Valentine’s Day is just a few kisses away. And now is the best time to shop for Valentine’s gift. The winter sales are still on, and the price of chocolates, perfumes and other best Valentine’s gifts haven’t risen yet. But wait, before you get your credit card out to splurge on the girl you have just met, here is something you need to read first. No, not every Valentine’s Day gift is a good gift for a girl you start dating recently.
This post is for you guys. Because I know you will make a huge Valentine’s Day gifting mistake unless you read this article. No, finding a perfect Valentine’s Day gift for someone you have just met isn’t easy. And you can easily buy a bad Valentine’s Day gift. Especially if you are a guy. No offence guys, but it’s true.
SHOULD I GET MY NEW GIRLFRIEND A VALENTINE’S DAY GIFT IF WE JUST MET
First things first. Yes, you should get your new girlfriend a Valentine’s Day gift. Even if you just met her and you don’t even know her that good.
Moreover, you should get a Valentine’s Day gift even to the girl who is technically not your girlfriend yet. And yes, even if she is not that girl, your mother pushed under the mistletoe at the last Christmas party just at the time when you were off to get some punch. But a girl you didn’t find under the mistletoe at the family dinner party.
No, you met the girl. The most perfect girl in the world and now she is your girlfriend. Or at least you are hoping she becomes your girlfriend very soon.
Well, I don’t know exactly how you feel, but I do know how she feels. Moreover, I know how she will feel if you don’t give her any Valentine’s day gift. I will hear from her for sure. And even more, if you give her that gift for the Valentine’s Day.
Wait, I don’t writing about a ring. If only the ring were the only bad Valentine’s Day gift for a girl, you have just met. It’s not! There are many other bad Valentine’s gifts for your new girlfriend you were sure they are good. I mean every Valentine’s Day gift guide says so. But you know what? That person who wrote it was wrong.
WORST VALENTINE’S DAY GIFTS
As said, there are many Valentine’s day gifts that are known as a good gift but really aren’t. At least not if your relationship is fresh and you don’t even know your girlfriend.
Anyway, here is a list of the top 5 worst Valentine’s day gifts for a girl you have just met and don’t know that well to give her a ring. You do know you shouldn’t give her a ring the minute you meet her, right? Well perhaps if you are her Prince Charming and meet all her boyfriend criteria. By the way, have you read my boyfriend criteria list already? You should check it here.
Now finally back to the list of the worst Valentine’s day gifts. This is the worst Valentine’s day gifts out of the typical Valentine’s gifts. We sure don’t need to mention iron and other kitchen gadgets are horrible Valentine’s gifts, right?
It’s not just the ring that is bad Valentine’s Day gift for a girl you have just met. It’s all the jewellery. Especially if both of you are looking just for fun. And this thing you two have is just a fling. You know what I mean.
While a friendship bracelet might seem like a good gift if you two have just a fling, the same bracelet will harm the passion between you.
On the other side, giving your new girlfriend a precious piece of jewellery only after weeks of dating will put her in a ghastly position. Saying simply thank you might feel too little while saying I love you way too soon. Or far from what she actually feels.
Either way, a precious piece of jewellery at an early stage will put your relationship under tensions.
Admittedly, getting her a box of chocolates and a bouquet of red roses would be the easiest thing to do. But, hey, you can do better than this! Besides, who knows if she even eats and likes chocolates in the first place.
For example, I don’t know where am I at when it comes to the chocolates. Nor do most of the fashion girls at this moment as we are all saving ourselves for the delights we get during the fashion weeks that are starting right now.
Here is another common Valentine’s gift, the lingerie. In short, just don’t. If you already bought it, you should rather save it for the next year. That is if you stick together that long.
Although I must say, giving lingerie as Valentine’s gift is not a good idea at all. Even though every department store keeps adding lingerie to their gift guide and saying it as a perfect Valentine’s Day gift.
Stores advertise lingerie as a good Valentine’s Day gift merely because they know this is the easiest way to get lots of money from men. But underwear really isn’t a good gift for a girl. As said, especially if you just started dating.
MAYBE THESE VALENTINE’S GIFTS ARE NOT AS BAD
Now the Valentines’ gifts that aren’t the best gifts but not the worst Valentines’ gifts either. These Valentines’ gifts can actually be both, but you know, better think twice before shopping these. Again, we are talking about Valentine’s day gift for a girl you have just started dating and not your old lover.
Starting with perfumes. In short, unless you have a really good nose and know the fragrance your girl wears, chances you will get her the right perfume are low. You can, though, always give a try with the latest IT perfumes. Or better, a fragrance for her hair.
However, if your girl is a legit fashionista and loves discovering new fragrances than a just launched perfume could actually be a good gift for her. Luckily all the biggest brands launch a new line of fragrances just days before Valentine’s Day. But which perfume to get her then? Don’t worry I know just the perfume us fashionistas want now. You will find it in my Valentine’s Day gift guide here.
Same goes for the toys. Toys can be as good as bad Valentine’s Day gifts. As much as we used to love Me to You Tatty Teddy bears, we are over the toys now. Especially ugly small dust catchers. On the other side, it’s rather hard to say no to a big soft stuffed teddy bear. Besides even if your girl doesn’t like the teddy bear … well, at least your head won’t hurt you if she throws it back to you.
As it goes for all the other toys, only one thing. You two just met! You know what I mean. Well, in case you don’t, let me just say two words; bed toys. And no, not the one stuffed with foam.
