The Art of Re-Gifting

There is nothing quite as frustrating as waiting all year for the glorious day St. Nick chooses to traverse down your chimney only to have your patience rewarded with a classic ugly sweater or game you already have.

In these cases, once the want to be naughty to rebel against all the good you did to be on the jolly guys good side, the first word that pops into my mind is one not positively muttered, re-gift.

While this next statement may get me in trouble with mother figures everywhere, there is generally nothing wrong with the act of re-gifting.  I personally would much rather see a present go towards a positive use instead of on a shelf in the basement, which is occasionally the case.

However, if you are to re-gift be careful and remember these two tips.  Make sure that you memorize what gift came from whom and avoid re-gifting to someone in the original gift-givers friend circle.  That will only result in a messy case of “re-gift discovery” a problem you should avoid at all costs!

Secondly, be creative with your re-gift.  Use it as a gag gift, give it to a friend out-of-state, or even contemplate selling it on a marketplace with other items like yours, like Pricefalls!

Until next time buyers, seller and friends!
