I'm curious to know what you all think about regifting.My mom has a friend who always did this,she would take gifts she got that she didn't like and regift to someone else and act like she bought it for them. I personally think it's horrible that a person could pass off a gift as their own and act like they purchased the gift themselves,I think it's really TACKY.

Regifting is a little tacky on Dec 16, 2015 @ 06:15 pm

Yeah I don't think it is the nicest thing to do. Usually if I get gifts that I don't care for or that I don't use I put them away for prizes if we play bingo with friends or I keep them for a hostess gift if I am invited out last minute.

I don't like to regift, but it depends. If it's someone you don't know very well or a secret santa, I think it's ok. But with a personal gift from someone close it's quite hurtful.

I think it's better to regift to someone who would make use of the gift rather than letting it sit around unused. I would never intentionally hurt someone's feelings but I also would want someone to regift an item I gave them if they had no use for it personally. Then again, I try my very best to try to give gifts that are meaningful to the person reciving the gift.

When I receive a gift that I can not use or have more than one of, I donate it to a Christmas charity so that I makes someone else's Christmas better and has no guilt attached.

Donating the gift seems like a good idea and I think if you actually told someone that it was a gift you got but didn't need, and you thought someone else could benefit from it that would be different

I'm totally okay with re-gifting, as long as it isn't a personal gift. If I think someone could use/enjoy it more, I'll give it to them.

I don't like re-gifting. It's hurtful and rude. I have an aunt who always re-gifts, everything.
