The Five Worst Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas

jleighb- Flicker

Valentine’s Day is next week and if you haven’t gotten a gift yet, the best gift you can give is NOT getting anything on this list.  I found the five worst gift suggestions, and they’re all from actual places.  Check ‘em out:

#1.)  ScrabbleCosmo says:  “Put a naughty twist on this crossword game by playing only suggestive words, or turn it into a game of strip-Scrabble.” Why it’s lame:  If you need Scrabble to spice up your life, a board game on Valentine’s Day won’t fix it.

#2.)  Costco SamplesSmartMarriages.com says:  “[If] you’re a member of a wholesale club, have fun eating all the free samples!  Then fill in any empty holes left in your stomach by going out to lunch.”  Why it’s lame:  It’s hard to think of something less-romantic than wading through a crowded warehouse store to get a few Bagel Bites.

#3.)  Dog TreatsAskMen.com says:  “When you’ve first met a girl, you’re unlikely to know her likes, dislikes, and diet restrictions.  You always, however, know what kind of treats her dog will appreciate.”  Why it’s lame:  Why would you know more about your girlfriend’s dog than your actual girlfriend?  On the other hand, throwing in a gift for her pet in addition to her gift isn’t a bad idea.

#4.)  ToolsSeventeen magazine says:  “Guys like useful gifts.  Things like fifteen-in-one screwdrivers, duct tape, and towropes are always good ideas.” Why it’s lame:  Guys don’t really want romantic gifts, and tools are a “manly” choice, but there’s just something that feels “serial killer” about giving him rope and duct tape as a gift.

#5.)  Selling Yourself on eBayCosmo says:  “Create a listing on eBay.com for your love and let your sweetie win the auction.”   Why it’s lame:  Do I even need to explain this one?  It’s creative, but calm down:  If you’re struggling with what to give someone guys can’t go wrong with a massage or a spa treatment.  And ladies, all your guy really wants is…well, you know.
