Australian women overwhelmingly agree on the one gift they never want to receive on Christmas – and it’s unfortunately a popular choice.

Heart-shaped jewellery has been labelled ‘tacky’ and ‘juvenile’ by thousands of women who dread receiving it as a present.

In the lead up to the holiday season, hundreds of social media posts have resurfaced begging men to reconsider, with an X post reading: ‘Your girlfriend doesn’t want heart-shaped jewellery, I promise you.’

‘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.’

Many claim that the present is an ‘easy’ way to avoid thinking about what women really want as it is usually on the top of online gift guides.

A viral TikTok revealed a woman, Alexandra, playing out a scenario as a ‘subtle’ reminder.

‘Wow, you got me heart jewellery – something I’ve never asked for or said I liked, ever,’ she said after opening the gift.

Her boyfriend then shared that he got the idea from an Instagram post titled ‘thoughtful gifts for women’ and put ‘zero effort’ into it.

Hundreds said the common present was ‘gaudy’ and ‘childish’.

Another added, ‘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.’

‘A dear friend of mine from high school has a heart-shaped diamond solitaire. It just looks so childish,’ one wrote.

Many shared that they took issue with the lack of effort rather than the present itself.

‘It’s about paying attention to what your partner likes and putting effort into choosing your loved one’s gift,’ one said.

‘I got my ex a custom-made jacket from his favourite anime of his favourite character, and he got me a $15 perfume I already own,’ a woman wrote.

Another shared, ‘I bought my ex almost the entire limited edition release from his favourite clothing brand, and he got me a Funko Pop for a character I didn’t even know.’

‘My ex once gave me back socks I had given to him for Christmas on Valentine’s Day,’ a woman said.

But not everyone was so critical of the romantic accessory. 

‘I love simple heart jewellery. None of that weird uneven swirly stuff – just shaped like a cute rounded heart,’ a woman claimed.
