Guys, I know picking out a Christmas gift for your lady (if she hasn’t told you exactly, specifically what she wants) is no easy feat. There are so many options out there. And if you’re bad at this whole buying presents thing, you may find yourself completely overwhelmed and defeated and susceptible to making really bad purchases. Sometimes the best way to narrow things down is to start by identifying the gifts that you shouldn’t buy her. We can help with that. Click though for a guide to holiday presents that will not get you laid.

Disclaimer: I have very little interest in Valentine’s Day. I’ll admit, the idea of it is nice, and the Valentine’s cup from Starbucks is maybe the cutest thing ever, but my appreciation for the “holiday” ends right about there. I never even really think about it, and when the day rolls around, I’m none the wiser. However, this year I’m beginning to rethink my position, only because there are so many lovely love-y things that I want, and wouldn’t Valentine’s Day be the perfect time for me to receive them? Wink wink, nudge nudge, and all that; boyfriend, ye be warned! I’ve put together this handy guide of essentially foolproof gifts that I think (almost) any woman would love to receive. Whoever you’re buying for, you know your girl better than I do, so exercise judgment when deciding on presents (for example, if she has arsonphobia, candles may not be the best choice). Read on!
It’s fun to receive a gift you ask for, but, in my opinion, it’s more fun to receive a gift you didn’t ask for, and be astounded by how well chosen it was. My friend Nick gifted me the soundtrack to the 1979 film “The Main Event” on vinyl. For those of you who missed this gem, it’s a “glove story” starring Barbara Streisand and Ryan O’ Neal. Yes, there is boxing involved and Babs wears those little shorts where her butt hangs out the bottom. But the important thing to note is that the soundtrack is Barbara’s foray into disco music. Yessss! And, my friends, there is a track called “I’d Clean A Fish For You.” If that’s not “glove,” than I don’t know what is. I have never met anyone I would clean a fish for. No gift could have made me giddier and I didn’t even know I wanted it. Tell us about the best gift you received this holiday season in the comments.
… but he’s wearing a Santa hat, so it’s festive!

Fact: I practically make a second career out of being a lazy homebody, so this gift guide could maybe be scene as the gifts I’d like for Christmas this year to endorse my lifestyle. Because even when a homebody is lazin’ around at home, we still are busy doing stuff. How do you think I managed to watch the entire first season of “Homeland” in one weekend? Being a couch potato is hard work. Here are gifts for the lazy homebody in your life…
