Long time an ago, I worked with a woman that I became friends with. During previous conversations, she had shared little things about herself like her apartment was always chilly and her favorite color was purple.
One x-mas I drew her name for an office gift exchange. Remembering what she had shared I went shopping. I passed by Victoria Secrets and saw a pair of silk pj's that were purple but thought that silk jammies was to suggestive. I was leaving and noticed they had these long flannel night shirts that was purple and a pair of matching fuzzy slippers on sale...so I think PERFECT...purple, practical, priced right (25$ gift limit)/
I gave her the gift and I didn't get the impression she was bothered by it but another female said it was a little inappropriate and suggestive. I've posed this question to other women over the years and gotten different responses.
Some said it wasn't the gift but the fact that it came from Victoria S. So if I bought it from J.C Penny's it would be ok???? Some said it was "intimate wear" and therefore suggestive.
So would you be offended if a work associate AND friend did this for you? Would it make a difference were he bought it? Or would night clothing be inappropriate at anytime.
