What are the most inappropriate gifts?admin
Christmas is about love, family and contemplation. At least that’s what the official description says. Unofficially it’s about gifts, family, fairy lights and kitsch (not meant negatively. We love kitsch). It is therefore not surprising that many people feel a lot of pressure, especially when it comes to the gift for their partner. That has to fit. Anyone who is in a relationship knows that other people will ask you: Uhhuuuunnnd? What did you get from your sweetheart?
Anyway. The pressure is great, the expectations are high and if you are honest, after a few years you have gone through all sorts of gift ideas. But good will counts, right? Oh no. Not necessarily. ElitePartner did a survey on the subject of gifts and women in particular don’t take the joke here. Every third woman is massively disturbed by an unsuitable gift, which can certainly lead to the house blessing being crooked. 13 percent of the women surveyed lost their desire for sex if they received a bad gift. Not that we want to exert pressure here or anything.
I suppose that did not work
But how often do bad gifts really happen? After all, you know your partner so well, who is really wrong? In retrospect, sixteen percent of the men in the survey stated that they had given something completely wrong or inappropriate for Christmas. In contrast, just six percent of women believe that this has happened to them before. In principle, the more expensive the better? No, absolutely not! Every eighth man and every tenth woman is massively stressed when their partner spends more money on gifts than agreed.
Fake it till you make it
But if you really made a mistake, how do you react? 29 percent of all respondents have pretended to be happy about the gift at Christmas in order not to jeopardize a harmonious Christmas celebration. This may feel like the safer option at the moment, but it also keeps the couple from getting to know each other better and growing together.
