Just wondered what people's views are on those people who take your gift every year but never give back?

Gifts don’t have to be reciprocated, a gift should be something you want to give without expectation or obligation.

My first recollection of giving and not getting back was at school when a classmate told me she had got me a present that she would give to me at the school Christmas party. We hadn't much money coming in and I had to ask for extra pocket money in order to reciprocate.
On the day of the party, I gave her a box of chocolates, she thanked me and went off to join other girls leaving me confused and rather upset. It's a long time since this happened but it has stayed in my mind.

The cats are very good at choosing presents for me ... this year they've bought me a new phone ... last year it was Christian Dior perfume and the year before that they really pushed the boat out and bought me a car! :woohoo:

I spend quite a lot on presents for relatives and I don't mind that they give me Dove gift sets as long as I have such generous pets.

Those people serve a vital purpose--I regift things I do not like to them and make it their problem. It keeps the clutter out of my house, I still gave a gift because I am a kind and loving spirit, and it serves them right for being greedy little snots.

If the gifts I give to people make them happy, that is all I ask for, I don’t give to receive,
