when it comes to gifts...

- i spend so much effort in thinking not just the best, but something that he/she will really like, really need, or can use.
- i love wrapping my own gifts. hindi ako nagpapagiftwrap sa department store or bookstore. i also love personalizing each gift.
- i expect gifts pag birthday & christmas... tsaka pag anniversary namin ni bf. kahit simpleng card, or kahit maliit na gift... super appreciated ko talaga.
- i loooove receiving & giving gifts!!!
Loved. Happy. Blessed.

me naman, i'd would rather not get anything than getting something na di ko naman gusto or di ko magagamit. kaya everytime may occasion (b-day, x-mas). sinasabi ko na sa mga friends ko kung ano gusto ko...like sasabihin ko talagang "sa b-day ko hwag nyo na ako bigyan ng gifts pero if ever gusto nyo akong bigyan scented candle na lang ah". ayoko kasi ng clutter sa bahay.

ako kahit walang greetings or gifts ok lang sakin. sinasabihan ko pa nga mga friends ko wag nyo na ko batiin sayang piso pang load, o sayang pinambili sa gift. hehe. I'm uber fussy & very practical, kung hindi ko kailangan yung gift, sayang lang. nakakahiya namang ipasa sa iba. I will appreciate a homecooked meal than a bottle of lotion that I wouldn't use :)

Nasanay kasi ako na nung bata na kapag birthday ko or kapag christmas sobrang naspoil ako ng relatives and parents ko sa gifts so hanggang ngayon medyo nadala ko pa yun. Hehe. Actually ang pinaka gusto ko talaga yung thrill ng may bubuksan.. Dun ako pinaka masaya. Lagi kong sinasabi sa parents ko na ayoko ng pera, gusto ko talaga yung may binubuksan para mukhang pinaghandaan. Kahit na alam kong last minute na nila binili yun. Haha.

Sa friends naman parang given na din kasi na nagbibigyan kami ng gifts eh. Hindi din naman sa nageexpect, pero nasa nature na kasi namin yung isurprise yung isa kapag bday niya, ganun. Pero never naman kami nagdemand na "O dapat ganito, bilhan mo ko ng ganyan"
Brilliance requires patience.

Family ko, mahilig magbigay ng gifts. Ang sarap kasing buksan. Lalo na yung tipong pupunitin mo yung gift wrapper! Weee!! Kaya ayoko ng plastic wrappers. Hindi kasi mapunit. LOL.

I don't expect any gifts now. Matanda na rin siguro ako. LOL. Nadala na ako kasi dati, ineexpect ko talaga gifts from my hubby. Minsang binigyan ba naman ako ng gift set. Alam niyo yun, yung may handkerchief, cologne etc na nakabox? Ang iyak ko talaga nun. LOL. Tapos next naman, contact lens! Wow! Hindi siya talaga marunong magbigay ng gift kasi di nila nakasanayan sa family. So after that, I gave up. Ngayon naman, mas sophisticated na siya magbigay. Laptop, cell phone... pero always practical gifts and I always ask for it.

Pero ako I love, love, love giving gifts! I love wrapping them. I love thinking about the perfect gift to give my family and friends kaya all year round ang gift shopping ko. Pareho kami ni sis angelspawn.

  In our family, we don't give gifts unless it's christmas..pero pag birthdays, ang pinakagift na namin is  usually is yung ico contribute nila na food pandagdag sa handa ng celebrant....

   for my hubby, sadly he isn't that sweet in giving gifts kaya i went past that stage  na mag expect, but ok lang sa akin kasi nasanay na ako :)

Actually my family don't give me gifts even during my birthday but I usually have something for them like for my sister, I already have something prepared for her birthday.

My bf wanted a hugo boss shirt, that's what he got :)  He is the only one who gives me gifts too.

I don't expect gifts, just greetings. To be honest, I don't like getting gifts, because most of the time people get me stuff that I don't like haha.

^^ Haha That's funny sis and kinda true din  ;D

I don't expect gifts from other people even from my relatives but I always expect something from my hubby. Kaso he's not the creative and i'll-surprise-my-wifey-type of guy. So he asks me what I want and when he asks, I know I can always have what I really want.
Whatever I want, I get. If I can't, I don't stop TRYING.

I love giving gift but I dont expect in return except for one person in my life na talagang lagi ako ng nag-eexpect mula sa kanya HUBBY ko sinanay kasi nya ako ng ganun kaya kapag wala syang gift sakin as in sama ng loob ko.

ako naappreciate ko talaga pag may nagbibigay sa akin ng gift. Kasi bihira lang yon, most of the time sa family namin ako nagbibigay ng gift or surprises sa kanila. kay pag binibigyan ako ng mga nieces or nephews ko ng gift kahit maliit na bagay gustong gusto ko talaga.

nope.  Di ako pinalaki na maraming gifts.  Parents ko, pag very special occasion lang (and that doesn't include birthdays).  I think we're more on family dining instead of gift giving.  Sa dad ko nga, never pa yata ako nakatanggap ng gift.  Pero you can ask him for almost anything and he lets you buy stuff out of his credit card.  I think he likes giving the things you need at the moment and don't wait for special occasions.

Sa bf, gusto ko may surprises kaya lang hindi siya ganon.  He asks first if I like this and that and if he doesn't get any extreme reaction, he won't give it.  Parang he waits for me to ask :(

when i was younger, i did expect gifts from people. when i grew up, hindi na. mas gusto ko surprises kaysa sa gift. mga surprise trips, ganyan. or sa case ng bf ko, pag may ginawa siya na ndi niya talaga ginagawa like writing me a letter or cooking something for me. mas tumatatak kasi sa utak ko and mas nasisiyahan ako pag ganun. pero ako mapagbigay ng gift. ang sarap ng feeling pag may binibigay ka sa loved ones lalo pa't hindi expected. nakaka-reinforce ng bond. kaya kahit walang okasyon, namimigay ako. hehe
Do the things you think you can't do.

People may hate you for being different but deep down they wish they had the courage to do the same.

The first to apologize is the bravest. The first to forgive is the strongest. The first to forget is the happiest.
