My brother gives terrible presents. So everything I get from him is regifted.

In Las Vegas we have a parade of T yotas that come by between 4-5am on garbage days.... I just rewrap things I don't want and leave it on the curb next to my garbage for them.

Would it bother you more if the gift you gave was... 1.) Given to someone else. 2.) Sold on eBay 3.) Donated to Goodwill and you bumped into a homeless person wearing it.

I have never re-gifted something from a friend or family member, but every gift card I received from my last employer has been passed along to a relative

Absolutely, and long before doing so got a name. Why keep things that you don't need, like, want or that do not fit?! Either pass it on as a gift or donate the item(s) to a good charity thrift shop.


12/16/11 4:43 pm

Yes, yes a million times yes.  that I don't like never get opened, and then I give them to someone else!


12/16/11 4:21 pm

Yes. I've done it more than once. One time I gave my sister in law (who I don't like) a candleholder that I had bought for myself and used 4 a couple of years but didn't want anymore. It was a cute Party Lite item. I just cleaned it well and found a box, wrapped it and gave it to her. She loved it!

The kisses a friend gave me made my daughter-in-law very happy a week later. If I do chocolate I go for healthy dark. Again win win.

Hell yeah. "oh, remember, tonight is so-and-so's dinner party!" uuuggghhhh. I either sew them a scarf (yay for being crafty) or rummage through my stuff. If I do have time, I'll buy something though. Not totally cheap ;)

i can give my sons teachers a gift worth $20, that i dont want or I can go buy them a $5 gift from the discount store. its usually a win-win situation.

Gals know how to "recycle" (lol)! I don't often regift. If I do, it's only if I need a hostess gift for an acquaintance (never for a good friend). I've bought items for myself, tho, that I have then decided I don't need/want. If I can't return (as w/ eBay or discount sites), I'll use them as gifts.


12/16/11 12:08 pm

No real secret to it. If I get something I don't need I move it on to someone who does.

Yes. Better to regift it to someone who may like it than to clutter up my house.

I don't secretly regift, I blatantly regift.

New and I don't like it?
Moving on!

Fuck yeah. If I'm not going to use it I'm not going to throw it away. Regift, duh

I can't believe the yes percentage isn't higher!


12/16/11 6:42 am

... And not so secretly.


12/16/11 6:40 am

Absolutely. It's win - win. Either regift or donate, no need to keep perfectly good items in a closet.

Nope, I have always been up front. "this was given to me last year and I love it, but I can't really use it. I thought it was perfect for you. Feel free to pass it on if you don't want it."

Nothing wrong with regifting I knit a lot and give my work to friends saying " Hope you like it if not its perfect for regifting."

once, when I received a really nice gift I knew my sister would love but I couldn't use. I would never re-gift unless I knew the gift would be perfect for someone else. they wouldn't appreciate useless crap any more than I do.

I always have good intentions to, but I can't keep stuff long enough to register the next year so I sell on eBay or donate depending on the items


12/16/11 5:04 am

All the time. I'm not cluttering my house with stuff I don't like or won't use.

Women regift a whole LOT. Well then what are all these "Christmas presents" that keep coming up on the bill? Are they for her?
