Glad you asked. I like to be given stuff that I wouldn't get myself. That's the short answer. Of course, this leaves many scratching their heads namely hubby. So, I thought why don't I make life easier for him (for once! he would say.) Anyway, here's a list, in no particular order of things that popped into my head.
