Meet me at the movies!

I don't know about you, but I find that gifting the male members of my family particularly difficult. Also, unlike women, they don't hint at what they might like...

Also ich finde die männlichen Mitglieder meiner Familie besonders schwer zu beschenken, ihr auch? Anders als Frauen geben sie ja (meistens) keine Hinweise...

I finally found something that the hubby might enjoy, seeing as he's the biggest movie buff ever!! What's better than enjoying fresh buttered popcorn while watching the latest blu-ray movie on his 3D flatscreen in the mancave? That's what I thought anyway, plus I really liked the nostalgic look of this gadget, and since it's red, it fits right into our kitchen colour scheme :-D

Dann habe ich endlich etwas passendes für meinen Mann (leidenschaftlicher Cineast) entdeckt - diese witzige nostalgische Popcornmaschine. Was gibt's besseres als frisches Popcorn und die neueste Blu-ray DVD? Fast wie im Kino! Zudem passt die Maschine gut in unsere Küche :-D


Red seemed to be the recurring theme this holiday ~ even Sammy got something red! It's a snackball. The purpose of this ball, which is filled with my cat's favourite snacks, is activity for indoor cats.

Die Farbe Rot fand sich auch in Sammy's Weihnachtsgeschenk wider ~ ein Snackball. Da unser Kater träge ist hoffen wir, dass dieser Ball ihn zu etwas mehr Bewegung animiert.

Take care!
Bis bald!

  7. Liebe Duni,
    die Maschine ist toll! Das wär auch was für meinen Sohn. Der hat sich zu Weihnachten eine Granitamaschine gewünscht. Ich habe auch eine ganz tolle Retro-Maschine in den USA gefunden, aber das wär zu teuer mit Versand geworden und ausserdem haben die ja ein anderes Stromnetz....
    Mit Deiner Krankheit, das tut mir leid! Worunter immer du auch leidest, ich wünsche Dir, dass du gesund wirst!!!

    Liebe Grüße

  9. GREAT idea for a gift! Those guys are always hard to buy for, aren't they?

    I need a snack ball for Hobbes. It got cold this morning and he is depressed that it is toooo cold to go outside. He needs something to do to work off his energy, poor guy. Let me know if Sammy likes that thing.

  13. What a perfect gift for your man! I love making popcorn and always use an air popper (although mine is not as cute at this)! Sammy looks satisfied with his gift too!

  17. I agree Duni. It's really hard to give presents to the members of the male populace. They don't give an idea of what they want and their range of interest is so undefined. :) But as for the popcorn maker, I love it. It's nostalgic and so cute.

  20. That is such a cute gift Duni. I actually have a Nostalgia Ice Shaver. They have such cute vintage inspired designs.

  21. Looks like you hit on a great idea. I think I have too. If I visit you regularly, maybe I can at last learn some German. (I have been trying.)

  30. Love the popcorn maker. And I agree that it's much harder to find gifts for men; they always say, "I don't need anything." Also, cute kitty! :)
