    Men and thoughtful gifts are not necessarily a match made in heaven. Mr DD got it crackingly right one Christmas when he gave me a pink DAB radio. At least Mr Mig has someone to consult. :wink: DD

    I totally disagree DD I bought my wife a head torch so she could do the gardening at night seeming she's to busy in the day washing me smalls, cleaning the house and making me copious cups of T and all day, if she could only multitask she'd be able to get a few hours kip of a night!. :roll:

    Mine bought me a ring once but never popped the question :( . And a thing to wee into and a BP monitor once but now plays safe and buys me charms for my bracelet!

    He likes to buy me underwear and suspenders but not really any point nowadays as can barely get in and out of my pyjamas. :roll:

    Having said that I've given up with the rest of his family. I now don't ask what they want and just buy something I hope they will like, but don't care if they don't, which is what they do for me.

    I've just spotted your cracking reply, Mel - :lol::lol::lol: . I find Mr DD hard to buy for, well, actually, men generally. (And by men I mean the ones I know, which isn't that many. Shall I stop digging? :? ) Us girls can be fairly easily pleased with pretties, smellies or sparklies but blokes? How many socket sets can one man want? Especially if (like mine) he hasn't a clue what to use them for? Or socks, for that matter?

    mike26, I think you are spot on. You may be damned if you do and damned if you don't. We're tricky creatures :wink: which is one of the reasons why we are so entrancing. DD

    I think the problem is that men never really grow up. Inside most of us is the little boy still wanting to play with toys. When my Daughter was born 47 years ago for her first Christmas she was 9 months old I bought her a scale electric racing set. I thought it was a great idea but Mrs C made me return it to the shop. I still but boys toys for the grandkids but not everyone appreciates bows and arrows and guns. Mrs C loves painting but all those books on how to paint are still unread in the bookcase.
