About Re-Gifting

By | Dec 5, 2012

3 Dos and 3 Don’ts about regifting.


1) Think before regifting. We all get those gifts that we just don’t need or want. If we know of someone who may appreciate it, Why not?

2) Remember some re-gifting can be funny. In some ways the old joke about there only being two fruitcakes is true. And if it’s a running joke among friends and family, it can be fun.

3) Consider selling old gifts on eBay and not give as presents.


1) Re-gift used items. That’s just tacky at best.

2) Re-gift an item that is no longer in production or labeled from a store that is no longer in business. It’s not new if the store has been out of business and it’s been in a closet for 6 years,

3) Forget who gave you the gift. You don’t want to make the mistake of re-gifting an item to the person who gave it to you. You may not remember the vase that Aunt Joy gave to you, but she may remember exactly when, if it’s back in her hands.
