Not a collector. Not a "thing" person. HATE to shop. Despise knicknacks of almost every sort.
But hey, here's a hint for the gift-buying universe that these are things that I would actually be extremely happy to get:
Gift cards to Walmart, Target, KMart, PayLess, Lands' End, Giant, Food Lion, Wawa, Staples or Sheetz. Honest, I swear, a piece of plastic that gives me free toilet paper and socks for the boys when they need them is a fabu gift.
Writer's Market 2006--or whatever year is most current.
Stuff I need for work and school, like lined paper, post-it notes, #2 pencils, steno notebooks and those big pink erasers.
A roll of postage stamps.
Photo splits--those 2-sided tape things for scrapbooking.
Strongly scented candles.
And my all-time favorite, having someone pay for the carpet shampooer dudes to come by.
