    As the title says...

    I suppose I've always enjoyed giving the presents more than receiving them. I love seeing peoples faces, especially when I know I've got something that is really special for them.

    Do you prefer giving presents or receiving them?

    I like both but I prefer to give. I LOVE seeing the looks on people's faces and the self satisfaction that I have given them something they really like.

    Also, I don't know why but I loathe people watching me open presents, I feel so embarrassed but I have no idea why? Think it might be that I hate that someone may end up spending more £££ on me than I think they should and I don't know how to react :rofl:

    Definatley giving, I think 100x more about what presents I buy other people that what I want for myself. I love giving people things that they never knew they wanted!! x

    Obviously I like getting presents but nothing compares to see my little girls face on Xmas morning or getting my mum something she really wants xx

    Obviously I love both but there is nothing better than seeing someones face light up when you give them a gift you know they will love x I always get excited on the run up to xmas about giving my gifts out x Last year me & my sister did my mum a huge hamper & I couldnt wait for her to see it x

    Giving - definitely :) I love surprising people with things I know they'll love. I get a lot of satisfaction from giving carefully thought-out presents. I can't wait to see my Harrison's face on Christmas day. I do like receiving gifts too :haha: but I get embarrassed opening them in front of people and never know what to say other than ''aww that's lovely, thanks!''

    I prefer to give the presents, defiantly when its for the kids. Also I hate people watching me open presents, I'm not sure why it just makes me feel really uncomfortable.
