Gifts for an old man?

It is my birthday soon and my wife asked for a list of suggestions for presents to give me. I generally love making a list of things I'd love to receive, I always have plenty of ideas. But this year, something irked me among the suggestions I gave her. Among other things, I asked for a new wallet, as my current one is about ten years old, if not more, and falling apart, and for a fancy traditional shaving kit, with an old fashioned razor and so on. And tonight I started wondering: are these gifts you would give an old man? I suddenly felt very old asking for them anyway. And it is not even something a man from my generation would ask for.

a new wallet isn't an old man request! everyone loves a new wallet. and a good shaving kit is always welcome! if you feel old now, wait until you are 65! how the hell did this happen to me? my birthday is next week!

Oh gawd, you didn't ask for a cardigan too, did you?
