    She bought a gift for even me

    She bought a gift even for me. VS. She bought a gift for even me.

    I am really sorry about dragging this question out, but if you do not mind, could you tell me if you can sense any difference between the two sentences? I think that there is not much difference to distinguish between them. What do you experts think? Thank you so much as always and have a good day.

    You'll hear both, and there's no difference.

    Re: She bought a gift for even me

    Thank you and could you take a look at this?

    Even you should buy a gift for her.

    You should buy a gift even for her.

    I think that in the examples, when even modifies you or for her, there is a slight meaning difference. Do you agree with this? Thank you so much and I hope I do not bother you a lot.
