Valentine’s Day, the party of lovers … and one more opportunity to exchange little thoughts and gifts. But are we really sure they are all welcome? Here is a list of 10 points to understand what we absolutely must avoid giving to him.
Valentine’s Day, the most romantic of the holidays, the day in which love is celebrated and you want to show the world how happy you are in a couple and how good it is to have a boyfriend … but is it really like that?
For many, Valentine’s Day is one of those useless “invented” business parties just to spend money on flowers, chocolates and all that sweetness that is given for the occasion, in an attempt to make a good impression without emptying the wallet. Moreover, detractors of the recurrence also complain about the excessive ostentation of one’s own feelings, since those who love one should prove it often, and privately, without waiting for this particular day; which should be obvious, but evidently, this is not the case.
Whatever opinion you may have, the fact remains that February 14 is approaching inexorable, and many lovers are preparing to celebrate the most “heart” day of the year by getting mixed up with candlelit dinners and mini romantic getaways; however, like any self-respecting party (commanded or not), in the previous days a real “gift panic” takes place: what to take, on which objects to aim to make him happy, will he like it?
Yes, you read that right, dear friends, we just talked to the male. Already because, for once, we do not take care to give advice to males on what to give their women not to disfigure, but we want to help you choose the perfect gift for him … or rather, to suggest what you absolutely must avoid giving him! Because even men – unlike what we often think – have a list of gifts that they absolutely would not want to receive (even if they will never tell you and will always make that expression of thanks not too convinced saying “thank you, it was just what I wanted!”), and what we offer you today is a veritable vademecum to avoid running into tragic mistakes that would make your lovers’ day an endless nightmare!
Check This Out: Should Your Partner Be Your Best Friend?
Follow carefully and memorize, here are 10 items that you absolutely never have to give to your partner for Valentine’s Day!
1. Puzzle with your photo
Although the idea of giving your own beautiful framed picture is not bad at all, the puzzle is another story: it takes time, patience, dedication, not to risk being forgotten in some box or left in half.
Give it only if you are sure that your partner is passionate, who has already dedicated himself to this activity in the past and therefore will willingly spend time composing it. And above all, make sure that you yourself will be willing to give him a hand because when you give away a puzzle, the first statement next to “what a beauty!” Will be “so we can do it together!”
2. Technological gifts
Smartphones, tablets, and notebooks are certainly appreciated and very useful gifts … but they are not very easy to choose, especially if you are not passionate about technology and yours instead is. If you cannot be advised by an expert, or you do not pay enough attention while your boyfriend talks about what he likes describing what features he looks for in an object like this, it is better to let it go, because only he could really settle. The technological accessories, moreover, after a few months become obsolete, because models are produced with new functionalities that would risk making your gift appear old after a very short time!
3. Spiritual underwear … too much!
Do you really want to see your guy with a slip from which hang proboscis, beaks, or boxers that have fancy toucans, elephants, bananas and any other kind of imaginable flora and fauna?
No need to add anything else. Okay, this type of underwear is definitely witty and given to tear a smile, but better if you give it to friends, not you, who is the girlfriend and, it is assumed, the person who will have to see him wearing this lingerie. No man will ever have the courage to wear a pair of Hello Kitty underpants to go to the gym and show it to others, so do not give them away! Agreed that even you can always introduce yourself as Sophia Loren in “Yesterday today and tomorrow”, but the sex appeal is also a male prerogative, remember … and this intimate kill him!
4. The Smartphone cover with your photo
Girls … when it’s too much it’s too much! Being together does not mean being omnipresent in the life of the other, and forcing your boyfriend to look at our face 24 hours a day, even when answering the phone, is really exaggerated. To present oneself with a personalized cover with a photo of ours will forcefully impose it on your Smartphone, because which good partner will refuse knowing how to hurt the sensibility of his girlfriend?
We try not to put in trouble our poor men … rather, if you really like the idea of the custom cover, prefer one of the couple, or maybe the nicest one, that of your pet!
5. Anti-wrinkle cream
Yes, girls, the fear of getting old is not just a feminine prerogative: the advancing age and the first signs that appear on the face also frighten the boys, more than they want to admit. And, although today it is no longer a mystery that even men meticulously care for their physical appearance, with creams, sessions by the beautician and masks, an anti-wrinkle cream is not the most pleasant of gifts to receive, especially if it comes right from the girlfriend.
What would we think if our partner would deliver a supply of anti-aging or lifting-effect creams? Apart from mentally insulting him with offenses in every language of the world, surely there would be the doubt of needing it: “here, it means that my wrinkles can be seen then!”. Well, the same is true for men. Let’s avoid mortifying them, and maybe give them an extra compliment!
6. Tie / bow tie with “funny” patterns
Apart from the embarrassing banality of the gift, which certainly would not make you shine for originality, the tie (and even more the bow tie) is extremely personal items, and you can not risk giving an accessory that he would put only to not be sorry, with the result of seeming weird.
Not all children love to wear ties , if they can avoid putting it even on the most formal occasions such as ceremonies, for example, in weddings, where they stop at the shirt and jacket); if you know that your partner falls into the category of anti-tie, it is useless to give it to him for Valentine’s Day. But even if you were a lover, at least you have the decency to avoid those with unrealistic fantasies!
7. Subscription to pay-TV or video games
These gifts would certainly be appreciated by your partner, but you could risk repenting almost instantly; because, if you do not like football or video game consoles, you have absolutely no reason to give something that will inevitably turn against you! And who of you would sincerely agree to spend all Saturday afternoon watching the matches of all the European championships, or to participate in spite of the adventures of some virtual hero? If you’re not part of the ranks of sports lovers or video games and you’re not going to be single in the near future, stay away from these items!
Another very original gift (!!!). Besides having a meaning that sounds a little like “sorry, I did not have time to buy you anything else” , you know very well that those inviting bon-bon stuffed with hazelnuts, almonds, cherries and any other good thing of God will end up irrevocably in your jaws ; it’s like a law of nature, the partner will come back from work the next day and simply find the empty box. And you will not dare to ask anything, it will pull straight into fright because intimately you will already be hating yourself for the extra pound that is instantly deposited on your waistline. Gift absolutely not recommended, for the good of both.
9. Whiskey or various liquors
In addition to looking like a gift “dated” and suitable for people over the years, to give a good bottle of whiskey or any other liqueur requires a thorough knowledge of the subject. If you are not particularly interested in the subject better turn on another, especially if your boyfriend is (it is worth a little ‘talk about technological gifts); if then, not even your boyfriend is a lover of the genre and could not distinguish Scottish scotch from tea with lemon then definitely better to focus on more!
10. A massage in the spa
Although spending a whole day in a wellness center is undoubtedly relaxing, you do not have to make the mistake of giving your child something that, in reality, you would like for you. Already because not all men love the idea of getting a massage, little clothes, possibly falling into the hands of a man masseur; and not all women accept to see their man pampered, though in a completely professional way, by another woman. Therefore, if you do not fall into the category of girlfriends with a jealousy rate of 0.00 %, better avoid!
Dear girls, the list is over; if any of you have found among our 10 points a gift that had already bought the partner for the next February 14th, you hasten to bring it back immediately! But if you have not yet taken anything, when you go shopping for yours, keep our tips in mind, and yours will certainly be a perfect Valentine’s Day!
