Steel underwear

Finding gifts for people has never been all that hard for me. I don’t exactly enjoy shopping, but I don’t mind it all that much. But I have found it becomes much more difficult when you’re trying to follow some sort of theme. Like with anniversaries, where each year is different… for instance, first is paper, second is cotton, and tenth is tin or aluminum (!). All I know is that for year three, we’re switching lists from traditional to modern.

Where do you find your gift-giving inspiration for those unique gifts?

I've been following the traditional list every year. Year 11 was steel - I found these cool hand made steel candlesticks from Africa, year 12 was silk, I found silk jewelry from some artist in NM. I find the theme helps me by focusing the search a bit.

I am a big fan of catalog shopping. I get the weirdest catalogs that that things I have never thought of. Also, in terms of anniversaries and other themed gifts I really rely on the internet. Places like redenvelope.com will provide gifts for themes. I use that as a starting point and either buy it from there or start searching for bargins elsewhere

To many people who are married or about to get married pay to much attention to wedding ceremonies and anniversaries and not enough to the marriage itself. I think that this is the cause of a lot of divorces.



What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
