Did you get any presents for Christmas that you won't keep or don't like? What do you do with them?

Have to get presents to decide. I got nothing.

I don't really exchange gifts with enough people to get things that I absolutely dislike. My mom asked me what I wanted and she got me a blu-ray player. My aunt and uncle give us a zoo season pass for the family every year plus a few little things. And that's really all that I exchange with!

Aww I'm sorry that stinks! I don't normally get much. My mom did really well shopping this year.

I never take gifts back. If it's like a Pollyanna or something impersonal, maybe I'll pawn it off on someone else or just put it up until it becomes useful. If it's given out of love, I'll love it even though I hate it. Hubs got me a bright pink giant Gucci bag last year covered in giant Gs with a big giant metal G clasp. It was huge and wasn't cheap. And it is hideous. Not my style. Not even close. And everything I own is neutral colors for the most part. I used it for a long time because he bought it and said "your favorite color is pink" with a smile on his face when I opened it. He's bad with gifts 😂 but I love him. He did much much better this year, asked the sales lady for help this time.

Yup. I got a mug/knicknack set thing complete with the price tag still on it. I threw away the knickknack and shoved the mug in the cabinet. It'll get used.

lol! Aww well it's sweet that he made an attempt to get you something nice :) I wasn't too fond of the scent of my candle that my aunt got me this year but I'll still use it anyways. I'm glad your hubby did better this year. Did he buy you another purse?

lol well at least you will use some of it! I give away things that I don't like anymore on a swap group I'm in on Facebook but I haven't had to regift anything so far recently.

I can always use more mugs! I haven't regifted anything in a long time. This was just a sad attempt. I would have regifted but I really like mugs even if they're ugly.
