Should you wrap up a receipt with that gift?
Dear Answer Angel Ellen: When giving a present, is it tacky to include a gift receipt, or is it thoughtful? What if you bought the present supercheap at some cheapo store, and you want the recipient to think you paid full price or at least shopped at a full-price store? What if someone gives you something, and you want to ask for a gift receipt to return it? Is that too tacky? What if someone asks you where you got it, and it was some bargain place, and you don't want the person to know, but if you lie and it's returned to Macy's, say, you will be found out?
