Well for me I would like to have somthing I need and be surprised by it.
I dont think its necessary(sp?) to have something I want unless its also somthing I need witch is never. ^^
When you receive a gift, would you rather be:
a) Get a gift that you need?
b) Get a gift that you want?
c) Be surprised, but it could end up being a gift that you do not need or want.
Rarely do you receive a gift that is both a and b, unless you told the person in advance what you want.
'Cause you give me something / That makes me scared, alright / This could be nothing / But I'm willing to give it a try / Please give me something
'Cause someday I might call you from my heart
i mostly get a and c every christmas cause that's what my friends and family do
I normally receive cash so i can buy what i need and want. It's actually much more practical when you get right down to it.
Why hello there!
I'd rather receive a gift that I want, not need. The essentials, I'll always provide for myself, and if not, then my parents will (because if I need something, then it's a good excuse to buy it). The things I want, on the other hand, do not give me a good reason to buy it for myself, so I'd much rather someone else got it for me - otherwise, I'd keep thinking to myself, "gosh what a waste of money". An element of surprise is always good, but not necessary. I mean, if I'm getting what I want, why would I complain? xD
my gifts are always (c) its always how its been...........

I would rather want to get a present i want i dont get gifts that much and the ones i do get i want to have i dont mind as much if i get half and half in my presents that would give me what i need and what i want you know.
Well for me it depends what going on at the time.
If nothing is going on then I'm happy with b (then I don't have to feel guilty about spending my own money on things I don't really need xD). But if I'm trying to save for something then A is really appreciated! These things are usually from my close family, I think you could say I'm an effective at giving hints LOL
I always get C.. >__> got relatives that live ages away from me and we hardly see each other and they always send gifts. So always a surprise, not always what I want or need, but appreciated none the less!
