Te obsequia

I saw te obsequia on an advertisement tonight and thought it was interesting.

The verb is obsequiar and its meaning is similar to the English word obsequious which means to fawn over someone or be ingratiating. Obsequiar means to shower someone with attention or gifts.

Te obsequia can be used idiomatically to mean it flatters you.

More common words for flatter are adular and lisonjear.
