@ poster, I dont see y her family is freaking out. I dont think there's anything wrong in engraving her name on the gift. I would do it for anyone so that when they see that gift in future they'd be like, Aunt ? gave it to me when I was 10 but thats by the way. In my opinion the only thing that wasnt very proper was giving a 10 yr old a very expensive gift. Give gifts according to age/maturity so that people would value it more and know that we dont pluck money from trees. Giving that gift of IPod Nano to a responsible 14 yr old is ok but not to a 10 yr old. I dont know if thats a common gift for lovers in Nigeria since someone mentioned giving the same exact thing to his girl. Nigerians have very different mentality in a lot of things cause if the parents weren't feeling the gift cause its expensive thats a different issue but seeing it as 'love' gift is appalling to me.

So, take back ur gift. Give her a box of chocolate and a beautiful sundress.

If someone buys my child an Ipod Nano, my only concern will be to make sure that the gift is really free.

Why should I be angry? That is one less Ipod Nano I have to buy. Anything that saves me money is good!

An ipod nano is just out of question.

Every loving parent would think that you have something with their little girl; you yourself just imagine that you have a little daughter and someone buys her an expensive gift, you won’t be comfortable that’s how it is.

I think it's probably the fact that you had her name engraved on the Ipod that caused the trouble - it's the sort of thing you do for a girlfriend or wife, certainly not something you do for a kid.

Also, these are not cheap. Do you know what the parents bought her? If you bought her a 'better' present than they did, they are naturally hurt. No parent wants to be outdone. I didn't have much money when my son was young and I would have hated it if someone else had just come along and bought him something expensive and made my own gifts look like rubbish.

Or perhaps she had asked for one and they said no, they didn't think she was old enough/another reason she couldn't have one? You've not bought a normal small gift for a friend's child - you've gone overboard. They either think you are trying to outdo them or that your intentions towards their daughter are something they are not comfortable with.

You shouldn't buy children expensive or personalised gifts without clearing it with the parents first - it's just bad manners.

Speak to the parents. Find out why they didn't like the gift, then apologise.

You're probably right about that. My advice is brash.

However, if they think you're trying to date their babythe girl,

you're better off cutting her off completely. Don't be wicked to yourself.

People are very sentimental where little kids are concerned. You could get into trouble.

No. She's not your daughter. You shouldn't talk to her again. You have nothing to discuss with her.

Problems like this are easily solved. Just take back your gift and cut off the entire family from your life.

The issue here is not location based. You should be asking for the

kind of relationship that exist between the him, the Girl's parents

and the girl. Don't think there has ever been love lost between him

and the girls family. But I quess buying a girl of 10 such items is a bit

on the extreme.[/color][color=#990000][/color][color=#990000]

Sorry to hear about that but you should know better the way Nigerians think is different from the way people abroad think.What you gave the 10 year old girl is what most lovers give thier girls on Feb 14( What you did was exactly what i gave my girl) so people will definately raise eye brows

What you did was not your fault ooooooooo.Its juts that the people in your house dont see thing the way you see things

Sounds like love gift (conclusion)
