“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.“
We're having a "pick-a-name" gift exchange at work, and to make things easier, we all made a "wish list" of what we'd like. Interestingly enough, most people listed what they "don't want" rather than what they'd like! I guess we've all been the recipients of too many useless gifts!
As for me, I don't want anything scented. Perfumes, soaps, bubble bath, lotions, even candles. I am highly allergic to perfumes and have to give all that stuff away. Unfortunately, daycare parents always seem to give exactly those items as teacher gifts.....
PS: You can send all the fruitcake to me (as long as it is no older than let's say 5 years); I love fruitcake.

I am a wine lover, but I don't like getting wine-related gifts. NOw, getting actual wine is great, (as long as it's something I like, but getting whatever new battery operated corkscrew has been dreamed up by the engineers at "Let's Make Things More Complicated Than They Need Be" academy for the completely lazy, is NOT good.
I also detest getting usless things to "decorate" my place. Jeez. If I wanted that stuff, I woulda picked it out myself, trust me.
I hate getting clothes, too.
I love getting jewelry. Of any kind. You can never have too much jewelry. More jewelry, I say.
I wouldn't want a furry animal like a puppy or kitty, or candles or a lot of perfume. The other night our Youth Group went to a lady's home to visit and by the time we left I was sniffling, clogging up. She had 3 cats (one a Persian) and candles everywhere.
While I can tolerate and enjoy most kinds of music--I wouldn't appreciate certain types of rap music.
I also wouldn't want a pink slip (termination) during the Christmas season.
