Accepting Gifts

What is the most expensive gift you've ever received? But what is the best gift you've ever received in your life? May not necessarily be the same thing. Some women I know, are used to accepting expensive gifts. Doesn't matter that it came from a married man, they justify it by saying that they have loads of money. Or that it was the man's choice to get her the gift. Sure, she may have dropped a few hints- window shopping together at the jewellery store etc. It is a woman's prerogative to accept gifts, irregardless how expensive it is. But... it is also a woman's choice whether to accept the gift or not. I have a friend who's in China now, and he bought a ring card for a girl he's courting in Malaysia. The girl accepted the gift, but despite all that, tell friends that she has no interest in him, that he's too boring for him. And so, I wanna know why she's accepting the gift? Put him on the KIV list? Or is it just plain GREED? Most people would not admit that they are just that, GREEDY. Maybe people just don't find satisfaction in buying something with their own bloodsweat money anymore. But well think about it, the best gifts are not necessarily the most expensive one. It's just more exciting for them to wrench a gift from a sohai (don't think there's a better word for this.) What goes around comes around..anyways :)

The most expensive gift that I have received is the love showered to me by my parents and my good friends who are constantly there.

a gift comes from the heart.

Maybe the guy in China was too taken away by that song of Scorpions "What you give, you get back....". Hhaah.

It's the thought that counts. The significance of a gift varies from person to person. A diamond ring gift from a millionaire may not mean much. Anyway, I was never good with gifts, either giving or accepting...
