Gillian Chung Does Not Want to Return Her Ex’s Gifts

Doki Doki Love <怦然心動20歲> is Gillian Chung’s (鍾欣桐) first reality show since her divorce. Despite her shocking weight gain, it did not affect her beauty and made her seem even more cute and approachable. With her interesting comments, Gillian kept the audience engaged and became one of the more popular stars in the show.

Doki Doki Love features ten 20-year-old students who have just graduated, and are invited by the show to go on a graduation trip. The guests including Gillian, Ning Jing (宁静), Li Xikan (李希侃), and Sunnee (杨芸晴) observe and provide commentaries on their interactions, relationships, and growth. They also share stories based on their own life experiences to guide and inspire the youths.

When the topic of whether they would keep or throw away presents gifted by past partners cropped up,  it led to a lively discussion. Gillian joked that it depends on how expensive the gift is. If it is a house, then she would definitely keep it.

When an ex had asked for her to return his gifts, Gillian declined. “Why should I return them?! I’ve gifted him many items as well. Everyone should be allowed to keep their memories.” She does not feel annoyed by these reminders of her ex even if she is surrounded by them at home.

“Every item represents a precious memory. Even if you are no longer together, you shouldn’t carelessly throw them away. What you need to take care of are the emotions, not the material items.”

Many netizens agreed with Gillian’s attitude and praised her for possessing a realistic and mature attitude.

  1. I have personally dispose all my ex’s gifts for me… but all done after 1years a part… Really did not need them around anymore. The jewelleries etc are given away. I would not bother to even sell the items.

    1. @hohliu I guess everyone is different. For me, I was so angry at him that I threw everything back at him, refusing to keep any memories of us. After physically move away, I kinda regretting it because I really love one of the gifts for what it is lol! So I think best is keep it and dispose them at your own time.

      It feels that Gillian is still fond of their memories together/the items are still of use to her lawl

    2. @hohliu
      I never dated but it depends on what it is. If it is something useful then maybe I would keep it. It also depends on how you break up. If I broke up on good terms then maybe I would keep some as a keepsake for memories. But if I had an ugly one, then I would get rid of it all or give it all back since what is the point of keeping it.

  2. I dunno, I guess it depends on the breakup. If it’s a mutual breakup, I don’t see any issues with keeping gifts from an ex. Heck, I think I still have a couple things from an ex, now that I think about it lol.

    Asking an ex for a gift back is petty and cheap though. You gave it to the person, it’s theirs to keep.

  3. i keep everything lol. no one has asked me for anything back either. in my experience, even if the break-up wasn’t always great, but the memories of when i was gifted the item were pleasant.
