A couple’s first few Christmases together can be special and it’s always nice to have a romantic moment during the holidays. Gifts can be a big part of courtship and a special one will be remembered for years to come. However, a gift can also backfire, creating awkwardness, embarrassment, or even convey an insult. It is important to remember that boyfriends are male and probably would not enjoy the same kind of gifts that a woman would want for herself, no matter how fabulous it may be. To help avoid troubles, here is a countdown of the top 5 worst Christmas gifts for your boyfriend.

3. A tie.
He might be getting ties every year for Father’s Day for the rest of his life. Give him a break.
2. A scale or gym membership.
Guys have feelings, too. Nobody wants to reminded of the holiday weight they need to work off in the middle of Christmas dinner.
