Chances are there's a gift (or maybe more) you received over the holidays you really don't want to keep.
A surprising two-thirds of Americans polled by the National Retail Federation said they returned gifts "most" or "some" of the time. With that many people dissatisfied with their holiday haul, how do they navigate the potential problems that may come along with gift exchanges?
The etiquette of returns is "really about being kind, being grateful and being gracious," Emma Johnson of the blog wealthysinglemommy.com, told CNBC's "On the Money" in an interview.
Johnson said a lot of times, you can really return that gift, without hurting anyone's feelings.
"How often has someone said to you, 'Look, if it isn't the right size or the right color, I have the receipt.' Take them up on that offer," Johnson added.
