Everyone always says it's the thought that counts. Do you agree? Or do people just say that to be nice?
How do you feel about homemade gifts? Like cookies or fudge?
I'm an excellent chef and I love to make cookies, but if I keep them in the house, I will eat them! So, I tend to give tins of cookies away often as gifts.
Do you think people actually appreciate it? Or do they throw them in the garbage without tasting them?

It IS absolutely the thought that counts. That's just it, thought needs to be put into the gift. Food is fine as long as you've thought about the recipient before making it and giving it to them. Are they diabetic? Are they trying to lose weight? So on and so forth. I personally wouldn't want goodies because I try to watch what I eat and sweets are just too tempting. My friends should know that so a gift of chocolates from one of them would make me think that it was just a thoughtless, last-minute gift. If you know that your recipient would love some baked goods, then of course it is a great gift! :-)

well I think it depends on who is getting the gift because lets face it some people can just be plain ungrateful, me on the other hand I totally think its the thought that counts, IMO if someone is nice enough to go out of there way to think of you when making something or buying something no matter what it is I think you should be grateful
