What If You Don't Have A Gift For Someone Who Gives You One?

One of the most uncomfortable situations during the Christmas gift-giving time is when you don’t have a gift prepared for someone who gives you one. It’s always awkward when it happens, so we want to know: what do you do when someone hands you a gift and you don’t have one for them?

This situation might come up in a wide variety of situations. In some cases, it’s probably not a big deal, say, if a boss or parent gives you a gift.
