There are only FOUR shopping days left before Christmas . . . and if you're still searching for a gift for your boyfriend or girlfriend, it's time to start panicking.
--We can't tell you what the PERFECT gift for them would be . . . but we can tell you what you should STAY AWAY FROM. Here are three of the worst Christmas gifts for men and women . . .
--For women . . .
#1.) Anything She NEEDS Instead of WANTS. Just because she NEEDS new running shoes or a frying pan doesn't mean Christmas is a good time to get it for her.
--It's nice to show you're paying attention to stuff she needs, but practical Christmas gifts don't really score you big points.
#2.) Jewelry in a Small, Square Box. Unless you're proposing, giving jewelry at Christmas is tricky. It shouldn't be given too soon in a relationship.
--And if you're at that point where she might be EXPECTING a proposal, she'll be crushed when she realizes you got her earrings instead of an engagement ring.
#3.) A Card You Signed in Front of Her. Guys, this should go without saying, but when you're giving a woman a card to go with ANY gift, don't sign it right there in front of her and then hand it to her.
--And for men . . .
#1.) Clothes for a Better Version of Him. Getting a guy new clothes is fine . . . as long as they fit his style. If they DON'T, it makes it seem like you don't like what he's wearing . . . and you're trying to change him.
#3.) Sappy or Handmade Things. Yes, ladies, YOU might like getting lovey-dovey handmade junk . . . but men DON'T.
--That means no PJs with a cute pattern . . . no books filled with love poems . . . and DEFINITELY no hand-knit scarves or photo collages of you two. Save that crap for Valentine's Day.
