hello, everyone. merry christmas. i'm andrea tant arrow with bob beckel, eric bolling, greg gutfeld and kimberly guilfoyle. this is "the five." we are so happy you could join us tonight. many of you are probably curled up by your fireplace drinking eggnog or exchange gifts with family. and we are going to exchange gifts too. but first we want to talk about some of the worst gifts men and women give each other according to the new york post. let's look at the worst presents that women give to men. okay, clothing like ties. that is always a popular one. what else do we got here?
anything gadgety. i thought guys like gadgets. grilling equipment. sports fan -- a watch, a cheese tasting course, protein powder -- >> who gets a guy that? or a couple mannmanni-pedi. >> have you ever gotten those? >> no. can i just say i'm sitting next to these poinsettia. if it wasn't for christmas nobody would have these. the worst thing i ever gave a woman is hepatitis. >> well -- >> dana, have you ever given any of these gifts. >> certainly. ive course i've given clothing, what else is there to get guys out of this list.
i've never given a couple man manni-pedi. and pajamas aren't on the list but those are popular this year than before. >> and you know what didn't make it on here -- eric, a nose hair trimmer. >> what are you trying to say? well, listen, guys there is no bad gift. if a woman gives you a gift, whether it is a manni, peddy or a nose hair trimmer. >> would you go to the manni peddy? >> i'll go if you go. >> you can say, gosh, it is a wonderful thing you did for me. the manni-peddy, forget about it. >> i thought you like massages. >> i do. but a different kind of place. and who the heck would go to a cheese tasting course. >> i would. >> well that's good. and a watch, if somebody gets you a watch it would be
$30,000ain can't afford it. and then you get stuff nobody uses. anything that looks like a wrench is a gadget and you get mill meters instead of inches. >> one time i gave peter a remote control helicopter thing. >> that was a good gift. >> how long did it last? a day and a half. >> i thif these are good gifts, except for powder. or a cooking class, or a wine tasting class. doesn't that sound fun? >> no. but with grooming you send the message you look like hell. >> they all smack of home improveme improvement. if you give someone saying this will help you, it is insulting. nobody wants to be told they need help at christmas. >> or a nose hair trimmer. >> exactly. the thing is supposed to be fun, a bottle of booze or sporting equipment and never take up much
room because if you hate it, you don't want to have to look at it. whatever is purchased can be fit in a draw so once you look at it, you put it away and never look at it again. >> and i can't tell you the number of times i've gotten sports memorabilia from teams i hate. they get it completely wrong. i like the redskins and they get me cowboy -- >> sand how about the presents men give women. i don't see any problem. a digital pedometer. and a scale. don't get a woman a scale. a toaster oven, a vacuum cleaner. how about no appliances. >> what is wrong with the vacuum cleaner. you ought to be using it more. >> and i gift card, a tool kit. >> i need that. >> every time someone comes to my house and they are like do you a screwdriver -- >> i thought you were asking for
a drink. >> santa-themed lingerie. >> i'm all for that. what is wrong with that. >> my parents once gave my sister and i these little tool boxes and we were so annoyed. what kind of gift is that? and i ended up using that tool box for years. it had everything you needed in it when a guy was not around. >> that is a great story. >> and eric, you have given your wife chocolates and a teddy bear. that is on the list. >> you know like that life-sized ted yid bear -- teddy bear, she put it in the backseat for like three months. don't get a woman a diet book. >> that is a great way to break up. talking about a quiet night for yourself, that is it. >> or break up later. >> and cheap jewelry and if it turns her finger green don't get it. >> it doesn't turn green for about a month.
>> are you betting on dumping here in a month. >> i'm going to sell this stuff out there. but the thing that bothers me here, when they talk about a diet book, that is a problem. but when it says a teddy bear, instead of a teddy bear, how about just a teddy. >> it says that. santa-themed lingerie, is one of the worst gifts. >> i would push back that being on the worst list. >> i would think it would be a wonderful gift. it would be wonderful to find under the tree. >> let's hope that somebody isn't receiving santa-themed lingerie. and up first, secret santa time to eric. >> but before you open it, eric, we have to play this sound from earlier in the year. >> i had three years of pictures and videos, three years of great memories. >> baseball. >> all of my contacts, baseball,
and i never backed it up on a computer and those are gone now forever. so parents, as dana points out, this is a great thing, all of the parents out there, sync the phones and make sure they are on a computer so if you lose it and someone steals your car. >> and your car got stolen. this could help you preserve the memories in the future. >> wow, check this out. i've seen this. this is fantastic. all i have to do is put my iphone on it and sync it. >> and you can print them. >> i like the fact it has a little handle. >> awesome. >> you can take it with you where ever you want to go. >> that is an awesome, awesome gift. thank you. >> it depends on what kind of pictures you want to print from your phone, bob. >> you cannot borrow this. >> don't let him near the photo cube. >> who is up?
>> to dana. >> oh, doug. tell me, is it a dog-themed thing? >> pretty paper. >> oh, look, it will fit me and greg. no, it will fit the dog. i love it. this is so cute. greg, you could really fit in this. >> it looks like a leg warmer for a fat person. i think there is another gift down there. >> is that for your dog? >> yes. it is for the dog. you put the two legs through there and you put it around like this and it is an american flag. see? >> yes. >> thank you. that is weird we had each other. >> freedom looks so cute. >> they could get together and be twins. >> i'm seeing a photo op later. >> and we'll find it because christmas should last all year.
>> are you ready? bob, from secret santa. >> who is my secret santa? >> guess what, it is me. and i thought long and hard about what to get you and i feel pretty good about this. i think you'll be really happy. >> i really will? is it something i can show on television? >> yes. >> it's heavy.

you have another thing there. >> oh, boy. >> the greeg flag. >> oppa. thank you. >> the greek flag is to put around you when you get in the boxing ring with me. and then this here, your very own greek boxing gloves. and you and i have been boxing for seven years -- and it doesn't look like it fits your hand. greg, can you do this? >> at first i thought it said greg. >> i know why it is like that, because you always hit me on the leg. >> i do poke you when it is time -- >> don't drop your flag. this country is in enough trouble as it is. >> okay. >> gregory. >> that looks like a serious present. >> this is like something that you get in a box. how did you know i wanted paper?
i love paper. >> it is beautiful. >> it is beautiful paper. >> oh. >> there you go. >> a t-shirt. you know i'm going to be wearing this. >> what does it say on the front? >> i'm going to wear it tomorrow and surprise him. the back is the best part of that. >> i finished second. >> greg, that is all right. >> greg, the original t-shirt i wanted to get you -- the original t-shirt i wanted to get you was adam levine basically naked. >> i think i have that one. >> i figured. >> two more. santa just delivered two more. okay. dana. >> oh, wow. >> and eric too.

i've seen it. i mean i've seen so much of it. and also that one scene that we saw where he is dating a black woman. i'm tired of the white clumsy guy acting stupid in front of the black family. aren't you tired of that cliche? i would expect more from what's his face. >> will farrel. >> i don't like going to see movies when people don't go out and they go out and talk to themselves and shouting and kids crying. i like to sit at home and cry. my favorite christmas movie of all time is blue velvet, the classic david lynch movie. i'm not sure it is a christmas movie but for me it reminds me of christmas because there is a lot of nitrous oxide. >> and dana, are you planning to see any movies? >> i like to watch at home, so whatever is available on netflix or apple tv, i'll try to catch
