    Something practical like a gift card to a place I shop at. Either that or something to add to whatever I'm collecting at the time.

    I don't know. It depends a lot on the person, I think. Here's something to help: Probably the most common complaint I have with bad gifts is "I'm never going to use this."

    If you like to give your presents a personal touch, that's fine. I can appreciate that. Getting too mushy would be going overboard, but it could still be sentimental or something.

    You can't spell "justice" without ISTJ.

    What do I want from Santa? His blessing in my request for Mrs. Clause to give me a lap dance...

    Really, an iPhone and I think I'm getting it.

    A date with a college aged ISFJ. I originally wanted a thesaurus, but I just went and bought one myself.

    But, seriously, I despise the whole gift giving process. The fact that you're getting me a gift for Christmas just means the purchase was provoked by the holiday, thus the meaning behind it is trivial. It'd be different if I were in a relationship, and I were lusting for someone, then all rules would be thrown out the window. If I really wanted something, I'd just get it myself. Though, part of me likes the gift giving process because it's an incredibly efficient way of showing you what the other person thinks of you and your relationship with them along with giving you a glimpse into how they think.

    I'm done ranting. I get random gifts for people. That's scored me more brownie points for a certain someone than a Christmas gift would.

    Ehh. Gah. I guess a gift card to a place I shop at a lot. Maybe an Amazon gift card? Don't waste time trying to pick out a non-sentimental item, because I don't want to have to deal with telling you that it sucks. My sister bought me a box of cologne with 3 small bottles of various colognes last year. I told her I couldn't stand 2 of them, and the other was too small of a bottle to be worth the money likely spent on the gift. So, she returned it and I got a bigger bottle of a different brand of cologne.

    ^ If you're broke all the time, like me, It helps to have a set timeframe for gifts. It makes balancing my budget uber easy.

    I just look at my budget, say, "I don't have money." and go back to what I was doing.
