According to Papsie, gift-giving is parallel to one’s stature in life. It goes the same with one choosing a gift for his girlfriend or boyfriend. The market has a lot to offer as christmas gifts for girlfriend or boyfriend but if one has the same perception as Papsie where it depends on one’s living standard and readiness in gift-giving, the choices are limited because that would mean costly and rare gifts.
I don’t know but I feel uneasy with costly gifts. I prefer gifts that would be valuable and usable. It’s just me probably. I was not born with a golden spoon in my mouth and with my age where I get to meet people, I do not intend to be with or belong to the pompous asses. I do not intend to be a social climber neither. I am not saying this because I am bitter or envious of another individual’s stature. Being an elitist is not a guarantee to one’s happiness, I believe. I know people who are not happy with the splendor of richness around.
I guess, for me, it’s more of the thought, time and effort choosing a gift. If I am a girlfriend, it would be more about the thought and love that comes with the gift, price tags cut off. I would not want an expensive gift from a Benedict Arnold.
