What NOT To Buy Your Significant Other For Valentine’s Day


Valentine’s Day it’s just around the corner, for me little details count more, I don’t like flowers and I don’t ask for the most expensive gift, but still there are boundaries and things that you should never give to your significant other in this day. Here I have some examples:

  • Inapropiate Gift Cards. And I am not talking about a Victoria’s Secret / Massage one (because those are appropriate for that day). But a $10.00 dollar Wal-Mart gift card does not cut it; better buy him/her a $10.00 box of chocolates with that money.

  • Things that remind you to other person. True story, I heard once someone received a perfume and the guy told her, I got this for you because it reminds me to my mom. I don’t know if the guy was homesick or what but you cannot do that. Or worst saying this was the scent my ex used.

  • Something you would like for yourself. Ok I know that sometimes we inadvertently get something we like and think that our significant other would like as well. But, if you love Star Wars and your partner cannot stand sci-fi movies why are you getting him/her something related?

Disclaimer. I am not saying that you should spend hundreds of dollars in a Valentine’s Day gift because honestly I don’t do it. I try to put myself under a $10-15 dollars budget, because honestly I better surprise my significant other with a better present on his birthday. But nice details count, you only have to invest a bit of time thinking about it, and if you cannot think of anything check out Pinterest, they have tons of ideas.

  1. I like your list. I have to say, I think unless it’s a massage or lessons of some sort, gift cards are never appropriate for VDAY, but that’s just my opinion… It’s like you are just checking someone off the list and putting no thought into it. But, I have to say, I would be pissed if I got a Wal-Mart gift card (unless I said I wanted something that was exclusively there). 🙂

  2. I got my husband a silver key chain that has a our anniversary month/year stamped on it with a circle around the date. It came yesterday and he opened the package before I got home because the box was soaked- though he didn’t open the actual gift. I gave it to him and he thought it was really sweet! Shocking, because he can be hard to impress. I wouldn’t have given him the gift if I didn’t have something else up my sleeve.
