Something I can tell the person who gave it to me thought it through. Like they say it's the THOUGHT that counts.

Preferably of the automotive variety; fun, sporty, and occasionally loud is a decent combination.

Count me with the practical gift lovers, but tiny luxuries are great too--a little bottle of expensive liqueur, or a few pieces of the best chocolate.

Something I can use, whatever its use is supposed to be: clothing (to wear) bluray (to watch) CD (to listen to or play frisbee with), food (to eat).

You name it, I like to receive it, as long as I can use it.

I love to receive.

That's what Christmas is all about. Receive, receive, receive.

God gave his only son - which means we received Him. Keep the true spirit of Christmas alive by receiving as much as you can.

It's your holy duty.

Allow me to expand on the "something I can use" theme ($ is ok, but I would like at least some thought put into gifts)...
Please give me something on my wish list, please! There are many things there for every budget (since I have no rich friends, there are no cars or expensive jewelry listed), but for some reason my pals keep ignoring my wish lists & sometimes spend hours roaming malls looking for something they can guess is appropriate. These days I keep wish lists more as reminders for myself than what they were originally designed for.

It's the reason some people prefer money. When I was heading south I created several lists, anything from moving & household stuff to pet supplies. Told everyone about them! I still got calls or once in a while a housewarming gift of stuff they thought I may need. Nobody guessed right.

I appreciate every gift, I do, but when money is tight ignoring a wish list can easily become a wasted opportunity for everyone concerned. My lists are long enough that anything will be a surprise or at least they can get a clue about what I like,need or may already have (if installment #4 is on the list, trust I already own 1-3).

Hey Mods -
If that post isn't worth a Dreidel, nothing is!

When rich or powerful people propose a change, it is designed to make them richer or more powerful.

Favourite gift is something I can't afford to get myself, e.g. trip or car. A large cheque will also do nicely.
