If I would have answered that question two years ago I would have said NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Because I did not cook that much and I did not even consider wearing an apron. I would have said "Thank you to the person who gave it to me and put it in a closet and never looked at it again. Well life has changed for me. I am now disabled and have time to cook. I also am cooking only for my husband and I. Our children have flown the coop ya ya ya. I now have the energy and time to spend on making nice dishes (that is when I am not dizzy) and I find myself wearing that dreaded apron that was hidden in the closet, and loving it. I now have two aprons in my kitchen that I rotate. One has chickens on it. Yes how silly and one is just red. I wear them until they are dirty and then they go in the wash and we start with the clean one. If someone wants to give me an apron for a gift I will gladly accept it. I will take it for any gift. I do not want it for a bridal gift because that would mean I would be getting married again. I have been married now for 30 years and want to continue to stay that way. I will even let him give me an apron for a b-day. That would be a nice gift compaired to some gifts he has given me troughtout our marriage. One year he gave me a jogging suit too big. He said it was so I could "GROW" in to it. I was already 50lbs over weight. Two years ago he had a stroke and has not been able to think far enough in advance to buy me a gift. So the jogging suit does not sound that bad now.

I was given a wonderful apron for Christmas from my husband, its denim with a big pocket and says 'I have more interesting things to do than housework' across the front. It always makes me smile when I put it on to do something messy.

I guess the answer really depends on who you are buying it for! I have one apron at the moment. My sister gave it to me as a birthday gift a few years ago, and I love it. It's from Williams-Sonoma and it's pink, with pockets in the front and a bib. The ties are long enough to wrap around my waist and tuck in a dishtowel. I love it and wear it almost every day! But I'm in the kitchen all the time, and I am very accident prone, so it was thoughtful of her to give it to me. Now I don't end up wearing what I was cooking, lol. But if I didn't cook and someone gave me one as a stand-alone give, I would think it was really weird. Maybe if it was accompanying a cook-book or some nice kitchen ware, then it would make sense and seem more thoughtful.

Wow, what a tacky gift? I suppose a pair of mittens will be the next present. Tsk tsk, The person must be really cheap. You can get them for a dollar sometimes.
