5 Valentine’s Gifts You Shouldn’t Buy Your Girlfriend

Written by Francesca, Thursday, February 11th, 2016 in Dating Columns, Sex & Dating

Heart-in-gift-1362499643_11Although every woman is unique, it’s safe to say there are certain gifts you should avoid buying for women. These five items say you don’t really know your girlfriend’s tastes. Here’s what to get instead.

  1. Red Roses

Nothing is more cliché than red roses. Find out what her favorite flower and color is and get those. If they happen to be red roses, then that’s fine.

  1. A Box of Chocolates

Many women may still be trying to lose holiday weight or have New Year’s resolutions regarding their health. Assorted chocolates may not be the wisest move in these cases. Go with chocolate-covered strawberries, a fruit bouquet (with or without touches of chocolate), or her favorite pricey health snack.

  1. A Stuffed Animal

Generally speaking, stuffed animals are juvenile and useless gifts to give adult women. Give a more meaningful reminder of your affection, such as a handmade item if you’re skilled, a framed print of lyrics from her favorite love song, or a memento from a place that’s significant to your relationship.

  1. Lingerie

Lingerie isn’t a gift for her; it’s a gift for you. Ask her to buy something sexy as your present. In the meantime, get her an article of clothing she really wants. If you’re not sure of her fashion or size, buy a gift card to her favorite retailer.

  1. Heart Jewelry

Unless she’s dropped hints to the contrary, don’t pick out jewelry in the shape of a heart. Such pieces are mass produced and cheesy. Choose something more unique and reflective of her personality and taste. It could be her favorite gem, her birthstone, or a sophisticated design she would find beautiful. Make sure you know if she’s allergic to any metals and whether she prefers rings, bracelets, necklaces, earrings, or sets.

Be original and pass up these Valentine’s Day gifts this year for something more personalized. The more thought you put into what you get your girlfriend, the more loved she will feel.
