I know hygiene products might be a practical gift you think your partner will definitely use, but they imply you have a less-than-flattering impression of your partner’s body. Also avoid buying workout gear (unless she’s an avid gym-goer and you know her exact size)or weight-loss products (unless you want to be punched in the face).

Cleaning Supplies

Cleaning is not fun, and cleaning supplies are not a gift. Similarly, booking a professional cleaner to give someone the day off is a nice gesture, but not a real gift. Try This Instead: Best Gifts for Plant Lovers and Green Thumbs

Picture Frame

This passes when it’s a gift from a young child, but adults shouldn’t give picture frames to each other. While it’s not exactly a necessity, it isn’t a luxury either. The giver can’t guarantee it matches the recipient’s other frames and style, or if there’s even a picture to put in it.

5. Rock climbing

Without a doubt, this is one of the most difficult activities on this list. It requires a pretty high level of physical fitness since it fires up pretty much every muscle in your body. On the mental side, there can be other challenges; talk to some professionals and try out the sport with their guidance. This is an excellent mood and health-improving, as well as a unique, mind-toughening sport, that will make you meet some of your demons, and hopefully, overcome them.
