5 Absolutely Terrible Valentine’s Day Gifts To Give Your Partner

February 10, 2020
valentine heart break

It’s that time of the year again. Where single people are stressed tf out and partnered people do the most. It’s Valentine! yay.

The best capitalist holiday that was ever invented to make sure we compete against each other and are all perpetually anxious. The most successful propaganda ever pushed apart from Christmas. Shall I continue with my conspiracy theories?

As usual, everyone is competing for who can give the best gift for Valentine. However, no one wants to be the person that gives the terrible gift that ruins a possible fruitful relationship.

So, what are some of the possible gifts that can get you hate instead of love?

Let’s begin:

1) S.T.I’s:

You don’t want to be the person that shares an exotic disease to your partner after a beautiful night out. Part of the gift set on that day should be a visit to the hospital to get tested. You need to be absolutely safe out there.

2) Pregnancy:

Unless you are actively looking for a baby, don’t do it. I understand that the temptation and excitement of the day can push you but don’t do it. Use protection especially if you are young and broke. Kids are expensive.

3) Gym subscription:

This is a very tricky gift to give someone as they may get the wrong impression that you are calling them overweight. Only in cases where they actually ask for it should you do this. Do not allow it to end in tears.

4) Hair removal cream/razor:

Good luck trying to explain to your girlfriend that you aren’t implying that she’s hairy with this gift.

5) Thoughtfulness:

For goodness sake, buy an actual gift that represents your special relationship with the person. In this case, the thoughts don’t count. Only actions. If it isn’t expensive, it can at least be a very thoughtful gift.
