I don't usually make actual lists, but I do usually have a couple of things in mind that I'd like, and my family is good about getting me things I've requested. That's how my family works--we just tell each other. I have a couple of friends who always insist on surprising me because *they* like surprises, and I appreciate the thought, but I never end up using things I didn't ask for, most of the time, unless it's something that's really "me," like makeup or music-related items.
