Men are from mars, women are from venus

I think that the difference between men and women is never more apparent than when faced with the task of buying gifts.

Whilst buying gifts for my mother, or girlfriend, or 'girl-pals' requires weeks or forethought and planning, buying gifts for guys is a much simpler affair. For instance, here in the UK, father's day is coming up. It's still over a week away and I hadn't even thought about what I am going to get him but I stumbled across something in the shops today which I immediately knew was the perfect gift.

It was.... drumroll... a 3.5kg jar of pickled onions.


Straight away I knew it was perfect. I'll let you know what he thinks next week. :D

  1. That is ridiculous! Will he actually appreciate that?
    I find my father extremely hard to buy for.
    The girlies - flowers, smelly crap or chocolates, no?

  7. As a proud non-father, I can safely say that I would be disappointed in pickled onions. I've never even heard of pickeling onions. But, best of luck!
