    Any guy who has been married for 5 years and says he hasn't been sent there is a bald-faced liar. I lasted 3 years, when we were coming up on our 3rd anniversary and she had just had our first child. I knew she loved kitchen stuff, so I went out and bought her a deep-fat fryer. I probably would have been all right except I had to open my mouth and say, "now honey, we don't even have to use it until you've lost that baby-fat." . . . :shock: . . . ops: . . . :x . . . . . . luckily I was sent off to Spain for a month-long Navy detachment soon thereafter or my DH time would have been longer.

      How about getting a broom in the store and saying "don't bother to wrap it up, she'll fly it home"? ops: 8-)

        I'm a guy, and I'm the thorough "cleaner" in the family (its a military thing), and I would love a new Dyson vacuum for Christmas :shock:

          I think this is all about not meeting expectations. You have to know what your wife/girlfriend thinks is an appropriate birthday or holiday gift. The doghouse video is funny but it shouldn't be taken as advice for everyone. I do know women who would not be at all pleased if their husbands gave them a small piece of jewelry from J.C. Penney.

            That is the key.

              Yes, but that's often easier said than done.

                Especially if they turn up their noses at jewelry (no matter where it's from!).
                My wife never has. My sources have been: a Turkish bazaar (beautiful artistry & very cheap), Amsterdam (ditto), local malls on close-out specials. She liked them all the same.

                  You mean, you did not go to Jared?

                    Keys always work. Keys to the new (you fill in the blank.)

                    Actually, candlesticks always make a nice gift.

                        Even more important, don't mix up your wife's wishes with your girlfriend's . . .

                        :P :wink:

                          Maybe tandfman's girlfriend has the same taste as his wife when it comes to gifts?

                            Mrs. tandfman is both my wife and my girlfriend. It makes things so-o-o-o-o much easier!
