    I am a girl who doesn't like to wear makeup, dresses quite plainly but always maintains her hygiene. Throughout my life I have always received gifts which have been used/old/cheap. I understand that its the thought that counts but let's be realistic here I am usually the person to give a gift first regardless of whether I received anything in return first, I always go all out on their gifts (okay sometimes it may be a generic gift but at least its brand new and something which they can benefit from). I like to think myself as being a generous person. But my friends always give me used jewelry/makeup. My boyfriend during the 2nd year of our relationship gave me such cheap generic poorly made gifts the teddy bear was ripped and the photo frame had a misspelling on it. It hurts me a lot because I consider the gifts as a measure of our relationship and a reflection of their thoughts and perceptions of me.

    What do you guys think?
