The Re-gifting Thread

'Tis the season and that means double up gifts, crap gifts, gifts you dislike and even good gifts you could exchange for something you really like.

I personally don’t re-gift (even double ups - particularly for kids) but my wife loves a good re-gift so it is a contentious topic in our household.

How do folks here deal gifts you don’t want, you wouldn’t use or you already have?

Donation. Not worth the effort to return, regift or sell.


Once I started to assign value to my time, returns hardly ever make sense. I haven’t returned an item in about a decade. Part of that might be me being an informed customer and researching even 20 dollar purchases. I also just don’t buy much new these days either.
