That would be the most burning question around the holidays... Are you guilty of re-gifting? Have you ever been a victim of bad re-gifting? First of all, I really (and I mean really) encourage my friends and family NOT to give me anything for Christmas, Bdays, etc... So far it's been working!!! How do I handle this problem? presents that I (or my kids) did not like or did not find to be useful, I usually donate charities like The Marines Corps Toys for Tots. And I absolutely have to give some presents to teachers, the bus driver, etc... I usually try to find a gift that is universal and ANYBODY would find it hard to give up - like movie theatre certificates... who's be so stupid to re-gift those???!!!

I'm a fan of re-gifting. My mom told me she sent me one. A $50 Victoria Secret gift cert. I'll take that any day. I loved it and it cost her nothing. My mom's not a V.S shopper.

I cant say that I've EVER done that. I suppose its ok with generic gifts like a candle set or something you take to an office party. But regifting amongst good friends and family totally unacceptable. Besides if I dont like something I just give it away not make it into a present. That is cheap and classless.

I remember a show on Oprah about just this subject. I believe the general consensus was it's not great etiquette to regift. Last Christmas at my brother's place, his friend/dog sitter (Alison) gave him back an unusual tea set he had given her several years earlier. The look on his face as he recognized it was priceless! lol! Later in the kitchen we both had a good chuckle about this as I too remembered he'd given it to her. She's an elderly lady in her 80's so maybe she just had a senior moment! He later asked me whether I'd like it and I said yes it was lovely. With my sick sense of humour I jokingly told him, hey I'll give it back to Alison next year! He said don't you dare! LOL!


What is love? Love is feeling comfortable and safe with someone but still getting weak knees when they walk into a room and smile at you. :)
