Let’s face it; Valentine’s Day is kind of an unfair event. Just two months after Christmas, and you’re expected to once again empty out your pockets and buy the person you love something special. No wonder people call it a consumer holiday!
Men, in particular, have a really tough time figuring out what to get their sweethearts, and some men make the dreaded mistake of sticking with the classic clichés of roses and chocolate. But these gifts are expected and they imply that you didn’t put thought or effort into making your woman happy this Valentine’s day.
So to ensure that you actually get laid this Valentine’s day, here are just a few gifts you should probably avoid buying:
A stuffed animal bearing a message of love: The cheesiness of getting your girl a stuffed animal is incomprehensible. This would be a good gift if you were in Grade 5! As adults, we come to expect that those nearest and dearest to us would actually spend some time considering what to get us on a romantic holiday. The stuffed animal merely suggests you have no taste.
A box of assorted chocolates: How long have you been dating your lady? Surely, you’ve been dating her long enough to know what her preferences are when it comes to chocolate. For crying out loud, not all women love chocolate. When you give her a box of assorted chocolates, she’s left thinking he probably got this at the gas station while he was filling up his car. Furthermore, it’s not she’s going to enjoy the entire – perhaps maybe three or four of the chocolates will suit her taste.
Sexy Pajama’s – At this time of year, lingerie outlets are filled to the brim with all sorts of sexy undergarments and slinky nightwear. While it might seem that buying your woman a fancy outfit to wear to bed is the perfect gift for this type of holiday, we’re here to inform you that you’re absolutely wrong. This kind of gift is more the gift for yourself rather than her.
