Its sexism at work and I won't stand for it.
Because women do more shopping than men Funk, and the bastards who do market research have figured out that we'll pay more.

I would tell you that a good bottle of booze and leaving the house with your child was a good idea, but then i remembered Mrs. Funk is pregnant. I'm not a flower person, I prefer them growing in the ground so I can sit near them and get wrecked, so can't advise you there.

You already do some of the cooking which is an awesome gift. If my husband wrote on a piece of paper "I will cook 3 nights a week for 3 months without b!tching" I'd, well, I can't write it, young eyes might see.

You can't go wrong with a GC to a store where you know she shops or, go with her and help her pick it out, "help" her try it on in the fitting room if they'll let you.

I'm a heathen pagan (at least that's what this Russian Orthodox b!tch I used to know thought) but I love sneakily finding out what people like and getting it for them. It provides that evil rush, but it isn't really. This is an advanced maneuver and probably not for dudes anyway.

Sorry for the wall of text.

I forgot you bastards have Tim Horton's to now.
Sadly, it's not here in Missouri. As far as I know, it's just in Ohio, though I could be wrong. I've always wanted to eat at Timmy Ho's.

The stuff other than the coffee and donuts is meh. The coffee and donuts more than make up for it, though.

once I brought bear claws from there to work and my coworker says "you are a bad mamma jamma" lmao

Some women who have their own place get very psyched about barware. Or linens. What woman would not want to immediately "christen" 500 thread count sheets?

Peek around in their shower or makeup cabinet (if you can do this without getting caught and whomped) to get an idea of their preferences, then go out and get them "a bunch of girly lotions" in the wise words of Robb2140.

I did my shopping today (the 23rd). The streets were damn chaos, but I got out of it alive.

There is nothing like the awkward feeling of all the males in the perfume and beauty products section of a department store buying gifts for females. We all know that we ordinarily wouldn't be there, but at the same time we don't want to be spotted there by any friends. We meander about the store, not wanting to pick up items to look at them and certainly not ask for help. At the same time, there is a sense of brotherhood and mutual understanding.
