A wish list because everytime someone says "Oh I don't care get me whatever!" And then when they open their gift there is slight disappointment in their eyes

Many of the people I know, when they give out wish lists (not on DA necessarily but in general) come up with stuff that either I have no way of paying for (way too expensive) or I don't know how to get very easily, which sounds really crappy on my part, but when I have to find, buy, or create gifts for everyone for Christmas, I don't really have much energy to go through a long process. Vague lists are great, because I know I have a chance of getting them something they'll like, but I don't like super specific lists either.

(I also hate really short wishlists with specific things/expensive things because HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO GET YOU ONE OF THOSE THREE THINGS DANGIT.)

I like vague themes (or one or two ideas), because I personally like to be surprised when I get gifts, so I try to do the same when giving gifts.
