I have an Amazon Wish list I use mostly to store things I want to get for myself later. Then I notice there's ways you can tell people about your lists and I was curious if anyone does this? Is it okay to do it? Or is it considered a dick move?

I'm doing it this year to make shopping easier for my mom.

My Wish List is pretty massive. Like 8 pages massive. I use it the same way you do and it's basically a to-get list, but when my b-day and x-mas roll around I'll be passing it along to my wife and parents because they always bitch about not knowing what I want or what I already have.

Same as most of the above. I use it as a "to buy" list, but I'll probably kick it around to the folks, my sister, etc...

If there's anything I've learned about wish lists in any form is that no one ever gets you anything you have on it and you're stuck with a new pack of socks or something OR everyone gets you the same item off your list.

Of course. That's what it's for. So grandma buys me something I actually want.

My Dad just said: What do you want me to get you for X-Mas and I said Guitar Hero. He said yes. So no surprise for me this X-Mas.

One year my grandma bought me (I shit you not): An orange safety vest, a pack of post-its shaped like a dog, and a jar of pimento olives.

What's even more strange is that's exactly what's on my Amazon Wish List.

My parents are deceased. My foster parents hate me. My foster sisters (who I adore) are all college students and super poor. My friends are also college students and living in the same poverty hell I am. That said, giving out a wish list would be pointless for me and my crew.

Go score a sugar daddy (not the candy)! There's still plenty of time 'til the holidays!

Then I'll have to put out. I don't want to have to measure each item out in blow jobs. That's a hassle.

I see your point.

On the other hand, can I use you as a point of reference when explaining to my wife what's under the tree on Christmas morning?

My family knows where to get it. They're lazy shoppers.

I use it to remember what I want to get, and makes it easy for my parents come gift giving times.

My family definitely appreciates that I provide them my WIsh List. Not sure they appreciate that it is 9 pages long, but I do use the priority settings.

Because the conversion rate between blow jobs, dollars, british pounds, and back room tug jobs can be murder...

Anything I can do to help...in relation to blow jobs.

I print mine and give it to my wife around Christmas time. She's always appalled at what a geek I am... :sad:

Use a spreadsheet takes most of the work out of it.

My family has been using wish lists years before there was an Amazon. It's a Christmas tradition.

Even though I have an Amazon wish list for the heck of it, it's pretty useless since most of the stuff I want isn't actually available through Amazon.

If they ask, I'll give 'em some ideas. I don't really keep an updated wish list or anything, though. I have a wish list on Amazon, but it's not really current (and I haven't updated it in at least six months, if not more).

I don't just tell people. That's rude. If someone asks if I have one, I tell them.

Taxman "reminded" me about 3 weeks before Christmas that he had a wish list. So I printed it; and it did come in handy at the LCS and at Borders. Then I made one; and he and the kids actually got stuff from it. It was cool.

yup. I have a massive 10 pager with books, comics, DVDs, and toys all on it. Then I have a smaller three page list of my "most important" things to buy that I give out via email a couple times a year (b-day and Xmas) to certain people. I only do it because year after year my secret santa, my parents, and even sometimes my wife never have a clue what to buy me. No matter how many times I'd say nothing they would get upset because I wouldn't give them ideas and instead I'd get gift cards (which are cool too) but it's nice to still not know what to expect but also get something I really want. I'd encourage anyone to do this.

Anyone that asks my wife what to get me, she directs to my list. Worked out great last christmas for me, I got all good stuff. Years past I got some crap gifts.
