Valentine’s Day will be here in just a few days! The official day for lovers is the occasion to surprise your precious someone with a gift they'll truly love. Whether you're looking for Valentine’s day gifts for him or Valentine’s Day gifts for her, our handy edit rounds up top tips on picking the perfect underwear for your other half.
Buying underwear for your special someone might raise a ton of questions. What size should I get? Which style is best? Will my gift be appreciated? This romantic gesture can appear challenging to some, but fear not, Boody friends. Here’s a little selection of classic intimates we've decoded for you.
Give the gift of comfort with simple underwear
How to choose undies as a gift
Two things should always be remembered when gifting new underwear: they should be comfortable and stylish. Choosing simple and comfortable underwear for your other half will fast track you to a happy Valentine's Day.
We’re often tempted to focus on buying sexy lingerie for our Valentine, but it’s not necessarily what will receive the best response. In reality, people enjoy wearing simple undergarments close to their skin. Their softness and delicate aspect make them really enjoyable to wear. That’s why giving the gift of comfort will naturally always impress. Especially when you thoughtfully select eco garments that are safe for your loved one and good for the environment.
Bamboo underwear: who for?
Is your loved one active and always on the go? Bamboo underwear is the perfect alternative to accompany them in their busy everyday life. From gentle walks in the park to long runs or even intense gym sessions, the breathability and thermo-regulating properties of bamboo are sure to be appreciated! Bamboo underwear also helps diminish the risk of irritations and are ideal for dry and sensitive skin, making it a thoughtful gift anyone can enjoy.
Eco fabrics using organic raw materials such as organically-grown bamboo and which are ethically produced are becoming more and more popular. Their growing success is a guarantee, so no need to hesitate, eco undies will ensure you have the perfect Valentine's Day!

Sleek & Comfy - The Men's Boxer
Finding the right undies for a man is a very private and personal decision. Worn right onto the skin, you want to choose a garment and fit that will ensure perfect comfort all day long. Many men tend to use the same underwear for a variety of activities so it’s important to choose a fabric, such as bamboo viscose, which offers 4-way stretch and enough support for physical activities.

Elegant & Supportive - The Men’s Briefs
Perfect for every day and dressing up, the men’s briefs have less coverage than the boxer shorts and have the advantage of giving men a longer leg. With more support and less chance to ride up, these bad boys are great under tighter pants and when you sit a lot.

Soft & Feather-like - The Shaper Crop Bra
Forget that you’re wearing a bra with this feather-like bralette. It can easily double up as a sports bra for any low impact workouts like walking, stretching or yoga. Planning on taking a trip? Slip it into your lover’s suitcase for optimum comfort during your travels. The moisture-wicking properties of bamboo will let her skin breathe during your escapades.
Supportive & Enhancing - The Padded Shaper Crop Bra
Smaller chests will love the push-up effect of the padded bra, or if your loved one has a bigger bust they’ll enjoy the extra support. Bras are usually a nightmare to buy for a man, but unlike others, our stretchy bras are very forgiving, which means it’s much easier for you to pick the right size too.
Sexy & Pragmatic - The G-String
Offering the least amount of coverage, our classic g-string will enhance bouncy bums! Also very practical, the g-string is a discrete solution to wear under your clothes to avoid unflattering marks – a wardrobe staple for any woman.
