I think it depends. I bought you the router & the work bench because I knew how much you want to make that table. It was important to you, so while the actual gift may not have been traditionally romantic (but, saying that, I don't put much stock in many traditions anyway), the thought behind it was.

I would not be impressed if you bought me a steam iron because I hate ironing, but if you bought me...say...a Kitchen-Aid stand mixer because you'd seen me drooling over one in Debenhams, that would be impressive. And if it was because I'd mentioned it off-hand & not because you wanted me to bake more cakes, it would even be romantic. It's all about the intent. :P

My point... if I had one... was that it is acceptable "traditionally" to give a guy a power tool as a present, but not to give a gal a domestic tool...

I know *we* are weird... ;)
