Money Talks: Five Dumbest Gifts for Girls

The holidays are a wonderful time of year, a time to show the ones you love that you care.

So the last thing you want to do is show that special woman in your life that you don't have a clue.

So, here's a list of the five gifts you don't want to be giving that girl.

Number one?


Anything that plugs in.

You're basically asking her to stand in the kitchen and work for you.

Dumb idea number 2?


Unless you know exactly what she wants, you could be buying something stupid, then basically forcing her to wear it.

Better idea?

Make a nice card that says you'll go with her on a shopping spree.

Dumb idea number three?

A restaurant gift certificate.

Now this may seem like a good idea.

But the problem is, you're giving her money, then asking her to use it to buy you a meal.

That's not a date.

Better idea?

Make her a card that says you'll take her out for a night on the town anytime she wants.

Bad idea number 4?

Anything whatsoever having to do with losing weight, like gym memberships.

Even if she wants one.

If you don't know the reason why, you haven't been around women very long.

And bad idea number 5?

Anything having to do with cars.

Cars may be cool to you, but they're probably just transportation to her.


If you give her an actual new car.

In my next story, we'll talk about dumb gifts for guys.

But in the meantime, ladies, let's hear from you.
