Gifts are an important part of a relationship, whether they are material or experiential. Although there isn’t a golden standard that can help you understand what constitutes a bad or good gift, there are things that you should always keep in mind before buying something for your special one.
- A surprise is good only if it matches the receiver's preferences.
- Gifts that do not reflect the receiver's identity are less appreciated.
- Buying a present for your partner should not be taken as a task to complete.
These are just some general points to follow but if you are interested in understanding the effects of bad gifts in a romantic relationship you can read my research on this topic
under the Shared Secrets
where all other gift psychology research has been published.
