    "too good for me" or "too good to me"

    Hi, long time no post!
    Could you tell me:
    when someone gives you something luxurious, would you say "too good for me" or "too good to me"?
    Thank you in advance!

    Hi Pink Dragon
    One might say that is too good for me when receiving an expensive gift, one might say she is too good to me if you often get expensive gifts and telling someone else about your gift giver.

    For some interesting reading try my blog.

    You can read it unless your in China.

    The article would be too good for you and the person, through their kindness, would be too good to you.
