There are few life hacks more essential than placating a lady during her time of the month. One wrong move can see the love of your life instantly transformed into a wailing Deadite nightmare capable of eviscerating a man’s soul in seconds. (I speak from experience.) Thankfully, a new online store has sprung into existence — possibly from the lifeblood of doddering husbands — to help soothe this savage beast.
Time Of The Month (TOTM) is an Australian-owned online store that sells a range of gifts aimed exclusively at women suffering from PMS and related ailments. No, really.
In the words of the website: “TOTM’s aim is to offer funny, tasteful gifts that are great value and can bring a smile to any woman’s face. So rather than hiding behind the sofa when it’s her time of the month, you can make her smile with a thoughtful, funny, perfectly timed present.”
Gifts range from novelty cards to luxurious pamper packs, with prices starting at $2.99 (plus a $12 flat delivery fee). Once you’ve selected a gift, the website will send out a card informing your loved one that a surprise is on the way.
Naturally, gauging the delivery to coincide with her cycle is going to be the tricky part — if she’s expecting a gift and it doesn’t show up on time, you’ll probably be worse off than if you hadn’t bothered at all.
We’re curious to know what our female readers think about this. Would a PMS gift make you feel special and act as a soothing menstrual balm? Or would you find the whole thing a bit weird and creepy?
