Well, he was sitting there with his eyes glazed over trying to pretend to be excited about all of the little knick-knacks, towels, kitchen stuff. When she opened mine she got this confused look on her face, then started laughing and tossed the box to him. He finnished unwrapping it and just held it on his lap for a while.

Screw the frilly kitchen deco gifts. Anything in the Sears Home Improvement section makes a great gift, lasts forever, and will be used a bunch.

Imagine your groomsman's faces if they unwrapped a Milwakee reciprocating saw. Now THAT says MAN gift.
And it says EXPENSIVE!

I know what you're saying though.

A man can only fake so much excitement for new potholders and matching kitchen towels.

I think I knew she was the "one" for me when she requested a shop vac for a birthday gift. This was further reinforced when she said "We should register at Sears so you can get cool stuff too".

RRDon LOL!

No I skipped the monogram. I don't really understand that either.

Rug Burn Yeah, but did you monogram the coolers? Put a little Heinie in mine . I still don't get the whole monogram thing. I don't need my initials on stuff to know it belongs to me. Anyone care to explain?

RRDon Just thought I'd give an update on my decision.

I got all of the guys in the wedding coolers. I'm going to put a few of their favorite drinks in each one, so even if they don't like the cooler, they will like the contents.

How about some monogramed squirt guns . So what's the dael with monogramed pens and money clips etc.?

funksouljon Sure was. For 2 years. Perhaps that is why I am so bitter.
Look at me posting during the day!
