Very good writing. I could hardly wait to see the gift. A great big "ooops".
It's called 're-gifting' & in our present economy, makes a lot of sense, altho' I do understand the embarrassment of the tell-tale card left inside. Nicely told story.

Such a clever oops. One hates to think how often it may have happened.

Kudos to Kelly for her discretion! If this is your worst humiliation, you are doing well. :-) You told the story beautifully, so that the reader not only laughs, but sees himself--and learns a lesson. Well done!
You kept me in the story from beginning to the oops at the end. Great job!

Did not see that coming! It was a great tale. The only thing I would suggest is for the first paragraph to have a little more oomph to keep the reader engaged.
Oh my! A great story that could have happened to a lot of re-gifters. Love it.

I agree with one of the commenters that the beginning needs a little more oomph. I definitely could feel for narrator, but I am still wondering about the title.
