Things that show you really put some thought into the gift not bought something as an afterthought or necessity is important to me (Aries).

A friend of mine delights me with the gifts she buys me. She knows I like tropical themes in my home and she bought me a beautiful crystal imbedded fish key hanger. Deer, hunting or country themes would make me puke if I received them as a gift. She also has bought me cute gag gifts based on other things she knows about me (a bottle of cold duck and a duck 'massager' because I raise ducks and can be fanatical about them). My all-time favorites are the ones the kids made for me (lopsided vases, dragon statutue missing a wing, decorated handmade card). The type of gift is irrelevant; it could be anything from a gun to an exotic cookbook and I'd enjoy it as long as the person knew enough about my preferences to select the right style.

Ever gotten beer making equipment for a gift? LOL I did!

I didn't mind, though. I looked at it as a new challenge and a way to save money <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

Just remember, you can reciprocate in kind by giving work gloves, rakes, etc as gifts .... <img src="/images/graemlins/devil.gif" alt="" />

My very favorite gifts are those given to me by children, especially if they are handmade.

I'm Pisces and like getting cd's of good music, and also books. Love perfumes and soaps too. Anything that smells nice!

I'm an Aquarius and I like recieving all sorts of gifts! Especially if they're handmade or from a forien country. Jewellery is also always nice to get given, though I only ever wear silver and I collect rings. Flowers are always nice to get, especially if they're for no particular reason or just because I told the person I was feeling down or having a bad day. Books and CDs are nice to get too, but only if the person knows me very well, I'm quite picky about what I read and listen to.

I don't like novelty/joke gifts, I think they're tacky. I also don't like recieving cosmetics, make-up, bath smellies etc. I'm a Vegan so unless they're 100% animal product/testing free I wont use them.
