Our Zomsters Giveaway Ends Tonight at 8pst!
The other day I was oohing and aahing over all the online holiday gift guides when my husband Andrew happened to walk by. This was his response to a certain ‘Gift Guide for Him’ I was perusing: “No guy would want any of that stuff.”
So I asked him, “well sir, what would YOU put in a Holiday Gift Guide?” And this is the result:
Andrew here. First things first. No candles or pillows. Unless you live in a house without furniture or electricity. Then those might come in handy. Otherwise, just turn on the lights. And chances are, you already have a pillow. Do you really need a new one? (Melissa: YES.) With some kind of embroidery and sequins and whatnot? Pillows are for resting your head on while you sleep, not for decoration or taking up space on the furniture. (So wrong.)
Enough about what not to get. Here are some better ideas for gifts. Melissa wants me to add “for dudes”, but really these gift ideas are just common sense for anyone. Would you really prefer a scented candle to the latest Zelda game? (Melissa: YES.) If you answered “yes”, you can stop reading now. Check back tomorrow for the next post.
According to the reviews, this is one of the greatest entries in the greatest video game series of all time. If you own a Wii, get this. (Note: Melissa wants me to put something funny here, but I can’t think of anything. Zelda is nothing to joke about.)
Bouquet of Flowers No. 108 is the manliest of teas.
Irish Breakfast Tea is far superior to English Breakfast Tea. (Note to readers: Melissa is sitting behind me trying to edit me as I type. I’m trying to ignore her, so please bear with me.)
I’m wearing this right now. Melissa keeps trying to steal it from me.
(Note from Melissa: Maybe if I got my own fleece pullover, I wouldn’t need to steal his! Sadly the men’s pullovers seem pretty picked over but man, does Andrew love this thing. He wears it all the time! Great gift idea if/when it comes back in stock. Wish they made a women’s version.)
The Wild Bunch is one of the greatest films of all time. Melissa refuses to watch it with me. She refuses to watch any Sam Peckinpah movies with me. She only made it a couple of minutes into Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia. (Actually I believe I fell asleep.)
These books are good. If you like sci-fi or fantasy you should check them out.
Note: ‘Twilight’ does not fall into either of these categories. (Melissa: Say WHAT?)
If you like it, read the other two books in the series. Then the sequel to the series. Then Vol 1 and Vol 2 of the next series. Then the next series after that. (Melissa: Can anyone make ANY sense of this?)
Cookies are a great gift. This up here is a cookie.
This is not a cookie. When you put frosting on a cookie it turns it into cake, and cake is gross.
(Melissa: wrong, wrong….wrongitty wrong. I can tell that this will yet another year where we battle over how many Christmas sugar cookies get icing, and how many do not. Sigh.)
So there you have it. Merry Christmas.
