    I was not trying to cause a chain of compulsory giving. I just thought it was such a kind idea that some people touched by such kindness might want to spread that joy.

    I have had a gift when I was at my lowest after finding out my womb had tilted again and I would probably need another operation. It was the nicest surprise I've ever had.
    And I have also gifted a present to someone when they were low and needed cheering up.
    It's a lovely idea.

    I have actually done that a couple of times - surprising people from the forum with a tiny gift. The feeling is great - making someone happy. I really like making gifts - even more than receiving them.

    Now, my last order, most of it anyway, is actually a gift for a special friend of mine. And I can't wait to see their reaction when they get it!

    People on this forum often buy each other gifts - there is even a topic about that - for the people who receive the gifts to say they have received them!

    I like the gift giving idea but I would not just give thm out. I would only send them to people I feel I have made a connection with over time :)

    What a lovely and generous idea!!! Don't ever think you would be considered creepy, you're a warm hearted generous person who loves to see other people happy. I'm the same sort of person, I enjoy much more to give than to have, which sometimes has caused problems within my family. They tell me that I give too much and they can never pay it back and I'm telling them it's not the idea by giving to expect something back. It is, as you say, the joy of seeing other people happy.

    Does anyone know if you can use your Oh points to send a gift to someone ? This would enable anyone who is a little strapped for cash to send a gift if it's something they would like to do.

    john69, I have the same problem. Even recently I had an argument with my husband that I am giving too much to my friends and I don't get that much in return. Which actually shocked me - I have never done it to receive back. Whenever I can help someone, I do it and only by helping them, it gives me such joy, I believe I do it more for me rather than for others.

    Terri JJ, it is not possible. At least not for the moment.
