Every year men struggle with finding the perfect gift for their lover. Do we need to buy diamonds, perfume, chocolate, Swarovski or Marc Jacobs shoes? And the fun part is: the ladies are never satisfied with the present you give them. They always have something different in mind or they always expect a certain thing for the holidays. That’s why the best way to know what women want for the holidays is to pay attention during shopping.
Just watch how they look at an object or how their eyes sparkle when they show you how something looks. So it’s actually pretty easy, the only downside is: you have to endure the pain of walking in and out of shops. My misses is privileged to have a man who doesn’t mind to go shopping with her. But the fact that she is a speed shopper does help a lot.
For men who don’t like shopping I advise you to take your woman to a department store. Here you have all sorts of products at one spot and you don’t have to drag yourself in and out of shops all the time. I always love to go to De Bijenkorf. And this year Holland’s biggest department store made it extra easy for men to shop for their leading ladies. Because internationally acclaimed lingerie queen Marlies Dekkers designed an exclusive Christmas collection for De Bijenkorf (available December 1st, that’s today!).
The whole collection is divided into separate groups: women, men, children, living and food. This years Christmas collection theme is ‘Secrets’. Previous designers and artists who have created special collections for De Bijenkorf are Viktor & Rolf and Marcel Wanders. I really think it’s an interesting choice to work with Marlies Dekkers. The highlights of the collection are (of course) the lingerie set (this always works.. for both parties ;)), the smoking (probably my new Christmas outfit) and lots of great goodies for your home interior.
I think I’m going to follow my own advice and choose the easy way to find the perfect Christmas gift for my misses. Because it’s going to be an extreme cold winter and I really don’t want to walk in and out of shops right now. Or maybe it’s a good idea to visit the online shop.
Happy holidays everyone!
