#ihartholidays: Regifting

Review it Rah-shay By Dec 18, 2012 No Comments

A few years ago my sister called herself funny and gave me a Chia Pet for Christmas. Like the grateful soul that I am, I got a little upset and tossed it into a box bound for charity. She never said anything more about it but I knew she thought her gag gift was at last worthy of being considered.

Looking back I realize my behavior was terrible and childish but at the time I rationalized that I was so upset and she should have known better.


What do YOU do when you get a gift that is just…blech?

Instead of feeling grinchy and being a terrible example for my daughter we have been trying to repurpose and yes, the dreaded regift.

Really, regifting is like borrowing that thing your family/friend has that you have kept your eye on for a while…right?

With the invention known as Pinterest, the words repurposing and reusing there is no such thing as a “bad gift.” ‘Tis the season to give but I will not lie, I like receiving!

I say head to Pinterest and find a way to up cycle that ugly shirt, repurpose that terrible skirt and reuse that silly hat.
