Worst Valentine’s Day Gifts Ever

It’s the Thought That Counts, Right?

When you’re looking for the perfect Valentine’s Day gift, it’s often a good to consider which gift ideas to avoid so as not to ruin the night or any chance you have at romantic success. Unless any of these items were specifically requested by your sweetie, the following list features Valentine’s Day gifts guaranteed to put a major kink in your big romantic night.

Anything to Do With Exercise

Nothing drops a hint better than exercise equipment, clothes, or gym memberships. If you think you’ve found a clever way to induce your partner to lose a little weight without insulting her, you’re sadly mistaken. All you’ll achieve with this gift is hurting her feelings on a romantically special day.

Cleaning Equipment

This should be a no-brainer, but alas, there will still be someone out there this year attempting to gift his or her significant other with a state-of-the-line vacuum cleaner, Dustbuster, etc. While they may be useful gifts, they rate zero on the romance meter, so get back out there and pick up something from the heart!

Cooking Products

Unless he or she has an avid love of cooking or has had their eye on a specific product, this is a gift that lacks creativity at the very least, and at worst says “cook for me!”

“Recognize and share your gifts. It not only brings confidence and success to you, but empowers others as well.” – Psychic Faith ext. 9608

Misfitted Underwear

Ok, you should know the approximate size of your lover at this point, or if you don’t, make the effort to find out before you purchase something “sexy” for them. The last thing you want to tell your partner with your gift is that they would look great in something—if only they were thinner or more well-endowed!

Cheap Liquor

Nothing says “I love you” like a cheap bottle of booze! You’re better off buying a $5 stuffed animal at this point.

Grooming Supplies

Again, even though the gift may be useful in your eyes, it’s not romantic and makes a statement that their personal grooming needs some improvement.

Self-Help Books

This is not the occasion to tell your dearie that they need to work on their inner-self. So leave the spiritual guidebooks for another day, and focus on celebrating the love and desire you two have for one another.

Fake Jewelry

If it’s not within your budget to buy them the real deal, you’re better off purchasing something else. It’s wise to avoid the symbolism attached to gifts that are “fake” or “artificial.”

“The most powerful moment of your life is now.” – Psychic Kelli ext. 5130

Anything You’ve Wanted for Yourself

A surefire way to end the relationship is to give gifts intended for your enjoyment. Your partner will see right through this, and you’ll be lucky if you can salvage a romantic night after this stunt!

It’s safe to say that selfish gift-giving, where the gift is more for the benefit of the giver, will always end badly. Giving a gift that says you either don’t know them that well or don’t care to take the time to get them something special to them can be equally as insulting. Focus on coming from the heart and being sensitive to your partner’s needs with your gift-giving this Valentine’s Day, and watch how the sparks fly!

    The best gift I have ever received was my daughter being born. Although every valentines day was always made special by my husband, he always gives me flowers candy and beautiful cards. But this particular day feb 14 2000 was the day we had our baby girl. We planned to get pregnant two months later I was. I had to have an induced labor and the doctor asked me to pick a day feb 13 or 14 and I picked the 14 th what a wonderful day! I love valentines day. But now I feel sorry for the guy that dates her the bar is set pretty high:)

    Hope everyone has a beautiful day on the 14, whether with someone or not. I will spend it without anyone this year. I wish the best for everyone who doesn’t have that special someone.

    I was lucky enough to date the guy who buys gifts that HE will like and use, also many times received things he already owned, re-wrapped. Once I got a bunch of photos of him, ones that he pulled out of a shoe box and stuck in an old frame. At least he wrapped it? needless to say, he’s no longer my boyfriend.

    I had the worst Valentine’s Day ever…I found out that I was expecting a baby and had told my husband. I was so excited, I had actually sat and thought/wondered about this little one. You know like the color of its eyes, if it was a boy or a girl (I already had 3 girls), what this baby would be like, happy like the rest of them. My husband came home from work and told me he didn’t want the baby, and that I needed to get rid of it. He didn’t want anymore kids. I was devastated, hurt beyond belief. I had no college education to get a good job, and no full time job…so I went….so hurt and destroyed….and yes…it was on Valentine’s Day. I lost my son that day, I can’t begin to tell you the pain and heartache of what I’d done. Yup….I hate Valentine’s Day….and I don’t plan on ever celebrating that so called heartless holiday again!

    I would think the best gift I could ever receive for valentines has no monetary value….. yet it is priceless. Forgiveness. Best to you all, and for those of you that are in loving relationships, cherish and protect them. Peace and love. C

    Worst gift I ever got was being in jail surrounded by a bunch of women.

    The best gift that I could think of would be something inexpensive but that came from the heart. An original poem that shows thought and effort, a red rose. A day shared together, a simple breakfast, a scenic walk, a relaxing coffee, a romantic dinner. The most romantic dinner wouldn’t be at a restaurant that is too busy. No a dinner at home we make together, nothing even really fancy but what we both like to eat, and candlelight.

    The most meaningful gifts I’ve ever given have been modest but picked out with a lot of thought re what the recipient would enjoy.

