SO funny! THanks for the chuckle:)

Kim Ayres said...

ok, but how about a clue as to what you DO want???

Attila The Mom said...

Kim---Surprise us! ;-)

Makes me think of the lawn mower my husband got me for my last birthday. I wonder what I could have done to him with that, LOL.

My husand once got me new silverware for my birthday and was so pleased with himself I didn't have the heart to stab him with the forks.

And my ex husband once got me a windscreen wiper!

Kim Ayres said...

Just to plead the male case for a moment...

How can we surprise anyone when anything could be catastrophically wrong? Anything practical is a no-no and will end up inserted as per video; clothes will inevitably be the wrong size/cut/colour/material/design; as will jewelry; food is always wrong because every woman in the world is on a diet; perfume will be the wrong smell (and probably too cheap if it's under $600 dollars a bottle; a book/CD/DVD is too boring; and an Amazon gift voucher is a cop out.

If we check that she'd like it first we've spoiled the surprise and if we don't we will get it wrong.

Although I have to admit even I would never consider a windscreen wiper - that was a poor show

Attila The Mom said...

Kim---ask her to give you a list of things she'd love to have. That way she'll be semi-surprised and you'll be king for the day.

My husband bought me a real neat Cole Haan handbag for Christmas. He just doesn't know it yet.

LOL

Hey....just be glad you have a man to shop for you....at least you can return the item and get something you really want. Me....I just have to hope my parents get it right....sometimes ;)

Sharing this with everyone I know who will appreciate it!

KL said...

Oh...and could your hubby maybe get me something special too ATM?

Big Pissy said...

Cash....cash is ALWAYS the right size. ;-)

KL said...

are you kidding? If I bring home Dyson I'm sure that wouldnt be the dog house....

RC said...

kim ayers, thanks for pleading the men's case...

some men don't try...and some do.

but even when we try...there's only so many possibilities out there...and between christmas, birthday, valentine's day, and "just because" at somepoint we start to feel like we've run out of good ideas.

Enjoy your Cole Haan handbag...I'm sure it's just the one your husband was going to pick out for you :-)

My wife is 5'6" and size 10, which Lord and Taylor assures me is medium.

Her silver pattern is Towle Chippendale, her crystal is Lismore by Waterford, both the regular and high end china are Royal Doultan (sp), but she has full sets there and doesn't want more.

She likes silver jewlery.

It is a simple Chistmas this year as she is retired and I got caught in the meltdown.

Her main present she asked for, she is also getting a gift certificate for a cheese making course, a bottle of Glen Livet (the first year she got a bottle it was the only gift and was not wrappe, just in the box; it was also wearing a custom silver necklace that was into 4 figure) and the stove is giving her an 1972Italian cookbook (her copy has lost the cover). The stove always gives her a cookbook.


She bought the vacum.

Made me LMAO!!!!!!!!! Merry Christmas ATM. You rock as always.

karatemom said...

hahaaha my hub made the mistake two years ago of buying me a swiffer for christmas while he got a beautiful entertainment unit he had been hinting of for months.

All guys need to do is listen to us ALL the time not just a couple of days before christmas and they will have many ideas of what we like, what colour, where to find it...and on and on.

Then there is the case of the man that thinks that you really don't want what you are saying cause they think you will like what they want to get you more. ..NO..when I said I like carnations ..i meant I like carnations..yes the roses you bought are quite nice ..but I love carnations..why the hell cant you just buy carnations >>? !! lol ..

get it men ?????

Traceytreasure said...

I love my Dyson. It was one of the best gifts he ever gave me and since I'm usually at work, he even pushes it around. I'm so lucky!!

Oh, and shoes, heelllooooo, that'd be a great gift too!!

Happy holidays to you and yours!!

Big hugs!!
