Get her the perfect gift...

I recommend reading the entire product site.

Maybe you will not succeed the first time, but remember: practice makes perfect.

Pretty cool gizmo, although the sharp top edges invite the lawsuites. By the way, is it "one size fits all"?

Someone is going to make a million dollars with P-Mate. Wow.

I'm just warning my husband, who might, as a moderator here, stumble on this post, that if I were to receive one of these as, say, a birthday or anniversary gift, he'll be in Really Serious Trouble.

There are only TWO acceptable gift categories for the geek girl:

1) Serious techno gadgets (he's still, um, *benifitting* from my extreme gratitude for the iPod he gave me six months ago...)

2) Lingerie

Cooking utensils, domestic applicances of any kind, or anything that is simply something HE wants for himself (exception for lingerie, of course), is out of the question.

As a temporary hold-over until you get the REAL present... a fat Amazon or iTunes Gift Certificate will work.

Umm, Kathy, i know you are like the head girl geek (at least around here), but i beg to differ. my wife, who is a pretty big geek, LOVES cooking utensils as gifts (in addition to being a geek, she's a former French chef - meaning she cooked french food, not that she herself is, or ever was, french).

Personally, i think there is only one acceptable gift category - anything and everything on her Amazon wish list.

I have to agree with Kathy. I'm just glad that

1) I don't have a birthday coming up, and
2) Even if I did, my hubbie would never stumble across this website!

Lingerie anytime!!!

I searched 'gift wife' and saw this.

Thanks! Ill go get her one now!

But I might go with Kathy's suggestion on lingerie.

Does giving a lingerie suggest anything, or you girls just like them?

My wife says that there is one other category that is acceptable. They come in small packages and are very expensive.
This includes jewelry, diamonds, pearls. etc.
