Something I'm going to try.

Rate this Entry
This holiday season, I'm telling all of my family and close acquaintances to not buy me gifts, not even a card or anything, and I'm not going to buy anything for them. Naturally people will react by being like "ugh, that's just going to make you more difficult to buy for," but I'm going to reassure them that I absolutely do not want anything, and they will not receive anything from me.

We'll see how it goes.

    Im not really asking for any gifts either. I generally dont even really know what I want for Christmas anymore and dont really have any requests. My family usually buys me some gifts anyway and I like what they do give me. I buy gifts for my family and such always and Im pretty sure I know what Im getting everyone sort of.

    If they're anything like my family, they're still going to get you gifts. And expect some in return.

    An interesting idea. I think a lot of people would just get you stuff anyway, though. To not do so is considered rude in many circles.

    I always tell people "money or something" when they ask me what I want, because I don't really know. When I was a kid I liked the presents, but as I am now, the only thing I really like is hanging out with family like my brother or my cousins (since I don't see them as often).

    They'll refuse giving money, much less nothing at all. They MUST get you this absurdly expensive thing that you neither like nor have any use for, so they can expect your complete gratitude and everything in return OR ELSE you will be the worst ungrateful and selfish person ever.
    At a point I just gave up. If people want to waste all the money in stupid things that waste space, I can't do anything about it. If they want to call me names for not playing along, then so be it.

    Hopefuly I'm wrong and it goes better for you, but...

    You should ask them all for a copy of their favourite book, see how that goes.
