Cool "Regifting"......?

Ok with the Holidays approaching I am curious if anyone will admit they ever got a gift and later "regifted" to someone else.......

I will admit I have. I can only remember twice ever doing this and the regifts went to co-workers........

Anyone else ever done it, or am I the only one guilty of this?.......

I have a very funny re-gift story. A coworker of mine brought in this beautifully elaborate wrapped giant fortune cookie for his secretary. He went on and on about how it was gourmet, yada yada yada. So she opened it to share the super expensive gourmet fortune cookie with everyone and inside was a "fortune" from the original gifter to my coworker! It was SO funny and I think my coworker learned a big lesson about regifting. haha

I have done it a few times. Theres things my family buys for me that I have no use for or do not like and despite telling them this several times they buy it anyway because "they" like it. So I re gift it to someone else the next year.

This year, I feel a bit guilty but oh well. Last year I got a free blue tooth kit from my wireless provider. It was valued at $60 as I checked. I have no use for it. I opened the package, made sure none of my information was on it or in any of the papers inside and its been sitting down here for a while. Dug it up the other day because my sister mentioned she wanted one for her phone so I charged the unit, and stuck it into a box with a few prank items and wrapped it (were all about pranking at least one person every year this year its my turn so I chose her).

I had no use for it, she has no clue I have it nor does she know I got it free. Besides, its the thought that counts

I'm not a re-gifter, just wouldn't feel right to me. I do however have no issue giving away gifts that were given to me that I'll never use--just won't do it under the guise that it's a gift.

I don't think I've ever regifted something. I like to feel good about the gifts I give. If I received a stupid gift, I wouldn't turn around and give to someone else as a gift. I usually donate things like that.

Our parents and students are wonderful about gifting us with presents, but you can only use so many notepads.
After I write the thank you notes, I sort through and pick a few items that may be appropriate for my daughter (lotions that don't agree with my allergies, Vera Bradley bags, snowmen ornaments, etc). The rest goes to a couple of wire baskets in the garage. I always stick a note on who it is from, so I have never erred in giving it back to the giver or even in front of them.

If I have received an item I really dont care for or can use I will donate the item for fund raiser like silent auctions. I am not about re-gifting an item tho.

I re gifted a gift from my Mother in Law back to my Mother in Law the next year. I did it intentionally and it worked. She gave me her favorite bath stuff because she likes it so much and thought I would too. I have very sensitive skin and couldn't use it but did not want to hurt her feelings. So I knew she would love it and she did. Of course I gave her lots of other stuff also.

I don't re-gift but I do give things away that I don't want/need.. Just not as a gift.
