Bills, bills, bills... and panties!
Valentine's Day is in T-minus 15 days, so let's get crackin' on gifts.
Last year, we schooled the guys on buying lingerie for your lady love. But we know you menfolk need a trip to Victoria's Secret like Octomom needs another baby. We ladies could use a break from the mall, too. So check out these ways to order sexy underthings for your main squeeze -- which, let's face it, are a thinly veiled gift to yourself -- without leaving the house. Sure beats getting bills in the mail.
FOR HER: KnickerMail. It's British, as if you couldn't tell. Select a pair of girlish undies, like the ones at right. Then fill out an e-postcard, and the goods will arrive in a gold or silver envelope. Because you know, great things come in shiny packages. Order soon so the panties have time to get here from across the pond. See the Web site for pricing info.
FOR HIM: Pantygram. Ladies, here's a site that lets you send a heart-shaped women's thong to your guy to, you know, let him know what might be in store later. Fill out a survey, including occasion, how "spicy" of a statement you want to make and "your anonymous secret admirer message." It's like MASH for grown-ups. Once the panties arrive, the object of your affection has to go online to discover who the sender is and read an additional message from you. If you've been working up the nerve to talk to your crush, why not reveal your true feelings with a pair of briefs and a note? Mail the package to his job to make his co-workers jealous! $24.95 plus shipping.
