Christmas gifts gone wrong

If you have met someone new and have contemplated buying a present for Christmas, I urge you to be mindful of what you choose. In some cases, it may even be better to not buy anything at all.

If you have known each other for a short time, a really nice date or special outing may be the way to go. I know some classy people decide to dump their potential relationships to avoid the gift exchange, but it doesn’t have to happen that way!

I have seen gift exchanges derail a new romance simply because the person didn’t know enough about their date. You can misjudge their humor or personal taste and come off looking like a jerk.

Guys, don’t give someone you just started dating lingerie. It’s just lose-lose and way too risky, it’s hard to live down a bad gift purchase like that!

What is the best and worst Christmas exchange you have had?

I can recall this one guy that gave me what I thought was drug paraphernalia but it turned out to be an odd shaped crystal piece. It’s always good when the person can tell what the gift is right away!

Whatever you receive, good or bad, remember to be gracious and say thank you! Even if you have the urge to hurl the empty box at their head. Don’t do it!

That’s all! It says much…..I was just discussing with someone I am so over buying gifts for a mate……yesteryears! LOL Keep it light and simple is my theme……Over the years I come to appreciate the small priceless acts of kindness that money can’t buy! Peace of mind between two indiviudals who are completely satisfied with each other is a gift within it self…..I was stumbling recently with buy a gift for someone and just stopped and didn’t get anything….Doing to much indeed…It wasn’t neccessary at all….I am glad I listened to my inner voice just to chill and enjoy the gift of happiness….. :)

mernin’!

When it comes to buying Christmas gifts for someone that you just started dating….use caution.

The last thing you need is to go all out on a gift and have the relationship end a few months later.

Fortunately for me, I have either been with someone for a while before the holidays started or not in a relationshiop at all so I didn’t have to worry about the buying gift remorse.

It’s always fun shopping for someone that you have known for awile.
You already know their likes and dislikes so to see the look of joy on their faces when you have bought a gift that you know is spot on gives you an automatic atta girl (or atta boy if you are a dude)

Must admit my best gift exchange was of course from the marriage/committed relationship….this dating game to me just doesn’t call for deep pocket gifts……seriously I am thankful I am beyond looking for a gift or trying to give a gift to impress…Don’t get me wrong with time and a deep connection gifts are wonderful its just not priority with me at all….I am not looking for them and I am not buying them…..lol

I remember one year, an ex wanted to take me to a new years eve party at some hotel in NY.
I was a broke college student so didn’t really have money for a dress.
He didn’t want me to spend money on a dress do he tried to downplay the dress code.
Some how or another I was able to buy a dress and without my asking, my mother got me the perfect shoes to match for Christmas.

My mom rarely gets me shoes (I have big arse dinosaur feet) but when she does buy them for me, she’s always spot on!!!

I think if a relationship is fresh you can do things like

1) give them a holiday cookie that you either made or is you lack cooking skills: bought
2) nothing wrong with a card
3) a holiday ornament (don’t go all out though)
4) a special dinner (followed by a special dessert :twisted: )

Morning lovelies –

Gift giving…hate hate hate it. I don’t even really like getting them either. Too much can go wrong. You spent to much, not enough, you like it, you hate it and at the end of the day, it’s still just a material thing.

Best gift – A bracelet from Tiffany
Worst gift – Well, it turns out it was a candlestick holder, but it was big and bulky with like some tough alligator looking skin and was so heavy it could have been used as a blunt object. In addition, he left the clearance rack tag on from Pier One. I have a picture of it somewhere… :lol:

Can we just say the fashion police would’ve taken me straight to jail without a thought of writing a citation if I wore this stuff!!!!!

I know, I know it’s the thought that counts, however they were hideous to say the least and way too big for me. It was obvious not much thought was put into it due to no questions asked about my size, favorite color or my style…LOL

LOL @ Blue.

Here’s how to avoid that ackwardness during the holidays:

Get involved with someone new during the beginning of the new year thru the Start of summer and try to stay in that relationship (only if things are going well) thru the end of the year onto next…
Therefore by the time the holidays have hit you have been together by 7 months (at the shortest)
The ackwardness is over and it’s okay to do the gift exchange.

If you happen to find yourself involved with someone new by the beginning or end of fall, best to keep it casual and don’t have it be serious until after the holidays….

