Gentlemen, this is your reminder that Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. If you have a special lady in your life you might want to show her your love by getting her a gift. The gift that you give your woman can say a lot.
Husbands, here’s a list of Valentine’s Day gifts your wife DOES NOT want.
- Sexy Underwear
C’mon guys, admit it. Sexy underwear is not so much a gift for her, but a gift for you. (The exceptions are seriously nice ones with French sounding names and lots of lace, but even still you benefit).
Before you click ‘complete payment’ on your online cart, do a quick once over. If you’ve added anything ‘crotchless, fish net, or pleather’ back away from the computer. No lady wants a naughty nurse costume for Valentine’s Day. If that’s what you want, fine. But don’t pass it off as a heartfelt gift for her.
2. An IOU for a massage.
Forgot a gift? Scribbling an IOU for a massage on the back of the shopping list doesn’t cut it, I’m afraid.
Firstly, it will probably never happen and if it does, we all know you’re hoping it leads to sexy times. There will be two or so minutes of half arsed massaging, followed by not-so-subtle hands near the jollys.
Please, if it’s relaxation you want to give us, get a voucher for a proper massage therapist who won’t try and touch our girly bits while we’re trying to relax.
3. Novelty merchandise.
See a funny t-shirt/mug/apron in a store? Great! Have a giggle and move on. Leave it where it belongs (which, to be clear, is on the shelf)
Rather than buying her an apron which indicates that you should ‘kiss the cook’, just do it and thank her for making your dinner (or better still, make her something!)
