    My literal Christmas list this year, which I came up with eventually after people insisted on getting me something:

    1. New strap for my bass guitar. The old one keeps falling off while I'm wearing it. Preferably the thicker kind, because the thinner kind isn't strong enough to support the weight of the guitar, and it hurts your back more. Also, no flashy designs, I don't need flames drawn on it.

    2. One of Keirsey's books. Typology stuff.

    3. An HBO mini-series. I don't know if it's been put on DVD, and I haven't looked for the price, so basically I told them to use their judgment in regards to price.

    4. If they need to get me another gift, two Metallica CDs that I can live just fine without. I kind of like them.



    Around a few years ago, I started realizing I had most of the material stuff I wanted. (No, I'm not rich. Lucky to have nice parents, though.) When my parents asked me what I wanted, I said, "Nothing, I'm fine with what I have." It sounds nice, but I mainly meant it in a serious way.

    I don't know how this could help you out, as it seems really dependent on personal taste. The trivial presents, that is. The much more important gift is you spending time with him.

    That's the tricky part about getting him that one thing he's always wanted, that he's been talking about. He might have already bought it himself, or planned to buy it.

    At this stage of my life, I'd be thrilled with clothing or gift cards (the whole transition into professional/adult world has been quite costly).

    Recently, I've been asking for houseware stuff so that when I do finally graduate from school, have a real paycheck and my own place I can live reasonably comfortably and not like a 19-year old in a dorm room -- stuff like drinking glasses, school supplies, basic cookware, a tool kit, a new battery for my car, etc. All are terribly lame presents, but like the other ISTJs have already said, if it's practical and useful, I will love it.

    I know most people wait to get most of their housewares at their wedding, but based on the other thread, Lord knows when that'll happen.

    But if you wanna know what I really want...an adventure/vacation to any continent besides Antarctica would be lovely.

    I hate to break it to everyone, but Santa doesn't really exist.

    Well dang, and here I thought that it was just a great coincidence that Santa and my mom both shared the same illegible handwriting.

    When I was in high school I started buying these things. It kept my antsy wants for moving out at bay, and I felt better prepared. I don't like waiting on other people to make things happen. It really helped out a lot when I did get my apartment a couple years later. Tools would have been entirely useful.

    Nothing intensely. A few things a little bit.
