This is a comment by Tamen on the post “Marriage Equality: Making it Their Special Day“.
After looking at the gift table at the weddings I’ve attended and realizing that there was nothing for him (with the exception of any amateur cooks). No things for the car, for the maintenance of the house/property and so on. So in the last wedding I attended we got the couple a high pressure washer and in the next wedding I attend I plan to get them a chainsaw.
If nothing else it’ll make a nice contrast against all the china on the gift table and if they live in a apartment downtown with a 2 foot yucca palm as the tallest tree they have they can always use it as a beer bottle opener.
