Is it Gender or Personality?

we are putting on an After Christmas Party tomorrow, which is half business and half just fun, and we needed to buy about 50 small gifts for a swap. Most of them needed to be under $5.00, some between $5.00 & $10.00, and a few over $10.00. So my husband and I each took a basket and went off gathering gift items for this party.

My basket:
A tin of Scottish shortbread cookies. Status: rejected as most people are probably on diets.
A pottery cookie stamp and recipe card; a real find at 50% off. Status: rejected as nobody makes cookies anymore.
A jar of organic blueberry jam made from local Maine blueberries. Status: rejected as too boring.
A sock wild bird feeder. Status: rejected as nobody would want it.
A clown fish zip drive: Status: "Okay."
A box of colored pencils and cool sharpener. Status: "Hmmm"
A jar of locally made apple smoked sea salt: Status: Boring

His basket:
Five zombie finger puppets
A rubber chicken that has a gelatinous egg which pops out of it's rectum when you squeeze it
A book entitled, "Farts Around the World"
A glass skull filled with vodka
An octopus tentacle mustache
An adult vibrating ring ("We'll find out who's naughty and nice!")
A wind-up shark
A bobble-head dashboard Jesus


I love the boy to pieces, but sometimes I wonder how we ever met...

Heehee oh my goodness, what a basket he had...

I must say I'd kill for the stuff in yours, Captain Evil. They're a bit conservative, sure, but that's generally a good thing with presents unless you know the person or people REALLY well!

I can completely understand where both of you are coming from. However, I'd say that the determining factor would be the people attending the event. (And who's going to say 'no' to shortbread?!)

It must be a gender thing. I would want absolutely nothing in your basket, but most of the stuff in his basket is pretty cool...

If I send you my address, may I have your basket? If he's shopping for men perhaps his basket should include: hanky, hand sanitizer, razor, cologne, stain stick, bathroom deodorizer spray and a spare set of car keys. (Preparing to get smacked for that posting). LOL

I'd say gender. I'm sorry, folks, but some stuff in his basket just "yack" on my list.

May I have cookies even though I'm on a diet? That would be the best one out of 2 lists!
