Cosindering what my family gets me, I like cash better. XD I usually get stuff I don't care about and would much rather prefer anime and manga. Which I spend almost all of my money on. -w-

To be honest, I really just like receiving the gift. Doesn't matter to me what it is. ^_^

I usually would appreciate any kind of gift. But I really like it when they put more effort into it than cash. Getting cash is like someone saying, "Hey, I don't know you well enough to get you a thoughtful gift." I've gotten books I've never read, and games/movies that I've already had a copy of, but I still found those gifts to be more enjoyable than cash. I guess, its actually just having something physical. Whenever I see the gifts, they remind me of the one who gave them to me, where as cash is so fleeting. But then again, every dollar helps now a days, so not going to be picky.

I prefer cash. Cash is practical. With cash nobody has to stress themselves over what gift will be best and this and that. With cash, you can choose what you want to get. But that's just me.

i feel like cash is the best cause the basically said "look i want you to have the best thing you can think of for yourself...sadly i dont know what it is so here 300$ ENJOY!"

that way there isnt any sort of awkward moment when you get something that you dont like and the person can see it in your face that you dont like it,but you try to play up the "oh no i like it" face yet its so transparent its basically non existent...

This happened to me twice. On Christmas AND my birthday, and they are only a few weeks apart. Apparently my parents don't understand what kind of music I like, or that just because my nails are long, doesn't mean I like to paint them. My mom ended up giving the presents to my younger sister. OTL

Physical gifts preferred... May it be big or small, cheap or expensive, "Meh" to "... That is what I needed! :glomp:", it is the fact that another person put time aside in this rushed world just makes it all the better. :)

Of course, if they are seriously out of ideas, well... Yes, I'll take cash.

As a kid, I really really really believed that getting a physical gift was super important and that cash was really impersonal (but I still took it). Now that I'm almost in college, I'm always asking my parents to send me cash presents.

I find that a personal gift is much better then cash because it means more and is less pointless. Giving cash to someone as a present is kind of pointless because that person (presumably) will just give the same amount of cash back to you for a gift. But I'd be happy if i got any gift at all :P

For me getting cash is perfect because you buy your gift so you are sure that you will be happy with it.
Plus it's an easy gift ;)

O.O Only 1% hates getting cash?!
I find getting cash very impersonal and it doesn't really feel like a present to me. Buy me something cheap or even draw me something small and I'll treasure it forever, but money is so dead and nothing special.
The personal aspect aside, having cash leads to being expected to go shopping and shopping is :iconthehorrorsplz:

Most people never know what I really want, so getting cash is better so I can get it myself. Doesn't feel the same as the surprise of getting a great gift, but It's ok with me :shrug:

I prefer cash, because I honestly don't have anything I really /need/ or even want around the times where gift giving happens... I'd rather have the flat cash so I can save it for when I actually have something I want. Like the gaming headset I just bought out of the blue last week.

I prefer cash over material gifts, just because most of the things I get lately are either for cosplay purposes or for computer purposes, both of which are hard to get and/or specify what I want. Especially computer stuff, 'cause I prefer money to get exactly what I need for my precious little laptop. :3

Also my family seems to think that I break fans faster than glass, so I would end up with enough fans to open a business if they all got me material gifts.

If anyone wants to give me any kind of gift it should be 1. Manga (or any anime related item) 2. Cheddar Chips 3. Money. I'm happy to get gifts but those three are really the only things I care for xD

I know they mean well, cause who doesn't need money? But for me it feels kind of impersonal. Like "oh hey I didn't really think of what you might want so here's money to get it yourself." I like the thought that goes into the present more than the present itself. Plus, a physical gift you can keep and will always remind you of who gave it to you :meow:

I think it's better, that way the receiver can go and buy what they want instead of maybe getting something they didn't want (For example, I got a toy for a three year old for Christmas...)

I prefer physical gifts. But often I wish for something that's hard to get or for something "sciency" that nobody knows what it is and where to buy it. In that case, I receive money to buy it myself. Either way works for me :)

I like receiving gifts, but most of the time I just get money.

I don't exactly make it easy for my friends and family to buy something for me, though. There usually aren't any specific things I want! In fact, the last things I actively asked for were Skyrim for my 360 and a Nintendo 3DS.

To date I still haven't gotten past Whiterun yet, and I've barely even used my 3DS anymore after beating the League and discovering that my router is password-protected (With a password that only my dad had, but he forgot it -- Which effectively eliminates the possibility to play online).

Is it a Linksys? If it is, there's a website that can find your password and stuff. I think you put the router's IP in a browser and it comes up.

Otherwise, I don't know.

I don't think it's a Linksys, no. I guess I can always give it a try to look for such a website, though. Thanks!
