sorry gift

(名詞) 內疚禮物。

這是指某人因某事感到內疚而買來道歉、賠不是或讓心裡感到好過一些的禮物,如男女朋友吵架後男方買來送給女方的禮物,丈夫在外偷吃後深感愧疚而買來送給妻子的禮物,或大把花錢的先生感到內疚而買來送給省吃儉用的太太的禮物。

引句:
Because guilt over spending is playing a big role in the sales downturn, he teaches salespeople to suggest a “sorry gift”—of another timepiece—for a wife who might be disappointed that her husband just dropped a sizable sum on his own wrist.
—Christina Binkley, " How to Sell a $35,000 Watch in a Recession," Wall Street Journal, August 4, 2009
