The Mistress Gift Guide

Stocks in this article: TIFNILECOH

NEW YORK ( TheStreet -- Don't bother booking a restaurant reservation on Thursday night in New York City before Christmas, because that my friends is mistress night.

It's the night when "misters" take their favorite gal out before Christmas, which of course they spend with their families. It's part of the deal and mistresses know this, but the gals also expect a pretty swanky gift in return for their adoration of their master of the universe.

Now even though the girlfriend may have already said point blank what she wants, a good mister will probably want to surprise her with something extra as well.

AshleyMadison.com, the website for married people looking to date, surveyed their clientele and discovered that on average men spend between $51-$100 on their wives, but when it comes to the mistresses, they spend $251-$500.

Cash is king as these guys are keen to avoid a paper trail. The survey said that 87% pay for their mistress gifts with cash.

So here's a list of mistress gifts to surprise and delight your darling.

Jewelry

This is the no. 1 choice for mistress presents, according to Noel Biderman, founder of AshleyMadison.com. Surprisingly, Biderman says men are more likely to buy diamonds for their mistresses than for their wives.

A little blue box from Tiffany & Co. (TIF) will always be welcome but there's also the option or go online and shop for diamonds at Blue Nile (NILE).

If she's one in a million and makes you think you're going to have a heart attack when you see her, stash your cash away for a Van Cleef & Arpels necklace. This is the standout gift for the classic girl. The onyx clover necklace will set you back $4,900 but Bluefly sells a vintage one for $3,100.

Lingerie

Your girl on the side probably spends hundreds on lingerie to look hot for you. Have you helped her out in this department? Do you have any idea how much it costs to look hot? Agent Provocateur runs about $190 for a brassiere or at least $90 for panties and the selection is perfect for your gal if she's the dirty girl-type.

If that's a little too rich for your budget, then Victoria's Secret (LTD) will do.
