- Hi <Name>, I hope you’ve enjoyed <item loaned>.
- Would you bring it along with you the next time we see each other?
- I’m a little sentimental/nostalgic about it.
- I have another friend who would like to borrow it.
- I would like to have it back.
- Hey there, I’m starting to feel a little bit like a broken record here… can you put us both out of my misery and give me my <item> back?
- I’d appreciate it if you could bring my <item> back.
