I have no problem with regifting. I would much rather see something I give to someone be given to someone else. If they don't like it or can't use it. It si much better than sitting in the closet. Only catch : It had better not be regifted back to me. Lol. Now I have heard one pair of sister would reguft an old photo frame that was given to her by her mother. Neither liked it. So, it was sort of a game thy played back and fourth. So, I guess regufting can be a good thing to.

I have regifted before, and I know that I have received regift items. I do not have a problem with it, but if I receive a gift and have no idea what to do with it, I will not give it to anyone else. gifts like that I will hold onto until have a garage sale. I received a wedding gift that was absolutely terrible, I still to this day have no idea what it was or what it was used for. I would never give that to anyone. Even at our garage sale, noone would buy it. Regifting is okay, but you should be sensible about giving it to someone if you really do not like it yourself, because the gift may eventually come back to you.

I would say it depends on the condition of what you are going to regift. I mean there are people who regift and the thing that they are giving away are just plain useless already. Something that would have embarassed you even if it is new. My rule of thumb when it comes to regifting is that I give away things that are double of something already. For example, for this holiday season, I received two photoframes of the same kind, I use the other one as a gift to someone else. Or if I receive two mugs of the same design.

I have no problem with it either, as you say so long as it is not thrown away, I have found a lot of people are not good at picking up what people really like, i like to stick with buying the things that people collect or buy for themselves rather than just buying something practical, but it is no good people keeping things they don't really like...
