A couple of bites of a sweet treat is ideal
and a lovely idea. However, no one wants to have a great amount of leftover
chocolate laying around for a while.
9. Small home appliances:
If you consider a household chore tool as
being a suitable gift for such a romantic occasion you should be prepared for
the fallout. If you still do choose to buy an iron, coffee machine, or any
other similar appliance, we salute your bravery.
8. Personalized planner-pen sets:
If your lover is a middle-aged CEO, this
might be ok but get gold-plated ones, or don't you ever dare, how many of us
7. Tech related gifts:
Guys and often girls love getting tech-related
gifts. But before buying anything do a proper research. If your partner has a
PS5, don’t buy him/her an Xbox controller or games or if she/he has an android
phone don’t buy an iPhone compatible stuff. Be careful and don’t waste your
money and love.
6. Dental hygiene products:
Nobody wants to be given a gift that might
impact their self-esteem. While that fancy smart toothbrush might seem like a
lovely and cool gift choice, you are subtly, if unintentionally, telling them
their dental hygiene needs improvement. Just be careful. However, if you know
your partner really well, they may well love it.
5. “Funny” Valentine’s Gifts:
Don’t think buying one of these stupid
gifts ever. Maybe you’re a “funny” couple that these will be appreciated. But
beware Valentine’s Day has a way of turning even the hardest hearts into
very-easily-breakable snow globes. This is no time to come home with the
romantic equivalent of a marshmallow gun.
4. Gym membership:
Even though you may have good intentions,
anything else that hints at self-improvement could be seen as offensive. The
much better option: Sign up for a couple’s dance class to get in shape together
and learn some moves.
We’re referring to anti-wrinkle and
anti-aging products when we say cosmetics. Because, this gift that also
presents an underlying insult does not send the right message.
2. Jewelry they would never wear:
Yes, even once. In theory, jewelry is
actually a great idea, but it's also highly personal and difficult to get it
right. It's better to let your partner pick out her/his own bling instead.
1. Giant Teddy Bears:
Seriously? This is a
perfectly appropriate gift for a 5-year-old only. Moreover, it shows you
didn’t buy or forgot to buy a proper gift for your significant other.
