If I've learned anything in seven years of marriage, it's that fellas aren't good at hints.
Bearhands doesn't have much opportunity to get to the shops and as such I've been on the receiving end of many random, last minute gifts. Remember the time I got a bobcat for my birthday? Good times!
Last couple of years I've told Bearhands to save himself the trip, I buy my own gift and I get something I actually want.
If you haven't thrown in the tea towel and started buying your own gifts, here's a few gift ides for cooks you might like to email to your better half.

This afternoon it became evident that all this research has been in vein; Bearhands told me that the deck on the mower has had the richard. "You've always wanted a mower for Christmas, right?"
