Receiving Gifts is a difficult love language for Eric and Jess, and only a little easier for Elena.
They’re not needy of tangible tokens of affection though they certainly will appreciate the right sorts of gifts — given from the heart.
The gift of a meal, or the gift of a trip planned together, these they all like. But random gifts and gifts that seem to be coming from a place of obligating them to someone are just… uncomfortable. “Why?” is almost always at the tip of their tongue.
They do enjoy gifts that are thoughtful: a favorite treat, a reservation to a unique spot that the giver (knowing them well) thinks they will enjoy. This is Elena and her Dulce Tipicos, and Jess appreciating the fro-yo date or tickets to a hockey game with Eric.
