Cranium Kruncher: Don’t You Dare Buy This Christmas Present For Your Wife
We continue our Christmas shopping theme today. Yesterday we learned that the one thing that Christmas shoppers hate the most is finding a place to park. But, for me, the #1 issue is WHAT to buy – for a woman. It’s enough to drive a man crazy.
Today’s Cranium Kruncher doesn’t help.Although women like it, and it usually has a pleasant scent, 44% of people surveyed said this is the most thoughtless gift they could receive. Immediately, my thoughts went to candles. Women DO tend to love them, but clearly a candle is a gift that requires little thought. Flowers would be a good answer here as well. But, no. The answer, surprisingly is – SOAP!
On the surface, soap seems to be a safe bet and well-liked gift – IF it’s packaged in some unique shape in a nice basket along with some lotion, perfume, and other womanly items.But, apparently soap by itself does not cut it as a proper gift for a woman. It’s possible she will think you are sending a hint that she smells bad.(and maybe she does, and maybe you ARE) But, regardless, soap-on-a-rope has apparently lost its charm.
Now I’m back to the drawing board- with 13 shopping days to go.
