It's Just What I Wanted (or not?)

Do you prefer telling people what gifts you want to receive or being surprised?

I think a lot of people go through this dilemma. Many people believe that it's "the thought that counts." But what about being "thoughtful?" I don't see anything wrong with giving people stuff that they want and I'm sure that recipients are also grateful that they can show true enjoyment about the item(s) they're receiving.

All of us have been through that awkward moment when we open a present and (literally) don't know what to say. The gifts are typically weird, strange, or just plain random. I'm not sure about others, but I prefer receiving gifts that I will enjoy and/or find useful. I'm not a fan of things that will be clutter or put into a box in the closet. And I think that most people like giving gifts that the other person will like.

To answer both questions, I think that a wishlist can solve gift-giving problems. This way someone can give a gift that they know the other person will like, but it will still be a surprise as to what the item is.
