Do you think it's tacky to leave the price tag on a gift?

even if the person is too young to read the parents can, do you think it's tacky? I I do it's kinda like bragging about how much you spend on the gift. I dunno what do you think? and it's not for in case you want to return it because they have gift receipts for that

  • Yes that is tacky. If you are leaving the tag for a return you at least tear the part with the price on it. I understand when the gift is from someone like my grandma because she forgets a lot of stuff but to me its a slap in the face on how they can spend so much money and I cant spend that much.

  • It's a gift. I would just be thankful for it no matter how much it costs.

  • No, I always hate when people remove the tags... What if I want to return it? What if I don't like it? What if the kids don't like it or it doesn't fit? I NEVER take the tags off because more and more places won't even take the stuff back if the actual dollar part of the tag is missing... I know with Macy's we were told if the entire tag wasn't there (even if the bar code was) we couldn't accept it... I would prefer to make sure they have the option of returning.

  • Yes, it's tacky. If it's a question of returnability the buyer can ask for a gift receipt.

  • It depends I guess... if its for my kids it doesnt matter... if its a girft for a wedding or something yes I just get a gift receipt

  • i prefer price.. i dont like people spending to much, gifts arent that important to me or my kids we prefer the friendship and love. ya i sound crazy but its true.. also like clothes, i get so mad when people take the price off the tag because if its the wrong size most stores wont take it back or exchange since the tag is destroyed

  • I've never given it any thought. If a person leaves the tag on, it does make it easier if you want to exchange the gift, but honestly, I would never thought anything about it either way.

  • It sure makes it a lot easier to return or exchange the gift if you need to. Anyway I don't find it tacky- but then I haven't seen very many gifts in my day with a high price tag so to me it didn't feel like bragging- just that they were being considerate.

  • I always leave it on. B/c what if they want to return it. I have worked several retail jobs where we could not take returns unless the price tag was on it. :)
