Any other autistic people hate gifts?

Idk what it is, but I hate being surprised with gifts. You have to act grateful for getting things you don’t want that will clutter everything up. And it’s usually either wrong brand of things you want or just straight up not.

A really thoughtful small gift from one person at a time can be good, but birthdays/holidays feel like so much.

I don’t want to sound ungrateful, but I’d way rather watch a movie or eat take out then get a thousand random trinkets that don’t mean anything.

Does anyone else feel this way?

    I mean, I like being surprised with things like that, but you got a point. I have had that happen at birthdays. I'm glad it doesn't happen anymore. I'll be 21 next week, which means I feel like I am too old to receive a lot of presents. Besides, I don't want that many things anymore anyway. And what I do want I actually don't use much anyway. As much as it hurts me, I don't care about getting gifts anymore.

    Yeah I feel similar. I turn 20 on Thursday and I am so glad not to be getting many gifts but I’ve gotten some and ugh. I didn’t mind as much when i was a kid bc anything I didn’t want became much parents problem, but now I have to deal with it all and none of its is a part of the plan. Lol.

    That's why I just tell friends and family to get me gift cards to stores near me because then I can just go to the store and get the stuff I actually want or need witch is very helpful for me

      Usually places that I know Will have things I like like I live a 20 minute walk from a Walmart (usually where I get my art supplies AKA yarn for knitting) and pretty close to a Marshalls (usually where I get clothes if there are no good clothes at Walmart) and 2 different market baskets(food shopping)
