Don’t you dare!

Here’s a vintage Christmas advertisement for Hoover. If anyone ever considers a vacuum cleaner an appropriate Christmas present for me they’ll be in big trouble!

It’s astonishing (or, sadly, not astonishing enough) how many vintage Christmas ads are all about: Buy your housewife things to clean with! Make your own life better by telling her housework is the best fun she’ll ever have!

However, if you take a look at today’s Mother’s Day and Christmas advertisements (for women) there’re a lot of ads for cleaning devices and the like. Maybe it’s just the wording that has changed in the marketing of presents “for women”!
