If it hasn't been used or opened then I say no....why toss it out if you know someone else who would like it?

I agree, if it hasn't been used or open then it is fine to re-gift it.

I am the odd ball here. I think it is. I would not give someone a gift that was given to me. /shrug

Gentle parenting is about guiding instead of controlling,
connecting instead of punishing,
and encouraging instead of demanding.
It's about listening, understanding, responding and communicating.

I think its kind of weird but why not? If its not been opened then sure as long as you dont accidently give it to the person that gave it to you, lol. I however could never regift because I cant stand the thought of stuff we are not using cluttering up my house. So no way could I hold onto it that long.

I'm on the fence...

I agree with Kristy & Kelsey, but IMO it would depend on the actual gift and who it was from. NOT that some people's gifts are "less" important than others, but I hope you get what I mean lol

I get what you mean!!!

I would absolutely regift something if it was something that i know the person would like and use. I wouldnt do it just for the sake of having something to give. For example we were given two of the same picture frame for jakes christening. And while it was beautiful, it was one of those that had a spot for each month for the first year, not really something you would have two of. So i regifted it to my cousin who had a baby a short while later. She loved it.

I do it with the kids toys too. Sometimes they get things that they wont like or just never get around to opening. So I do wrap them up and give them to other kids, but I always make sure that the person I got it from doesnt know the kids family!!!

yeah I wouldn't re-gift in in the sense of giving it as an actual birthday gift or whatever....thought I should clarify but I WOULD give it to someone I knew would want or need the item...

I think it's ok as long as it's not opened or used. I haven't done it myself, but if I received something that I'm not going to use and I know someone else would, then I don't see the problem with it.

Oh yeah I don't see anything wrong with re-gifting. I have done it lots with duplicate wedding and shower gifts.

The reason why I would not is because I would feel bad. Feel bad for the person that got it for me AND for the person I am giving it too. I imagine the person getting it for me thinking I would like / use it and then I give it away? I don't know. Like, what if they ever asked about it...

I regift if I can. I used to worry about if people would ask about the gift but the clutter drove me more nuts!!!! It's my house I get to veto what comes in it (I donated a gift my mother gave the girls the week after xmas, it was IRRITATINGLY loud) If I don't regift something it ends up donated.

I would re-gift if the gift is not wanted and the giver of the gift would never find out.
