Man's Thanksgiving Wish: Turkey, Football and Shopping?

RomeoShops.com Grants Wishes -- for Mall-Fearing Men

MINNEAPOLIS, MN -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 21, 2005 -- Shopping is rarely a man's number-one priority, especially on the BIG day when Thanksgiving leftovers and football are plentiful. Now, men can power-shop for their wife on the day after Thanksgiving...and still watch every one of those football games. RomeoShops.com, the ultimate personal shopping tool for men who are buying for the women in their lives, finds perfect gifts for her as easy as click, click, click.

Michelle Courtright Bjork of Minneapolis, a 28-year-old entrepreneur who was tired of getting bad gifts from her sweet husband, launched RomeoShops.com in September. "Guys can't shop -- most think they can, but it's just not true," said Bjork. "At RomeoShops.com we are quite serious about making him a hero when she opens his gift." This one-of-a-kind site features unique gift items that are so trend-now she'll wonder how he even knew about it. From books to bracelets, and corkscrews to cashmere, this site suggests personalized gift ideas based on a custom personality quiz. Best of all, RomeoShops.com offers free gift wrapping on all purchased items to create a low-hassle shopping experience.

RomeoShops.com best shopping tips for those men with good intentions:

1.  Don't Dillydally! Online sites like RomeoShops.com offer early shopper
    incentives that make planning ahead worth every penny.
2.  Think About It.  As she comments on items she sees at the mall or new
    products featured in magazines, make discreet notes so you can recall
    the style and type of gifts she's hinted at all year.
3.  Ban Shrink-Wrapped Sets.  From chocolate and coffee sets, to bath salts
    and boxed jewelry, these prepackaged pitfalls are everywhere during the
    holidays.  Boring!
4.  Size Doesn't Matter.  Spoil her with a series of small gifts.  Heavy
    aluminum paperweights and inspirational quotes, small scented candles,
    and comfy throws are fun gifts to build excitement
    pre-Christmas/Hanukkah.
5.  Stuff Her Stocking!  Women are usually busy filling the family's
    stockings with goodies.  Make sure she has a few tiny treasures for
    Christmas morning too.  Consider everything from bookmarks to cashmere
    socks to OPI nail polish.
