Finding a beautiful and practical gift is always a challenge. However, when choosing, you should also take into account certain superstitions. SSPDaily has advised against giving three things to avoid bringing misfortune and problems.

Watches

Watches are meant to tell the time and help us be punctual, but in many cultures, they are associated with counting down the minutes to the end of life. Therefore, giving them as a gift, especially to an elderly person, can be a bad omen, signifying the limited time they have left to live.

In Chinese culture, the phrase "giving a watch" sounds like "giving a funeral," which is considered a very negative gesture. Instead, consider alternatives such as a beautiful piece of jewelry or an interesting book.

Sharp objects

Sharp objects, like knives, scissors, or can openers, may seem like practical gifts, but they can symbolize the breaking off of relationships, conflict, or danger. To avoid bringing bad luck, choose safer options like kitchen utensils, gardening tools, or even a cozy blanket.

Sets of four

In many Asian cultures, the number four is considered extremely unlucky, as it sounds like the word for "death." Therefore, it is considered bad luck to give things in sets of four. It's better to choose gifts in sets of three or five, which are considered lucky numbers symbolizing harmony and balance.
