Sam, 45 and a mother-of-two, insists that her husband Rick, is the lousiest gift buyer anywhere. She says “everytime we start opening presents he prefaces the exercise by telling me to not get excited and (it’s usually good advice)”
It all got started she says when as a first gift, she received a set of teaspoons. “From there it went downhill. I have received clothes pegs, tea towels, air fresheners, cans of WD-40, and dishwashing gloves. When I complained that he never bought me flowers, I received bags of self-raising and plain cooking flour!”
We used to kid my Dad about gifts because he used to have fall-back sort of universal gift – a box of Black Magic Chocolates!
And how did you fare this year? 🙂
