Do you believe in superstitions? In my case, I do. I'm a very superstitious person because I believe that there are cause of events that can be stopped if you've never did a specific act. In line with this gift giving season, here are few of the superstitious beliefs I know in choosing what gift should you not opt to give this Christmas. It may or may not be true but there's nothing wrong to follow them. It's your life anyway.
If you'd like to give someone a gift that involves stuffing money inside like a wallet, a purse, bag, coinbank and the like, please put money inside it in odd amounts (P5.00, P11.00, P51.00) plus it is a belief that money won't run out with the recipient of your gift.

It is a belief that if you give shoes to someone, let the recipient give you money in return in any amount because it will be assumed that the shoes was not really gratuitously given but with a price. This means that the recipient will walk away from you if you'll give him a footwear as a gift. Also, giving shoes to your boyfriend or girlfriend will cause a break up because shoes always need to be in pair. However, this superstition is not applicable to married people.

9. Hairbrush or comb
It means that your secrets will soon be revealed by the receiver. It is advisable to accompany a box to keep the hairbrush or comb so that your secrets will be safe.
These stuffs signifies deception and hypocrisy. The scent or smell of perfumes or colognes will soon fade away as time goes by and you don't want this to happen with your relationship with the receiver. Make-ups are use to cover up imperfections but it is a belief that the receiver will soon deceive you.
