Plus it’s really a gift for the person giving the lingerie which kind of sucks. So we’ll save you sometime by suggesting that you stock her up with some seriously comfortable underwear from MeUndies instead. They are 3 times softer than cotton and are made of natural, sustainably sourced fiber. MeUndies come in a variety of cuts and colors.

Beyond its luxurious gold plated facade, pewter label, jaw-dropping price tag, connections to Jay Z and the hip hop world at large, what truly sets Champagne Armand de Brignac apart is the fact that it is produced by winemaker Jean-Jacques Cattier and a staff of just fourteen craftspeople at his family estate in Chigny-les-Roses, France. In case you didn’t know a team of just fourteen people is almost unheard of at this level in the wine making industry. However, true to their craft they continue to produce Armand de Brignac the same way they did before the brand exploded onto the global scene nearly 10 years ago.

Sourced from the three most famous parts of Champagne, France (Montagne de Reims, Cote des Blancs, and Vallee de la Marne terroirs), Armand de Brignac Brut Gold aka the “Ace of Spades” utilizes a balanced blend of Chardonnay (40%), Pinot Noir (40%), and Pinot Meunier wine (20%) to create their most popular blend to date. This specific blend coupled with a truly unique oak cask maturation process and slow aging process in one of the deepest and coldest cellars in Champagne, France has created a truly unique champagne with lot of buzz around the brand.
