Do not listen to this person. Women KNOW when you've gone to boots n bought the first vaguely 'nice' looking smellies/creams you can buy on a 3 for 2 offer. We can also tell when we got the third 'free' cheapo present after you gave the other 2 to people you like more. Why do you think the boots xmas advert revolves around women organising xmas? You can and you just did. Tibby, what does your mum enjoy doing? She's probably given you a million hints without you even realising, for she is female - a bit of thought goes much further than a bit of expense at xmas.
