Christmas is coming up and if you are looking for a gift for a special lady in your life, you may be navigating a mine field. Watch where you step and make sure you don’t blow up with a gift that just isn’t right. There are a few Christmas gifts you should never buy a woman, so before you step in it, check out this list and avoid these things.
Never ever buy a woman a razor for Christmas. Unless she has specifically said “I want a razor for Christmas,” never assume that this is a good gift. Why? Because a razor implies that you have noticed the woman is hairy and you think she needs to shave. Even if she is a Sasquatch, you never point this out to a woman. Not if you want to live to see another Christmas.
Once in awhile a woman might tell you she wants a new vacuum cleaner or something like that for Christmas. Anything that cleans or is cleaned with means work. At Christmas, every woman already knows that she has plenty of work to do — especially after the big day is over. No woman wants to be reminded of it with a gift. Cleaning supplies of any kind are terrible gift ideas. This means no mop bucket full of cleaning supplies, no new broom and dustpan, no vacuum cleaner, no lint roller, in short — nothing that reminds the woman that there is cleaning that needs to be done.
Clothes That Are Too Big or Too Small
If you want to buy clothes, you are better off giving a gift card so the woman in question can just pick out what she wants. If you buy clothes that are too big, she may think you are saying you thought she was large. If you buy clothes that are too small, you remind her that she is not as small as she once was. It’s a no-win situation. Skip the clothes and go with the gift card. It’s safer.
Even if the lady you are buying for is eating Weight Watchers food, Christmas is not the time to gift her with a supply. That means no Lean Cuisine food, no Jenny Craig, nothing that says or implies “diet.”
If you want to buy underwear for your lady, don’t guess. Just take her to the lingerie store and let her pick out her own. Don’t pick out underwear for her. Nobody likes that. Nobody wants a bra that somebody else picked out or panties that you guessed on the size and style. Nope. Don’t go there.
If you’re not sure about what to get the woman in your life, be safe: Give cash or a gift card. Better to be tacky than dead, right?
