Holiday shopping season is in full swing, with nearly everyone searching for the perfect gift to give their better half. And while their intentions may be pure, sometimes people in relationships can really miss the mark when it comes to gift-giving. Let’s take a look at the five worst gifts to give your boo thang for the holidays.
It can not be overstated how important it is to get the right kind of gift for your special someone. According to a consumer survey on Statista, many agreed that the person they’d be most disappointed to receive a crappy Christmas gift from is their romantic partner.
Believe me, I know firsthand how intimidating it can be to shop for your significant other. My girlfriend is absolutely amazing at finding perfect gifts for me every Christmas, birthday, Valentine’s Day, etc.. I, on the other hand, can’t ever seem to find anything that I think she would love. And I’m not crafty enough to make something myself, which can make the whole process a frustrating endeavor.
If you’re like me and often find yourself stumped about what you should get your partner, at the very least it may help to know what gifts you absolutely should not get them.
These horrid gift ideas can range from low-effort, to impractical, to outright offensive. All of these entries come from my own personal experience, either through witnessing someone gift their own spouse these duds, or giving them to my own past girlfriends.
Through extensive trial-and-error, I have narrowed it down to five hilariously bad gifts to give your partner. This is also coming from a predominantly male perspective since, statistically speaking, women tend to be better gift-givers on average. But these ideas can apply across the spectrum. Because at the end of the day, nobody likes to get a bad gift from the person they love most.
