    I do this with kids toys too.
    Usually its if one of my kids got a double up present i will put it away for someone elses kids.
    And IF its one they gave me and I got caught out i would say "DD loves it so much i thought Shelly would love one too" or something to that effect!

    Of course who doesn't? I save heaps of things I've been given that I don't want to regift. It's normally generic stuff, coffee mugs, candles blah blah all the useless crap you are given each year. I would normally give that stuff to another generic Occassion- you know when u have to give something to someone as a token

    I do it all the time. But I tell them. I give gifts to people they can also feel free to regift if they don't want. Eg I give my sister a gift and say I loved this but (not drinking too small)

    What do you do with your unwanted gifts @treegal? Being a "tree gal" surely you would want to do something enviromentally friendly with these generic gifts that lets face it, we all receive and don't want. Why not past them on instead of buying more useless stuff??

    I was thinking the same thing.

    I have never regifted anything, I love buying gifts for people and put a lot of thought into what I buy people.

    If I have been given something I don't like/want I will give it to someone, never as a gift but tell them 'I was given this, it's not for me, did you want it?'

    You girls have lived a very sheltered life if that's the saddest description of gift giving you have ever heard...

    Geez I'm not saying I regift to close family/friends or anything. I said I regift it when another generic occasion arises or if someone pops over unexpectedly and you are caught off guard for a present

    This is when I think regifting is perfect.
    When It's more of a token gesture.
    I hate regifting when it's palmed off as "it's your birthday and I found these great ice servers/golf socks/hankies for you" when no thought has been put into it.

    I think regifting double ups of toys is a great idea. As is, donating those to wishing trees or charities.
