For men, giving gifts to women can be a loaded endeavor. The wrong gift can send her flying out of the room, in a flurry of tears. The right gift can make her shout her love for you from the rooftops.
Here at the Doozy labs, we came up with some of the worst birthday gifts:
A vacuum cleaner. (A “gift” that has angered women for generations now.)
A toaster. (Toasting devices just aren’t that romantic, as a rule.)
Tickets to your favorite sporting event
A How-to Cooking Book
Wilted flowers. (No roses from discount racks ever!)
Any perfume that starts with “Eau de Generic”
A monkey (Too much maintenance)
Control top panty hose
A one-way ticket to Palookaville
Origami (It’s still paper, man. Still paper.)
Sagely advice and/or words of wisdom
A Weight Watchers brochure (not even a membership? Come on.)
A Book Entitled “How to Handle your Recent Break-up”
“I’m with Stupid” t-shirts
Two for one lap dances at local strip club
A hearty slap on the back
Okay, you get the gist. Think about your gift from her perspective. Take note of her interests, hobbies and items that are dear to her. And remember, a gift from the heart wins out every time.
Another smart idea? Start the day out right by sending her one of our free birthday e-cards for her. These free birthday e-cards are bound to put a smile on her. And for our sisters reading this, we also have male-brain-friendly ecards for him too.
It’s no monkey, but still…considerably less clean-up.
