    If it's a dog toy you should be offended. Other than that a gift is a gift, although if you're going to tell him you're not happy, explain why.

    I honestly don't see what the issue of the teddy bear being from a pet shop... why is that a bad thing?

    Based on that, I think you are being unreasonable (especially if you liked the teddy bear) and I wouldn't be annoyed at all...

    Maybe it is a teddy bear from a charity or fund, sold at the pet shop? are you sure it is from a pet shop at all? what is so terrible about it coming from a pet shop?

    What is wrong with a petshop? :confused:

    Teddy bears are actually quite expensive nowadays for what they are, if he's a student then it's likely he won't have much money to spare, maybe petshops were the cheapest option?

      Maybe he's become pathologically delusional. Watch out for the following:

      - Bonios start appearing in the biscuit tin
      - He starts expecting you to piss outside
      - He starts repeatedly calling your name in a fast high-pitched voice to gain your attention
      - Your next date is at the vet

      It would have been worse If he'd got you a pet puppy from a toy shop, that would have raised even more questions IMO.

      If there's ever something for a boyfriend to complain to his mates about, rightfully, over a pint, then it's this.

      If you bought him something special that you put a lot of thought into, and in return he picked up a random teddy while he was buying cat food, you're allowed to be a bit upset.

      You can also be slightly upset if it was a birthday present of something, but it might have been better to keep it to yourself to avoid hurting his feelings.

      If, however, he was out buying cat food, saw the teddy, and bought it for you as a nice surprise, without expecting anything in return, you're being very unreasonable.
      "Oh, that surprise present you bought me with no real reason isn't good enough because it didn't come from the right place."
