Accepting a gift from a kaafir on the day of his festival

Mufti : Muhammad Salih Al-Munajjid

My neighbour is an American Christian, and she and her family brought me a gift when it was Christmas. I could not refuse the gift, lest she be offended.
Can I accept this gift, as the Messenger (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) accepted gifts from kaafirs?.
