    As a woman, I wouldn't want some BS pity gift. I would want a sincere apology, to my face, and space to decide whether I still want to be friends with someone who talks about me behind my back.

    I'm sure that giving her a mallot and then blindfolding yourself and standing in a wide stance would allow her to forgive and forget.;)


    TBH, I think that a sincere, heartfelt apology is the best way to go. If you give her something, it may be seen as diversionary by her.

    I wouldn't buy her a gift. Treating her to a meal would be nice.

    I think it was a Freudian slip. :) You’d take the gift and be mad about it, but you’d take the gift. :p

    Ask her out to dinner, tell her you want to talk, if she refuses, talk right there.

    Just man/woman up and ask for forgiveness. Let her explain why she is hurt and truly listen. Then if you think you can apologize and handle not doing it again then try. If you think it'll happen again just let her be.
