I’m not into buying presents for people, especially the person I’m with. It’s not that I’m greedy or anything because I’m not. In fact, I like sharing and I am a very generous person. But presents are just very socially and emotionally political in a way.
While they’re just an expression of thoughtfulness to some people, others take gifts very seriously. If you buy them a cheap present they are deeply offended and if you buy them an expensive present it’s got to be the perfect thing. What’s the most expensive thing you’ve ever bought for the person you’re with and did they like it? I know a few people who have had great presents from their partners, which includes property or expensive cars. I’ve never been that lucky.
