Top 10 Christmas Presents Japanese Women Want

santa-kirino-kousaka-ayase-aragaki.jpg

In Japan, Christmas is almost exclusively an occasion for sex and buying things (possibly not in that order) – as a result, gifts to  female partners take on an air of particular importance for any man hoping to spend Christmas at a seedy love hotel and not alone with Nene.

The survey asked 1200 Japanese women in Tokyo, Osaka and Nagoya what they would like to received as a Christmas present (from a spouse or hopeful supplicant) – the ranking:

1. Cosmetic devices

2. Wristwatches

3. Bags

4. IT/AV products (PC, phones, etc.)

5. Home appliances (refrigerators, washing machines, etc.)

6. Flowers

7. Apparel

8. Makeup & perfume

9. Jewellery & accessories

10. Books, CDs, DVDs

For those wondering just what is meant by “cosmetic devices” (an established product category in Japan), examples given include “steamers” (devices placed by the bed at night to moisturise the skin by creating steam), luxury hair-dryers and so on – generally these kinds of items cost around $150-$250.

Men asked how much they anticipated spending on such gift gave an average of ¥20,000, whilst women asked how much they expected their gift to cost indicated a slightly higher figure of ¥21,000 – perhaps not coincidentally just enough for one of Panasonic’s latest steamers.

    Of course this list might want to encourage more otakus into following their crazy Japanese counterparts and assume relationships with inanimate 2D objects that interacts only as much as their programmers allow to.

    Some old man once told me, "Love only brings a man and a woman together. Tolerance is what keeps them that way." That kind of woman who would accept you does exists, but more often than not, otakus have a skewered perception on what women must physically look.

    I only speak from my own experience though that the more stable girls are the ones with looks beginning from slightly-below-average and down. They know they don't have much to offer with their body, so they compensate by staying faithful, while prettier girls tend to adopt this "If he wants to leave me, so what? I have more manwhores lining up for me." mentality.

    I mean if they asked the guys, the guys would probably buy it but you wouldn't normally buy a washing machine or a cosmetic device as a Christmas gift to your family and friends would you?

    Wristwatches and Bags sounds more logical...

    Are you kidding me. Last Christmas I received a washer and dryer for my house and It was a godsend. I no longer waste money at a laundromat and spend my time at home instead of there.

    I guess that works for you, but I still doubt guys giving their girlfriends washing machines...

    It's just not romantic, I mean chocolates, flowers, bags, and jeweleries have so much more meaning to them.

    If a washing machine makes you or the other person happy, then go for it...

    Since it doesn't state what 'end'(high-end, low-end), I think those things are necessities in todays world, so it ain't too ludicrous to ask.

    But wanting to buy expensive shit that's suppose to do something scientific which is hardly backed by any credible research? Fuck that.

    Direct door-to-door sellers often sell that kind of things. Ticks me off to no end.

    Women are materialistic creatures. Learn this list, and you'll have just as good chances to impress your beloved as in any other part of the world.

    (except for, well, Africa maybe, in that country [http://img210.imageshack.us/i/trollface.jpg/] people have no electric supply in their huts where to plug skin moisturizing steamers in the first place. >_> )

    Have you seen the price of refrigerators nowadays? Makes sense to me.

    'gifts to female partners take on an air of particular importance for any man hoping to spend Christmas at a seedy love hotel and not alone with Nene'
    ...Can't help but feel a bit of spite there, mr. writer. Whatever happened to love?

    If things on the list are just the 'nice to have, but I don't DEMAND it' types, it ain't a big deal. Darkrockslizer made it seem like it's mandatory to give those things to keep a relationship in check. Like a bunch of hookers trading nothing but two hours of company and 5 seconds of sex only she want to cum from. If I had to choose, I'd rather pay hookers: I can bang them however I want, when I want, without commitment whatsoever.

    And here I thought that it's the thought that counts. If someone's willing to give something to you even when the thing is just self-made, that's already something you appreciate.

    In any case, I say none of those women deserve any men. Get to work and buy your own fucking bling-bling.
