Gifts I like / Reverb 16

All right, I’m back with a Reverb question today! I’ve never liked writing about gifts but eh, here goes.

White Elephant: What are the gifts you’re looking forward to giving, or hoping to receive?

Well, I’m not going to write about what I’m giving people, because they might stumble across this blog! Let’s just say that I’ve crafted a few handknit things for people… Instead, I’ll focus on what I’d want to receive. Why not?

The biggest gift I’d want to receive would be a new apartment. I’m not the biggest fan of where I live right now and man, it’s hard going back to not having a washer and dryer in my unit. I’d also like a place with central air because it wasn’t fun spending the summer in an apartment that got up to 90 degrees. My dream apartment would also be within walking distance to restaurants and bars AND have off street parking, but I know that’s pretty unattainable here at a reasonable price. I can dream, though.

More realistically, I’m not one for fancy gifts. Give me chocolate or tea or beer and I’ll be happy. Take me out to dinner, for delicious adult beverages, for anything consumable. Eating food while spending time with loved ones is my favorite gift.

I like giving the gift of experiences to people, too. I’d rather go out and do things with people instead of buying them things. In the future, I’d love to give gifts like that. Now that I’m living near my family again, this is much more achievable.
