I think it's safe to assume we figured that out. Cus if you were inscribing stuff on a gift to your wife with the name of some random guy, then I'd be confused.

I still haven't exactly figured out what to get my sweetie for valentine's day.. she's pretty obsessed with LUSH so it might come from there.

Alternatively, I might get her a shag pillow or something -- she has a creepy pillow fetish, and I think that'd make her happy.

I got someone very special a betta fish. Since I'm leaving on V-day I left it in his apartment (his roomie was a round) as a surprise for him today. If he doesn't like the little guy his roomie and I are probably going to have to have a death match over it, since we're both quite taken with it. This would be a problem for me because I'm both smaller and saner than the roommate.

Update: the fish was much appreciated. No death match for me. Woohoo!

I got red roses and some Godiva truffles. Josh got a Skagen watch that he has wanted for years. And tomorrow we are going for our picnic. [Smile]

Well, sometimes it does help to put a pillow under her rump, for angle...

Use full gifts are not good on certain occasions, Valentines, Birthdays, Christmas, These days require that the gift not be associated with work or housework in any way shape or conjecture.. Even if you purpose was to lighten the load of the person the gift was for it will come as an insult.

What other holidays would you give gifts on?

Well, I'm female, and I wouldn't take it as an insult. And I believe Black Widow agrees as well... Unless he does it all the time, it's not a problem. A guy taking special interest in something you do daily (or almost daily) is really nice.

I will agree again. One of the best Christmas presents I ever got was a Scat Dragfast shifter for my VW Bug. That was sah-weeeet!

I got a hyacinth. I need to repot it, but it'll be pretty when it blooms. And some glass baking dishes. I like the hyacinth better.

Well Twink & BW _________If I had married one of you maybe I would not have gone through a divorce twenty five years ago, other occasions Mothers day grand parents day sweetest day, St Patricks , it all depends upon your point of reference. Plants and Flowers, or Candy in small quantities, do well with my present wife. Electric Fry pan, blender, washing machine, dryer, dishwasher while practical do not score well.

I also found out if you come home from work and greet the dog and make sure that s/he has food and water, and your SO exclaimns "you care more about that dog than you do us" DO NOT REPLY WITH "well at least she wags her tail when I come home"

Like MoMan said. How cool it would be to bring home a bored-out Rodchester carb and say "look honey this will add at least 3 seconds to your 1/4 mile trap speeds." Ah well, I guess that is what I get for marrying a girly-girl.
