    Why would I want to give?
    Because it tastes feels good?

    Giving. So much more than receiving, receiving is nice and all, free stuff, thoughtful presents, but I'm not sure there is anything on this world that makes me happier than giving a gift to someone I love and seeing them open it. I seriously love presents.

    Giving! (Especially to my boyfriend ).
    I try to put a lot of effort in to choosing presents and I enjoy seeing the recipient's face when they see what they've got! .

    Well both really. Idk...I mean, sometimes you don't know how to react when opening a present if you don't really like it, you don't want to actually show you don't like it, but you don't want to react too over the top and suspicious.

    But giving can be just as bad, as sometimes I get really stuck when buying someone a present, like they either have everything, or there seems to be nothing out there that I would think they'd like.

    However this year for me family, I think I've pretty much got it spot on if I say so myself Nah, but seriously, me sister is only 10 and I bought her lots of toy cars/aeroplanes, cos she mentions she really likes them, but me mam (and santa for that matter) have never even given her any gift of the sort.

    Me dad he loves his t-shirts, so I got him one of his favourite band, and my mam I got some sugar mice (her all-time favourite sweets) and a £10 Next voucher, because she never buys anything for herself, and Next is like her favourite shop. I have a feeling me mam will say ''How dare you spend that money on me!'' and make me take it back...I'll tell her I've thrown out the receit and I don't want to spend a tenner at next (well I would but I won't tell her that :P)

    I, like some of the other posters, thought this was about something else.

    Receiving.

    Yeah, I'm selfish. Fact is though no one I know really needs any more crap.

    I don't like getting stuff either. I only like receiving because I get money, but my family can't just all give each other money, that would be farcical...
