Say (almost) anything #151. It's Regifting Day!

Before you attempt to regift unwanted presents, there are some things you need to know.

You should be reasonably certain the recipient will enjoy your (unwanted) gift. Be honest–with yourself, of course. When it comes to your “regiftee,” you’re going to lie like a rug.

The gift must be brand new and in its original packaging.

Don’t regift a personalized item!

Examine it closely—very closely–to ensure you’ve removed any tags before you wrap it in new paper.

Be careful not to regift something to the original giver. (Rookie mistake!) If you can’t remember who gave it to you, don’t give it to anyone else.

Regift only when you are sure the new recipient won’t tell the original giver about what they received from you. Try to regift in different social circles.

Be prepared to fully commit to the lie. If you don’t have a ready response to a question like, “Where did you find this? I’ve been looking everywhere for one!” your ruse will be exposed.

If anything goes wrong, know that the resulting moment of embarrassment will feel like it stretches to infinity

I don’t think I’ve ever regifted anything.

What do you do with stuff you don't want?

It goes in a draw. Last time I got something I didn’t want, I was 15 and it was a shirt from my mother. I just held onto it for a couple of years, then added it to the donation box during our yearly clean out.

Sometimes I can’t tell if I’m looking at a card or an ad.

Video auto play is back on iOS even though it clearly states off in the settings. The sound is on too.

Why regift? Sell them on ebay 😂

So, one holiday I gifted my boss a pair of funny crazy socks. Next year she brings in a few things & has me do some gift wrapping for her. You guessed it, she gave me the socks to wrap for her girlfriend Candace. I called her on it immediately embarrassing her and her husband

To be clear: the calling out happened at their store where I was wrapping the socks. NOT in front of the receipiant

What did she say?

Pamela
They were very adult & she said 'kids come in to look at my socks & I didn't want to offend' so she offended me instead

People might claim their gifts back. So you need to keep them, unless it's just chocolate, etc.

So regifting a tennis racket in the same box is bad idea if you regifted it to the same parapalegic that gave you it?

All my gifts (not many) come with the same advice: use it, regift it or burn it. It's yours, you can do with it what you want.

Did you know that Trump once regifted a present to his son? 😊

EscapeAuthor
Yup, I guess he didn't want to donate it to charity, let them buy their own

I find the flood of pictures of children from the internet disturbing.

What am I missing? What's wrong with that card?

Jabba Ree 🌹, no. Ripping off pictures of underage kids and pairing them with “inspirational” quotes is creepy.
