You know I have to say -- I've also listened women talk about how big guy plans the proposal night and you seem really obvious I don't think geyser I think. I think men want credit so badly they don't like to keep that a secret they want they want the credit more than they want to surprise I. I think it's the fear of doing something wrong. I really do I think in their minds they wanna do something romantic I think they wanna do something sexy. And because they wanted to be a momentous occasion. I sometimes just don't have. Film know about -- let's call it to put it altogether or maybe they're not naturally romantic but it took them what would be romantic to a woman might not be. That's right that you know. Might not the top of evict him you know that that's romantic I don't in the bowl game bright girl added. Right right cold pizza Brad -- Well this time of year people are trying to come up with some. Great -- obviously things to come under the tree jewelry is always a winner. -- It's too obvious because it's a small package for the most part. So I suggest. We take you take it. And you take that small box in rapid into a big a box and then put that box into another guy or let them vote yes and so at least this some drama that end up. Okay oh my goodness that's how my dad does all gets out White House at least some major puzzle. Of figuring it out. But don't let. The little tiny jewelry box that's exciting for a woman because she thinks she knows that's got to be jury when they're told you told me last time we did to show that it. That was the exciting -- and you saw that little. Back from the certain jeweler in your hometown right -- yeah that's true. So you're saying you take a little ring boxing but in and bigger bucks and a bigger bikes and a -- -- right then there's a surprise close at least some kind of sort. -- you buy some clothing article and you put it in the pocket. Well that's clever idea. -- yes I did a thing that my kids once com. Where we. We did clues. So there was there are all these clues again in the first clone and sent him to the second Clinton -- all throughout the house and on the last clue. With an ornament on the tree that they had -- and it was up. An ornament there was a dog bowl because we -- getting a month up on -- power that's. Do you it was I think they'll never forget that and that's. Yeah yeah very creative still hottest gifts for Christmas this year -- as well right now diamond -- some real big this year. But what's what is really big is on college it's gemstones. People now are trying to match clothing and with colors and and there's a lot of good designers out there and and -- Richard Covert Austin America's diamond at the -- walked -- he has that. Unbelievable what our idea I venture to say is the nicest. Colored gemstone collection anywhere in the city. And you're talking ruby and sapphire and -- let me topaz and calm all kinds of courts and MFS and whom this this this just. It's analyst with the with them. But if there had tuned in to the colors and they even that they even have a whole series of -- over the if that's the cause of the UT and they can even do. What's the name of the of the school and -- AM with a purple. The fact that the deficit I forgot that her words it Marino and Botswana tomorrow and I am confident they have that also -- great. And down so that would be a good idea for a guy he's not really ready to give her a diamond. But he wants to get her jewelry is it safe to get a -- -- does it it's not as a serious of a commitment well no but if you if you marry than charity has. It dime in the hearings charity has an engagement ring so you wanted to go to something. That's functional. That's important I think people. You know sometimes guys tend to get something that's too dressy because it's too flashy and she can't Wear it -- and I. Yeah exactly exactly. We got an email question about diamonds by the yard. What's that oh that's very cool. What a lot of times what happens is people have a lot of -- jewelry that don't Wear any longer it's a slain in the jewelry box and and there are diamonds -- -- around so you needed down the story either got to riches in new turnaround new.

That she'd be jury indictment but except that the. Miles and miles and it pretty good at it -- I'm about buying jewelry online. I personally not because. I'm involved in reach you know what they called brick and mortar. But I. I think it's you can't see you can't touch it you can't feel it.

This Christmas shop Austin America -- diamond in the armor lock -- -- can break her. The dining out on top thirteen seventy -- that's true guide. Doesn't matter how much time they have they seemed to be shot -- at the last minute that's a big difference between the way women shop around the holidays a lot of women start buying throughout the year and -- the closet where they put big gifts you know they can start in the summer and other differences this time a year between men and women you see in majority business. Well men do wait to last minute. That's only because they're they're really frightened they gonna buy the wrong thing and who know me and once that's a big rejection women one. When a person of buys a gift for someone and they go. I don't like it well what about when they return it does that even worse. What that that's even more towards the okay. Like don't say I don't like that but did you notice the differences and what a man has to do is become a little bit of -- detective. And he seems to fail to realize that he's got to look at what she's wearing. Look through her jewelry box and see what kind of jewelry she has maybe she has a pro. A -- to propose what she doesn't have -- hearings. But you know maybe she's -- you know you see that she is a lot of certain colors so you'd wanna generous and gemstones that goes with the -- it. Seem to compliment to her. Just to feel little -- gonna watch those signals those subtle signals that women. You know they fold over the catalog on the Nordstrom's catalog of the Jewish store catalog they fold over the page. With that that there interest -- what about your at a party with your wife and she goes oh my gosh that necklace that. Jill is wearing is gorgeous that would be a clue that would vehicle and remove most men wouldn't see that yeah they don't pay -- that's right. Well it you know that of that. Maurice is that men do multitask. Okay. What they were under the impression that men can't multitask but if that statement that never thinking about sex. Once all the time all the time and that means they are multitasking. Because they're thinking about sex and then whatever else they do affect. Very -- clients. I just I know in the past I've wanted to have returned things. You know clothes jewelry whatever because. You know a lot of times demand for small they might have bad taste to begin went on their own. And -- involved they didn't pay attention to what you liked and didn't like and to me it's so insulting to get something. That isn't your taste. If if it -- that you have to Hindu. -- that was kid gloves is who I think the woman has still not necessarily go. I hate. OK but. You know Ralph it's just isn't my taste I can appreciate. What should did. But this is not something I would weir and I would not wanna. Put in the jewelry box and not Wear it so your advice to women is to be honest if they opened the box and they you don't really like -- Yes I think this I think it's important but in a nice way. You're -- as a compliment first thank you you know. I really appreciate which it did it. It's pretty is it is it's not my taste them. You know that so we'll have to mice away well and you guys wanna take it so personally so what session doesn't like and you know well yeah they don't catch ending world. But also if you're not sure don't have any work done on the peace because once you've done work on the peace. They won't take about most stores will not ticket back. So that's something to consider but just you know -- have trip girlfriends past from. Other -- that's part of the problem men don't like to ask for help they don't like to ask for directions they don't like to ask they wanna think they know and done. Well I think the rule of thumb is a man has to say to himself. My joy. Is going to be biting her something that she would love. Not that I would love that she would love. In that I'm gonna see the biggest smile on her face when she opens it and that's gonna be my reward. Great we'll be right back.
