Ever have to return Christmas gifts after Christmas?
« on: December 31, 2011, 01:23:37 pm »
?  I thought I was a very simple person and made it obvious over what I actually like.  I guess nothing is ever obvious.  Well I made a list because I was so tired of either being disappointed or getting something I already had.  This year I asked for an expansion pack to a computer game I already had.  My younger brother comes over every Christmas eve so he can spend Christmas with his inlaws so his presents are always opened on Christmas eve.  When I opened his present it was the game I already had.  My younger brother told me mom had told him to get that game and that he actually saw it when talking to me once but thought mom told him to get it.  My father said that the game I wanted was an expansion pack and he didn’t know whether I had the original or not.  I replied, “but I did.  that’s why I asked for the expansion pack.”  I told my mother to stay with the list I gave. So of course even with a list I wound up back on the gift exchange line two days after Christmas just like the zillion other people that had to exchange a gift.

yes, my grandparents gave me and my siblings these rc cars, but we had already kind of grown past that stage.

I hate to return gifts no matter if its Christmas or another occasion but sometimes you just have to!! I try to get the same item but in the right size or the same type of gift that the person picked out!!

I've never had to return anything I've bought for or during Christmas season.

i think i've only returned one or two things to the
store over the years, only because of a wrong size.
if i don't like something, i usually re-gift it on down
the road or give it to goodwill.

I have had to take clothes back and exchange them because they were the wrong size.  I have never truly returned any gift that I have gotten on christmas.  I would feel a little wierd doing that sort of thing.

If you tell people what to get for you and return things it sounds like petty holiday to me. My EX-sister-in-law is someone that returns every single thing she ever gets including from her husband. Some people are just materialistic jerks that way.

I've had to return things. I don't like returning gifts, because of the huge lines right after Christmas. I to have made a list to be clear of exactly what I want. However, every year I always end up getting some stupid gadget that I would never ever use. Sometimes, I rather people just to give me money or a gift card.
