10 Holiday Gifts That Could Ruin A Romance


Apparently, this is the content i'm going to write about before the exam hit on my body.... Counting! the exam will hit me within the next 3 hours 20 mins. I visited Yahoo! this morning and i found this featured article: 10 Holiday Gifts That Could Ruin A Romance.

Its quite interesting for those who are intentionally sending their boyfriend @ girlfriend a gift especially when Christmas is coming soon not far away from the date stated. (of coz you are not giving your darling or dear a gift only during Christmas rite? Cheh...... Take this as a reference for your future laR)

CAUTION!!!!!!

Gift to avoid #1:
Unless you are planning on proposing, avoid gifting jewelry, especially a ring, as that perceived level of commitment may intimidate your sweetheart.

Gift to avoid #2:
While a ring may be considered overboard, anything impersonal, such as a kitchen appliance or gift card can be construed as thoughtless or insincere.

Gift to avoid #3:
Avoid gifting lingerie for your first holidays together. It may be considered too intimate and send the wrong message.

Gift to avoid #4:
Gifting something selfish, such as sporting event tickets when you know your significant other isn't a sports fan, can relay that you may be more focused on your own interests than that of the person you are getting the gift for.

Gift to avoid #5:
Work-related items that promote efficiency at the office should generally be avoided. Why bring up "work" during the holidays, which is a time for relaxation.

Gift to avoid #6:
Clothing may be offensive, especially if you aren't sure about what size to purchase.

Gift to avoid #7:
Animals as presents are generally bad ideas unless you know the person very well. Pets are huge commitments and way too serious for a "first holiday" together.

Gift to avoid #8:
Re-gifting is never a good idea, especially if it's a gift from a past relationship.

Gift to avoid #9:
Forget cliches, such as boxes of chocolates or flowers. They show little thought or effort.

Gift to avoid #10:
Avoid gifts that may suggest that your significant other needs to change something about himself/herself, such as exercise clothes or gym equipment, which may say that he/she doesn't look good enough as he/she is.


After reading the suggestions, what do you think? Do you agree on it as well???
Personally, i agree with the 'gift to avoid 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10......' In short, i agree with all shown above...
