    ***** NOT A TEACHER *****

    Hello, Untaught:

    While you and I are waiting for the answer to your great question, I did find something that might interest you.

    1. "Guilt trippers attempt to manipulate or control your behavior by using guilt-inducing statements, looks or threats." -- DR. CAT'S HELPING HAND (2000) Google "books".

    2. An example of a guilt tripper's statement: "After all I've done for you, you refuse to do this one little thing for me. How could you [treat me this way]?" -- HONEST TO GOD? (1992) Google "books."

    3. "[A controller] could be someone who has done a lot for you in the past -- and who regularly reminds you of it." -- APPROVAL ADDICTION (2005) Google "books."

    Re: Any specific word for

    Hi- do you mean someone who meets you and says, " Hi, remember that gift I gave you?" Or do you mean someone who, when you meet them, it just reminds you of the gift?
    The other way round- if you have a gift and it reminds you of the giver whenever you see it or use it; that could be called a memento.
    But I also wondered whether you were hoping for serious answers or jokey answers.
