Asking, what do you want for Christmas?

Question to my fellow Christmas friends here.

Do any of you ask your children, teens, young adults, adults, grandchildren etc - "What Do You Want For Christmas?"

Afew years ago I came into my inlaws family and was shocked to find they don't ask what eachother wants for Christmas.

At my parents, my family always asked for ideas on what eachother wants for Christmas. Of course SOME things are left up to figure out on your own, a few surprise gifts or something you know the person wants and doesn't know about.

But, my "mother inlaw" always wondered why the family members seemed "slightly unhappy" with gifts they recieved. She doesn't know her own family members very well, nor did they like Christmas much with her until she started asking "What would you like?" and "What are your interests?"

Now that she knows, her gift giving has changed! I know it is the thought that counts, but what happens if the gift "just isn't you?" Re-gift?

What do you do in your home with gifts? Do you "shoot in the dark" when it comes to gifts? Do you also figure out gifts your friends and family might like? Do you ask them? What I do personally, throughout the year, is keep tabs on what each person talks about, things they point out, things they like etc.
