The 5 Gifts Men Hate Getting!
BY J.S. VON DACRE
Chrstmas is in the air and everyone is bustling to find those perfect presents for their loved ones. Yet, as most of us know, buying gifts can be terribly stressful–especially trying to get the right ones! And when it comes to shopping for the opposite sex, it can be even more challenging.
Every man is different, so it’s impossible to suggest something that would be applicable to all. But there are presents that most men hate receiving. So, if you are thinking of any of these, I would suggest a quick re-think!
1. Underwear or socks
Yes, we know that these always seem like the “easiest” options, but they are also the most boring. It also suggests that you put the least thought into your present shopping for him.
These also fall into the same category as underwear and socks. Even more cringing would be the “novelty” type ties that are suitable for no occasion ever.
3. Framed photo of yourself
Unless it is your father, don’t do it. And if it is your father, unless he is the sort of person who likes plastering framed photos all over the house, maybe still don’t do it.
If you know of specific books he wants or if he is passionate about reading frequently (about something you know he would be interested in), then go ahead. If not, you are pretty much shooting in the dark with this one.
5. Novelty gifts that have no purpose
If it serves no purpose, then it has no purpose.
Ultimately, of course we all know that it is the thought that counts when it comes to buying presents. But still, it also helps to try to send out the “right” thought when giving presents.
