1. Pearls. People say that pearls symbolize shed tears. In the mythology of different nations, the pearl is associated with misfortune. Our ancestors were convinced that pearls should be bought only for ourselves, and in no case should they be given or accepted as a gift. A watch would also be an unfortunate gift from accessories.

2. Underwear. At first glance, a set of beautiful underwear may seem like a great gift. Especially if you give it to your beloved. If your relationship is just beginning, then it is better not to do this. Such a gift may seem intrusive and sexual.

3. Cosmetics and perfumes. Giving cosmetics and perfumes is unlucky. In addition, they may not be suitable for the person you are gifting. Since this aspect is very individual, it is not easy to guess exactly what scents she likes.

5. A trip. Such a gift is a sign of disruption of plans, deadlines, and unforeseen troubles. Traveling usually brings a good mood, impressions, and stress relief, and if it's a vacation for two, it will definitely strengthen the relationship.
