    When someone comes back from a trip, should you tell them that you don't like their gift?

    no... you should never say that to someone.  Its not the gift it is the thought..

    No.  Simply smile and accept the gift.  That would be very rude to tell them that you don't like their gift.  What do you expect them to do?  Go back to their trip destinations and exchange the gift for something you want?  When someone travels and takes the time to buy you a gift, be grateful that they remembered you.  As a traveler, you have the stress of following a travel schedule.  That person didn't have stop and buy you a gift.  Suck it up.  Be gracious.  Accept the gift as it is--a gift.

    I agree with @davenmidtown completely. Just the fact that someone cared enough to bring you back anything from THEIR trip is a kind and thoughtful gesture and it would come off pretty rude to tell them you don't like it when they have clearly gone out of their way on your behalf.

    no ... it's the thought that counts .. they remembered you while they were having probably one of the best times in their lives ... throw it in the bin if you want to but no need to tell them you didn't like it.
