It is hard to believe that it is already time to start shopping around for the perfect V-Day gift. Alas, the men of the world will all be running each other over in hopes that they will snag the heart of their lover by providing them with an amazing gift; or so they think. Ladies, if have you ever opened your gift and had to fake a, “Oh thanks sweetie, I love it!” then by all means print this list and tape it to the bathroom mirror, because I am going to reveal the Top 5 Things not to gift us for Valentine’s Day. In no complete order here it is direct from Ask Kathleen’s readers.
Car Items: Are a No Go!
Women don’t want something to make the car go faster, hell we can’t drive anyway so why waste your money – Jenny, WA
Appliances: Need not apply
An appliance of any kind will not prompt me to get into the kitchen and make dinner or do the laundry faster – Kristine, WA
Cell Phone/Cell Accessories: Ugh, more bills!
I have cell insurance why would I need a new phone when I am getting a free upgrade next month? – JoAnne, OR
Stuffed Animals and Chocolates: Are a thing of the past.
I think we’ve broken the habit now, but stuffed animals and chocolates! Give me dinner and a good movie, or a weekend away from it all… priceless! –Darla, CA
A drill would be the worst gift- Helen, CA
If any man out there gets his lady tools, for example, a drill; he should run, because I can promise him that she is going to figure out ways to use it that he could never imagine!
It’s not hard Guy’s, women are easy. Give us a reason to dress up! Take us out for a night on the town. Yes, that means you have to call a restaurant in advance and find a sitter. Cause momma wants fine dining and a romantic embrace.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
