    If you were working on losing weight, would it be in bad taste to give a weight loss help gift?

    A friend is trying to lose weight to get into an awesome dress for her daughter's wedding.  I am working on losing weight as well and have been successful with a particular product.  Would it be in bad taste to give her a gift of the product for Christmas.  I believe it will help her and she will be thrilled in the long run!  However, I would NEVER do anything to hurt her feelings!  I can't afford to just give it to her as a "just because" kind of gift.  Any help would be appreciated!!

    Mmmm, it's a tricky one.  I think it would be ok to send it if you were also trying to lose weght (so you were kind of networking and sharing weight loss info anyway), otherwise, I think I would avoid it.  People can sometimes be quite sensitive even if they pretend they're not bothered.

    hello prektjr,
    Losing weight is a great problem dear i myself tried many useless products.getting back to your question gift is a gift dear and any thing given with love is precious you love and care for your friend  so you are bit worried about hurting her feelings but i think as loving and caring you are you will be able to convince your friend about your feelings.so don't worry and go ahead.
    All the best to you and your friend too.
    enjoy the Christmas festival  with love and care
    take care

    It depends on the sensitivity of the person. Test the water before. My friend gave me some exercise elastic for Pilates after I gave birth and I appreciate it still two years later.
    You can try talking about that with her to see what she thinks about it. I she is comfortable and tells you about her goals and more. Give it to her, but not in public.

    Personally, I would not do it.  Unless you truly know that such a gift would be welcomed, she may take it the wrong way and be offended by such a gift. Now, if you both have been discussing weight loss and you feel secure in doing this, it may be ok. But if you have any doubt at all...it may be better to give her something else for Christmas. I hope my opinion is of help.

      Thanks, but I have lost over 87 pounds and kept it off without pills, dieting or exercise.  This is NOT an avenue to share your business links.  It is a question about good taste in gift giving.

    It sure won't be. It is in good intention that you want to give her a gift and want to help her with her endeavor so just go on. It is up to her if she'll misinterpret your kindness. You may also want to visit http://bodytreatmentcenter.com/ to learn more about losing weight.

      Thank you for responding to the question.  However, it IS in bad taste to share your own link on a response to a question.  I personally lost 87 pounds and have kept it off using the It Works! Body Slimming Applicator Wraps.  I am a distributor.
