SLIDESHOW: The Rules of Regifting
Trust Your Instincts
Avoid regifting something just for the sake of it. Remember that you can always hang on to things until the right recipient comes along - and they always do. Above all, the gift should still be a good fit for the giftee, not just a convenient way for you to pass things along that you don't want. Ask yourself if this is something you would've picked out for them in the first place. If not, rethink it.
An easy test is to ask if the gift is something you would’ve picked out for them or that they’ve specifically asked for. If not, rethink your regifting choice.
