The Worst Valentine’s Day Gifts
They say it’s the thought that counts, but sometimes it can be hard to see past a truly terrible gift.
That’s why we bring you the 5 wort gifts that you shouldn’t buy for your loved ones this Valentine’s Day.
WORST GIFTS FOR HER
- A gift card
Too impersonal. This just shows that you didn’t put much thought into looking for a gift or that you actually do not know her that well.
- Fake flowers
Yes, flowers are always pretty expensive and especially around Valentine’s Day. But, rather don’t buy flowers than fake flowers.
- Reduced-calorie candy
Nothing says “I’d love you more if you weighed less” quite like an artificially sweetened treat. So don’t ever let this be your choice for a gift.
- Facebook Gift
Cute on a random day during the year, but a virtual gift for V-day? Rather not.
- Gym membership
She might have said a few times that she would like to be more active and join a gym, but trust us – a gift like that will surely not leave a good impression.
WORST GIFTS FOR HIM
- Stuffed Animals
Most guys don’t appreciate stuffed animals, no matter how cute and cuddly.
- Scented Candles
Scented candles is a good gift for a girl. Not so much for a guy, no matter how in touch with his feminine side he is.
- Gag gifts
If you think about getting him padded underwear because you always make fun of his cute, but flat, behind or “refreshing head wipes” because he’s bald – don’t.
- Matching PJ’s
No matter how much women like the idea of it, men just don’t like to coordinate their outfits with their better half…even for bed!
- Self-Help Books
Something entitled, “Real Men Don’t Lay on the Couch All Day” is not the right gift…ever.
While they might not be the most creative choices – flowers and chocolates are a safe bet.
And of course, it’s hard to go wrong with jewellery or a nice watch. Women are like anything sparkly and man will for sure not mind if they get a quality watch.
