    Default text about What People like to get as Presents

    People often receive unwanted gifts for their birthday. The truth is many people wants either money or a simple present such as flowers or a kiss not things they already have. I know about this subject because an experience made me realize of what people want.

    Last Monday was my Aunt's birthday. We had a party and the critical moment was the one in which we had to give her the presents. I had bought a bag for him but, unfortunately, she did not like it. Perhaps because she has three or four bags and does not need anymore. I realized these kinds of gifts are not wanted.

    Money is probably the best gift that can be given. I usually ask for money for my birthdays because I often save money to buy expensive things such as a camera which hardly is bought for birthday. I am planning to buy my own television for my bedroom that is an example of why I like receiving money as a gift.

    The last option is simple presents such as flowers or a kiss. You might say people do not like them because those things do not have any value but I can assure sometimes people around you prefer simple presents instead of material expensive things. Have you ever kissed your girlfriend after you have not seen her for a long time? It is a wonderful moment and cannot be compared with a watch, for example.

    My conclusion is that sometimes it is better to give someone a hug, a kiss or a simple present instead of expensive stuff which could not be useful
