This looks familiar... maybe I moderated it. Anyway, it's the thought that counts. Apologize for insulting the gift, and tell him you'll treasure it because he gave it to you, even if you don't like it too much. I'm sure that'll make him forgive you.
I agree with #1, but if you want to REALLY save your butt, you can lie and say that the only reason you said that was because you didn't think he could afford something like that and you didn't want him to feel bad? Though I don't always condone lying, I think that could help.
It's not the thought that counts, a homeless man could give me an empty can and think its the best gift in the world but to me it's just trash. People who repeatedly quote things like "it's the thought that counts" are ridiculous socialists. This commercial was on tonight, I had similar thoughts as you did OP. Though, it was kind of intriguing how they fit the whole lords praying in such a small sized area. #2 - The crappy necklace was only 40 bucks. Not much to go on there.
