As you can see, I recently wrote a wishlist which can be seen here.
However, I was recently talking to a friend about this, and we both agreed that it’s quite hard to list things we want and even harder for people to use as a guide. We then started speaking about things we did not like receiving as gifts (since it was her birthday recently and mine is next week). And hence, something special was born ..
→ The Anti-Wishlist ←
Which is pretty much a list of things that you would not like to receive.
And after thinking about this further, I think this list is probably far more important than the normal wishlist. Why? Well, I think you would rather receive something not on your wish list this than receive that one thing you just hate receiving.
1. Plushies - I guess this was pretty easy to guess considering the above photo
I have way too many and I really do not have any more space for any more at all!
2. Food - Not that it is necessarily a bad thing …
However, I like to keep everything I receive for memory sakes. And I can’t very well do that if I’ve eaten it all haha!
3. Money – Unless this is from an elder ..or as a wedding gift
I’m not really sure if many people feel the same way? But I find that giving a friend (who is about the same age as you) money is a bit …unthoughtful? And it kind of seems like you didn’t put much effort in to it.
4. Clothes - Actually I really do like receiving this but I have my reasons..
Unless you’re my mum or personally shopping with me, I don’t think most people know what type of styles I like, what looks good on me or what my size is even. The outcome can be quite disastrous and awkward for me.
5. Vouchers/Gift Cards - of anything you can think of ..
I’ve received a few of these in the past and I’ve kind of disliked everyone. (Especially cinema tickets..) Mainly, when I receive one of these, I now must buy something from the store. Which involves me choosing out my own gift and …everyone who knows me should know I love surprises. Hence, it kind of ruins the experience for me.
However, to be clear, if anyone gave me one of the above items – I won’t be annoyed.
In fact, I’m pretty appreciative of anything I receive from anyone. Considering, it’s not something I’m forcing anyone to do except my brother ..and the bf wahaha. But with that being said, these gifts just won’t be something I’d be particularly overjoyed about receiving. (but really, I legit have no more room for any more plushies… ;A; )
What’s on your Anti-Wishlist?
Also my love for taking photos =/= me wanting to receive a billion photo albums + frames (I seem to get this a lot..)
