I keep them.  Gifts from my family are usually well thought out and given with the receiver in mind.  Our family are not "last minute grab anything" shoppers, thankfully.

Keep them of coarse and use them wisely and usefully!! Y would you give gifts away to somebody. Personally i myself would NEVER EVER DO THAT. THAT IS NOT RIGHT. SOMEBODY GIVE YOU A PRESENT AND YOU GIVE IT AWAY!! NO, YOU SHOULD KEEP THEM IF THEY WOULD LAST LONG KEEP IT SOMEWHERE NOBODY WOULD TOUCH IT OR SEE IT!!!!

I very seldom return my presents.  I would never return anything my kids give me and I usually write a list and get what I wanted.  I am not picky so I make use no matter what I get.

If usable, and I like them, I will use or wear them, and if I don't like them, then, they just lay around. Lol I hate kitchen gadgets, so my ex husbands mother got them for me every year.

I keep every single one, as it was a gift from someone who loves me, and no matter how great its the thought that counts whether the gift was something i would have chosen for myself or not :) x

I haven't gotten one in years, mostly because we can't afford gifts, so we just have a meal with the rest of the family...

I will probably sell them on e-Bay or Craigs List to raise money for more pumpkin pie. I LOVE a good pumpkin pie.

It depends honestly. I usually keep them, but if it's something I can't use/don't need and it turns into clutter, I'll either give it to charity or simply exchange it -- which is actually an option that I'm given upfront if I would rather not keep it. I grew out of the need for Christmas presents though, now all I want to do is "give."

I have to open the gifts first to find out what's located inside. If the gift was a book of horror or romance, then I have to keep it. If it was something that boys are interested in, I must give them to my friend. At last, if it was something else, then I should send them to the charity shop, or re-gift them to one of my parents, or to my French and English professors.

Most likely I would give them to others as presents or for the poor.  Christmas is giving, and I do not expect gifts.  I have been given a second chance at life and that is my present.

Generally I keep them. Occasionally, after several months, I may give it to a charity shop so that someone else gets some pleasure or use out of the item and it helps a good cause.

Used them at least one's especially in front of the person who gave it to me, that's the way I do show my appreciation of that one person for taking time and spending money to gave me that one present.

What to I tend to do with Christmas presents that I receive?
  1. Thank the person that gave me the gift.
  2. If the gift is from one of my children I keep it. I may not use it but I keep everything that my children have ever given me. You should see my closet.
  3. If the gift is something that someone else has given me, I will use it if possible. If I can't use the gift I donate it to the DAV(Disabled American Veterans).

Well most of the gifts I receive I keep and use. I don't think I can recall a time when I have re-gifted or took back a Christmas gift that was given to me. I thank that it's the thought that counts and so I tend to keep the gifts that are given to me rather if I like them or not.

First, I think it's important to thank the person who gives me a present.  If I get something that I like, I use it, and am very thankful that the person who bought it for me, took the time to think about what I would like.  

If I get something that doesn't work for me, wrong style/size/color, etc., I either exchange it for something else, or I give it to someone else who hopefully can use it.

Normally I keep them, but if I really really hate the gift I will re-gift it to someone who will (I hope) appreciate it a little more then I do.

I have to wait to see what I receive. Then I will decide who can benefit more from the gift then me and go calling.It is more rewarding to give then to receive.

I would probably keep them, unless I really hate it- then the gift has a good chance of ending up in a charity shop somewhere!
