Fox News Cracks Me Up

So are you clueless about what your special Gal wants for Xmas? Don't know what gift to get for your sister or female friend? Foxnews has your back!

As the unofficial first lady of the Playboy Mansion, Hugh Hefner's main squeeze Holly Madison knows a thing or two about women.

And as finding the right holiday gift for the lady in your life is about as daunting as it gets, FOXNews.com turned to the "Girls Next Door" star for some female advice.

“One of the best ways of figuring out the perfect gift is to pay attention to their personality," Madison told us. Your gift should only send the message ‘I love you.’ It shouldn’t say ‘I’m trying to change you."

There is no better expert on gift buying than the first lady of the Playboy Mansion, don't ya know? My favorite part is when they suggest what every woman wants!

Madison, who had the task of shopping for two special women this year (she made sure to spend the exact same amount on Hef's two other live-in girlfriends, Kendra Wilkinson and Bridget Marquadt) suggests sending out feelers to get a sense of what she really wants, and also tapping into your memory bank to recall hints she might have dropped.

But keep in mind that not everything on her yearlong drool list is appropriate for a holiday gift.

“Anything utilitarian is not romantic and gifts should be romantic. You don’t buy someone a gym membership,” Madison said. "I recommend getting jewelry even if you are just in a casual relationship. You don’t have to spend a lot of money. You can buy silver.

And Hefner, the modern-day Casanova himself, agrees that shiny baubles are the way to go. Last year, Hef bought his gals diamond-faced Jacob and Company bunny watches that gave new meaning to the term Jingle Bell "Rock."

I myself don't like to go with jewelry, because I never know what a person's taste is. Anyway, this news piece is just funny funny funny... I will close this post with a quote about what not to get your Grandmother...

Grandma: Chances are your grandmother doesn’t need anything too extravagant, especially since most of her valuables have been preserved under plastic for half a century.
