I have given scarves (both the "winter weather" kind and the more decorative kind) to women before with positive results.

And knives.  That doesn't leap to mind as a gift, I know, but IIRC a guy on "a long forgotten forum" once wanted to give his prospective father in law a Leatherman tool and, as that has a knife attachment, of course Babushka had to cast some anti-stabbing-yourself-accidentally-with-it spell on it first.  :nod:

I gave a one of a kind custom knife made by a very well known knife designer/maker to my FIL. He uses it all the time at the family 'dacha' and there were no 'spells' involved during or after he got it.....I think you need to get out of the 'village' for abit "BB" :-X :king: :ROFL:

Do please enlighten this topic to me. Is a watch a "bad" gift? Why? Since when?  :reading:

Since I got told obviously. Before I would have bought one.

The reasoning behind it is you run out of time when the watch stops and the relationship ends.
