I just caught the end of a Best Buy commercial which seemed to be telling young husbands that a great gift for the wife would be a computer. Has anyone else seen this?
Most commercials about buying gifts for women during the holiday season lean toward diamonds and jewelry and clothing – typical female stereotypes. The idea that a woman would welcome a computer for a gift is something I wasn’t expecting to see in a commercial.
What I didn’t have a chance to see was how the commercial portrayed the man giving a woman a computer, and whether that involved any gender stereotypes. If I see it again, I’ll add something in the comments here.
