these two pieces. The day they arrived, it was bitterly cold outside and I’d actually spent a bit of time out there. I can’t express to you what it felt like to slip on this duo of loungewear from La Vie En Rose. The top is the softest thing I’ve ever owned – I’m talking baby animal soft – and features a kangaroo pocket to warm up your fingers and a higher collar that’s not as restrictive as a turtleneck but warmer than a regular top (it also comes in black). The pants meanwhile, have quickly become my go-to, post-work lounge pants. They’re super comfortable, with a fleecy lining and chilled knit fabric on the outside. They also don’t make me feel too much like I’m wearing PJs (an issue with some loungewear I’ve found) so I actually feel like a functional human being after work. Honestly I love ’em so much, I’m tempted to order a backup pair for myself for when these ones get worn out! In the meantime, if you’re shopping for someone who isn’t a big PJ person but maybe also isn’t in the market for lingerie, La Vie En Rose still has plenty of lounge options for you to choose from.

La Vie En Rose Silky Satin GownSilky Satin Gown – $59.95 + Robe – $59.95
Some ladies just don’t ‘get’ lingerie. They either feel comically dressed up or maybe less confident in their bodies to bare it all. But that doesn’t mean you can’t bring a little drama and sex appeal into the bedroom in a more covert way. La Vie En Rose’s Luxury Collection features a rich red cherry blossom print alongside saucy black satin pieces that can be mixed and matched in a variety of ways to suit your giftee’s sleepwear tastes. If you want to go full on Dynasty glamazon, then I’d suggest this full-length nightgown and robe pairing (the gown also comes in black). But you can also scale it back a bit and opt for one of the collection’s shorter variations or more lingerie-minded pieces, like their merrywidow.

La Vie En Rose Holiday Velour Set
Holiday Velour Set – $49.95
Channel the ‘nice’ side of your Mrs. Claus persona with this winter white lingerie set. This cutesy two-piece set includes a velour bra and mini-skirt with adjustable garters, all topped off with a sparkly faux fur trim. It’s one of a few Santa’s missus pieces offered by LVER this year, including their mini hooded coat (also pictured above) and babydoll – which can be mixed and matched together. For those traditionalists however, you can go for a more classic red look to make this Christmas Eve one you both remember. It’s a nice compromise for those looking to add a little festive fun to their lingerie, but maybe aren’t quite comfortable with showing a ton of skin.

La Vie En Rose TeddyTeddy – $39.95
If you really want to spice things up, check out La Vie En Rose’s ‘Naughty‘ items on offer this holiday season. Case in point? this lace-and-beaded teddy that shows plenty of skin to get him excited. Available in both red and black, this sexy one-piece is spangled with rhinestones and strands of beads, and is a perfect gift for him to ‘unwrap’ after the guests have headed home. Of course, it’s just one of many items on offer this season – be sure to check out the brand’s full lineup of velvety bustiers, one-piece lace bodysuits, retro-inspired garters, and flirty nighties for plenty of after hours fun whilst Santa’s busy delivering his presents.

La Vie En Rose Mini BustierMini Bustier – $44.95 + Garter Boyleg – $24.95
And if what she really wants this holiday season is just some straight up lingerie, then you may want to check out this cute, retro-feeling polka dot set. La Vie En Rose recently launched Mini Bustiers, which offer a nice lift plus additional comfort and security without the rib-crushing feeling of a regular corset. This cute polka dot option can be paired with a gift-ready hipster, which I love because it’s the kind of thing you can wear under your everyday clothes but still feel sexy in when you’re spending some alone time with your spouse. If you want something a little more festive, you should also definitely check out the Lace Collection at La Vie En Rose – plenty of red, sparkly options are available to give your ‘trimmings’ a little holiday flare.
