Our family trades names for gifting. We write up a wish list, put the list in a hat and draw. I am always very specific - what I would like (color/size/scent whatever), where it's available, and even a model number if available. I will email my Amazon wish list.
If my nephew/niece/daughter/her boyfriend get my name all is good.
But if my sister/brother-in-law/mother get my name? When my brother-in-law drew my name a few years ago, I received two wall calendars. I don't use wall calendars. I realized the freebie one hanging on my fridge was still on July just a few days ago. If my sister draws my name and doesn't want to go to a specialty store, and she won't buy anything online, she'll buy what she thinks is "close enough". And my mom? Bless her heart.
