What to do when your neighbor gives you a Christmas gift?

by Lynn Holcombe
(Hoover, AL)

My neighbor gave us a Christmas gift that she calls Christmas "happies" (to make you happy). I called to thank her for the gifts which were a small poinsettia, a small loaf of poppyseed bread, and an embroidered hand towel. My question is: do I need to give a gift in return?

Hello Lynn,

Please give your neighbor a gift if you wish to do so. You are not obligated to do more than you had planned before receipt of her offerings.
