My friends and family know me well enough to never give me a gift related to cleaning. A year's worth of visits from Merry Maids would be appreciated though. Woman HappyHeart

Today it's a TSV pair of flashlights, so the parade of practical continues. And they have sold a bazillion. Other than my demographic, I am not their target audience.

I did get these as a gift about 2 years ago, just do not buy me more things to dust. I do use them a lot.

There are some gifts that you shouldn't give unless they are requested! This would be one of them, along with vacuums and some others!

On last week's AM STYLE host Leah Williams announced that the show was AM STYLE'S BIG GIFT SHOW since AM STYLE would not be seen until after Christmas due to special programming and what was one of the items presented....a Breezie bra!!!!  

 

There's a funny commercial for Fruit Of The Loom underwear that says.....there are some people where underwear is an appropriate gift and for some it is not.....and when the bra was presented it made me think of that commercial---LOL!!!

If you are talking about the 2 sets for $24 & change.  2 dusters; one long handle, one short and dust cloths.  I bought one for myself and the other I will give to my best friend if she wants it but I am not wrapping up as a gift.  I think I would be offended if I received as a gift.  :catvery-happy:
