    What Christmas presents have you received that are "dangerous or inappropriate" this year?

    Last year a friend of mine bought his wife an iron & lived!!!!

    Ps: he bought his wife an ironing board for her birthday!

    Have a great Christmas folks.

    Suitable Non denominational greetings,

    You lot are amateurs.
    I once bought Mrs Emmit a......wait for it.....
    Low Level W.C. and bowl (in a delightful shade of, and I jest you not, liquid diahorrea??) (Yes, that brown) and we're still married to each other.
    How could I not resist it. It was in a fire sale, and how can a fire damage fireclay? It was only £20.

    I'm not a Tyke with a scottish mother for nothing!!!

    C'mon. Beat that.

    I bought Gwen an electric shower one year.
    We needed one but didn't have much money that year.
    I think I got an electric drill that year.
    We were both happy.
    It was a lot of years ago.

    My wife's birthday is 3 days before Xmas, so when the kids were younger and I struggled to think what they could get her for her birthday and then Xmas, I used to be say a pair of gloves - she got the right hand for her birthday and the left hand for her Xmas...

    Not a very understanding woman.....she lost it when she got a left slipper for her birthday - she was hopping mad...

    Can't really understand why..

    Some people have no sense of style. She should have waited for a Rolls.

    I ordered a "Give the Lady a Sense of Humour Kit' for Dawn B. But City Link went bust rather then deliver to her nest. x:-)

    last year I bought her in doors a tow rope this year I bagut a ratchet spanner seat for her.
    When she opened it up she was so overcome by emotion.
    The doctor says the swelling should go down in a few days and the bruising should go in abut to weeks
    all joking aside I learnt Frome last year I never used to tow rope but I am sure the spanner will come in handy.

    You slipped up buying her the old fashioned iron and ironing board. Just think how many more browny points you would have got buying them from Apple, my wife loves her new iRon and iRoning board.:xrofl:

    I got the boss a huge ironing board from tescos a couple of years ago but I softened the blows by telling her it was a surf board first under the wrappings.