I am whatever you say I am

December 22nd, 2010

random thought: if you are not shy about sleeping with someone then you shouldn’t be sly about doing the holiday gift exchange with that someone.
Just a thought….

I’m gonna be all alone this Xmas, and I’m gonna enjoy the solitude…As a single man in his 40s living in Atlanta, one would think I would have all sorts of dates and g-frieds to “gift,” but I have not met anyone that has really inspired me. Seems that a lot of women around here are very materialist, not in the philisophical sense, but in the sense that they are very into “things” like cars, clothes, shoes, etc. It seems that they “want” lots of everything, including six-pack abs on their boyfriends etc. Even if I had a g-friend I might just say “Hey, lets just relax and go for a walk in the woods this year.” And as an athesit, I feel kinda obligated to reject Christmas anyway. The frantic consumerism makes me sick to my stomach. Either way you look at it (Christmas as religious myth) (Christmas as secualr purchase-fest)I don’t care for it. And since I’m kind of a black sheep in my family, it’s the truly single life for me, and I like it.

One of my best gifts came from my child. She gave me an alabaster turtle figurine. Something about that turtle makes me feel good when I hold it in the palm of my hand. I think it has healing powers. I find myself sometimes meditating with it in my hand.

And see that’s the thing… when the holidays come up, I don’t EVER suggest a gift exchange, but the dude usually does. Or even worse, he surprises me with a gift and then I feel bad I don’t have anything for him.

Even on my birthday, I don’t want a gift, I’d rather go out and do something or go to dinner. For instance, last year we did the “make your own pottery” thing, went ice skating in Centennial Park and had dinner at Rays on the River. I remember that kind of stuff. I hardly ever remember the gifts!

I asked the hub what he wants for Christmas and he said just get him some socks. I am thinking that’s not enough but that is what he said he wanted. I got the socks to get him what he said because I know if I didn’t get them he would say I didn’t get what he asked for.

But I also got him a nice zip front sweater and a nice hat. Something other than a bball cap or skull cap for when we go out for nice evenings.

I tell my mom not to get me anything every year, she does anyway. And usually it’s stuff I could do without. Like a few years ago I was really into Suze Orman, so I saw that she was ordering a Suze Orman book of affirmations. I don’t need positive affirmations from Suze Orman. I just like her show. :lol:

So yeah, someone can know you well and still be off base on the gift giving.

When I do want something I just come out an say it. It’s funny how you can be direct, and folks think you’re giving them a signal for something else.

This year I wanted a Shark Steam Mop to steam clean my floors. I told my mom and she actually bought it for me. However, had I told a dude I wanted this…I’m sure he would have gotten me something else, since mops aren’t all romantic and stuff.

For the last 5 years, I want the full box set of Sex and the City (6 seasons). I’ve had at least 3 dudes say they’d get it for me, but then they go to the store and find it’s like $200. :lol: It’s probably cheaper now that the show has been off the air for a while.

But again, I’m good with just doing something fun like dinner, ice skating, paint ball, etc.

Morning all…..

I have always wondered what to get a guy that you have just started to date for Christmas. You don’t want to go extravagant because it looks like you are trying to push things too fast. But you don’t want to be impersonal…like a gift card. I have decided on a bottle of his favorite booze and a nice card would suffice! :lol: Henny and Grey Goose is NOT cheap! Also his favorite cologne (really that works for you if you love the smell of him) would be a good gift. Or find out what his hobbies are and work from there.

An excerpt from my upcoming novel, “The Broke-A$$ Christmas Diaries:….”once for Christmas I was so po; (that’s right, I couldn’t afford the other “o” nor the “r”), I dressed up for my boyfriend at that time in one of my Sexy Mrs. Claus outfits and sang and danced to “Santa Baby” while I stripped! “Birthday Sex” be damned! Nothing tops “Christmas Sex”! This was some straight up sleigh riding….stocking stuffing…ho ho hooooooo…sex! And the best part of it….it only cost me $Free.99″! :lol:

WORST GIFT from a new guy is lingerie. I agree WISE!

I love cheezy funny gifts…like a singing stuffed animal, crazy looking knee socks or let me build my own bear at Build-a-Bear. I also love things from Hot Topic. Oh take me to a beauty supply store and let me go crazy. I love hair. I don’t care if I have a head full. I like wigs and things to change my look like you change knickers! It suits all my personality!

