Hadith no 2255 (below) is a repeat. Read it here.
Volume 3, Book 47, Number 757:
Narrated Al-Miswar bin Makhrama and Marwan (radiallaahu `anhumaa):
When the delegates of the tribe of Hawazin came to the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) he stood up amongst the people, Glorified and Praised Allah as He deserved, and said, “Then after: Your brethren have come to you with repentance and I see it logical to return to them their captives; so whoever amongst you likes to do that as a favor, then he can do it, and whoever of you like to stick to his share till we give him his right from the very first Fai (war booty) which Allah will bestow on us, then (he can do so).” The people replied, “We do that (to return the captives) willingly as a favor for your sake.”
Volume 3, Book 47, Number 758:
Narrated ‘Aisha (radiallaahu `anhaa):
Allah’s Apostles (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) used to accept gifts and used to give something in return.
So now you know the title doesn’t mean returning gifts, but rather giving gifts in return. Returning someone’s gift back to them would be very rude, of course.
Exchanging gifts increases love between people, so why not do it often? :)
Volume 3, Book 47, Number 756:
Narrated ‘Azra bin Thabit Al-Ansari:
When I went to Thumama bin ‘Abdullah, he gave me some perfume and said that Anas (radiallaahu `anhu) would not reject the gifts of perfume. Anas (radiallaahu `anhu) said: The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) used not to reject the gifts of perfume.
As far as I’m concerned, this Sunnah is so easy to follow! I’m lovin’ it! :D
P.S. Who else is looking forward to Eid – and whatever else comes with it? ;)
