    she's always buying/she'll always buy/she always buys

    Hello everyone,

    Is there any difference in meaning between these three sentences?

    1. "She's really generous, she's always buying me presents."
    2. "She's really generous, she'll always buy me presents."
    3. "She's really generous, she always buys me presents."

    Thank you.

    There's no effective difference: you're going to end up with loads of presents!

    The first could possibly be the most frequent purchaser of presents.
