I was just sitting here thinking about what type of gifts to give some people. I am by far wealthy so I am thinking whether I should give practical things or fun things? Maybe a few go out to eat gift cards? or just plain old Walmart gift cards? People think because I cook at home a lot or because I home can I want kitchen stuff, No. I hate getting Christmas gifts that is kitchen stuff. Pots and pans, cookie sheets or baking pans. I already have what I need for the kitchen. So I either have to ask or give a gift card. What do you hate to get for Christmas?

I want dollar tree gift cards. so that is almost always what I get. I don't for people to buy me gifts. You see these mugs in the picture. I paid $20 for them I got about coming. Right here on this site and in person people said that was too much to spend. I put up a sweaterI paid $39 for. That was too much for the sweater. I prefer to buy my own gifts. Now everyone always loves my gifts. I buy what I like and would not mind getting. I have less to live on then most around me But I am not cheap like a lot of people. I was thinking of buying my daughter a $99 pot set. she is learning to cook. I hope she likes it. I hope you get nice gift cards.

Those are cute but I would not ever use them because I have enough as it is in the kitchen cabinets.

Why do you not like receiving them?

@shaggin one reason is that the gift card might be to a store I do not go to.

I'm not choosy. With my history of not getting gifts from anybody, I enjoy what I get. Last year was one of the best years for me for both giving and receiving.

Honestly, I like cash or gift cards. I haven't received any gifts I didn't like recently.

I usually tell everyone not to buy me anything, sure gifts are nice but I do not need anything.

I have cupboards full of unwanted toiletries sets. I know they are expensive, but most of the things in them I never use. I much prefer getting vouchers, preferably ones I can spend at the garden centre in the spring and summer. I usually buy gift cards for others, then they can get what they want.

My sister and parents buy what they find on clearance for gifts instead of asking me what my kids and I would like. I hate getting size L clothes when I wear an XL. We usually donate most of what they give us unfortunately. I give them money so they can buy what they need or want.

I agree. The unwanted gifts I get I put into a tub in the closet and I recycle them, when someone has a birthday or for next Christmas.

I think it's ridiculously that anyone would think a woman wants cooking or cleaning materials for Christmas. I hope you get a lot of gift cards this year, so you can get what you want.

I know I've had gifts I'd have rather not received but I can't think what they were - I've just remembered. I don't like being given plants very much because they always die on me.

@andriaperry Chocolates and I like gift cards too. I get a lot of pleasure just trying to decide how I'll spend the money. A book or maybe tickets to a show. But I don't really like too much being spent on me.

Since I do not celebrate Christmas I will tell you some of the things I like to get from others. I like to get earrings. I love earrings. If someone wants to have a pillow made for me that would be nice. Most other things I buy myself because I am not sure what brand to get.

Well once someone bought me a deep fryer and they knew I was on a diet, so they wasted money because I never used it and it sat in the shed, still there.

every Christmas it gets harder and harder to know what I want. when I was young I wanted everything. now that I'm older I find I really want nothing as I can buy what I want when I want it. I don't want clothes I prefer to buy them myself. except Chicago Cubs shirts. That's what I get every year for years now from my sons. Maybe before I die they will come up with something different lol,.

@andriaperry - I realized eventually that it wasn't anything I would pick for myself, rather, what someone else thinks you would look "nice" in.
