I was thinking, I have a few friends who like to give presents. I however am an annoying person to buy stuff for. First off I'm not terribly fond of stuff, then if I do want something I either buy it or it's too expensive for me to buy. (Which puts it well outside the range of present prices.)

I've thought of a solution though, I've thought of something I do want from people. Unfortunatly I'm not sure if they'd like it. Things that I'd like are for the person wanting to provide a "present" to: eat vegetarian for a meal, day, etc; Walk or bike for a short trip (or more), or take a bus or train for a longer trip(s); Perhaps recycle something; Change some incandecent lights with compact florescents.

Am I violating the social conventions about presents too much with that list?
