We’ve all got relatives that seem to be missing the gift giving gene — remember those horrible holiday sweaters and itchy scarves of your childhood?

Though we love the idea of saving the emissions of shipping gifts and then returning them, this idea has the morality police in a huff.

What do you think about Amazon's preemptive return tool?
