    If they specifically request it, why not, but it is up to you.

    Usually not, but, like Tal said, if they request to have it returned (maybe it's a family heirloom), yes.

    Agreed, seldom,

    If it was very high dollar and they asked for it back, but then still up to you, normally no

    A gift is a gift. Once given it belongs to the person it was gifted to. It would be nice to return a gift that meant something to the giver, but legally you don't have to.
