    So true. Give me cash, and forget about the gift card.

    And you're complaining about that? I don't see anything wrong with that.

    It's not "wrong" per se. It's just when I know certain people talk about me and judge me and/or really don't care how I'm doing most of the year, I don't take their gifts at Christmas seriously, because they're doing it out of obligation, not because they care about me.

    A person who cares about me and to whom Christmas is also important is different, I would accept the gift in a different spirit, even if to me Christmas doesn't mean much because I know what it means to them.

    I just don't like the hypocrisy and then I have to sit there and smile and act grateful and appreciative of the same people above and what they gave me.

    Exactly.

    If you like me, show it when it's not obligated.

    My ISTJ likes video games, gadgets(the newest ones), and food. Oh, and very nice shoes and clothes. A gift card that would help get any of the above would suffice as well.
    There is a thinking stuff from which all things are made, and which, in its original state, permeates, penetrates, and fills the interspaces of the universe.

    Ah I see, I don't look that much into it. I'm just happy I get a gift, haha.

    Get 'em stuff they need! Doesn't matter if it's boring or not (if they're like me). One of my favorite gifts last year was a hot pot! 'cause I needed one So if you ever hear them complaining about, say, their toaster, which doesn't work...
