Holiday Gifts for Pipe Smokers
 Is it the thought that counts?

Even though Halloween is still weeks away, retailers already have Christmas trees, wreaths and other festive decorations on full display hoping to get us all thinking about the Holiday Season early. Really early. Being a woman, this is an easy task for their marketing masterminds. The mere mention of shopping, a large sign that screams "SALE" or perhaps a 10% off flyer in the mailbox gets me drooling like Pavlov's dogs. And even though I resent the fact that retailers are pushing Christmas before I can get the pumpkins and mums on the porch, I wave my white flag in defeat.

Of course, the first person on my list is my husband. He can be difficult to buy for, so I often try to find something unique or unusual and more often than not, it has something to do with pipe smoking. So in my search for the perfect holiday gift I've found this...

Pipe Fire

The PureFlame Stainless Steel Pipe Mobile Fire Piece! Stunning, isn't it? For a mere $233.33 (including free shipping!) I can mark the first and most difficult holiday gift off my list. But, like any good wife I'm going to check in with a few of his friends and colleagues before I take the plunge.

Adam: "We're not going to sell these, are we?"
Ted: "It's pretty but who needs an open flame running in the living room, like, ever?"
Eric: "You do know that a lot of Pavlov's dogs died just in preparing them for his experiments, right?"
Alyson: "I do know that, Eric. What I don't know is how that has anything to do with the gift I am asking you to comment on."
Eric: "Who am I to stop anyone from being lured by low, low prices and putting a stainless steel container of flaming grain alcohol in the middle of their living room?"
Alyson: "Urgh."

Re: Holiday Gifts for Pipe Smokers
As the particular husband in question, while I think it lovely, might I gently suggest that the odds of us having a flaming cat running madly through the house might be a bit higher than normal with such a contraption in the living room. Besides, $233.33 would buy a whole lot of Mac Baren Navy Flake...

Re: Holiday Gifts for Pipe Smokers
A whole stock of pipe tobacco tins would be in order. Or a new pipe. I have 5 furballs and a dog. Curiosity did what to the cat? Good luck with it. $233 and change is not an attractive price. It would look good in a mansion.
