i think that it would be ok, concidering if the item that was given to you you definitly werent going to use, i couldnt see why the item would have to go to waste so to speek. The person who gave you the item mey be offended if the situation isnt explianed by you and they find out by a third party so you would have to be careful not to upset or offend the giver if that person was someone inportant to you.

I already offered some perfumes the were given to me and that were given to the person that gave them to me. Since I only use one type of perfume the others were just siting in my desk so I offered then to someone that would probably use it. I think it is an wise idea but it also depends on the type of gift you are re-gifting.

Usually I will not do that. i did once though. We got two identical pasta machines for christmas. My partners sister wanted one but did not get one. We gave her one of ours for her birthday shortly after christmas. I do not see the harm in that - but I do not think it is nice to regift all the stuff one gets.
