5 Worst Gifts For Your Girlfriend

I found my Christmas present. I know, I know. I’m a Christmas ruiner. You don’t have to tell me, the shame I felt afterwards was bad enough. While I was pretty disgusted with myself for snooping through his closet looking for my gift, I was actually really pleased with what I found.

We even went out later that evening and I casually mentioned, “I wish I could open my Christmas gift early, it would go great with this top.” The look on his face was priceless.


I’m a jerk, I know. I can’t tell you what it is. Because, let’s face it, someone has to be surprised.

Anyway, I was really pleased because I didn’t expect much, to be completely honest. He’s a guy, and I’ve received some pretty lame gifts from guys in the past. So lame that I came up with a list. Here’s a list of gifts to avoid for your girlfriend this Christmas. If you already got her one and it’s on this list, I’m sorry. 😦

  1. Jewelry. I’m not talking about diamonds and nice watches. I’m talking about the Kendra Scott earrings and James Avery rings and necklaces that 80% of women in America own. At least be original. The last thing we want is the same exact gift that three of her girlfriends already posted on Facebook.giphy
  2. A gift card or cash. Not only is this more expensive for you, but it’s totally thoughtless. I’d rather get something inexpensive that he put some thought into than a Victoria’s Secret gift card. (Side note: Gift cards make great additional gifts… just not the only gift.)
  3. Household appliances. Unless she asked for one, don’t get your girlfriend a vacuum cleaner or a crock pot. It’s pretty insulting and I can almost guarantee you’ll regret it.giphy1
  4. Diet/Fitness stuff. Again, unless she specifically mentioned that she wanted a food scale or a pair of running shoes, don’t even go there. You’ll only hurt yourself.
  5. Valentine’s Day Stuff. Candy, flowers, stuffed animals. Save it for Valentine’s day. Don’t get me wrong, we appreciate those things, but on Christmas, we want an actual gift.

I think I speak for a lot of women when I say this… Avoid the gifts on this list, at all cost. I could be wrong, maybe I’m just extremely high maintenance and every other girl would love all of these gifts. In which case, I feel really bad for my boyfriend. Except, he did alright so he’s safe for now.
