5 worst Valentine’s gifts for her
With Valentine’s Day just around the corner (yeah, guys, it’s less than a month away), it’s not too early to start thinking about Valentine’s Day gifts. Every year, too many women receive gifts that would make most people feel ashamed. We decided to compile a short list of gifts men should avoid buying to make this a special Valentine’s Day.
Bad gift n. # 1: kitchen appliances
This is very similar to magazine subscriptions. The fact that you wear something on a daily or weekly basis makes it a good Valentine’s Day gift. As a general rule, things that remind you that you have to work like cooking or baking are not romantic for most women. Also, add to this any household appliances like washers and dryers.
Bad gift n. 2 – Magazine subscriptions
Yes, he religiously reads People magazine. But no matter how many People and US Weekly magazines you buy at your local grocery store, most women would not want to receive an annual subscription to their favorite magazine as a gift. You can also include any self-help book in this category (check out the 5 worst Valentine’s Day gifts for him in case you need to know why).
Bad gift n. 3: a bathroom scale
After further thought, a bathroom scale is too narrow and needs to be expanded to include anything related to weight or appearance. This would include gym membership, treadmills, thigh teachers, diet plans, bikini waxing kits, gift cards for plastic surgery (Los Angeles women are excluded from this), etc. Even if it is a product that you use on a daily basis today, it should be avoided as a gift on this day.
Bad Gift # 4 – Fast Food Dinner
Taco Bell might very well be your favorite restaurant, but it’s probably not the best option for a romantic evening on a special day of the year. We all know times are tough and eating at that fancy 5-star restaurant isn’t possible for everyone, but there are plenty of very affordable ones that are more romantic than a Taco Bell. Also put any sports bar here where you can watch the game, unless you are a huge fan.
Bad Gift # 5 – Fake Flowers
Believe it or not, there are men who think that fake flowers are much prettier than real ones because they are cheaper and last longer. Well, I did weeks of searching and couldn’t find any woman who thought the same. But I found many who have received this gift in the past. So guys, no matter how many fake flowers your mother had around the house, it’s not okay to buy them on Valentine’s Day.
Keep in mind that when buying a gift for her, it should not only be something that she wants or uses, but something romantic. Avoid the items listed above and you will have a much better Valentine’s Day.
