Are You a Regifter?
- Some studies claim most Americans have regifted, at one time or another.
‘Fess up now. Have you ever regifted anything?
I saw a story that says many Americans have–in fact, there are those who would tell you most of us have, at one time or another.
I’m not trying to toot my own horn here, but I don’t remember ever doing a regift–you know, taking something someone gave to you, wrapping it up and giving it to someone else.
I know, it sounds like a “Seinfeld” episode, and it probably was. Or it could be a politician trying to weasel out of some sticky situation by saying “I do not recall ever regifting.”
It seems to me that there might be a graceful way to pass something along–not some hideous “White Elephant” sort of thing, but a quality item you just have no use for, or something you already have.
But if you’re thinking about recycling a past gift this Christmas, leave me out of it, unless it’s a new red Ferrari, just like the one you already have (Just go with it here).
Then, I’ll be happy to take it off your hands, and I promise not to make you feel guilty.
