Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

Something practical, something I can use/play with/build, etc. Not a big fan of getting (or giving) decorative gifts. Sometimes it takes a while to find the right gift for someone because I refuse to settle for a gift card or a statue that will just sit there.

Something I can spend... probably at woot.com after the tax goons are done with me. :-P

Please do not increment my Quality Posts count. 69 is a good place to be. ;-)

Something functional to make my life easier. I could wish for a new car to replace the one starting to fall apart...but it doesn't have to be so extravagent. An ereader since I read over 100 books a year, a step-stool so I can actually reach the top shelf in the cupboards, a decent ice scraper for winter, a good Aloe Vera gel for sunburns in summer. Things like that.

Totally agree... Most gifts are things I might buy for myself anyway. But a gift that's an "Experience" can be worth so much more.

I actually don't like gifts. At this time in my life, I can afford to get myself anything that I need, so I already have it. (I'd rather give than receive.)

For years, books and CDs were tops on my wish list. CDs are essentially obsolete, and while there are some books that I still want a hard-copy, they are the minority. "eGifting" those things just isn't the same. Quite frankly I have become a lot harder to buy for.
