So it is your first Christmas together as a couple. I bet you are eager to start shopping for your boyfriend’s gift. To help keep you from making the monumental mistake a lot of females make when purchasing a gift for their boyfriend I have compiled a list on five of the worst Christmas gifts to buy your boyfriend.
5. Umm Baby, why is this engraved to Darryl? My name is Mike!
Any gift that was originally purchased for an ex boyfriend of yours, is a faux pas of monumental proportions. Even if he does not know the gift was for someone else he eventually will find out. His feelings will be hurt and such a disregard for his feelings will cause mistrust for you. Besides, re-gifting is tacky so why do it anyway? Yes ladies come out of pocket to avoid giving this worst gift to give to your boyfriend for Christmas.
4. Is it getting kind of stuffy in here?
A photo album of what your future children will look like is one of the scariest worst gifts to give to your boyfriend for Christmas. While he may love you, chances are that with this being your first Christmas together, the nuclear family is not something his mind or heart is likely to be into just yet. This will make him feel a tad bit claustrophobic in the relationship.
3. What was she thinking?
A gift certificate or card to your favorite store is a no-no. Remember this is a gift for him not you. Will your boyfriend really enjoy a Victoria Secret gift card? He likes the catalogue with the pretty models, not the lingerie by itself. Well hopefully he doesn’t. (yikes!) If you are using the gift card as a way to remind him of where to shop for you for Valentine’s Day, please re-think. Better yet pray that there will be a Valentine’s Day for you, after handing him one of the worst gifts to give your boyfriend for Christmas.
2. This is suppose to help me with what exactly?
A self help book is definitely one of the worst gifts to give your boyfriend for Christmas. If your guy seems happy with your relationship and happy with himself, then he does not feel he needs help. He will see this for the flashing neon sign that it is: you are trying to change him. No man wants to feel like their girlfriend is trying to change them. Respect and love him as he is.
1. Wow … sweetie … his and hers bath towels, coffee mugs, place mats, bath robes, …
His and Hers anything to go in his place is possibly the worst gift to give your boyfriend for Christmas. If the two of you are maintaining separate dwellings this will never be a well accepted gift. If he does accept it he will only put them out when he knows you are coming over. Again this is another sign that you are trying to push things farther ahead than he is ready to move at the moment. Rule of thumb if you don’t live with him, and he has not asked you for decorating tips, let his place stay as it is.
These are some of the worst gifts to give your boyfriend for Christmas. Good advice is to not let your gift choices be about you, when you buy a gift for him think of how he will like it. If he likes sports and you don’t so what, get him that jersey or video sports game. The goal is to have another Christmas together. So take yourself out of the equation and put him, and him alone in it.
