It really is the thought that counts

A recent study shows that “If you want to win the object of your affection, an extravagant gift that has no resale value is the way to go”. That is to say that gifts of shared experiences or gifts that required thought and preparation are more valuable to most people than gifts that are simply expensive. I like that they specify that men can “avoid gold-diggers” this way because lord knows there are NEVER instances where a man is using a woman for her money. Ultimately I agree and find the gifts that are dearest to me were the simple ones that were full of thought or personal meaning.

    Well-said. Many a gift I have received was hand-made or thoughful. I would rather have those than any others.

    So true. And that’s why you’ll always be my gold mine, I mean chipmonkey.
