I’ve provide links to the retailer return policy pages below. The description is a summary of their holiday return policy.
Amazon: Anything bought between Nov 1 and Dec 31 2010 can be returned until Jan 31, 2011.

Barnes & Noble: Anything bought between Nov 15 and Dec 31 will be accepted until Jan 31.
Best Buy: Deadline of Jan 31 for most items bought after Nov 1. Computers have a 14-day limit. For anything purchased after Dec 18, Best Buy is waiving its standard restocking fee.
Dell: 21 days. Before returning something purchased online from them, contact customer service for a return authorization first, or you won't get any credit or your item back.

Lowe's: 90 days for most items with a receipt. Without a receipt, in-store credit only.
Macy's: No deadline with a receipt, except for jewelry, which has a 30 day limit.  Macy's puts a special sticker on many items so you may not need a receipt.
Pottery Barn: Their return policy for gift items purchased between October 15 and December 24, 2010 has been tweaked. If you or a recipient are dissatisfied with a gift item purchased during this time, it can be returned by January 31, 2011, for a refund of the merchandise value.

Staples: Any electronic and furniture products, which usually fall within the 14–day return policy, purchased between 11/26/10 and 12/24/10 may be returned until 1/8/11 or as regular policy allows, whichever is later.
Target: You have 90 days to make a return. You can make exchanges without a receipt, as long as you don't do this for over $70 worth of stuff in the past year.  A 15% restocking fee on camcorders, digital cameras and portable electronics.
