I'd rather choose my own gift; I know what I want and need respectively. I don't like surprises of any kind, and find those kinds of surprises are rarely those that uplift you and change your life.
I like to be surprized because it shows if that person really put some thought into the gift.
You are posting this in relationships. and that changes things. in a relationship i would want to be surprised. because what my lover gets me will do two things. if they truly know me then they will get me something that suits me and my personality, in this way saying " i pay attention, and i Love you" this is of my opinion. Hare Krishna
1) I would rather choose.
2) Nobody else knows what appeals to me, what quality of what
thing when I am in fact disappointed.
Just selfish I guess :/
I would prefer to choose my own gift. I think a lot of people would just prefer to get the thing they asked for rather than a surprise that they might not actually like.
Choose my own or get none.
