Next Year Return Misfit Gifts Before Receiving Them

UPDATE: "Next year, why not spare loved ones the trouble of returning gifts, and give cash instead?" Read The New York Times, The Best Present Money Can Buy.

Don't want that 'Thread and Bobbin Sewing Kit' from Aunt Mildred. In the future you may never receive it if she bought it at Amazon. Read the Washington Post, Amazon patents procedure to let recipients avoid undesirable gifts.

Is it rude, tacky but necessary, or a great idea for the gift giver and receiver. Vote in the Washington Post poll: What do you think of Amazon's plan?
