Not Saying Thank You is The Worst Thing Which you Can do If You are an Unhappy Gift Recipient

The study showed that lack of this gratitude would harm the future of the relationship. Even a false smile was ok.

When participants were asked what the recipient should do they responded:

 “She could’ve done what the entire family does when opening gifts – acted disgustingly gracious and then forget about it,” said one participant.
