Question about what to do with an unwanted gift...

My younger sister, in her infinite jest, decided to give me a Breaking Dawn Part 2 throw blanket with Edward (Robert Pattinson). She apparently thought it was fifty shades of funny and I didn't. I already have my husband making fun of me periodically for liking Twilight. I don't own any Twilight merchandise except for the books and the movies. I grew out of the merchandise thing a long time ago, especially since I got married and had children. 

What should I do with it? If I sell it on eBay, would that be tacky? I have no intention of using it; it will get put away in storage if I don't get rid of it. 

Thanks in advance!

If you see a homeless person, give it to them.

Sell it, or give it to someone who will use it. :-)

Trust me, I don't think you'll have any trouble getting rid of it. Hell, I have at least 3 friends on Facebook that would give a breast for any Twilight memorabilia.

You could sell it or donate it.

Donate to a woman's shelter, a pet shelter, or some other good cause that is always looking for items like that.  Teen pregnancy centers would probably go nuts for it!
