HI
I agree with all other members...
And my opinion is both are important...
All the members said ..Thoughts are important....But how he/she would know about your thoughts and caring???...Your gift shows that.....so I think both are important...

He/She would never know your thoughts and caring if you get him/her one chewing gum...........or even worth than that :lol:

Hi!
I also agree with everybody! (How clever you are :mrgreen:)

As long as the present is sent with love :roll: , it doesn't matter how much it costed. What I would really care is if it isn't through bearing in mind the other person's likes, as well as the quality of the gift :wink: . When I say quality, I don't mean expensive things. fortunately, there are many possibilities to give someone a cheap but excellent present (why not, handwork or something like that).

The occasion could also determine the kind of present you should give.

So, rather than how expensive it is, is how careful you are to send a good present. :D

:mrgreen:

Yup, a handmade greeting card, soap, candle, knitted stuff, folded stars can light my day. :wink:

Hi! :wink:

That's why presents given by children are usually more delighting...

Unless the person who receives it is very demanding.
No, I'm not talking about my father... :roll:

Yeah! That's why I love receiving presents from my nephews. Their presents are so cute. 8)

:lol: like my uncle. He loves receiving presents, but he always has to complain first.

It doesn't matter at all. presents always show love and care....so whatever the gift is we should feel grateful towards the person who has given us a gift and with a big smile.

hmmm, if some one loves me that much that he/she is trying to show their kindness by giving a gift, then at least they can spend some time and choose some good presents, right?

but as if I give a damn! I will accept any present with a big smile since I believe I don't deserve such attention in the first place, haha. ^__^
