    I think I will put this trip on our fridge. With bells on.

    Why not put a list of things you might want on the fridge?

    I realize there are many men like that…on the other hand, it’s also just another tired stereotype about men’s “insensitivity”..

    What IS that thing?

    @Jim Guess

    I was wondering the same thing. What on earth is it? From this angle it resembles a meat masher. (I know there’s another term for it, but you know what I mean.)

    I’d much rather be given an appliance than jewelry… um, assuming it’s something I need and isn’t a shoddy piece of junk.

    Actually, you can. My mother does not wear jewelry. It seems that she is allergic to gold on her skin.

    I thought it was some sort of hand sander attachment.

    If you want to give them that then you must give also a personal gift.

    If you give a gift, it IS important to know the person. I’m so glad to be past the time when we exchanged gifts with parents and brother. I was always stressed from trying NOT to give the same ol’ (which was usually what they wanted) and I received some things I cannot SAY and others too ugly for words. My boyfriend always gave me things I loved, whether it was that stand mixer I mentioned already, a new water heater or thermostat (both installed by him) or a pretty nightgown. He has good taste.

    Like father in law like son….of course, it is also an astounding male stereotype. The majority of us know well better.

    There was one Christmas that all my wife wanted was a new vacuum cleaner. Even told me which make (not, thank God, a Dyson; have you priced those things!?). As my wife’s side has Austrian in it (her mom was a full-blooded Austrian; my wife was born in Vienna), the family gathers on Christmas Eve to open presents. When my wife opened the vacuum, her sister unloaded on me. My wife handled the return fire just fine, thank you.
