Because of weather, we ended up doing a mini celebration with Booger. Afterwards, Lucy delivered treat bags to her doggy friends in the neighborhood once it stopped raining.
It should go without saying that the perfect gift isn’t the same for everyone: There are men hoping for cologne and women longing for power tools.
But that doesn’t stop us from having some fun and a contest around truly horrible gifts. Today’s post is about bad gifts for women – tomorrow it will be the boys’ turn.
Before you hit the check-out lane, check out this year’s list of the 15 worst gifts for women:
1. Any appliance she didn’t ask for
Unless she specifically asked for a waffle maker or blender, don’t buy her one. Even women who enjoy cooking don’t want to feel it’s expected.
Clothes are a no-no for several reasons. There’s the size issue – if you get her something too big, she’ll probably be offended; if you get her something too small, she might feel bad about herself. There’s also the style issue.
If a wardrobe makeover is what she wants, make a nice card promising to take her on a shopping spree with your cash.
3. A framed picture of yourself
This “gift” is strangely common, based on personal experience and its presence on almost every “worst gifts” list out there. Nothing says you’re self-absorbed like a framed photo of yourself posing like a model. And the picture of yourself when you were 6 years old? That’s not cute either. Better idea? A picture of the two of you doing something memorable.
