Ask yourself a few simple questions to decide if your knitted item needs to be blocked: 1) Are there spots or marks that need to be washed out? 2) Does your item have a pattern or texture (like lace) that needs to be opened up? 3) Does your item have edges that are rolling? 4) Will you be joining pieces together after blocking that need to match up? If your answer to any of these questions is "yes" then I would block your item. If the answers to all these questions are "no", and your item fits fine, then you don't have to block your item if you don't want to.
