Two types of gifts

This is inspired by Director Yim Ho, but I somehow formulated it before I saw his movie.

There are two types of gifts for girls, the expensive kind and the intellectual kind. The expensive (or materialistic, if you will) kind is self-explanatory, e.g. Millionaire Lau's one page's newspaper ad wishing a Michele happy birthday, the bidding of a license entitled "I Luv U" or "Aaron," a very expensive ring from Tiffany's.

The intellectual kind is often simple yet speaks a thousand words. For example, a hand-drawn birthday card, a mix CD of songs carefully selected (or back in the days, a mixed cassette tape), the First Edition of a book you only mentioned it once during conversation that you have always wanted to read but never have read, a drawing, etc.

Director Yim says, if you are a girl who often receives the intellectual gifts, then you are special because in order to receive an intellectual gift, you must have worked magic on the guy first.

So are you the kind of person who usually get the expensive gift or the intellectual gift?
