    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
    Totally hearing you.
    I wish people just wouldn't buy gifts for every. single. person they know. I always have a stack of generic little gifts for these people who turn up gift in hand and I have totally forgotten them

    I wish we could scrap the whole gift thing altogether and just buy for our nearest and dearest

    I know @Power child! It gets a bit much doesn't it. No one wants your novelty coffee mug or candle people!

    I just heard on the radio that today is one of the biggest shopping days before Christmas and we are going to put through like $100 million through the tills today alone!! How much of that stuff is just going to end up as landfill...

    If a few presents accidentally make their way from your 5 year olds ginormous birthday pile into their Santa sack, does that count as re gifting? Same person and all...

    Nope. And it's not regifting if it goes to a different child in the same family.

I would normally give that stuff to another generic Occassion- you know when u have to give something to someone as a token
    I was going to say pretty much the same! I regift...no point leaving it to collect dust, but I would not regift for a special occasion - except French champagne....I don't like it..even the expensive stuff so I'll gift it to someone who does like it

    I'll be happy to take that French champagne off your hands yogismumma ! Not a fair swap though as you may or may not get a candle in return

    We have a box. Quite a large box of bits and peices that have either been gifts from someone and we didn't like or just stuff. When we get caught out without something (obviously not an important occasion) we just grab some thing from the box. I always make an effort to say, "feel free to regift. Hahaha" joke but serial. 😁

    I very rarely receive something I don't like. And I would never describe a gift as "useless crap". How offensive.

    If I received 'unless crap' as a gift I would feel ashamed to then regift to someone else. Why would they want the useless crap any more than I wanted it? If it was really crap I'd give it away or put it in the bin. And buy a decent gift for someone when the occasion arises. Actually I haven't been in situation where a token gift has been required. Am I missing something?! I have been for example given a small Christmas present when I haven't got one for the other person and simply said sorry I didn't get you a gift. The conversation moves on, I don't think they were offended.

    When are token presents required?
