I rotate things all the time.  So if someone notices I'm not displaying their gift, I just tell the truth:  I rotate.

I have received several gifts from my 2 best friends (we exchange birthdays and Christmas).  Some of the gifts are for the house (candle holder, knick knacks, figurines, etc).  They are nice and I honestly like them and love the people who gave them.  My question is how long must i display them?  I hate to put them away, but I bought other things I want to display  Is a year long enough?

I think you are entitled to display house decor gift items for as long as you choose.  It is your home. 
Friends and family have good intentions when giving decor pieces as gifts, but that shouldn't obligate you to have to display them.
Sounds like your friends have tastes similar to yours.  You said you like the pieces and love the givers so that works out nicely for you to proudly display the items. 
Sometimes, however, as in the case with my parents whenever they received something from one of us kids (adult), Mom felt obligated to display it forever even if it made her house look cluttered or she didn't like it.

I like the suggestions presented in the thread so far that suggest rotating items on display with seasons or even changing locations.
