love tokens

I am thoughtful this evening, on the subject of love tokens - all kinds. Romantic, intimate, friendship, other kinds of bonds; and every type of thing: wedding rings, body mods, furniture, animals, and so on.

What have you given, or been given, that has been so perfect it stilled you? Have you ever been given a love token that revealed how little the person knew you? Given one that was declined? What do you do with them if the relationship sours? What conditions must be met for you before you give, or accept, a permanent token like a tattoo, brand, or cutting? Do poly issues crop up? Do you prefer things to wear, things to use, something else - or nothing at all? Why?

I look forward to hearing all about it.
