    ive seen people on here talking about giving and recieving gifts from other LH users, is this actually a thing? how does it happen? and why do people do it?

    It happens quite a bit. Some people use the forum often and make friends on here that they may choose to gift. I haven't experienced it myself apart from being offered to have lingerie bought for me. I didnt know the person and it made me a bit uncomfortable so I politely declined their offer.

    Christ knows, seems like madness to me. Why on earth would one buy something for someone else. Craziness.

    i understand that, i once had a friend offer to buy me some but the thought of wearing or using something with my boyfriend that another guy bought me might be a bit weird, but i suppose it would be a really good way of recieving something that i cant afford myself, and i guess as you get to know someone itll get easier to accept these gifts.

    I imight be wrong but my perceptionis that it's a bit like giving presents at Christmas and then placing yourself under pressure to return the favour.

    i can see both good and bad points, suppose once you do it a few times it starts to becomes normal for both parties

    if you have an understanding with the person then maybe the pressure will be eliminated

    People make friends and bonds on here which they might not get elsewhere and start doing favours and such. Then there's people who are just generous and then there's the ones that expect favours back like photos and things. Just gotta wait and see :)

    Some people don't want gifts back, they are just being friendly and giving gifts :)

    Not at all in my opinion it's even more of a thrill thinking somes bought it for you. Like an admirer!

    then they get the thrill knowing you've used it so its a win win

    Yes they don't see your address or name they pay and LH do the rest.

    so one day a random package comes to your house and you have no idea how or where it came from?

    You get an email informing you of the package and that someone's bought you it (you don't see who's bought it)

    It is. I just gifted a friend something because she'd been very kind to me during a tough time. It really isn't about gifting back and forth for most of us I think. I'm a student so I couldn't afford much but I saw something small and fun. It's not the price tag that counts.x
