    Okay, the holiday season is upon us. Do you give away stuff you have received over the course of the year? I found myself combing through my closets for misc. gifts that I have received but have never even opened them because I didn't want them and was too lazy to take them back for store credit. So, I'll probably "re-gift" around 5 items this year. [​IMG]

    Absolutely. Especially when DVD SEs appear that my relatives have no idea about...

    So, I'm not the only one giving away Almost Famous this year. [​IMG] I'm not much of a re-gifter, but I do tend to return quite a few gifts.

    I've never re-gifted.

    Something weird about me and I actually like shopping for others...

    I did once.My inlaws always gave me crap gifts,shaving sets etc,not even electric,just the ones you can grab on the impulse shelf by the check out.

    So one year I gave a shaving set to my grandfather.We were/are not close at all and I had forgotten to get him a give.He seemed very pleased with it.

    I'll regift for relatives who have me stumped for a purchase. I was going to buy an uncle a DVD when a friend of mine got me a duplicate Monty Python and the Holy Grail DVD for my birthday. So instead of buying him Rush Hour 2 or whatever, I just rewrapped the still-sealed Holy Grail.

    Ideally, I'd prefer to neither purchase nor receive gifts, though.

    I just realized why I do a lot of re-gifting: My birthday is a week before Christmas, so I find myself with some gifts that just don't do it for me, and thus, find their way towards others. [​IMG]

    What's bad when you get stuff that even you would feel bad "re-gifting". [​IMG]

    I never regift... I enjoy finding that right something special for those I get gifts for... If I get something I absolutetly don't want or would enjoy, goodwill seems to work for those items.
