My Cro-Magnon man loves gifts and I’m a pretty bad gift giver. Side note…still not sure why I call my husband that? Because I think any other word like hubby, hubs, honey, dear, is just lame. Fiance was the worst. I’m glad we had a quick engagement because having to say that word always made me cringe. It sounds so uppity and snooty. He’s strong and handsome and Cro-Magnon just sounds cooler.
Anyway, I love giving things, don’t get me wrong, but I am just too practical sometimes. To me a great gift is a tank of gas, an oil change, ammunition, new underwear, or a new toothbrush. Haha. Ok, I’m not THAT bad…all the time.
You can become a member for $20 (one cost for lifetime membership) and that entitles you to great discounts, dividends (which is like cash-back), and access to REI garage sales where you can gear for about 80-90% off! Maybe I’ll write a post on that later. That’s where I’ve got most of my gear and it’s held up really well.
REI, you’ve got a member for life! Cro-Magnon and I cracked up at the review and you guys were spot on. He’s got that knife on his wishlist.
