Many men seem to find it intimidating to shop for their wife, girlfriend or other lady companion during the holidays, so here are a list of the five things to not get your wife for Christmas or any other holiday! Although there will be some exceptions, unless the leading lady in your life specifically asks for these products it is best to steer clear! When in doubt, something that sparkles, feels good or tastes good is a sure bet!
Bad Holiday Gift #1: Vajazzling supplies – Perhaps you haven’t yet heard of “Vajazzling,” a craze which crept into the spotlight during the summer months which threatens to continue well after the Holiday shopping season. To quote the official site: “Vajazzling: The act of applying glitter and jewels to a woman’s nether regions for aesthetic purposes.” Yes, that’s right-Vajazzling means tiny glistening jewels and beads along your lady’s bikini line. Unless you want to have her Balljazzle you, I recommend avoiding this one.
Bad Holiday Gift #2: Anything “diet” oriented – While this should really be a common sense bad holiday gift, some men are prone to being thoughtful and supportive right into the doghouse. Unless your lady is a fitness guru, or she has very specifically outlined diet books, exercise equipment or a gym membership, avoid anything which can be even remotely associated with “weight loss.” In many ways, this would be the same as her buying you a bottle of Viagra with a pretty bow on it, Gentlemen.
Bad Holiday Gift #3: Anything from the “appliance” section – While I will admit that a fancy new coffee pot, waffle maker, or some other highly personalized appliance which she hinted at strongly can be a hit with ladies over the holidays, it is generally in bad form to buy your lovely lady a new Hoover. Much like the “diet” theme, anything which screams “vacuum my floors” is a poor selection.
Bad Holiday Gift #4: Something for her, that’s really for you – Odds are, you’ll both immediately know that the shiny new labeling machine you bought for her is actually for you to use. While this may seem like a twofer for you, getting her a present and scratching something off your personal list of needs, it’s really just a recipe for disappointment and disaster. Retaliation may be swift, Gentlemen; haven’t you always wanted a pink, bedazzled tampon holder for your bathroom counter so they’re all finally out of your medicine cabinet?
Bad Holiday Gift #5: Anything she cannot lift over her head – Excluding a new car, or a beach home in Venice, I cannot think of a single holiday gift appropriate for your leading lady if she can not lift it over her head. New appliances?-see Gift #3. A new saw that will enable her to explore the casually mentioned interest in woodworking from four years ago?-see Gift #4. Unless your lady love has specifically outlined an item weighing over 50lbs, I highly recommend looking elsewhere.
