What you shouldn't gift to a man

Gifts that are not recommended to give to men

People have many superstitions associated with gifts. According to superstition, some things can cause health problems, conflicts, a lack of money, and troubles in your personal life.

Superstitious people believe that sharp objects and candles should not be given as gifts, and women are not advised to choose mirrors and pearls as presents. There are also versions that men should not be given ties and watches. Read more about superstitions in the OBOZREVATEL article.

"Tie" Superstitions

It would seem that this is a practical and versatile gift, but supporters of superstition do not think so. It has long been said that a tie will "attract" a man to a woman against his will because ties are often used for spells and magical rituals. This, however, does not apply to cases when a tie is given to a loved one: father, brother, uncle, or husband.

Is it possible to give a watch as a gift?

This sign is present in many cultures. Our ancestors used to say that watches should not be given as gifts in order not to bring illness. Watches are believed to be able to "take away" youth and health. In addition, there is an ancient belief that by giving a watch, a person seems to be "giving" a part of their measured life-time to another. It was also not advised to give a watch to a newlywed couple for a wedding. In this case, the gift would become a symbol of trials and the end of a carefree life.

What you shouldn't gift to a man

If you give a knife as a gift

Giving a knife or any sharp object as a gift is a sign of a quarrel. It is said that this way you can "cut" good relationships and cause conflicts and disputes. Back in pagan times, people believed that knives carried destructive energy. So, according to another version, a knife as a gift can cause illness.

Socks as a gift

There is a rather unusual interpretation of this sign. According to legend, giving a man socks is a sign of a quarrel. People said that it was in the gifted socks that a man could quickly quarrel with his wife and leave the house.

A bag, suitcase, or wallet

It's simple: you can't give an empty wallet, bag, or suitcase as a gift. So, to "neutralize" the negative meaning of the omen, you can put a souvenir, coin, or sweets inside.

What's wrong with slippers

You can give slippers as a gift, but only if they are not white. White slippers are a symbol of disease and death.
