I'm a real bookworm and I love getting books but I hate getting general books that are s*** - The Football Lovers' Encyclopedia, Cakes!, Britain By Road... you know, the sort of catch-all, aimed at nobody in particular, and therefore as bland as owt, Christmas market guff that the likes of M&S churn out. The sort of gift that says 'we know you like to read but here's something to show that we dont care enough to find out what sort of thing you like to read'.

 

And just general toiletries. I know what I like and its taken me the best part of five decades to get to the point where I know what works for me. Don't waste your money on any old shoite.

Clothes - where did it say in the wedding vows that I can no longer pick my own clothes?

 

Tally with that, although not married I think the only thing I've worn out of tens of clothing gifts was a scarf. Doesn't matter if it's a girlfriend, mother, fashionista sibling or whomever, always wrong. Have in desperation brought clothing for others, got away with it once I think. Vouchers work.

What it actually says is "We got to the counter and realised we hadn't got you enough/anything, here's this thing."
