  • I've re gifted gifts from students. It's not because they were horrid gifts, it is because it's stuff I DIDN'T NEED and would NEVER USE. I got a pack of hand lotions once, so I re gifted it to my DDs DCP, and added a gift card to it. The following year I got a Starbucks coffee mug. I don't ever drink coffee, and don't use mugs, so I re gifted that to a relative, and added a Starbucks GC inside. My students never knew, and I showed great appreciation when opening the gift.

  • My mother has always given me the ugliest goodwill clothing for gifts. Seriously, she buys me stuff she would want to wear back in the late 70's. It's like she's never met me in her life.
    I love Goodwill and shop there all the time. Just saying she buys me the worst stuff they have sometimes. Usually she doesn't buy me anything ever, even for holidays and birthdays, which is a good thing.

  • Silver Candelabras from my MIL for our wedding. They're hideous. What could I do they were a wedding present! From my MIL! I put up with them on top of my china cabinet (a beautiful piece that my MIL also bought us) until we remodeled, then they never came back into the house. I donated them to Goodwill.

    I can always tell when I've been regifted. I find it really insulting and I wont do it. But, what I will do is say "so and so gave me this. I don't care for it but I thought you might like it." Then the person can say yes or no and also get something that i've chosen for then on those occasions that warrant a gift.
