Is it okay for me to tell someone that I do not want a Christmas gift from them? Every year this person gives me a gift card. I try to use it later & find out it has a zero balance on it, it has expired, or something else is wrong with the card and I cannot use it. I don't want to make an issue out of it, so how should I just tell her I no longer want any Christmas gifts? Would it be okay to say "don't feel obligated to get me anything this year"? And if she gives me a gift anyway, would it be terribly rude for me to just hand it back to her? I really do not want these anymore.
