I like witty and clever funny things, and cultish kitsch, like majolica, star trek, bumper stickers, "mean" t-shirts, skulls and bones, band-aid with goofy pattern or kitchen gadgets that look like animals - I like irony and sarcasms, have a little dark sense of humor...
I don't like "cute" like pink kittens, Mickey Mouse, "my little ponny" and "hug bears" - or other "grown-ups playing teenagers" stuff. Like t-shirts with glitter or something like "cute", "pretty" or "princess" written on. Great on a 13-years-old, awful on a 33-years-old.

I love mother-of-pearl and polished shells, but I don't like "shelly" shells
I don't like plastic, acrylic, nylon. Some things are better made of these materials, and I understand that in a swap these materials are affordable and light, so this isn't a big deal.
Manmade fibers and plastic are great when it comes to making "ivory" and "tortoise shell". I like both, but I don't want one animal to die for it.

I like earrings (I have pierced ears), especially large, gypsy style things, oriental or baroque things.

I have a husband, who is Jewish, and would appreciate anything Jewish, and he also loves bears and black-and-white cows, so anything with bears or cows or in cow-print, is going to be received with great joy :-)
I also have a black-and-white springer spaniel, who loves squeeky toys and balls.
I don't have children, and won't get any either, so I would find babystuff, booties, toys and so on, very painful...
