Please read this What Men Really Want for Christmas
You have got to be kidding me.
Was this article even written by a man? Or was it written by a woman who thinks any of these gifts are what men really want? I get that men like gadgets, so I’ll give a pass on the cameras, the phones and their accessories. I fail to see how most of these items are practical and really what a man would want for Christmas.
If I bought my husband, dad, or brother the cowboy shirt or soda fizzer, they probably would think I was on drugs. If I paid over $200 for a toothbrush, I probably am on drugs. This also applies to the $500 tent, as none of the men in my life have use for a $20 tent, let alone one that costs $500 and only fits two people.
How about $60 for a 1-lb box of chocolate-covered jalapenos? If that doesn’t scream disgusting and heartburn at the same time, I don’t know what does. Now if it was chocolate-covered bacon, the men I know might like that.
Let’s not forget about the chainsaw. Oh, the chainsaw. Unless you live in the wilderness and like to cut down trees in your spare time, how is this a good gift idea? Or, perhaps you know a lumberjack. I’m sure a lumberjack would like a new chainsaw for Christmas. If you have ever gifted a chainsaw, please contact me directly. Unless you are a lumberjack, then there is no explanation needed.
Last, but of course not least, the car. If I bought my husband a Mustang for Christmas, he would use it as grounds for divorce, but that’s not even my point. Unless your Jennifer Lopez and gifting Bentley’s to your latest boy-toy, I highly doubt that anyone is going to be buying a car for the man in their life. Sure, the commercials are out there again, Santa delivering your brand new red Mercedes, opening your front door and finding a shiny new Lexus with a big red bow on it…..you get my point.
As I think this article points out possibly the dumbest gifts ever, I’d like to know what you’ve bought the men in your life for Christmas this year. There has got to be better ideas than those written in this article.
