If a bride receives two of the same gift she can easily return one of the gifts. She need not mention to the gift giver that she has returned their gift. If a gift is a one of a kind item, a family heirloom or something hand made by the giver, even if a bride dislikes the gift, she should keep it and cherish the thought that went into it. Always consider the feelings of the gift giver. An unsightly one of a kind item kept and stored in the basement should be put on display if the giver ever happens to visit. Sometimes those unsightly, out of fashion gifts come back into fashion too. Out of consideration for the gift giver it is sometimes wise to hang onto a gift and save it for the Antiques Roadshow or a garage sale sometime in the future. Any thoughts of returning gifts should be coupled with diplomacy. Say nothing.
