when it comes to gifts, be honest
« on: June 30, 2009, 08:27:06 pm »
would you say you expect gifts for special occasions?

be totally honest.

for a birthday, graduation or some sort of special occasion? wedding, anniversary party? what have you....

im a very spoiled girl, spoiled sa fiance, sa family... i always love getting gifts and surprises, and since im honest, im always disapointed when i dont get things.. ill never mention it na "uy! birthday ko! saan gift ko"... NEVER AKO GANON... but secretly, deep inside, i hope that when you show up, may dala ka kahit small na cheap or whatever.. i guess im hoping to see na you thought of me...

walang plastic dito ha.. be honest... :)

for me greetings lang, solve na. ;)
one sad irony of self is that we always know what's right for others...while there are certain wrong things we pursue on our own.

I don't expect gifts kasi yung mga gusto ko sana iregalo nabibili ko naman so greetings are good for me. Basta ba naalala ako eh masaya na ko, plus nalang kung may gift.

i'm being honest when i say that i don't expect gifts.  wala lang, medyo awkward kasi feeling ko kapag binibigyan ako ng gift.  lalo na kung gustong buksan ko sa harap ng giver.  i know, sign siya ng kakulangan ko sa EQ. :-X

from my husband - i expect something but not necessarily a gift as in something material. maybe a nice dinner will do, mga ganon. i get disappointed when he doesn't do anything.

from my immediate family - we usually have dinner lang pag birthdays so we don't expect gifts. pero pag christmas, we give gifts. normally, we have wish lists so we get what we want.

from friends - maalala lang nila akong i-text or email ok na. better if i get a phone call. nah-hurt ako pag hindi ako naalala kahit sa text man lang.

same with all the others- from my SO, i don't really expect a gift but siguro kahit may gawin lang kami. dinner ganun. basta i-celebrate namin. from friends, masaya na maalala nila pero nagugulat pa din ako na naalala nila at will take time to greet me so i guess that means i don't expect anything from them either. from family, greetings lang din, happy na ako. saka ako ang nanlilibre kasi talaga pag birthday ko so ayun. sa office, nyikes, wish ko talaga makalimutan nila. ang awkward awkward eh. ;D

ako naman kasi if i really want something, i ask for it and never kasi humihingi kasi nasanay ako na bilhin ang gusto ko. if ever i ask, lambing lang yun. i remember the first gift my fiance gave me was a two piece swimwear na balak ko bilhin. surprised talaga ako. yung first gift na hiningi ko naman sa kanya as a lambing...book! o dba?
I am happy. I am blessed. I feel loved. I am in love.

sa bf i do expect something, alangan naman greeting lang "happy bday, love u!" ganun lang? haha doesnt have to be material, kahit yung effort lang to make it special ok na :)

sa friends naman i dont expect gifts pero yung mga kaclose ko talaga they should greet on the day.. i take it as a sign that they treasure me enough to remember my bday

my mom, yup humihingi ako ng gift haha!

i don't expect gifts from family and friends but i do expect a token or whatever from my fiance. actually, i expect flowers. i've never had a birthday since i was 15 that i've never received flowers so i always look forward to that.

gusto ko lang na mag-set ng time ang family ko and super close friends some time for dinner or lunch. okay na ako.
arf! arf! woof! woof!

I used to, but not anymore. I am content of what I have and besides if I don't get gifts, I can always buy them for myself. My boyfie asked me what my birthday wish was, and I told him just to love me.....more :)

...naanay lang siguro ako na walang nagbibigay sa akin ng gift, kaya hindi ako masyadong nag-eexpect. even though sometimes meron naman, and im thankful kahit papano may nakakaalala pa pala.... :D

^hehe, sis yan ang natanggap ko nung bday ko from my good friend: a kiss and a hug

though i was really expecting na he'll give something to me kasi nun bday niya i gave something.. with matching isang kahon pa ng chocolates (na talaga namang yun ang nakapagpabigat ng baggage ko!) pero since yun lang kaya niyang bigay okay na rin sa akin... kesa wala, ü

sa family ko wala ako ine-expect kasi di talaga mahilig mag-regalo ang mga parents ko..

from my family, okay lang kahit walang gift pag birthdays/xmas.

from my fiance, hindi siya mahilig magbigay ng gift, so nasanay na ako. but it would mean so much to me kung mageeffort siya, hindi material things, but mas maganda kung may surprise siya sakin.  :D

When I was younger, I would expect gifts from my parents. Nahihiya ako if the gift comes from other people even with close friends. Masaya na ako sa greetings lang. With material things kasi lalo na if it comes from mere acquaintances, napapraning ako na they might be asking me favors I could not refuse later on.

With hubby naman, he's very romantic in his own little ways. Dati kasi he would spend a lot on flowers, e hindi naman napapakinabangan after a few days. His effort to make my day special is more than enough na. Bonus na yung gifts.
