    For guys I'd be getting novelty bottles of whiskey and the like, BBQ tongs, humour/joke books, dangly car thingos, ridiculously bouncy little rubber ball, bottle opener/corkscrew, a few cool keyrings, car bumper stickers, etc.

    For the ladies: a pastry brush, one of those mini-cookbooks (they're usually under $10), a nice little box or two, novelty bottles of kahlua or midori (or similar), a nice home-style jam/marmalade/chutney, small pack of fancy tea, a few decorative keyrings, dangly car thingos of the more feminine kind, car bumper stickers, etc.

    ETA: I would want the zombie finger puppets, glass skull, and mustache - but I'd be a little freaked by the chicken and the vibrating ring (if that truly is what I think it is...), very freaked (in a different way) by the dashboard Jesus, and bored silly by the book on farts. I fail to see any humour in farts or toilets, so am clearly missing out on something

    May I have cookies even though I'm on a diet? That would be the best one out of 2 lists!
    What could possibly be "yack" about a rubber chicken you can punch in the gut and shoot a jelly egg out of its butt across the room, or an octopus tentacle mustache? Geez - you just have no class...

    I think it's a bit of both gender and personality. I, being an immature teenager, giggled at some of the stuff he picked. However, who could say no to cookies and food in general!?

    Haha, too funny, OP. Yes, I think it is gender. Men do not tend to like to shop, and as a result when they are forced to they don't think "practical", or ...idk, think, period.

    The biggest "yack" was about farts! That's definitely not classy!

    Well, we got all 60 gifts wrapped in time for the party, and the most fought over gifts turned out to be a $25.00 certificate toward any diving adventure, followed bu a book/dvd combo, "Great Migrations". The audio book, "Farts Around the World" was also popular, and was traded for several times, as was the potato gun and potato. One woman went to great lengths to obtain the fake poo, only to discover that the poo was plastic, not chocolate. Although I personally cannot imagine sinking my teeth into anything which resembles poo, no matter how chocolatey, she seemed disappointed.

    All in all, I would say that gender played the biggest role in determining who wanted the Turkish Delight or the Funky Avacado Pitter/Peeler and who went for the Glow in the Dark Shark Attack Sticker Book (can you guess which gender wanted which?) although personality and age also entered into it.

    Universally wanted gifts? Beer, Vodka, and Homemade Spiced Rum.

    I don't really like either of the baskets... I think it's more personality than anything.

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. not me
    A pottery cookie stamp and recipe card; a real find at 50% off. Status: rejected as nobody makes cookies anymore. I make cookies all the time, with my cousin and sister, by myself with friends and I know alot of people who do to
    A jar of organic blueberry jam made from local Maine blueberries. Status: rejected as too boring. jam is great, I love jam...blueberries...not so much
    A sock wild bird feeder. Status: rejected as nobody would want it.
    A clown fish zip drive: Status: "Okay." ...I like birds whatever I can do to bring the to my yard I will
    A box of colored pencils and cool sharpener. Status: "Hmmm" would be good for someone artsy
    A jar of locally made apple smoked sea salt: Status: Boring not to somebody who likes to cook, like me

    His basket:
    Five zombie finger puppets pretty cool...kinda useless though
    A rubber chicken that has a gelatinous egg which pops out of it's rectum when you squeeze it ....is he five years old?
    A book entitled, "Farts Around the World" ...see above
    A glass skull filled with vodka cool...the bottle would be cool to keep to put flowers in or something
    An octopus tentacle mustache a what?
    An adult vibrating ring ("We'll find out who's naughty and nice!") ...only to someone you really know
    A wind-up shark seems kinda...pointless
    A bobble-head dashboard Jesus some people might get offended (as a Christian, I'm not but some people do get a bit....up tight


    I love the boy to pieces, but sometimes I wonder how we ever met...
    So that's how I feel about it...
