Inexpensive Redneck Gift: A Wall Calendar
Calendars? For Rednecks? I realize you might be a little confused, but let me assure you, rednecks like calendars. And just to be clear, I'm talking about the redneck men on your list.
Most of the redneck men I know have their own "space", whether it is a barn, a garage or a basement. It's a place they hang out with their buddies, drink beer, watch tv (specifically, The Race, NASCAR that is) and do guy things we'd probably rather not think about.
Sometimes, especially during The Race, or when the guys are trying to impress us with their grilling skills, us girls are allowed into their space, and I'm here to tell you, they all have wall calendars.
This is not to say that redneck men go shopping and purchase their own calendars. They don't. Sometimes the calendars are freebies from the local Chevy dealer or their insurance representative. But the guys are quick to replace the freebies when someone gives them a nice calendar, suited to their tastes.
A NASCAR themed calendar is always a safe bet. If you know your redneck's favorite driver, all the better! But if not, stick with one of the many general themes - Tracks of Nascar, Stars of NASCAR and NASCAR Pets are just a few of the possibilities.
Beer themed calendars also make a good choice. Again, if you know their favorite, that's the way to go. Most rednecks won't mind a Vintage Budweiser calendar, and the Beer Games calendar will do if you can't decide on a brand.
You might think the obvious choice would be something from Jeff Foxworthy, and you are probably right that "You Might Be a Redneck If...." will bring a few chuckles. I'm not so sure about "Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader." Select at your own risk.
A word of caution about girlie calendars. Yeah, the guys are gonna like 'em, but the wives won't! Don't do naked girls, or even half-naked pinups. It's just a bad idea. Unless the redneck on your list is absolutely single, and even then, be prepared for the calendar to disappear if he happens to end up in a relationship before the year is out.
An exception might be Gretchen Wilson's Redneck Woman calendar. I think the wives will like that one too.
