I have asked my entire family to not get anything for me. I have all I need and I pray that they follow my wishes.

I'm fine with nothing at all, but I usually will get some car/jeep parts or tools from family/friends who know me well.

I'm easy to please.

I remember on the Porsche I had put on a staggered set of Bridgestone Potenzas. Got home hand torqued the wheels and re pressurized once cooled down. Went for a drive and parked the car in the garage. Next morning a brand new front tire is flat, and has a f*cking screw in it.

I don't want anything but I have no idea what to get the gf. she's really into antiques but her house is full to the rafters with them. her house and two cars are paid for. she has jewelry and clothes up the ying yang. i'm thinking maybe a spa weekend for both of us, her suv needs tires but thats kind of like buying your wife a dishwasher for xmas.

Spa weekend is good. Acts of kindness/love are more meaningful than things.

My parents always ask me what I want so I just tell them to donate money to the shelter where I got my dog. They still get me stuff. My wife will probably get me gift cards to detailing supply companies or something. Im buying myself some concrete so I can build my carport/washbay.

I agree with CTinline-six on this, or maybe a trip - a nice weekend getaway somewhere?

Yeah, I like this question. Also though, could everyone list their addresses and what time they are usually away from the house during the day?

Honestly...honestly, I've been contemplating buying her a new dishwasher for next Christmas. I know she hates our current one, so I honestly think she'd actually like it? cmyx6go - what do you think as a woman? If you really, really hated your current dishwasher (she only complains about it at least once a week) - would you think its a good gift, or I'm a dead man?

The problem of course with doing so is that I'd then be changing the colour of the dishwasher, which would of course, naturally, without question, require the changing of all the other appliances as well....sigh.

I loathe the whole "gift fever" associated with Christmas. I don't need more stuff. I already buy too much stuff, without any outside help. Amazon and FedEx and UPS probably have conference rooms named after me, for fuck's sake.

And I don't want to puzzle through figuring out what someone else might wish to receive. I don't feel comfortable presuming to know what they need. Nor do I wish to force them to figure out what to do with some useless (at least to them) object which was my failed attempt to come up with a useful gift.

I insist that in lieu of receiving gifts, I'm happy to have donations made in my name to a person or cause that has a mission I support.

I prefer to give experiences as gifts. Trips or airline gift vouchers, spa visits, massages, music lessons, concert tickets, etc. Nothing the recipient will have to move the next time they dust.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news in this joyous season, but buying additional appliances is not going to be the biggest downside of buying your wife a dishwasher for Christmas.

I already bought her two car organizers for the backseat of her SUV for this season (though I'll give it to her for her birthday in a few weeks instead of Christmas), so this would not be till the Christmas after this one. Plenty of time to think through my actions....wish me well, yes?
