Tis the holiday season! Pumpkin spice and peppermint mochas are in the air and the spirit of gift giving is getting ready to fall upon us. Everyone has been out buying gifts for Christmas for their loved ones. I love to give gifts but as much as I love gifting, I love receiving them. However, what if it's a gift that you don't really like.
So here is the scenario: Imagine getting a gift from a friend and she is super excited about seeing your expression the moment you open it. You open the gift and it is absolutely DREADFUL.
Some people say that it is the thought that counts when people give gifts but are you allowed to not like the thoughts that were counted?! Is there a such a way to tell a loved one you do not like their gift that they may have worked very hard to get for you?
Well, here are some ideas. The best way to accept a gift that you are not fond of is to not be overly excited about the gift. Tell your loved one you appreciate the gift. You can always regift it to someone else who the gift may suit. Another way to accept a gift you may not like is to return it to the store they have gotten it from. You may be able to exchange it for a gift you really like.
I would never say "I just don't your gift" because I feel like I am too nice and I don't like hurting anyone's feelings. What would you do?
