Should you always accept a gift no matter what?

One time in my AA class a girl brought a present for the counseler. It was before we left on Christmas break. As soon as class started she told everyone that this girl had got her a present. She opened it and it was a santa hat. She then said "this is a nice gift but im sorry i dont celebrate Christmas so im just going let you hold on to this" and she gave the present back

So do you think someone shoild accept a gift no matter what?

  • You should accept gifts most of the time but it might have been ILLEGAL for her to accept a gift from one of her clients. She might have been worried about getting fired from her job.

    • But why open it in the first place lol thats like if took off your clothes like if we are about to have sex an then saying "oh thats nice but im waiting until marriage"

    • She probably wanted to reward the person who bought her the gift by giving the person social recognition and acclaim for what they did. She did not want to feel like they went through all that effort for nothing.

  • I think it's better to just accept the gift. It's a nice gesture to give someone a present and the thought behind it should count for something.

  • She shouldn't have said "I'll let you hold on to this" that was not nice. Yes you should just accept it. Later on you can give it to someone else.

  • If it was from a child, I'd say yes but an adult? No. If you don't celebrate or won't use it then its a waste of someone's money. I'd rather them get it back or give it to someone who will use it.
