Ok, so I’m guessing there are probably people out there thinking, “who buys their family gifts from a lingerie store?” But if you haven’t figured it out yet, Lille isn’t your typical place for underpinnings. Yes, we have the sexy/strappy/lacy stuff you wouldn’t dare imagine your elderly aunt wearing, but we also have a broad range of classic and comfortable pieces for all ages. Trust us—we shop for our mothers and sisters and in-laws here all the time! Just follow along and we’ll make sure that instead of unwrapping embarrassing moments under the tree, your gift will be her favorite go-to for years to come.
One of the best routes to go with family gifts is the cozy one. Pajamas, robes, leggings, chemises—you can’t go wrong with something for around the house, especially if it’s going to replace the ugly, ripped up version they’ve been wearing for years and years. For example, if your mom has been ‘borrowing’ your dad’s oversized bathrobe for 20 years, why not get her the chic Cotton Terry or Hooded Terry Robe from Skin as an upgrade? They’ll both be grateful.
Eberjey is another amazing brand for cozy wear: their Gisele and Sleep Chic pajama sets have been Lille best-sellers for years, and their wide assortment of lounge pieces can’t be beat (we particularly love the Ramona and Sadie Stripes groups this season). For something a little less casual, but still family-appropriate, go with a pretty robe like the Cecilia or Hope options.
Aside from loungewear, we think a few pair of nice-quality basic undies can be a great gift. The TEN ones come in a cute little envelope, perfect as a little add-on. And you can’t go wrong with colorful tights like the Opaque ones from Tabbisocks either.
You probably know these women better than anyone, so just go with your gut when picking out your presents. And if they’re impossible to shop for (as some family members tend to be, we know), a gift card always works wonders!
