If he pushes I would graciously accept but not hold him to it. Some people express approval or happiness with gifts, and it sounds like he’s one of those people. He knows his finances better then anyone and if he’s comfortable and even excited to be so generous then that’s his choice, I would just be careful that this doesn’t become something that he holds over your head later.

At the end of the day though you need to do what makes you the most comfortable!

What’s a “game player”?

For you issue, I would probably be uncomfortable about it, too. nowing my Darling Husband and his frinds, he would want to accept and I would let him. I mean, as long as the friend really wants to gift you out of the goodness of his heart and not for bragging rights, which seems to be the case.

I agree with @batwoman:  that he knows his finances and if he insists I would graciously accept.

I know that I am definitely a giver, I love giving someone something that they will truly enjoy. I often prefer giving gifts to recieving them. Seeing the happiness something that I did or bought for them is truly something special! It sounds like this guy is also a generous giver. I think he enjoys being able to do something for a friend.

He sounds like a good friend!

I would graciously accept! My FI’s BFF is like that, too! If he wants to give, let him!
