What NOT to buy her for Christmas

Ladies I think we should speak up here. Want another reindeer sweater for Christmas? I didn't think so.

Also, don't buy the following (in my opinion)
- a gym membership. Unless you know she wants one, she'll take it as a sign you think she's fat.
- An ornament of any kind. Unless she's gramma or has some sort of collection going, this is just a wierd present and it's very lazy. We don't like trinkets.
- workout wear (unless it's lululemon) Again suggests we need to work out. Lululemon is the exception because it's so darn cool.

Please add more here!!

NO GIFT CARDS EITHER! It shows just how much time and effort you put into looking for her gift!

No suitcases on Dec 16, 2006 @ 10:54 am

Don't get her something really unromantic, like a suitcase. Unless you plan to take her away somewhere...

Please, please - no more... on Dec 16, 2006 @ 08:51 pm

SMOKE DETECTORS! My dad's a fireman and used to buy everyone a smoke detector every year for Christmas. Please, guys, don't buy your wives or girlfriends a smoke detector. Even though it may save their lives, I'd rather die with a nice big diamond on my finger.

Gifts not to get on Dec 23, 2006 @ 11:18 am

He he...yeah, I wouldn't want to get any of that either :) Problem is that most guys don't really have a good grasp on "romantic". "Romantic" seems to be different from woman to woman (of course, no two women are the same) but it ceases to be "romantic" if you tell us about it. Now THAT'S a conundrum! My girl's getting a spatula! (kidding :) )

For my birthday (yes, I know it's not Christmas, but still..) my bf got me a gift certificate to a spa. That's totally okay with me!

I would actually prefer a gift card to buy whatever I want instead of getting something I wouldn't want and not have to worry about returning it.
