    I would usually keep things secret, but my previous post was about encouraging you good people to share the Lovehoney love.

    I felt I should lead by example, it would be wrong of me to expect others to do something that kind am not prepared to do myself.

    I agree with you, I once sent a gift to someone anonymously who posted that she danced around her coffee table with surprise when she opened her gift!

    I am sure she had lots of fun working out who had sent the gift.

    It is great that sharing a little Lovehoney love could bring so much pleasure and that was before she used it!

    Ithinkif it was clear that someone was being driven mad by not being able to work out who had sent their gift I would have to drop some hints. Lol

    Personally the only motive I have for sending gifts is to cheer up someone or to thank them for just being there for me.

    I would never expect anything in return, only the knowledge that there are still kind genuine people about.

    It you haven't given someone something just for the joy of giving and getting nothing in return or even knowing what they did with it, then you haven't lived and it's something to add to your bucket list.
    Usual examples of this are giving something to a homeless person, passing on an unexpired parking pay and display ticket to someone else, passing your clubcard points to the person behind because you won't use them, paying bus fare for the person who hasn't got enough change etc...
    Try it mightybum it's liberating to be kind, and that person will probably tell the story of your random act of kindness maybe for months or years after and help restore peoples faith in the human race.

    I'm now souning a bit hippy (though I'm not) but you know what I mean. Lol

    I agree with HH, Mrs A and KF. It feels really good to do something for another person and more so when it's unsought.

    I'm actually still feeling good about helping out a lost gentleman yesterday - I'm usually the one who needs directions so it was nice to be able to help for a change!

    I suppose there are some people who might expect something in return but I'm pretty sure those people are in the minority here, especially now the chat function no longer exists to attract certain kinds of people. The best thing about the LH forums is that the majority of members are kind, friendly and supporting of one another and I guess would only ask the same in return. I'm pretty sure that most people who have sent gifts wouldn't dream of expecting a return gift by default.

    This does however remind me of the episode of the Big Bang Theory in which Sheldon stresses over the concept of sending Penny a Christmas present (it was on TV yesterday!) :)

    Mighty Bum, there was no ulterior motive I have sent gifts before. No expectations although usually the recipient has been posting about being down or going through a tough time. I do it because at times when I needed a boost someone has sent me something unexpected.

    On the other thread Mrs A called it 'paying it forward' I like the concept of doing something nice just because you can and that was the only reason I sent it.

    Aww thanks GG! Yes it's lovely getting a surprise pressie. I feel very blessed *blushes*

    I never give to get I gust like giving. In fact one of the reasons I sometimes (and not often) wish I had more is so that I can do more for others.

    If I had more money I'd be more hospitable.
    If I had a bigger dining room/kitchen I could have more people over for sunday dinner, if I had a big garden I could invite all the neighbours and their kids roud for a BBQ.
    I do these things anyway but it would be nice to not have to restrict these things because of space ansd cost.

    Thanks for my surprise gift KF, I like to give my time to and share my experiences with my forum friends, I don't expect anything in return, just the nice warm feeling I get when I feel I have been able to help or even raise a laugh or two.

    But it is still an incredible feeling when someone appreciates me enough to send me a surprise gift, thank you very much.

    Big Hampshire hugs from your father Ted

    Careful now!

    What if he or she is getting off to the thought that you're getting yourself off because of their actions? Just a thought.

    dosen't bother me in the slightest . so long as everyone's having a harmless good time its all good :) x
