Women reveal the one gift they DON’T want for Christmas – and it’s bad news for old school romantics
- Women have revealed the one gift they don’t want to receive this Christmas
- The offending item is heart-shaped jewellery, which many have branded tacky
- One woman said she would rather wear a necklace with a phallic pendant
Women are in overwhelming agreement about the one gift they dread opening on Christmas morning.
The offending present is heart-shaped jewellery, which dozens branded ‘tacky’ and juvenile after a woman reposted a tweet slamming the style in an Australian Facebook group.
‘Your girlfriend doesn’t want heart-shaped jewellery, I promise you,’ the tweet reads.
‘If you see this and think she wants something heart-shaped, I am willing to help you find something that isn’t ugly. This is my act of service to my fellow women.’

The warning, which has racked up 1,000 likes since it was uploaded on Sunday, has drawn some amusing responses.
One woman who felt particularly passionate about the issue said she would rather wear a necklace with a phallic-shaped pendant than anything with a heart.
Many slammed the bling as ‘gaudy’ and infantile.
‘Heart-shaped rings remind me of the play jewellery that came in the princess dress up kits when I was like five,’ one woman wrote.
‘Heart-shaped anything is for children,’ another agreed.

* Heart-shaped jewellery
‘I hate all heart-shaped jewelry. None of it is okay,’ added a third, while a fourth said she ‘gags a little’ every time she sees a heart-shaped engagement ring.
Others shared personal encounters with the divisive style.
‘When I was 16, my first boyfriend gave me a heart-shaped necklace with tiny diamonds and yellow gold and I will cherish that memory until the day I die,’ one woman wrote.
‘If my husband got me a heart-shaped necklace today, I would honestly just be confused. Because, against my deepest wishes, I’m no longer a teenager.’
‘Omg a dear friend of mine from high school has a heart-shaped diamond solitaire. It just looks so childish,’ said another.
Some joked that they would prefer to get something edible in heart form.
‘Can I just get a heart-shaped 10-pound chocolate. Possibly peanut butter filled. Or coconut,’ one woman said.
But not everyone was so critical of the romantic accessory.
‘My boyfriend gave me heart-shaped earrings and a heart-shaped necklace (not matching) and they’re my favourite pieces of jewellery he’s given me,’ one woman wrote.
‘Meh. I’m 43 and still love heart jewellery,’ added a second, while a third said: ‘Okay, I like heart-shaped stuff. Yes, I know, I need a lobotomy.’
A fourth said she would never wear ‘tacky’ heart-shaped pieces but likes classic heart-shaped lockets and pendants that have compartments for photos of family and friends.
