I'm starting this thread because yet another friend (NT) told me it's hard for her to choose gifts for me. She said when my birthday comes up, her mind goes blank, so this time she asked me what I'd like. Well, what's wrong with that?
I've taken to dropping hints or even just outright telling my husband (NT) what I'd like for occasions and this works well.
What's so strange is that I usually give gifts that are appropriate and appreciated by folks - I seem to have a knack. It's not that they're just being kind or polite, I can tell it's the right gift. I do this in various ways: I know their hobbies and interests; this information stays in my head when I'm out shopping, not necessarily for them; I'm not afraid to ask others and/or them what they'd like. My NF daughter also can do this easily.
So I'm wondering - do you have the knack for gift-giving? And do others tell you it's easy or hard to buy gifts for you?
I should add I'm always appreciative for any gifts received.
