This is the second day of the series that I called “Happy Holidays.”
Today I’m going to share with you the top 10 gifts you should not give to your girlfriend. However, everything depends on the type of person “she” truly is, so if something that she would like is in this list-this is just from the experiences of the people who I surveyed.
Top 10 Gifts You should not give to your girlfriend:
Sometimes, it is not a very clear idea to give a book to your girlfriend. Especially, if the book is about money or how to save money during a lifetime. Yet, if a girl is a “book-worm,” she would love a good book. Of course, she most likely won’t like about money. But, each girl likes to get something unexpected or something that they were looking for throughout the year, and most likely it won’t be a book. Well, if you’re girlfriend is a geek.
Sometimes lingerie can be something more than just a pleasant surprise. It can carry a lot of meanings for each woman-all depends on how she is going to take it. Mostly, you should give lingerie to your wife, however, if your girlfriend and you have been together for a very long period of time, and you are planning to get engaged-lingerie can really work. Depends on your “relationship status.”
Watching movies together is one thing, but giving a DVD or a Blu Ray DVD to a woman is not a perfect choice of a gift. Most likely, she didn’t expect to get a DVD for Christmas, so giving a DVD is not a very wise choice.
№ 7-Cleaning Supplies.
By saying “cleaning supplies,” I mean it. “Cleaning supplies” are basically anything that is connected with cleaners(Windex, etc.), toilet washers, etc. By giving someone “cleaning supplies,” you are telling them-they are messy. This is not something you want to present as a gift to your wife, especially to your girlfriend. As crazy as it might sound, I’ve actually surveyed a woman, who said her boyfriend gave her cleaning supplies because she had OCD. After that, they broke up. Don’t ruing your relationships.
Clothing can not seem as a bad present, especially for a woman, but sometimes it is wrong to give someone clothing items. It is very hard to guess with a size of a clothing item because people can shrink, people can expand in size, so it is quiet impossible to “go right” with a size. Sometimes, if the size of the clothing item is a size or two bigger than a girl needs, it might be offending to her, because she will think that you are thinking of her as “fat.” So be very careful with clothing.
This might sound strange, but, some women said they don’t like when someone gives them a perfume. Some of them mentioned that perfume can be offending because it can mean “you stink, so you need a perfume.” This is nonsense, however, they told me if they don’t ask for a perfume, they shouldn’t get one for Christmas. This opinion is not mine, this is just what I received as an answer on the question “What is the worst Christmas present for your opinion?”
Do not give a pet for Christmas. Sadly, not all of the people love pets or can afford to support one. Of course, you should give a pet if she is really asking for one, but don’t do it without her mentioning she wants one. You never know if the person has allergies or certain reactions, besides, supporting a pet is much more expensive than buying one.
№ 3-Gift Cards.
Again, this sounds strange because gift cards are one of the best gifts that you can receive, for my opinion. Yet, certain women think that a gift card is a way of saying: “I wanted to get you something for Christmas, but I was too lazy/I didn’t know what to give you.” A woman might think that you could put a little more effort into the gift, or at least try to find something that won’t include a gift card. Just listen to your second half, and you’ll understand what she wants.
№ 2-Video Games/Play Stations.
Video Games are not a very good gift, until you know that your girlfriend is into them. Video Games might not be the best present because many women find it stupid, and unnecessary to own a video game or a play station. Most women don’t even have time to play video games and spending money on video games might be pointless. Nevertheless, depends on your girlfriend.
“Nothing” is the worst gift possible. If you won’t give anything to your girlfriend, she might just think you didn’t even try to put effort in her gift, and you don’t appreciate her as much as she appreciates you. Not giving her anything can also mean “I’m breaking up with you” or “I don’t care about you that much.” It also means you are not giving her attention because gifts are gifts, but they are being given in order to show that you care about that person, that you pay attention to them. Not giving anything can just lead to a nasty breakup.
The most important tip-Just listen to her. She will surely mention what she likes and dislikes. Just listen and you will understand what to give to your girlfriend. Also, pay attention to her: her style, her mindset, and what she talks about. Just pay attention, and you will be more than fine.
