I don't mean the thought itself. If you think of getting someone something and don't the thought is worthless. It should be it's the gift that counts. Anyway, I always appreciate any gifts I get even if it's something that I don't need, want or won't use. Earlier this month for my Birthday I got a pair of winter gloves. I have a pair of gloves that are in good shape, I have a pair from 2 winters ago as a gift and now this is my second back up. So do you appreciate the effort of a gift or do you resent it when you dislike or don't need an item?
