False Alarm: What Happens to the Gifts When an Event has been Postponed?

Q: I had planned to retire and was given gifts at a recent retirement party. Circumstances now are such that I have postponed my retirement for another year or two. What should I do about the gifts?

A: You might call those who gave you gifts for your retirement and explain to them that it has been postponed and that you aren’t sure what to do about the gift they gave you. Your friends know that you will eventually retire and will most likely tell you to keep the gift and use it in good health.
