Gift Etiquette 101—How to Accept Graciously.



Since our 2009 treasure chest palette is sold out at Sephora, we’ve decided to run a contest on our Facebook page for a chance to win this gem of a palette. That said our fans are leaving comments that have me rolling on the floor laughing. Why, you ask? Well, to enter you must share the worst gift you’ve ever received & in return we’ll give one of you a gift you want! From hot dog pokers to a wheel of baby Gouda cheese, this really got me thinking. How do you react to such silly and ridiculous presents? How do you hold-up a true poker face while un-wrapping a terrible gift?!

When accepting a gift it’s always important to remain thankful. In this awkward moment try your best to uphold your manners—no glimpse of shock or horror. Stay classy. After asking around for some tips from some true masters of animated appreciation I have narrowed it down to 3 easy steps:

Step 1: Know your audience. Show your appreciation and make it look real, even if you feel your taste is way better.

Step 2: The wrong expression can hurt the feelings of the giver. Although you can’t seem to come to any conclusion as to why they bought this for you, give them the benefit of the doubt (they bought this picturing your excitement). So be just that, surprised and excited.

Step 3: Always smile & always say thank you. Even ask where they got such a “unique & thoughtful” gift (in your head you can picture yourself at the return counter).

Now, I know these may be easier said than done. Just remember, it’s the season of generosity—it can always be worse.

Xo,
Kristin
