How to return unwanted gifts
Returns can come at a cost
Restocking fees have become a sore point for shoppers. It typically applies to electronics that have been removed from the packaging, which can cost you around 15 percent of the original purchase price. So for a $200 digital camera, the restocking fee might be $30. But it can be worse. So unless the delight you express on Christmas morning over that gift is sincere, don't open the package.
