R'n'B hunk Eric Benet was missing his wife HALLE BERRY so much while she was away filming in Montreal, Canada, he sent her a special forget-me-not gift.

Benet recently purchased a leather and sterling silver JEANNE PAYER bracelet for Berry, who's currently filming the thriller GOTHIKA with ROBERT DOWNEY JR and Penelope Cruz.

Inscribed on the plate is a special poem about appreciating each day - and a pal says OSCAR-winning actress Berry has hardly taken the bracelet off since receiving it.

The source says, "She really loves the thoughtful gift."

But Benet's visit to his wife came earlier than anticipated - he flew up to spend time with her after she broke her right arm on 14 May (03).
