DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT! 5 Gift Idea’s to NOT consider for her

Posted by

For Men, Women most of the time are a mystery, and that makes gift shopping all the more difficult. Any man reading this has had at least one time in their life where they thought they had the perfect gift, but then realized after giving that gift that she was not as thrilled as they thought she would be. So here are 5 kinds of gifts to avoid.

  • Kitchen Appliances: Blender out of sorts? Toaster burning the bread? Microwave on the fritz? DON’T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT! Women want a personal gift from the man that understands them better than any other, and if you buy her a new kettle for your anniversary, then that reputation will be highly doubtful.

  • New Outfit: You may think that a new outfit is a great idea, it’s personal, women love clothes and love looking great. The catch is you must get it right including colours, style and especially size. And the likelihood of a man with a mans fashion sense of getting all 3 of these categories correct is slim to none. So DON’T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT! Leave that area up to her.
  • Money: We may be stating the obvious here, but it has to be said, DON’T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT! She wants you to make an effort for her, that will tell her that you care and want her to be happy, and a green note or two in an envelope will make her feel cheap and will automatically land you in her bad books.

  • Gift Card or Certificate: Like giving her money, this shows a lack of thought and effort, so DON’T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT! A gift card or certificate may be fine for someone not as close, but for your partner it’s a relationship death sentence!
  • It's okay honey, you don't have to get me anything”: As a man, when you hear your partner say this alarm bells and flashing red lights should go off in your head with a robotic voice saying “Warning! Warning!” This is her thinking “I hope he surprises me...” Women love surprises, they don't want you to ask “hun, what do you want for your birthday?” They want you to put that extra bit of thought and effort in. If you take this phrase as a let off, then you better be ready for weeks of silent treatments. So DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT!

In most cases, the cause of an unsatisfactory gift is a lack of effort and a failure to listen to your partner. A lot of men out there struggle to hear the little hints women give and therefore when it comes to finding the perfect gift for her, they come to the conclusion that it's impossible and go for the safe bet of a bunch of flowers and some chocolates. Although women love flowers and chocolates and you might get by with a pass, going that extra step to exceed her expectations by listening to those hints and making notes of them will land you in a great place with her and you will remind her why she has chosen you over all others.
