UNB Holiday-5

When you think of Holiday gifts, underwear is given a bad wrap. Remember when we would hurriedly run down and open our presents on Christmas Day and you’d eventually get to that present with underwear and go UGH, and throw it aside and try to forget it? Flash forward to know and I think just about every one reading this blog would love to get underwear! But the question is would you give underwear as a gift?

Underwear is one of the most personal gifts you can give someone. So many people won’t buy underwear for their friends, usually just their boyfriend/husband. Giving it to a friend could send a wrong message to them, since it’s not a regular thing to give anyone outside of dating. But, what if you want underwear for Christmas? How do you go about getting underwear? We have suggestions:

  1. Come right out and tell your friends that you want underwear. Why hide that you are an underwear fanatic? Tell them what you like and create a wish list on one of your favorite sites. Amazon has exploded in men’s underwear and is easer to get friends to go there to buy something rather than an underwear site.
  2. Start talking about underwear to your friends. If you’re a straight guy this could be harder to do. I was having a discussion with Jon on the site. How he wished it was easier for him to be more open about undies. Mention how you used to hate getting undies and now you’d love it now. They may not get the hint, but you never know! I think gay guys would be more incline to  buy a friend underwear, than a straight guy.
  3. If you have friends you know won’t buy you underwear or you find it hard to bring up the subject (see there straight guy in #2), give hints you want gift cards to a store. Store such as Macy’s, Dillards, and even a Visa Gift Card.
  4. Lastly, if you can’t get any of those, then just buy what you want for yourself. That way you can get exactly what you want, the color, style and brand. Put it under the tree and thank yourself when you open it.

Here are a few suggestions, we’d love to hear how you broach the subject with friends. Post comments or let us know in our social!
