The 5 worst Valentine’s gifts for her

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner (yeah guys, less than a month to go), it’s not too early to start thinking about Valentine’s Day gifts. Every year, too many women receive gifts that would make most people cringe. We decided to compile a short list of gifts men should avoid buying to make this a special Valentine’s Day.

Bad Gift #1 – Kitchen Appliances

This is very similar to magazine subscriptions. The fact that you use something daily or weekly makes it a good Valentine’s Day gift. As a general rule, things that remind her that she has to do a job like cooking or baking are not romantic for most women. Also, add to this any appliances like washers and dryers.

Bad Gift #2 – Magazine Subscriptions

Yes, he reads People magazine religiously. But no matter how many People and US Weekly magazines you buy at the local grocery store, most women wouldn’t want to receive a yearly subscription to their favorite magazine as a gift. You can also include any self-help book in this category (check out 5 Worst Valentine’s Gifts For Him in case you need to know why).

Bad gift #3 – A bathroom scale

Upon further thought, a bathroom scale is too narrow and should be expanded to include anything related to weight or appearance. This would include gym memberships, treadmills, thigh masters, diet plans, bikini waxing kits, plastic surgery gift cards (LA women are excluded from this), etc. Even if it is a product that you currently use on a daily basis, it should still be avoided as a gift on this day.

Bad Gift #4 – Fast Food Dinner

Taco Bell may well be your favorite restaurant, but it’s probably not the best choice for a romantic night out on the one special day of the year. We all know that times are tough and eating at that fancy 5-star restaurant isn’t possible for everyone, but there are plenty of very affordable ones that are more romantic than a Taco Bell. Also include here any sports bar where she can watch the game, unless she’s a huge fan.

Bad Gift #5 – Fake Flowers

Believe it or not, there are men who think that fake flowers are much better than real ones because they are cheaper and last longer. Well, I’ve been searching for weeks and couldn’t find any women who thought the same way. But I found many who have received this gift in the past. So guys, no matter how many fake flowers her mom had around the house, it’s not okay to buy them on Valentine’s Day.

Keep in mind that when you buy a gift for her, it shouldn’t just be something she wants or wears, but something romantic. Avoid the items listed above and you’ll have a much better Valentine’s Day.
