    Asking for gifts back?

    Advertisements
    Have you ever bought an SO an expensive gift, let's say $600+? If the relationship didn't work would you ask for it back?

    I wouldn't. That's tacky, IMO. Once you give a gift, it is no longer yours.

    "Thank you so much. No matter what, nothing is possible without you behind the scenes bustin heads and takin names. Thank you again. Everything you have done for me means a lot and nothing has gone unnoticed. I love you so much and thank you for saying 'I do.'"

    I spent that much money on my DH before (like before we were married I mean), but it was on things like trips and stuff rather than just a material object.

    Unless it were an engagement ring or something though, I would not ask for it back. Gifts are gifts.

    If I felt hesitation about giving it, I wouldn't.

    What would you do with it if you did get it back?

    That would be the only case where I think it would be appropriate to ask for it back. A gift is a gift.


    Actually there is one other instance asking for a gift back would be okay - if it was a family heirloom.

    The only thing I would ask for back would be a car, and that's only if it was in my name and I was making payments on it.

    And I agree with Chandy, if it was a family heirloom

    I didn't think about a gift you might be making payments on - whatever it may be. If you are still making payments on it when you call it quits, they need to give it back, or take over the payments...and with a car, that means they would have to pay whatever taxes and such to get the title changed into their name, too. I think, in that case, I would just ask for the car back though, as I wouldn't want any legal battles.
