My friends will sometimes ask what I want for Christmas.  I always have a hard time answering them.  The material things I would like to have are items that I cannot afford. Since all of my friends are in a similar socioeconomic position as myself, I get uncomfortable talking about presents.  There are a few things I know I don't want though.

We've all gotten gifts that we really have no use for.  Picture frames, candles or a movie that the giver assumes you'll enjoy, but it misses the mark completely.

As you watch the advertisements and do your shopping, I'm sure you've seen gifts ideas that made you think, "Please don't buy me that."  Tell us which gifts they were.
