The Trials and Tribulations of Regifting

The Trials and Tribulations of RegiftingRegifting can be a very difficult question – do you buy something new, or use something you already have? Refusing a gift, especially just because you dislike it, is seen as an insensitive, rude gesture by most people, so unwanted gifts tend to pile up.

When you are uncertain whether a gift is in order look at how close you are to the recipient – are you a relative? Do you see them often? Are you close with their parents? Also consider whether you are at a party – if you go to a birthday party you should bring a gift, but if it just happens to be a co-worker’s birthday at work you need not worry.
