Was it a Snuggie? A Chia pet? A monogrammed pink bunny suit? On the day after Christmas, what’s the etiquette of returning gifts, and of everything post-Christmas? Can you re-gift it? A recent Canadian poll found that 75 percent of people may hold on to their unwanted holiday gifts this season, even though the idea of re-gifting polls as being increasingly acceptable.

Advice goddess Amy Alkon joins Patt to answer all your questions, big and small, about holiday gift etiquette.
