The Rules Of Regifting

Mar 7, 2008
One of the best parts when it comes to holidays and different celebrations, such as a birthday, is the part where we give and receive gifts.

We all love the surprise that is given by making a gift whether it is because of the joy that someone you love has or because you just received the present that you wanted.

There are however, some unpleasant aspects of gift giving that are very difficult to avoid. Besides the difficulties that anyone encounters when it comes to what to purchase to offer the greatest gift, there are also less happy moments when you receive something that you don't like or something that simply doesn't help you.

When it comes to such situations it is better for you to know how to get that certain gift away in the best possible manner. Instead of throwing it away or use it when the person who gave it to you comes to visit, better regift the things that you don't like.

Reading this article will surely help you whether you are just curious about regifting or you want to apply this method in the best way possible. Don't think that people don't usually do this; actually is one of the most often things that anyone does when people receive something they don't like.

The one thing that you have to keep in mind is that regifting is the best thing to do just as long as you do it in the proper manner, so you can avoid public
humiliation. First of all, you don't necessary have to mention to the person you give that thing that you don't like it; in most of the cases it is better not to do this way. Also, don't leave the gift as you received it. Besides removing the gift card, you should also rewrap the gift as it surely doesn't look better once you have opened it.

Sometimes people make this mistake but keep in mind that you can only do that as long as you also offer a gift bought specially for that person. Also, note who gave you something that you plan to regift as giving to someone who initially offered that thing to you is surely not the best gesture to do.

There are some more items that should not be regifted besides the ones that you have already used, such as candles, obscure jewelry or random books. Champagne on the other hand is a great thing for regifting.

If you really want to avoid regifting things then you can also sell your gifts on eBay. However, you will find that regifting things that you don't like or that you don't use is not that hard if you do it in a gallant way. It can be a fun thing to do as long as you think about the person who gets to receive the item.
