Description:
A few years b4 DH and I got together, my Xbf gave me a Tiffanys bracelet! It was a thank-you for getting him into rehab.. (we were broken up by then) and I still have it. DH doesn't like me wearing it becuz my Xbf has admitted he still has feeling for me. So I have a perfectly goo Tiffanys bracelet sitting in my house and no one wearing it. My BFF LOVES Tiffanys and made a comment awhile ago that she wuold LOVE something Tiffanys. So her 21st bday is coming up. If I shine it up and re package it is it ok to give it to her as her gift! It meant alot to me, but I want someone to have it who will wear it!

Is it ok to re-gift it to her?

    I had to pick other...it depends on how you do it. If you tell her (write a note and put it in the box) that it is yours and you are giving it to her because it means alot to you, and she means alot to you and you know she loves Tiffany's, then its not really re-gifting, its giving a gift from the heart, and that is cool...I would leave out how and who you got it from originally though. If you just give it to her with the impression that it is new and you got it just for her, that is kind of tacky. Its one thing to regift a crockpot you got at your wedding from someone you barely know as a gift for your office gift exchange, but not for a friend for a special event--unless you can make it more than a re-gift.

    She would probably love it, even if it was regifted. If I was you tho, I would tell my hubby to shut the f*ck up and let me wear the bracelet, unless he plans on REPLACING it with another Tiffany's piece of jewelry. Your married to HIM now, he shouldn't be insecure over a bracelet.

    I'd keep it and wear it. It's a piece of jewelry, it's not like you're wearing the ex's penis around your wrist.

    Its the fact the my Xbf is still part of my life and I am wearing a bracelet that obviously meant more than a thank you that bothers him! I don't mind not wearing it! I haven't in over a year.. I just don't see the use of having it sit around the house when someone I care for would LOVE to have it! You know?

    I agree with the 1st person. Tell her it is yours but you want to give it to her since you don't wear it. I can agree with your husband. I don't think you would be okay with something an ex gave your husband, especially if this ex still has feelings for you.

    Give it to her and let her know the story, don't pretend as if you bought it for her. Honesty is always the best policy.

    You can give it to her. But not as a birthday gift.

    It's nice to give it to her, but I'm a pack rat and would never give it up. :)
