Hello, gorgeous! The festive season is fast approaching and I don’t know about you, but I’m definitely in the mood to celebrate after last year’s lockdown nightmare! For my 2021 Christmas Gift Guide For Boudoir Lovers, I’ve included a whole list of boudoir themed gifts to cover everything from stocking fillers to grand gestures.
Ps. Don’t forget, if you’re ordering signed prints or copies of STRIP/TEASE there’s 25% off until October 31st 2021. This means there’ll be a little more left in the bank to treat yourself with after your Christmas shopping is complete!
£10 – A Pair Of Stockings
Is there any better stocking filler than an actual Pair Of Stockings? From illusion tights to fully fashioned stockings, Playful Promises have something to suit every taste. My personal favourites are these Bettie Page Leopard Knit Stockings, and yes, I’m accepting secret Santa gifts this year…
£15 – Signed Pinup Print
Know someone who’s curating a wall of fame in their home? Why not contribute to the cause and buy them a Pinup Print. My online shop features a range of international pinups including Felicity Furore, Betsy Rose, Jolie Papillon, Blossom&Buttercups, Miss Victory Violet and Penny Heartbleed. You can also find several signed prints of yours truly.
£30 – Suspender Clasp Choker by Karolina Laskowska
Although award-winning independent lingerie designer Karolina Laskowska is no longer shipping to the UK post-Brexit, there’s still a chance to get your hands on a little bit of magic as her Suspender Clasp Choker is available at Harlow and Fox. An adjustable band of smooth strapping fastened with either a silver or gold plated hook allows for the perfect fit, with symmetrical rings and suspender clasps giving a subtle nod towards your lingerie addiction. Available in Black/Gold, White/Gold and Black/Silver.
£50 – STRIP/TEASE
Buying for a book lover? How about a copy of STRIP/TEASE – my award-winning coffee table book! Within the book’s 144 pages, you’ll find over 50 never-seen-before images that have been shot exclusively for this book, alongside a selection of beautiful images from my archives that represent my favourite moments of my career so far. Giving a voice to the burlesque community, it also includes anecdotes from the performers themselves, telling us what brought them to the stage and why burlesque means so much to them as an art form.
£80 – Fancy Boudoir Bedding (Options up To £105)
If you want to treat someone to a gift for their upcoming boudoir shoot, but lingerie shopping feels way out of your comfort zone, why not treat them to some luxe bedding to compliment their outfit! The Paoletti Palmeria Gold Embroidered Reversible Duvet Cover and Pillowcase Set from Dunelm features luxe embroidery on soft, sumptuous velvet fabric, this bedding set is perfect for adding a luxe feel to any boudoir setting. Available in a range of colourways. And yes, I’d love this in Double King size if you’re asking!
£100 – A Boudoir Gift Voucher
If you know someone who is currently saving for a boudoir shoot with me, why not give their savings fund a boost and purchase them a Boudoir Gift Voucher. With denominations from £100 listed in the shop, all digital gift cards are instantly downloadable (which happened to make them perfect for last-minute gift giving too (it will be our little secret!). Custom amounts above £100 are also available on request, email me to enquire.
£150 – Miss Vivienne Lingerie Set
Looking for an eco-conscious lingerie brand to support this Christmas? How about investing in a Miss Vivienne Lingerie Set. Based in the Scottish Borders, they create beautiful handmade-to-order lingerie that is not only inclusive in sizing but also eco-conscious in production, using elastic, components and printed materials sustainably sourced from either local Border based suppliers or UK stockists to support the other UK small businesses. Even their packaging is 100% recyclable right down to the packing tape! My personal favourite is Ginger (and I am accepting gifts of Alexis!)
£250 – Rosie Red Robe (Options up to £450)
Floody robes are still the item du jour for my boudoir clients right now – and if you’re looking for a great UK based designer, look no further than Rosie Red. Made from gorgeous tulle and organza, the Rosie Red Robes are show stoppers to make you feel fabulous. And, as all robes are made to measure in Rosie’s UK studio, they can be made for all body shapes and types. There are currently 6 beautiful signature fabrics to choose from, with options and add ons up to £450. I’ve got my eye on the embroidered robe with extra ruffle.
£385 – Boudoir Makeover Day
Know someone that has been hinting hard about a boudoir shoot? Monday 14th February, Monday 30th May and Tuesday 31st May 2022 I’ll be returning to my most requested shoot location in London, Fontaine’s Bar. With very limited places, the majority of my vintage makeover days sell out within a couple of days, so don’t delay in booking your place. During a three-hour photoshoot experience, our guest will be pampered to perfection with vintage hairstyling by my resident stylist Kate Roe, complemented by flawless makeup from award-winning makeup artist Ms Moo Make Up. They will then slip into their favourite outfit and spend an hour with me, Tigz Rice, capturing all their most flattering angles within the beautiful surroundings of Fontaine’s.
£450 – Boudoir Masterclass
Shopping for a ‘behind the camera’ type of boudoir fan? On Wednesday, January 26th 2022, I will be bringing back my Art Of Boudoir Photography Masterclass for its sixth year. The masterclass is perfect for someone looking to add boudoir to their repertoire of photography skills. Proving popular with seasoned portrait and wedding photographers who want to offer an additional service, the masterclass also attracts photography enthusiasts who are excited by the world of boudoir and want to experience a shoot under the guidance and support from a leading industry professional.
EARLY BIRD DISCOUNT AVAILABLE UNTIL 31ST OCTOBER 2021
£500 – A 2 Night Stay in a Fancy Hotel
Potentially a treat for you too! How about gifting a two-night stay in a fancy hotel? Not only is it a great excuse for a little escapism after the festive season, but it could also be tied in nicely with an afternoon boudoir shoot followed by a night on the town. You arrange the location, my stylists and I will meet you there…
£750 – Studio Pia Set
So here’s another eco-conscious luxury lingerie brand that I can wholeheartedly recommend – and perfect if you’re not quite sure of your significant lover’s sizing. Studio Pia offer adjustability throughout each and every piece they create: from their bra backs, which have an adjustability range of 10cm to fit across three band sizes, to suspenders and bottoms – which all have a range of at least two dress sizes – reducing the chances of having to return or exchange. It also allows for weight fluctuations, extending the life of the garment. Isn’t that amazing? You can thank me for the recommendation later!
£795+ – Boudoir Shoot with Tigz
And now for the ultimate showstopping gift on my 2021 Christmas Gift Guide For Boudoir Lovers. Want to truly spoil someone this festive season? Gift them a boudoir shoot with me! Boudoir photography provides an opportunity to celebrate their body by creating beautiful, sophisticated and timeless images that will preserve those ‘wow, I look and feel incredible!’ memories for years to come. Whichever pronouns they prefer, the privilege for me is that it’s in my power to make them feel empowered, confident, strong and sexy as hell; whether they want to mark a life milestone, reward a personal achievement or simply document their fabulous self in all their glory.
