Poll #1948158 Presents

When it comes to my Christmas presents, generally speaking I prefer

money or gift cards
an actual present that someone took the time to think about (even if it's not what I wanted)

I am difficult to buy for. That is fact.
Over the years I have given an enormous amount of Christmas gifts to charity.
Several charities which have thrift shops are delighted to have them.
And yes, I could have used the money.
But, I love the glitter of presents under the tree. I love opening them.
Most of all, I am deeply touched by the time and thought people take for me. That is the real gift.

I can really enjoy and appreciate both. the only exception to mind is my ex-MIL because she was pretty darn bad about picking out things.

I'd like a third option - I'd be grateful for either! I do love opening presents even if it's not something I could enjoy, but I love a good excuse to treat myself with money or a gift card when I otherwise wouldn't have. :)

Getting something I don't want or didn't ask for SUCKS; I'd rather get a monetary gift than something useless to me. Those things generally go straight to Goodwill or eBay. That said, I do very much appreciate that someone took the time to think about what I might like, however misguided they were. Besides, one more thing I don't want is one more thing not filling up my house.

what I PREFER is a gift from someone who took time to think about it. What I generally get is something they put no thought into, therefore, in I generally prefer cash or a gift card.
