Now a lot of women wrote into say I was indeed being sexist with my shopping tips and that I should offer advice for those seeking out the best gifts for men.
I think they're right and I think my advice here is valid. So ladies, these tips are for you. Call them the first annual Cavuto Shopping Tips for Women, Shopping for Men:
Tip. No. 1: Don't buy scarves. We hate scarves. We wear them because you buy them. Don't buy them.
Tip No. 2: Don't buy cologne. Don't get me wrong. A lot of women have a great nose for these scents, but invariably, I end up with the stuff that has me smelling like Elton John (search) at a fashion show. Don't go there.
Tip No. 3: Don't just walk by that Wisconsin cheese vendor. You might think some of the stuff is tacky, but a lot of us guys do not. In fact, if we had it our way, we'd live quite nicely on those little sausages and cheese. All the better when you pair them up with a Foreman Grill! Man, "that's" heaven!
Tip No. 4: Electronics. We like toys, ladies — big, expensive toys. Plasma screens are nice — just don't let us know how much they cost. Digital cameras, DVD recorders: all that stuff, great stuff.
Tip No. 5: Exercise equipment. We never intend to ever use it — ever. But damn it, we're entitled to it. Don't disappoint us. And when getting a treadmill, try to get one that has a foldout tray, where you can put a drink and a hoagie as we're allegedly walking or jogging.
I can't speak for all males, of course, but take it from this food-loving, hoagie-hugging, cologne-hating anchor, you follow this list, ladies, and your significant other will follow you anywhere!
