Finally- someone speaks the truth! It's not greed- it's reason. If they don't know what you like, they should just save their money and just not get anything! That'd be better for them- extra money!
Or, if they know what you like and proceed to get you something you don't enjoy, they wasted money they could have spent on something you do enjoy. Thus- still not your fault.
Personally, I'm not for surprises, either. Get me something I need or want, or don't get me anything because it just causes undue stress.

I didn't really get anything for Christmas this year -w- I don't really mind, either. It's just another day.

It's just another day. my presents were small this year, haha. my dad kept telling me "i'm sorry it's not a whole lot! you'll get more next year", but everything he got me i really wanted, so it's not like i mind. and plus, what i didn't get in presents he made up with a ton of candy, so it's all good. ;p
Haha... ^^;; Well... I actually just have a lot more on my mind than just 'presents'. Sure, they're nice... but... I kind of enjoy giving more than I do getting. Though after what's happened this year, I'm just more or less 'blah' to all the holidays =\
