    Very rarely.

    usually I'll give away something that I don't want...whether to someone I know (explaining that it was an unwanted gift), or to an op shop.

    I currently have 2 unwanted gifts that I've hung on to.

    One is a baby toy given to us when our daughter was born (7 months ago). It's a lovely toy, but we already had one, so I'll hang on to it in case someone that I think will like it has a bub.

    The other is a set of miniature perfumes which my dad bought me. I don't wear perfume, but he's the type of person to buy women flowers/perfume/jewel leery because that's just what you do... He was aware I might not want them when he gave them to me, and said to give them away etc. if I didn't. Trouble is I don't know anyone who'd appreciate them, and they'll sell on eBay for probably over $50...so I think I'll be doing that.

    I haven't but I would quite happily. If I knew someone who would love the gift then I would regift, wouldn't do it just for the sake of it though cause I love getting people things I think they'll enjoy

    I have for kris Kringle at work, do t think I have otherwise. I would be too scared that I accidentally gave it back to the giver!

    Yes, one time, years ago.
    It was my aunt and uncle's wedding and DH and I were flat broke teenagers at the time.. but we really wanted to go to the wedding so I gave them a really nice hand painted serving platter! I'd never served actual food on it, I'd used it as an ornamental display and it had a little stand.
    It had recently been given to me from a good friend, but she had taken it from her parents house when they divorced as neither had wanted to keep it... so it was more like 3rd hand as opposed to 2nd hand by the time my aunty got it, lol..
    I made a bit of an effort, though; bought a nice gift box and stuffed it wit coloured tissue paper

    That particular box has been doing the rounds since about 2003

    Once, only once.

    It turns out the person I was re-gifting it to had infact given it to me as a gift some five or so years earlier. I never had a use for it - table candle centre piece thing - so never opened it. We laughed.

    I was given heaps of little bits of pieces for jasper when he was born, useful things, but loads of the same things I didn't need heaps of. I was also given a hamper of things.

    So I put a bunch of things back in the hamper, bought a few extra things (like a thermometer and I don't remember what else but maybe added another $20 of things to it) and gave it to a friend at her baby shower. It was pretty good recycling I thought!

    I do. My in laws go crazy at Christmas & buy us loads - not everything is to my taste so I will regift to a friend if I think they will like it. I just did a regift for a friend but then paid for her meal when we went out so I don't think I'm being scungy.

    I have a gift cupboard with those miscellaneous gifts like candles, body shop packs etc that I don't use which can get regifted for kris kringles, things like that.

    I don't see the big deal, saves money & environmentally friendly!
