I love getting booze, I’m a rum drinker so I love it when friends buy me brands of rum that i have never tried.  Alcohol is also my go to gift, most of my friends will get alcohol for their bday or Xmas, I usually know what my friends like to drink so I buy something that I know will get used. I try to find something nice or in an unusual bottle instead of just grabbing a bottle of Jack Daniels.

Gift cards are also well appreciated I think it would be hard to find a gift card that I couldn’t use.

generic gifts?

– books (preferably from the business section, but worst case i can exchange them at chapters)

– chocolate (good stuff), wine/other alcohol

– soft blankets (i’m obsessed)

– flowers

otherwise, i love THOUGHTFUL gifts. for example, i travel a fair amount and the few times i’ve flown home i’ve bitched about how hard it is to know if i’m under or over when weighing my suitcase, so a friend bought me a gravity scale.

i also love CARDS. forget gifts, write me a note full of thoughts about how awesome i am/how much our friendship means to you/how much you miss me and i’m full of warm fuzzies.

Books or book shop vouchers ๐Ÿ™‚ Bags sometimes. Things I know I need, for example, I am getting a large bookshelf from my parents (or two smaller ones) this year, because I need them, my bookshelves are really overflowing!

I prefer to be given gift cards to the stores I shop. I have very unusal taste and I would like to pick out my own stuff (less returns ).

Gift cards, money, anything that has some thought put into it by people that actually acknowledge our personalities.

I think I have enough bath lotions to last a lifetime… ๐Ÿ™‚ But I’ll always welcome:

– fuzzy socks. I love these, but they stop being so soft so quickly!

– jewelry. I never buy it myself, so…!

– scarves. I have so many, and I can’t justify buying more! But if I RECEIVE them… haha, it’s just enabling my addiction. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Books, magazine subscriptions, accessories (scarves, costume jewelry), nail polish, music (cds), clothing, gift cards..I’m not very picky!

Gift cards and clothes…. I don’t know, I made a Christmas list, but there’s nothing in particular that I get every year that I regularly enjoy, if that makes sense. I think I get different presents every year.

Nice makeup, like something from Sephora and cooking gadgets are probably my favorite.