    Oh, I’ve never had this one, but think twice about buying your sweetie Ultra Slim Fast…

    Last year, This Jerk I was with at the time. Led me to believe, that I was the one for him and that he “loved me”. When Valentine`s Day came around, I gave him a few nice gifts. Which he really liked. He gave me a lameass card with a few small boxes of chocolate covered strawberries. He said he had no money. So I bought dinner. At the time I didn`t mind. Because, he had done nice things for me in the past. But heres the kicker. That A-hole left me days later. He couldn`t give me a good reason or be a real man about it. That bastard left me hanging. I would like to say. What a Lieing, Cheating, Peace of S**t He Really is. For leading me on the way that he did. Just to s**t on me like that. But it`s all good. What comes around, goes around. I believe that no good Sleazy Jerk is getting his. So Valentine`s was nothing but BS for me.

    My worst Valentine`s Day gift was back in 1993 when my husband asked me for a divorce! Can anyone top that one???? Needless to say that I was thrilled after being with him for almost 20 years and had two small children to support and take care of you a foreign country.

    A number of things on this list wouldn’t bother me if I received them as a gift. I don’t have a problem getting exercise videos or equipment as gifts. Heck, I ASK for them(I’m an avid exerciser). My husband never gets them for me because HE considers them unromantic. The same with cleaning equipment. I asked for a Swiffer Wet Jet for Christmas one year and he told me emphatically that he wasn’t buying me a mop for Christmas.

    He always got me a stuffed bear for Valentine’s Day. A couple times it was delivered to me at work by a person dressed as a bear. I have way too many now, so I don’t get the bear for Valentine’s Day anymore. Cooking products would be useless for me because the hubby is the cook in the house, not me(I buy that stuff for him). Expensive liquor, never mind cheap, would be a wasted gift because I can’t stand the taste of anything alcoholic.

    I remember when hubby got me a silk flower arrangement for Valentine’s Day and all the women I worked with were horrified and outraged. “He got you fake flowers for Valentine’s Day?” It was gorgeous and I still have it. If the flowers had been real they would’ve died some time ago.

    My husband of 34 years, who I loved very much, filed for divorce on Valentines Day. It takes a real prince to do that. So for those of you thinking about breaking up, don’t do it on Valentines Day. Instead, do something to show your appreciation for all the good times you’ve had. That’s the memory you’ll both carry with you on this “day of love” for years to come.

    Why make Valintine’s Day such a big deal… why not do something special everyday… that is what means more… The best Valentine’s I had was last year where I spent the weekend in bed with my love… no gifts were exchanged but each other… I did cheat and bought him a rose 2 days earlier…

    It’s sad when a man acts as though he really likes you, then all of a sudden he just doesn’t call you anymore. Hurray! There is a holiday coming up.

    It’s really strange how men will talk to you for days or months; as soon as a holiday come up you do not hear from them for a while.

    Although it happened years ago I’ve never forgotten–The worst Valentine’s Day gift I ever got was during my college days when my boyfriend tried to give me a recycled sex toy. During the ensuing argument because of it, he accidently hurt himself with it, and he left crying. We aren’t together any more.
    Gina Rose – I must say that if I got a vacum cleaner for a Valentine’s Day gift, I would use my creativity in such a way that the man who gave it to me would probably find that I’d done something with it he never dreamed a vacum cleaner could be made to do. Imagination can be a wonderful thing!

    My Ex husband gave me a box of 1/2 eaten candy one Valentines Day. When I asked why he did that he said you would have shared it with me anyway. Thank God he’s gone!
    I have Mr. Wonderful now, he buys me Godiva chocolate, a dozen roses, takes me to a great restaurant and takes me shopping. Most of all he LOVES AND RESPECTS ME!

    Mine gift is easy, spend time with me. I don’t care for most traditional gifts, though since I do love cooking…new gadgets for the kitchen is always welcomed (I get that from my mom!). I’ll pass on the cleaning supplies. I don’t like a lot of jewlary, and though I love flowers, I’m a bit picky on them.

    I’m with Doc on this one. As a Frenchman once said to me about Valentine’s Day, “If you have to pick just one day in February to celebrate love, you have problems.” (It was February 13th, and we had just walked into a steakhouse decorated with creepy stuffed bears holding plastic roses. It was hilarious, but also scary.)

    However, cut the guys a little slack on the presents! If a man gets it together to give you anything, even if it’s a stick with a bow tied around it, at least he’s remembered to make an effort. The best Valentine’s present I ever got was a single pink hyacinth.

    Great advice. About the stuffed animal option though — fine if you’re 13. Go for a single rose if you can’t afford anything else. Yes, it’s the thought that counts as long as you’re thinking with your heart.

    Sometimes the simplest gift works the best. Roses, or flowers, a romantic night on the town, or even a bottle of her favorite perfume. What she really wants the most is a few hours of your undivided attention.

    I was once given a vacuum cleaner on Valentines Day……I never voiced my displeasure , but I was a bit disappointed ….and a bit sad even after that.

    I didn’t expect, or even want, a lavish or expensive gift……but I heartfelt card and a single rose would have been much more appreciated.

    Worst Valentine’s Day gift I ever received was, at first sight, a very cute sweatshirt with bears holding hearts on the front; what spoiled it for me was my boyfriend (in his early ’30’s and still living at home) telling me his mom found it at a garage sale.
