What not to buy your new partner for Christmas

Posted on: December 17, 2012 12:05:51

What not to buy your new partner for ChristmasChristmas is looming ever closer and for many Britons who are in the early stages of a relationship, it can be hard to know what to buy your new partner.

If you are getting a gift for your loved one, especially if you haven't been going out for long, there are a few things to bear in mind to ensure there are no tears around the Christmas tree.

First of all, remember that it isn't how much you spend, but what you get that matters.

An extravagant present which has had little thought put into it is likely to be less appreciated than a handmade or tailor-made gift which has required some time and thought.

In a recent study by social shopping site, one of the biggest reasons women cited being disenchanted by their other half's choice of gift was that it wasn't what they wanted, claiming their friend could have done a better job of getting them something more suited to their personality, Female First reported.

Unimaginative gifts like a box of chocolates or vouchers could suggest that you haven't put in any effort or you don't know enough about them to get them anything else.

Remember, being practical isn't always romantic. Although your other half might need a new iron and some cleaning products, receiving them from Santa on Christmas Day might not go down well, no matter how nicely they are wrapped.

Men, if your relationship is still in the very early stages, avoiding sexy underwear could spare any blushes over the festive period. Fox and Rose, a lingerie shop, last month found that £100 million worth of unworn lingerie goes to waste each year because men are picking unflattering or too risque pieces and are buying items in the wrong size.

If you want to go down the 'his and her' route, make sure you get the tone right. While matching dressing gowns, mugs and pillowcases can be a fun present for the pair of you, if the gift is intended as a joke, check that your love interest is aware of that to avoid them believing the relationship has suddenly taken a leap forward.

Lastly, if you assume it is too soon in a relationship to splash out on gifts, make sure your new partner thinks the same to avoid any awkward moments when they arrive with a huge pile of goodies and you are empty-handed.