In a perfect world and I had a rich man….they the possiblilites would be endless! But alas….this is not a perfect world! :sad:

SexyCool and Dan, I’m calling you two to come front and center. I agree it’s the thought that counts but what about a Chia Pet/Thingy for a gift? LOL

One year my son wanted to get a gift for his teacher. All the kids were getting gifts so I took him shopping. He wanted to get a Chia Pet because the teacher had live plants in the room that kids helped her to water sometimes. He told me because she likes plants most of the kids said they were getting Chia Pets. I know two people who received one of those for a gift and would rather have not. LOL

Be it a watch, a Chia pet, or a card – it is appreciated.

That’s the thought that’s appreciated – at least for me.

Hey Rock. I was only referring to the spa deal as thoughtful. If you buy me something cheesy, I’m probably not going to like it. (Unless it was intentionally cheesy and we both know it. That makes it funny which means you just gave me the gift of laughter.)

And if you know me well enough to be buying me a gift (and you really should only be buying me a gift if you know me well enough to do so), I would think that you would put some thought into the present. (Hence, the thought that counts.)

However, if you just dived into your re-gifting bag and just threw any old thing out at me or bought me something tacky or not to my tastes, then you weren’t thinking and that doesn’t count.

Some of my co-workers helped. Mind you, he was not a happy camper, but had to put on a smile cuz the pres/ceo was there when he opened his office. Inside was a table with a contintenal breakfast setup. We couldn’t even get a table in his office before. I was proud but knew he would be upset. IT HAD TO BE DONE. Unfortunately, I’m sad to report it’s back to the way it use to be. Five years later. Mounds and mounds of paper and boxes everywhere. A fire hazard, no doubt, but he can’t change.

@Fion ~ that was a good thing you did.

There’s a cashier at one of the grocery stores I frequent that loves one of my purses. Every time I go there she asks me to give her my bag when I’m done using it. Well, I stood in her line on Sunday waiting for her to finish with the lady ahead of me. When she finally looked at me she asked where are my groceries. I told I didn’t have any but I had this and pulled a gift box from behind my back. Daggonit, this nut squealed so loudly the manager came over. She ripped it open and found a very nice purse inside. She was so happy, but I saw the look on the other cashier’s faces wondering wth did she do to deserve a gift from a customer. You never know, be nice to your customers and you may be rewarded. I’m a strong advocate of “pay it forward!”

So, the rules, which were written for all to see, stated that Monday thru Thursday you were to buy your Secret Santa a gift for NO MORE THAN $1 each day, and on the Friday you were to buy a gift for NO MORE THAN $10. So, day 1 comes and everyone is opening their gifts. People are getting necklaces, slippers, handbags, shiiit that you KNOW didn’t cost a $1. Shoot the gift bags were more than a $1. Stupid me actually followed the rules, so imagine how my Secret Santa felt when everyone else is getting etravagant shiiit, and she got effin hand sanitizer. lol

Weave is not a substitute for your real hair
I can understand if you are bald or a cancer patient. But if your real hair is to the nape of your next and you come into work the next day with your purchased hair down past your shoulders, who are you kidding???
but if you are going to rock a weave have your hair blend in with the weave and not the weave blend into your hair.

@Leggs..I am yet holding on..over here..

And since Blackfoote brought up football can I go ahead and put out my Superbowl predictions…or rather my superbowl dream..While I love my Steelers..Defense needs to tighten up so I see us(excuse me let me dry my eyes) not getting but so far in the playoffs..I hope we do..lord I hope we do..but if we don’t its going to be The Tom Bradys for the AFC..and the Michael Vicks for the NFC..

Football talk – Since my team is out of it I just want to see some good ball.Every team has some flaws but its basically down to 5 teams in my book;
AFC = Pats looking like the favorites and will have home field advantage. Jets still have Sanchez at QB so they won’t make it. Pitt – Heart of a champ but they better figure out how to run the ball and pray that the long-haired dude gets healthy.

NFC= Falcons – got a shot at it this year. Can’t put my finger on it but they have to find a way to beat Philly Home or Away. Philly – Favorite because of the offense. They better figure out how to stop the run, fast.

not just Michael but the receivers too, that Desaen boy and Machleen etc are real fast.

Now falcons got Ryan, he can throw but White is no break out fast like that.. And Gonzalez can catch but is slow…then Douglas? pleeeese,he slow so I like to root falcons but I’m kinda scared for them in case they meet Brady or Vick or Peyton at top level
