Happy Haulidays

Christmas Wish List
Two Front Teeth – Too lispy.
Hula Hoop – Not so hip.
Hippopotamus – Shipping and handling alone would sink you.

And have you seen how prices have exploded for a partridge in a pear tree? With just 12 days left until Christmas finding a gift for your true love, or actually any man on your list, has you on the point of panic. (hmmm… Point Panic on DVD?)

We’ve got you covered with our list of great gift ideas for guys, including the cost of getting it here by Christmas.
