OK, I'm sure this might have happened to some of you more than once.
Let's say you're given clothes that you really don't like and you know you won't wear by a relative or a friend.

There are 3 choices

- Tell the person who gave you the present that you'd rather get something else, and request a receipt to exchange it for something else.

- Keep the clothes and maybe only wear them inside the house.

- Give the clothes to charity.

I'm opting more towards the last one. What are your opinions?

I got a rather expensive presnet from my parents that I know I'll never use, but needless to say people's feelings are more important, so I wouldn't ask for a receipt.

At least you know it's the thought that counts.

Two or three. I think asking for reciepts isn't classy at all.


That's just what I thought, and I'd feel deeply embarassed to do something like that.

I feel like such a friggin' liar because my girlfriend's sister gave me a shirt from the Gap (second store I hate the most after Abercrombie), and she asked me if I liked it and I just pretended that I loved it, but I just didn't want to say I didn't like it and hurt her feelings.

As Jessica mentioned before it's the thought that counts and that's the best present of all.

I often use the the things in my house, unless it's something very tight with frilly ribbons ( "grandmaw, you shouldn't have" ). But charity seems like a more selfless option. :P

a total waste of acid.oh i see what you mean now...
back on topic
keep the clothes but only wear them in the givers company so when someone else takes the piss out of the item you can point and say'they brought them' and embaress them.you wont be brought anything shitty again.trust me it works.you dont see me in a crappy cardigan.


isnt innuendo an italian suppository?

im gonna ride the wild wind!

Trauma Center (mine), Zelda (bro's and mine), Red Steel (bro's and mine), Call of Duty 3 (bro's, grrrr I want it), Monkey Ball (bro's and mine), Football (my dad's, lol), and some Marvel Ultimate Alliance game (my bro's). :-D

It's so sweet. I just spent two hours playing Red Steel. I can't wait to crack open Zelda. :-P

And boxing on wii sports, owns!

well we can always set it on fire and if they incarcerate us we can say it was a racist thing and we were doing the traditional NA pow wow for the new season...

i thought it was a good idea.





why pay the visit when the visit is free?

I'd give it to charity, or re-gift it. Don't ask or the receipt, or she'll know what you want it for.
You might want to consider wearing it just one time around her, as well.

Just take it back with out a receipt.

Tell them you got it as a gift and the person who gave it to you lost their receipt.

I'd do that, but the Gap has no clothes for straight guys.
