    You are a chick after my own heart, Jewelsy! I am also a woman who hates to shop. I shop online too. Most stores have websites nowadays, so you can use your gc's there.

    That used to be one way to lure a man into my web -- tell him I didn't like to shop .

    I'm going to have to go with Dagwood on this one and say- a new to me car that doesn't need constant repairs.

    I would also like to be able to spend all the money I want on Christmas presents without having to worry about being broke in January.

    And I would love it if my family could get together for one night and celebrate Christmas without bickering and arguing with one another. I'm really, really tired of being the peacemaker in the family, and if they don't striaghten up, I'm done with all of their crap. (Nah, then I'd be just like them.) SO, I'll just continue to put on the fake smile.

    I like gift certificates but I'm really cheap and I dont like to spend them. I got $90 in Hot Topic gift cards for my birthday and I haven't spent anything yet.

    I know what you mean, glennajo - sometimes the holidays are 100% stress. You could always shame them into behaving by passing out Christmas carol books and making everyone sing together. In my experience the cornier & sappier you get, even the toughest nut will back down for a while. I mean, as long as you got the fake smile going, why not?

    It's worked pretty well for the past two years, but I'm not sure they are going to fall for it again. But I promise I'm gonna try my hardest!

    Hmmmmm, I actually haven't ''lured' anyone in quite some time, however those were the days

    If anything, now I seem to attract lovers of "Damsels in Distress"

    I have a second wish to add: I wish for my two year old to always remember pants does not equal diaper.

    I get stressed every year trying to think what I want when people ask what they should get. I wish there would be no need to buy so many presents, small handmade gifts would be great, I love to get presents that someone put a little time and love into.
    ps. This is just my opinion in the matter.
