Is it OK to reject a Valentine’s Day gift?

Hi SL Fabz,

I hope you all had a fab Valentine weekend!

Someone asked me the question above and the first thing that came to my mind was Omawumi’s song ‘If you ask me, na who I go ask?‘ Lol! But then I remembered my dear SL Fabz and decided to bring the question here.

Really, I’ve never been in that sort of situation where I had to reject a gift given to me on Valentine’s Day. But I know there are a number of situations that could result to that.

Maybe the gift was inappropriate or too intimate… imagine a guy you really don’t like giving you a sexy lingerie! Or you felt the gift would put you in a compromising situation…. like a married man or someone you know is in a relationship giving you an ‘I love you‘ gift.

In such situations, I think such gifts should be rejected. Or what do you think? Have you ever been in such a situation? Is it OK to reject a Valentine’s day gift? If you answer is YES, what kind of situation could warrant such a rejection?

Let’s discuss!

    It’s never OK to reject a Val gift or any gift at all from som1 who luvs u. U only reject d gift when both of u are not in gud terms. Probably u tink he/she wants to use d gift 2 cover up for his/her misdeeds. In such cases, turn down d gift n sort things out. If u are convinced then u may reconsider accepting d gift.

    Yes its very ok to reject a gift u dnt feel cool abt, I won’t accept a gift from a crush I dnt want to av anything to do with, collecting it will lead him on which I wouldn’t want, some gifts are jst uncalled for u jst have to be careful.
