Is it rude to give a gift back?
Yes it is rude to return a gift to the giver. It is extremely hurtful. It is also rude to ask for a receipt so you can take a gift back to the store it was purchased at to get the money. Remember, you can re-gift,(give to someone else) but you can’t un-gift(take back).

Can I return an item for someone else?
However, either way, you should always try to keep receipts, especially if you buy something as a gift for someone else.
