I want to find something to wear for my boyfriend but I have no idea where to even start. (I'm a men's T-shirt and jeans kinda girl. This is out of my knowledge base.)

Well, what are you qualifying as "Lingerie."
Part of the thing is that guys like womens undergarments. generally speaking, they are are functional, but also a bit sexy. As a guy, I can tell you that at times, a woman in lingerie can look even sexier than totally naked. It's a way that women can tease men, giving them a glimpse, but not the whole picture.
My Girlfriend is similar in style to you, and I am not particularly picky about what I like to see her wearing, on the surface or more intimately. It is, however, important that you get what flatters your body type. If, for example, you're curvy, a skimpy set of top and bottom (halter bralette and thong, for example) isn't going to look as sexy as something that accentuates those traits positively, like boyshorts and a bra that gives better support, or even a corset, if you're not on a tight budget. On the other hand, if you're more on the skinny side, a push up bra and bikini would do better, and again, if not on a budget, stockings and garters (tho these can be finicky to get the right size, and the improper size can look pretty odd if they sit too high or low on your hips)
One thing I will say, is not to go out and buy a whole new set of bras and panties. Has he seen you before? does he know the kind of underwear you wear? If you're anything like my girlfriend, you don't wear anything particularly fancy or seductive from day to day, so if he has seen you with your "overgarments" off before, and you're looking to surprise him, try something different for a change; wear a little lace under that less girlie outer attire, and watch his eyes pop when he sees the difference. Make sure to remind him this won't be a regular occurrence tho, and normally you'll wear your usual stuff. Not only does it reinforce the fact that you only have 1 or maybe 2 sets, but it also keeps him on his toes, so he knows when you're feeling particularly sexy ;D
If he's never seen you before this time, then I'd suggest you just stick with what's in your drawer. If you have a particular set you like more than the others, wear that on the day of this "event"
Sorry I can't be of more help, but without knowing a bit more, it's hard for me to make more specific suggestions than that.
Best of luck, and message me if you have any further questions1
