It's funny, as I've gotten older, I "want" stuff less. It's hard now to come up with birthday suggestions - I usually ask folks to donate to animal rescues. Being retired means I don't need stuff to go to work, which really reduced the amount of "stuff" I wanted or needed. I've always bought quality over quantity so my "stuff" has lasted a long time. I think as you get older you realize "stuff" is mostly an encumbrance. What matters are experiences and relationships. I'd much rather go "do" something than buy something now. Memories last forever.
