So what do you do with the Christmas gifts you will never use? Recycle, reuse, donate?
Re-gift, (but never back to the original giver, so keep notes).
I regift or donate. I have gently asked not to get anymore 'stuff' each year, but it keeps coming. I like to pick my own knick-knacks, etc.
Good question. I donate them. The givers of these items don't know me very well, I think, but I appreciate the thought. Sometimes I wonder if they are re-gifting them to me. Lol.
I get a lot of re-gifted crap from well-off family members (things they got at the office or purchased at a charity event). That and the free gift they get if they spend $500.00 at Mark Cross sort of thing. I give them away to anyone interested in a canvas bag etc...
If no one wants it, then I donate or yard sale it.
I don't get many if any. I negotiated cash exchanges with some and agreed no gifts with others. Miserable? It works!
I know it sounds lame, but I don't like getting jewelry. I don't like extravagant gifts. I like getting things I really need or enjoy. Like movies or dinners out. Any thing that wasn't working; fixed or replaced. I think big gifts scare me. I feel like big gifts are unnecessary and worry about the future and how an expensive gift will affect our family etc. I am happy with $7 earrings or a gift card to Whole Foods. I would like an i-Pod or something to listen to music on someday though.

When I was a kid, I loved Christmas. I was so excited I could hardly sleep. Now that I have kids I want Christmas to be about family. Not gifts. So we get each daughter one gift and ask that our parents get them one gift as well.Any thoughts on what the right number of gifts...
