What To Do With Gifts You Don't Like?

From time to time, we’ll all end up receiving a gift we don’t want or don’t like. It’s inevitable! However, knowing what to do with gifts you don’t want isn’t always easy. 

If you’re asking “how do I get rid of gifts I don’t want,” the good news is that it needn’t be as difficult as you think. 

Here, we give you a few ideas about how to deal with unwanted gifts so you can move on with your life and hopefully get something you really do want instead!

 

How Do I Refuse A Gift?

If you’re wondering how you can tell someone you don’t want their gift when they’ve presented it to you, you should probably think again before doing so.

Although accepting the gift from someone you don’t like, or showing gratitude for a present that is just awful can be difficult, it’s polite to abide by standard etiquette, at least at the moment of giving and receiving gifts. 

If you’re receiving a gift from someone you don’t like, you shouldn’t show your distaste. You might want to know how to decline a gift from someone you don’t like, but in reality that would be rude, embarrassing and potentially awkward for everyone else in the room. 

Remember that you often have to buy gifts for people you don’t like yourself and you would be very upset and angry if you were giving a gift to someone you don’t like and they declined it or refused to accept. 

No matter how much you dislike the giver, it’s relatively easy to smile, say a simple thank you, and move on. 

 

What Do I Do If A Gift Is Bad?

On the other hand, if the gift itself is terrible, you may be wondering how to say thank you for a bad gift. 

The answer is simple. Just say thank you. The giver may not be aware that the gift is a bad one and you could offend them badly by saying anything untoward. Be polite in the moment and later you can get rid of it. 

 

How Do I Get Rid Of Unwanted Gifts? 

If you’re wondering what to do with the clothes you don’t want that you’ve received as a gift, or even what to do with gift cards you don’t want, you have a few options. 

You could regift the same item to someone else (obviously not the original giver) when their birthday comes around, or gifts can be taken back to the store, especially if the labels are still on it (depending on the store’s policy), and you can choose a different item instead.

 If you’re wondering what to do with an expensive gift you don’t want, it could be best to try selling it on. That way, you can use the money to buy an item that’s better suited to you. 

 

What to do if you hate the gift?

Even if you hate a gift, you should always be polite and say thank you. 

 

How do graciously refuse gift?

The best way to graciously refuse gifts is to say in advance that no gifts are required. If someone has already bought you a gift, it’s polite to accept it anyway. 

 

What to do when someone gets a gift you don’t like?

On receiving the gift, you should be polite and show gratitude. Later, you can try taking it back, selling it on, or gifting it to someone else. 

 

What to do when you get a gift you don’t like?

If you get a gift you don’t like, you should still thank the giver politely. Afterwards, you can give it away as a gift to someone else, sell it, return it, or exchange it. 

 

What to say when you get a bad gift?

Even if the gift you’ve received is bad, the giver may not know this. You should, therefore, always be polite and say thank you.
