Another Fruitcake? Take a Break from Holiday Returns Stress

photo for returns blog post 12 26 12.jpeg It has happened to all of us. The gift you never saw coming and would never use. Mine was a Thighmaster (Yes. THAT Thighmaster!) A well intentioned aunt (to remain anonymous) wrapped and shipped what she thought was the perfect holiday gift for yours truly. I unwrapped the paper, opened the box and wow, if that was what she thought was the right gift for me, perhaps I should lay off the Christmas cookies! She meant well, but one look and I knew this gift was one that would never leave the box (along with the roasting pan my grandmother gave my cooking “challenged” wife the year before). So I did what a lot of us now do – I returned that unwanted item.
