What is the worst Valentine’s Day gift you have ever received? Whatever it was, we bet you can find it on this list! Because great gifts, come along with some horrible ones as well. On the most romantic day of the year, everybody wants to get the right present but, oftentimes, saying it is easier than doing it. For this reason, in this article we bring you a selection of the worst Valentine’s Day gifts you have ever seen. How many of them sound familiar to you?
1. BOX OF CHOCOLATES WITH EMPTY SPOTS
Chocolate products are a classic Valentine’s Day gift that never fails. Except if, when opening the box of chocolates, half of them are missing and your partner has eaten the most delicious. If you receive a box with only the coconut chocolates and some other unidentifiable flavors, this may be one of the worst Valentine’s Day gifts.
2. FOOTBALL T-SHIRT OF THEIR FAVOURITE TEAM
If you and your partner are supporters of the same football team, then ignore this, because then they surely would love to receive a T-shirt of your team. If, on the contrary, you hate football and your partner offers you an outfit to go with him to the games… that won’t work, right?
3. CLEANING KIT
Enough of cleaning gifts or home appliances for women “as a joke”, as men usually say. Would a man find funny to receive a toilet brush? Where is the fun in mocking gender stereotypes? Absolutely nowhere! Also, Valentine’s Day is a day for gifts that truly can excite someone.
4. A PERSONALIZED MUG OR CUSHION
Personalized objects can be funny to a certain point, usually people receive them with excitement, but then they are embarrassed to use them in public. And it is not surprising in most cases, because most photos printed on cushions or mugs tend to appear a bit deformed and with an awful tone and lighting.
5. PAJAMAS FOR TWO
Spending Valentine’s Day together is one of the most romantic ways to enjoy it. But be careful, together doesn’t mean literally glued! There are double pajamas for couples with an only zipper, made to fit two people inside. An idea that, rather than pleasing, makes you feel like running out. Give some respect to personal space, please.
6. A SCARY STUFFED toy
Stuffed toys are also a classic February 14th choice. However, it is good to make sure that the toy you choose be it a teddy bear, a dog or any other animal, is really cute and does not instill terror like the one in the picture. Its glance is so disturbing that we’d better move on to the next terrible gift.
7. TOO CHEESY DIY
Everybody likes those romantic gifts that our partner has made with their own hands and all the excitement in the world. But the line between romanticism and corniness is dangerously thin. A picture of the both of you framed in a handmade frame is beautiful, your bust made of papier-mâché, not so much. In the same way, a love letter remembering your best moments together is great; however, a series of poems describing all the parts of your face with detail, not so much. Don’t you agree?
8. A SUPERMARKET CAKE
It’s Valentine’s Day! Come on, your partner cannot come with a processed cake that has no taste at all. A cake, a pie or a cupcake is a solid gift choice, as long as it wasn’t bought in the supermarket under your apartment, three minutes before closing.
9. EROTIC PICTURES THAT LOOK FUNNY
There is no doubt that a session of erotic pictures is one of the most personal and original gifts. Unfortunately, if they are not made tastefully and professionally by a photographer, they may be more a reason for laughter than for passion and romanticism.
10. “USEFUL” OBJECTS FOR THE HOUSE
It’s OK to want to be practical when giving gifts, that is, offering something that you know your partner will definitely use. But there is a limit, offering for Valentine’s Day things for the house like lightbulbs, batteries, flowerpots or a shower head is never a good idea. Better a piece of decoration, right?
11. YOUR NAME TO A STAR
It may seem like a very romantic gift but, is it really worth it? If you receive a star you will have a certificate declaring that a star upon the firmament carries your name. But, what else can you do with it except putting it in a drawer and forgetting about it?
12. AN UNDERCOVER SELF-TREAT
Your partner may get it right or not with the gift for Valentine’s Day, but some of them are clearly for personal use. For instance, if you hate videogames and you receive one, it is likely an undercover self-treat meant as a surprise for you. In the same way, if you hate reading and you receive a book, suspiciously of a topic that he/she loves. It is like a crime.
