The Gift That Keeps On Giving
How many times have you gotten a gift and thought "what the hell am I going to do with this?". Maybe it's from a favorite relative and you just can't bring yourself to return it, so you stick it in a closet until it's time to pass the gift on to someone else. If you do this, you are not alone; it's called regifting and we've all done it at one time or another. Now, there's a website totally dedicated to regifting, complete with horror stories and the dos and don'ts of it. For instance, when you regift, make sure you re-wrap the gift as you would any new gift to remove any personal notes that were intended for you and keep track of your gifts to you don't re-gift to the original gifter. Another tip: if you're not sure what to do with that gift and you can't return it and don't want to regift, store the gifts and donate them for raffle prizes to your church or PTA. They won't care that it was something you never wanted in the first place and you will have the satisfaction of knowing that your gift helped raise money for a good cause. I have a saki set which I intend to use for a raffle prize and I NEVER drink saki.....at least not at home. For more information about regifting, just go to Regift.com .
