Don't buy me these things

 ~ the gift of reading ~
I don't know who this list is for since I don't really get presents during the holidays as I don't celebrate Christmas but I like the idea of giving/receiving gifts. Also, I think people should let others know what they don't like especially since money is going to be spent.

Definitely... NO :

01/ coffee related things – I really don't like the scent of coffee. I never got used to the smell or the taste so no coffee for me

02/ wine/alcohol  – I never drank in my life unless you count cooking alcohol & I never have any interest in drinking either

03/ anything that requires me to sign up for membership – I am sick of having to sign up for everything but that doesn't mean I wouldn't if something is really good such as a free lifetime supplies of new books, I wouldn't refuse that...

04/ lavender or anything that smells like lavender – I once received a sack bag that you place under your pillow that is suppose to be soothing and it made me nauseous and I had to throw it away. Actually, I'm not sure if it was lavender but it was purple and looked like lavender. I guess anything with a strong scent or odor would put me off.

05/ anything that has a kind of personalized engraving of sorts – I do not like having things with my name on them

Most Likely... YES :

06/ paper goods – blank notebooks, sketch/drawing books, stationarys, bookmarks, postcards...

07/ art & craft kits – any diy (do it yourself) such as this snowman diy kit or this autumn leaves embroidery kit or this dreamcatcher kit

08/ gift certificates – to book stores, clothes stores, digital movies & music such as Apple, or for something useful like a desk clock or perhaps something cute like a desk clock shaped like a bunny? the possibilities are endless.

09/ patience – okay, so patience is not something you can buy but it is something you can give, right?

10/ books, books, books – fiction yes. horror, zombies, vampires - no, no, no!

What's on your yes and no list?
