We recently came across a wedding gift that stopped us in our tracks. No, it wasn’t a new house, but a gift basket of cleaning products that struck us as overly domestic and borderline offensive. While most of us want to be “the best wife we can be,” that doesn’t mean we want to be barefoot in the kitchen.
Somewhere between good old June Cleaver and the spoiled Real Housewives, there’s the rest of us. We know how to wield a Swiffer, and preheat an oven to 375, and that’s good enough for now. So, gift givers, behold: domestic-themed gifts that are sweet, not sexist.
