Is there any holiday gift you received that you would like to re-gift?
For awhile my son-in-laws kept re-gifting a 'Christmas sweater' one had received from his grandmother. Of course, it was handmade, and a bright color with a perky design on the front. They are both big men and the thought of wearing it was too much for the receiver. They spent many holidays cleverly passing the sweater back and forth in disguised packages.
What about you? Any re-gifts?
I did receive a cup with tea packets that are not my type. It was a nice gesture, but unnecessary from the person I received it. I will probably regift or donate to goodwill.
I don't really have an answer to this question, so much as...I wanted to comment on the original paragraph.
I'm imagining two full-grown men:
First Guy: Oh hey, here's your Christmas present.
Second Guy: Dude, tell me this isn't what I think it is.
First Guy: No, no. Of course not.
Second Guy: *opens the SAME sweater from FIVE YEARS AGO* Arrrrgh!!
Oh, well I got this lamp from a friend that is....hideous. Never gave it away. Eventually another friend wanted it, so he just took it. Wasn't really gift-wrapped or anything.
Ay-you are so funny and SO right on with the scenario. Imagine them actually wrestling around trying to get it put on the other guy! ha ha.
I just regifted part of a gift at work yesterday. Like many women, alot of my friends and family buy those bath gift sets with shower gel, lotion, bubble bath, and so on but I never use all of it. Beyond the shower gel and lotion, I don't use that stuff. So in the set I received this year I got body glitter- nice idea except I'm not 12. So I just put in the breakroom at work and by the time I came back for my break it was gone. I think that's what I'll do from now on. It's alot easier than putting it somewhere only for it to go to waste.
While I know people like to give gifts, if you're not certain it's best not to give them anything- at least that's how I think about it.
"I got body glitter- nice idea except I'm not 12. " Hahahahahaha.
Thanks Alecia-I have to chuckle at aykianink's response, ha ha. But, your idea to 'share' the unwanted gift is a good way to pass it on.
If someone gives me a fancy candle I sometimes re-gift. They are pretty, and they smell good, they're just not my thing. They usually come from someone who doesn't know me well, and I pass them on to someone in the same category.
I received a sweater that itches like crazy and is too small for my apparently bulbous head. I want rid of it. I like t-shirts or longer shirts that I can roll up at the sleeves, yet everyone who buys for me is dead-set on covering my body with the bulkiest fabrics available.
... maybe this is a subtle commentary from my family...
