    You never gift flowers to a guy. Never! Yes, they are beautiful, colourful and smell great and sound perfect as a gift for a woman, but surely not a man. Men like things that are rustic and a reflection of their personality and flowers surely don’t do anything for them.

  3. Deodorant

    It is seriously rude to gift a Man a Deodorant. It amounts to telling them that they smell bad. You can pick up a perfume that’s exquisite and has a really nice musk fragrance, but Deo’s are a really bad choice.

    We really hope you haven’t ever given this as a gift. Every man loves his looks as much as every woman does. How would you feel if you got an epilator as a gift? Get the feeling? Need we say anything more?

  7. Mouth Freshner

    Once again this is a big No! He may have told you he loves his mint, but you cannot gift him a mouth freshener. Imagine getting a pack yourself. However, expensive those mints, you will not like it. It’s like telling him that he has bad breath. And that is a lane you don’t walk take a walk in.

  9. Fairness Cream
