Which is just a little rose graphic that shoots from your avatar to thiers then sits next to their avatar until someone buys them something else or the timer runs out on it. It's free poker, so it doesn't actually cost anything. The application is called "Zynga Poker" and I play via myspace or facebook.

People send the items as a way of flirting or just to be friendly or funny (e.g. You can send someone a box of tissues after they lose a big hand.)
I see; it sounds like they have little casino-ish things you can do as if you were really partying and drinking in a casino.

I understood the part about the rose being one of those little icons and not actually part of the game, but at first I was failing to see how playing online poker would include something like that.
