For spouses

Any item wrapped in lacy fabric or doilies.

Lace-trimmed tops for her or lace underwear for him (yes, there is such a thing). Ask them to model their new frilly clothing!

If they aren’t the frilly type, buy a pair of sneakers in their favorite color…and add an extra pair of contrasting “laces.” Lace-up work boots and lace-up boxer trunks fit the theme as well.


Go the textiles route and give the gift of a revamped wardrobe. Take them on a shopping spree! Have fun picking things out and trying them on.

For another couple

Give a personalized throw pillow or afghan.

Make a batch of lacy oatmeal cookies.
