    Well it's nearly here again the festive lottery is upon us once more. No not the lotto, the buying of presents for the wife that is never what they wanted, get it wrong you are in the doghouse, ask what they want beforehand then on the day there is no surprise, no thought gone into it so you are in the doghouse, spend too much "we can't afford it", you guessed it! spend too little and you spoiled the day, in the doghouse! Had no idea what to buy her this year but we need a new kennel, the old one has worn out!! :drink:

    More chance of winning the Lotto than getting the "Right" present.

    We went through the airport a couple of years ago and she brought some perfume because she liked the smell of it. Not knowing what it was called I remembered the name being a single word so last year I searched high and low trying to get some more of the stuff, eventually the name clicked, Angel, so I got it and wrapped it for the big day believing I finally got something right......NO, Turns out she hates the smell of Angel perfume! and they wonder why we don't understand them!!

    Good choice the iRoning board, I bought my wife the iRon. She loved it, she found it was just the right size and weight for whacking me round the head. :eek: :LOL::LOL:

    You need to listen for the signs.

    "Oh that's nice, I need one of those" translates to "I want one of those but don't you dare buy it for me for Christmas".
    "I'm not to sure about that ...." translates to " You can buy me that if you're really thick"
    " Don't spend a fortune on me this year!" translates to "You better part with some serious cash this year you tight-wad"
    "I most definitely do not want one of those!" (usually in reference to handbags, shoes, jewellery) translates to "Buy me that or die!"

    Steer clear of anything clothing or household related!
    If all else fails - Diamonds!!!!!

    I still remember my 30th birthday present that Mr SB bought me - a George Foreman grill.

    Even the guys at work knew that it was a mistake and promptly told him so.
