Presents
"I've gotten the same gift from the same person three years in a row. Yeah, it was a sports jersey of my favorite team, but I don't need it in triplicate." - Jerry

Hammer

Man with shaving cream
"I don't like it when women buy me skin-care products, because I don't always like the smell. If she wants to go that route, she should take me shopping at the mall." - Robbie

Massage

White t-shirt
"White undershirts. Sure, I use them, but they don't inspire passion. I like it better when my girl just asks me what I need. Men know what they want." - Dan

Ceramic deer
"I hate to get really tacky, random stuff. Once I got a dog made of Spanish porcelain. It was something that I would never put in my house, even though it was expensive." - Felipe

Ties
"A tie that's really not my style. You would think if someone saw you in a tie every day they would know your sensibilities. My biggest gift pet peeve is when the present doesn't show any thought." - Kevin
