The holiday season is officially upon us – and now that we’re officially allowed to use the C word (Christmas!) it’s time to deliver my annual list of boudoir inspired Christmas gift idea. As always, there’s a wide scope of price points included, mixing a few of my offerings in with some amazing small businesses. This year, there are also some treats for photographers too! Feel free to use this list as inspiration, or stealth drop a link into the DMs of someone else that might appreciate a heavy hint.
Seamed Stockings from What Katie Did – £12 – I know I say it every year, but the perfect mini stocking filler is stockings! What Katie Did offer a wide range of rainbow-coloured contrast seamed stockings, which now come in a small variety of skin tones too, so you can pretty much find a pair to suit any outfit. Available in sizes S/M, M/L and Curve.
Signed Pinup Print – £15 – Ever considered creating your own wall of fame? Display your love for pinups proudly with some signed prints from my online print store. Featuring Felicity Furore, Betsy Rose and Blossom&Buttercups to name just a few, you can also find signed copies of yours truly within the collection.

Annual Flower Subscription – £250 – Deliver a beautiful bouquet of seasonal joy into someone’s boudoir each month during 2023, with a flower subscription from their favourite florist.
