Tis The Season...
Buying Christmas Gifts for Men:
When in doubt - buy him a cordless drill. It does not matter if he
already has one. As a man, you can never have too many cordless
drills. No one knows why.
If you cannot afford a cordless drill, buy him anything with the word
ratchet or socket in it. Men love saying those two words.
"Hey George, can I borrow your ratchet?" "OK. By-the-way, are you
through with my 3/8-inch
socket yet?" Again, no one knows why.
You can buy men new remote controls to replace the ones they have worn
out. If you have a lot of money, buy your man a big-screen TV with
the little picture in the corner. Watch him go wild as he flips,
and flips, and flips.
Buy men label makers. Almost as good as cordless drills.
Within a couple of weeks there will be labels absolutely everywhere.
"Socks. Shorts. Cups. Saucers. Door. Lock.
Sink." You get the idea. No one knows why.
Never buy a man anything that says "some assembly required" on the box.
It will ruin his Special Day and he will always have parts left over.
No one knows why.
Men enjoy danger. That's why they never cook - but they will
barbecue. (No one knows why).
him a monster barbecue with a 100-pound propane tank. Tell him the
gas line leaks. "Oh the thrill! The challenge! Who
wants a hamburger?"
Men love chain saws. Never, ever, buy a man you love a chain saw.
If you don't know why - please refer to Rule #4 and what happens when he
gets a label maker.
It's hard to beat a really good wheelbarrow or an aluminum extension
ladder. Never buy a real man a stepladder. It must be an
extension ladder. No one knows why.
Rope. Men love rope. It takes us back to our cowboy origins, or at
least The Boy Scouts. Nothing says love like a hundred feet of
3/8" manila rope. No one knows why.
