Don’t struggle trying to think of a gift idea for your wife or girlfriend. Flannel is the gift that keeps on giving, all year long. Josh Hild

When it comes to buying gifts for your special lady who also happens to love flannel, trying to make a selection can be a little nerve-racking. What if you choose the wrong item? What if she doesn’t like it? Enough with the what-ifs—flannel clothing has been around for a long time and it remains not only comfortable, but also always in fashion. When gift shopping for a gal who loves 100 percent cotton, you won’t go wrong with these three gift ideas.

Pajama Bottoms

There are few, if any, items more comfortable than flannel pajama bottoms. They are incredibly soft, very warm and quite stylish. Since they’re designed mainly to be worn while sleeping, you can’t really go wrong on color. But you don’t want to buy them too tight, as tight pajama bottoms can make it hard to sleep comfortably. If a whole set of pajamas—bottoms and a top—is what your flannel-loving girl prefers, there are plenty of them on the market in all the same colors, styles, and patterns. And yes, they’re just as comfortable as the bottoms alone are.

Long Sleeve Shirt

A flannel shirt can be one of the most comfortable shirts you ever wear, and women that love flannel generally love a good flannel shirt most of all. There are a few questions you’ll want to answer before making a purchase, like snaps or buttons, button-down collar or not, color pattern, or bright or earth tone? While many women like to wear their flannel shirts quite tight, others like them billowy and loose for both comfort and fashion purposes. If you’re completely stumped and don’t know what to buy, you can never go wrong with the classic red-and-black flannel shirt made famous by lumberjacks and hunters.

Flannel Gown

Flannel cotton gowns are soft, attractive, and easy to get on and off. Length is one important consideration when choosing a flannel gown. A long flannel gown will someone warmer than a short one and it has more of a classic, long-gown look. Again, color choice completely depends on the tastes of the person who is receiving the gift. But it’s highly unlikely anyone won’t be happy with a red-and-black flannel gown, long or short.
