Every man loves getting tools as a gift. When our girl gives us a new jig saw or socket wrench, we practically lose our minds. How thoughtful, we say.
And despite the fact that Hollywood and the media will tell you that buying her a new set of pots and pans, or a new Dyson vacuum, or a pink feather duster is misogynist, the truth is that girls love to receive tools as gifts, too.
You see, girls have plenty of chores to do around the house just like you have plenty of chores to do outside – you change the oil in the car, she has to vacuum. You mow the lawn, she has to do laundry. You blow the leaves, she has to do the dishes.
And for both of you, when you’re doing those chores, you want the best possible tools for the job. When you have them, doing chores isn’t “ugh, I have to do chores,” it’s “alright! I get to play with my new tools!”
Don’t ever let society, Hollywood, the media, or politicians tell you she doesn’t deserve the best tools as a gift. Everyone has to do chores and the best tools will make her chores much more enjoyable.
Some may say it’s sexist, but if she’s honest about it, giving her tools as a gift is thoughtful, kind, and – as long as you make sure exactly what brand and model of tool she wants – help make her chores a pleasure to do.
Don’t buy society’s bullshit. Give her tools to play with.
