New Year is approaching, which means that soon life will be filled with pleasant chores! Choosing New Year's gifts is so exciting, because every family member wants to please on this family holiday. But at the same time, many are thinking - what to give for the New Year, how best to present a gift?
Traditionally, few New Years go without souvenirs - these are figurines, postcards, and calendars. The Stone Dog will be the symbol of 2018, therefore, almost every house will be filled with symbolic souvenirs with its image. Ladies receive flowers from men, household items are presented in the family circle, toys and sweets are bought for the child.
But let's look at the category of things that are not worth giving in the New 2018. Not all gifts will be appropriate. And it may be due to ethnic considerations, social attitudes, or bad omens. For example, a watch might be an inappropriate New Year's gift. It is with them that many beliefs are associated - this is both the beginning of an unhappy life and a symbol of parting.
Kitchen utensils can also cause disorders. Scissors, knives and forks should not be given as a gift, as there is a belief that they impair health. Lighters - often to separation. Handkerchiefs (yes, and it happens, they give them) are minor domestic troubles. Belts / belts - the impossibility of career growth. The chain is like, it would seem, a nice gift, only for many it is associated with separation. Pearl jewelry - to tears. You shouldn't give a person an empty wallet. It is worth putting at least a symbolic one hundred rubles there.
Elderly people should not give bathrobes. It may be a useful thing, but it evokes thoughts of old age. But house slippers are not given according to the rules of etiquette. Advice for men: if you are not yet going to legitimize a relationship with your girlfriend (and indeed you are not planning a serious relationship at all), do not buy jewelry as a gift, especially rings. Cosmetics are also not a very good gift. Often, she simply does not fit the girl. You can give it if you have already learned the girl's preferences by heart. Also, women should not give scales, anti-aging cosmetics - well, here it is clear why.
It is a little inappropriate for colleagues at work to give personal hygiene products - it is not delicate, a person may have unpleasant thoughts. It is better not to give a collective gift to a married couple, because it can suit only one of them, then someone will essentially be left without a gift. It is better to buy a separate gift for both the girl and the guy.
And, of course, it's worth considering the top 5 useless gifts for the New Year. Before buying a gift, you should always think carefully - would such a present please you? In the first place for uselessness, you can put unnecessary little things (all kinds of figurines that usually just gather dust, pocket calendars, useless utensils for the kitchen). Such things will simply cause associations with trash. Next are the Christmas tree decorations. After all, gifts must be given before or after the holiday, by that time the house is already dressed up, therefore, your gift will at least be dusty in the box until the next New Year. Perfume is also a useless gift if you are not familiar with the person's taste. He may not like the perfume, and he will simply pass it on to someone. Fountain pads are also useless gifts that are often re-donated. And the fifth category of gifts - shower sets - is certainly a pleasant thing, but you do not want the present to be regarded as an unpleasant hint?
Present your family in New Year 2018 with really useful and pleasant things. Do not hesitate - they will respond in kind! Then the New Year will be held in a warm and cheerful atmosphere.
