Dear [NAME, ex. John Smith],
You have indeed embarrassed me by your present. [COMPLIMENT PRESENT, ex. The painting is nothing short of beautiful]. That is why I truly regret that I cannot accept it.
I have a policy of not accepting expensive gifts from [GROUP, ex. our customers]. Although I would love to keep it, your gracious gift falls under this category. Nonetheless, I sincerely thank you for the thought.
[YOUR NAME, ex. Jill Jones]
