I totally agree. I've been listenting to NPR's

"Consumed" series on Marketplace, and I already HATE "stuff," haven't been into gift giving or getting for years, and this -- and everything else I've been reading about consumption, carbon footprints, the whole effect of our "Walmart low prices" on life in China, etc. etc. etc. -- I seriously think I won't buy a single gift this year. I used to buy only for my nieces and nephews, but now that I don't even get an email acknowledgement from even their parents that the package even arrived, mmmmm, maybe not.
No one i know really needs anything anyway.
In fact, I just picked off 7 Toys for Tots type tags to buy gifts for needy kids instead of my 7 kid-relatives
