I always do, and most of my family appreciates it and sticks to it. I love books, movies and music as gifts, and people always want to know what I'm interested in this time of year. I keep my Amazon wishlist up to date.
Of course there are some (MIL) who want to get me other stuff-- knick knacks and the like-- and while I appreciate the thought she puts into those things, I'm not a knick knack person so it mostly goes to waste. She's not weird about it, though, never asks where something she gave me is or anything like that.

"And politically correct is the worst term, not just because it’s dismissive, but because it narrows down the whole social justice spectrum to this idea that it’s about being polite instead of about dismantling the oppressive social structure of power.
Fun Fact: When you actively avoid being “PC,” you’re not being forward-thinking or unique. You’re buying into systems of oppression that have existed since before you were even born, and you’re keeping those systems in place."
