    Depends what it is and what your personal situation is (and whether they acquired it legally!). If it was mega expensive I'd probably say thank you but I can't accept this. Otherwise I'd just be really grateful and thank them a lot, maybe do something to show my appreciation?

    Is the gift a reasonable one for them? so are they well off or are they are a really good friend who would go above and beyond to make you smile?

    Personally, if it was a really expensive thing, I probably wouldn't be able to accept it

    I'd thank them for it, let them know I appreciate the gift and how much it cost them.

    Well, do you think your mate will be happy with that? Would they feel embarrassed by you getting them that? If you are good friends and you are abe to afford it, then why not
    Just know your friend may feel a little guilty due to the price

    Ngl that would come off as pretty weird, buying your friend something so expensive. I dunno how I would feel if a friend of mine did that. It's too much.

    It's not creepy, but it's very expensive to be buying a friend. If a console is something you know they really want, then maybe you could talk to their parents and their parents get the console and you get a game or two and the comics?

    I'd definitely return the favour and give them a quality gift for their birthday.

    My experiences with friends was that when I'd buy them something I'd either get nothing back, or they'd gift me something that they already owned. I once got a used bath lotion off one person and a random ass box of clips off another. No thought put into it whatsoever.
