It's up to you. Giving a gift shouldn't be about whether or not that person has ever given something to you.

Treat others the way you want to be treated. (Not the way they treat you) :)

But that's why it's called a gift, not a payment. If you're constantly thinking about whether or not he's giving something to you in return rather than just giving for the sheer joy of giving, then what's the point?

 I agree with this. It sucks that he doesn't do the same for you though.

 Honestly, with a gift there should be no expectations of repayment. Don't play the tit-for-tat game, if you are going to give him something as a gift, do it wholeheartedly and expect nothing in return.
