Don't ask me how I know this, but if you buy your wife clothing of any kind, always buy 2-3 sizes smaller than she needs. Oh, and never, ever say, "Well it looked good on that girl in Victoria's Secret".

well, this year I can't help but nail it. we're each buying & wrapping our own present - my wife's suggestion. I know she's got her eye on a piece of jewelry, though I don't know exactly what. I do know she'll like it  :D  and I'm going to get myself Glenmorangie Signet, a very special bottle of single malt. more expensive than I'd usually spend on whisky, but certainly less than her gift. we'll both be happy.

old... I can't stand any commercial on radio or TV that makes it look like men are f'n stupid when it comes to buying their wifes gifts... and 'you have to buy jewerly' to do it right... f'n insulting! Granted a commercial like this is not only funny but true, not all of us are like this...

Every year one of the family will get a gag gift from me, nobody knows who the target is except me.  I once gave my wife a "diamond necklace" all wrapped up nice in a jewelry store box.  It was a 1" diamond core drilling bit I got at work with a ceiling fan pull cord for the necklace.  Sure the diamonds were tiny but "honey there are about 200,000 of them".  Of course a gift like that requires something else extra special to stay out of the Doghouse.

That takes the cake for gag gifts. My best was to my sister which was a light bulb in a cardboard tube with packing material in another tube with 10 rolls of duck tape. I do this every year to my sister. I pay more for tape the the item. and on take note i need ideas for her gag gift.

I've been known to wrap gifts in layers with the last one being a centerfold or the like.  Always a hit at Grand Ma's house with the nieces just back from college.   :D

In other news, a local man was discovered under his tree on Christmas morning, suffocated with saran wrap. Police suspect organized crime involvement, saying that the murder appeared to be a "message" to those who have been especially naughty this year.

How long do you think before she lets you out?  I give it a day or two.
