• The British complaining about her husband, who gives her for Christmas only useful gifts
Probably, many women are faced with the fact that the faithful gave the feast, not quite what we would like. For example, instead of the desired pan diamond necklace. Perhaps men think that the pan is useful, but the necklace to use in everyday life is difficult in the economy. So, this is not a bad alignment. Briton Sam Broad complains that her husband for 15 years gives her really the worst gifts for Christmas. They include: towels, nails, WD-40, and rubber gloves.
The tradition of giving only "useful" gifts began 15 years ago, when Rick Broad presented to his wife a set of teaspoons. Since her husband's gifts do not cease to surprise Sam. Rick touted wife and towels and rubber gloves, and even road de-icer.
"Gifts Rica has become an occasion for jokes among my friends. I have a hanger, an air freshener, paracetamol, garbage bags, "- says Sam.
Sam believes that such a dubious choice due to the difference in age, as Rick older than his wife of 17 years. "It may have played a role, and the fact that he served in the army for a long time, so accustomed to such practicality everywhere and in everything."
Rick himself is nothing wrong with their gifts do not see and would prefer to give practical things.
"What's the point to buy gifts that will fly later in the trash? But these practical gifts can be used again and again. Every time, when my wife puts on rubber gloves, she reminisces about Christmas. "
Rick Sometimes even humorously refers to gifts.
"I once complained to Rick that he never gives me flowers. And he took it and gave me then the flour (in English words flower (flowers) and flour (flour) are similar in sound - Ed...) ", - said Sam.
Sam complains every time with friends and family to choose from Costa Rica, but according to her, did not imagine the holiday without these strange gifts.
"She always complains to friends on the phone. But I think that the only reason why it has not killed me, - my gifts she really likes. These surprises have become a tradition in our house, and I will never stop buying them ", - said Rick.
