I understand that gifting should be mutual, I am below level 300 and very poor in charges. Because, I use them all to get cash for the Mayan Runes I to get jewels, silver tarra and gold tarra cards.

I also keep my neighborhood below 100 and give at least one thing to everyone, everyday. I wish I could say I get back half the amount I send. My list always has the things.

But I do have some very generous neighbors that keep me on the loop with those special things I request some times.

Good luck I your expeditions.

Indeed, the subject of gifting comes up every now and then, and there's probably no right way to do it.

For me, I gift all non-sleepers every day whether their wish list is empty or not. it's the one thing I can do for my neighbors besides helping with expeditions, to show my appreciation and even with over 100 neighbors, some are always sleeping so I never run out of freebies. There are reasons why a wish list might be empty. Perhaps a neighbor is redoing their list which won't show until they refresh their game. Perhaps they forgot. Perhaps they are more into competitions.

For an empty wish list I give flints, ores, or buttons (when available). Everyone can use these.

I'm not picky about most things, but unlike my more relaxed neighbors, I am picky about gifting. I pay attention to wish lists: I never mass gift. It takes very little time to gift. I dislike receiving things not on my list. There are always freebies. I do not want charges for current offers (unless on the list) and I do not want those swirly things. I appreciate flints and ores. If a neighbor gives me some offbeat thing, I give it right back. If that continues, I eventually delete them.

It might be better if I had the same philosophy that some of my neighbors have - any gift is a good gift. But I try hard to give my neighbors what they ask for and I expect the same from them. That said, I'm very grateful for my wonderful neighbors!

Hello Thurber, I, for one, appreciate your policy of gifting what is on the wishlist and not just giving whatever may be the 'flavour of the day', always a good neighbour thank you!!!
