What do YOU want for your gift?

OK, whether you'd ask your spouse, your significant other, your parents, your kids, or yourself, what do you hope to receive this holiday season?

My list (not in order)...
New Car radio
New computer
Blu-ray player
50mm/1.8 Nikon AF-S lens

If I could, I'd ask for some Amazon gift cards, but that's not the way my family (at least the ones I live with) works. They don't like being told what to give. Personally, I'd rather give someone what they want and eliminate the guesswork.

I'm boring. I like to receive restaurant gift cards. I have everything I want or need. I love to go out to eat.

These are the three thing I have asked for the last 25 years. Atleast I get the last one every year

My son to be healed from his rare genetic disorder.

All children in the world to not go to bed hungry.

For all my kids over for Xmas.

Well Sam... obviously we are the only ones who get the true meaning of Christmas

(Kidding)

It does make me feel a little materialistic though.

I figured there'd be replies like that. I'm hoping we'll get some more materialistic folks around.

Things I have put out the hint for to family in no particular order:

TiVo Roamio Plus
new flannel sheets
Janet Evanovich's #20.
George Foreman grill
diamonds(never hurts to ask )
more baking pans
Sephora gift cards, barnes and noble gift card
new rubber spatulas, new measuring spoons/cups
travel tea mug with infuser

I could probably list 10 other things. The ONE thing I'd like I won't get but that's okay. He sends good "guilt" gifts
