Please don't give me ________ for Christmas

Framed pictures of your kids. I'm not Granny, I'm just an aunt, your kids are OK, but I am not hanging pictures of them in my house, I don't have room and if you give me framed (cheaply framed) photos every year, they go right in the trash.

Jewelry. Ever notice I don't wear jewelry any more? I don't work, I don't dress up. I wear nice studs in my ears to keep them open, but that's it. (Wish I could get my SO to notice this)

Re-gifts. Seriously?? Who the fuck gives someone a full bottle of Peppermint Schnapps?? Ever see me drink schnapps?? Or a little bookbag thing with the name of some company I never heard of on it??

Call me Scrooge, but if you want to give me an Xmas present, please pay attention to who I am? I have liked 1 present in the past 3 years, which was a card letting me know someone had made a donation in my name to one of my charities.

Bah Humbug
