The Re-gifter!

So its the Holidays now. I was driving home from work tonight, and it was the subject on 97.1 fm, the john and jeff show, and I called in to talk and laugh about re-gifting. ok, Im 27, and I talked about how my mother sends away all the time to win Vacations, and they always send her a second place prize. I usually end up with that for Christmas. Last year, my sister got a new car, ( trying not to laugh) but I got, beef Jerky, corona flip flops, and a shot glass chess set. and its all the stuff that she wins from sending puffy painted envelopes to sweepstakes. I am the worst actor ever, cause when I open the gifts, its so hard for me not to laugh, so I start going " wow, look at all the features of this shot glass checkers set, you can put water, or tequila in them, or just play chckers with nothing in them". I am so bad at acting like I like it, but my mom never picks up on it. haha, and I hate beef jerky, so this year I told her I didnt want anything, Im 27, so she shouldnt be giving me anything anyways. But have you ever re-gifted anything, I am guilty of re-gifting this blender I got once.

My office mate gave me some expensive stinky soap someone had given her. She hates gifts with scents, would never ever ever buy one for someone, so I knew she was regifting. I was actually a little bit offended because she should know I hate scented gifts as well and threw it in the trash as soon as I got home. We've shared an office for 5 years and pretty much know everything about each other in terms of likes and dislikes so how she could not know that I wouldn't like the soaps anymore than she did is beyond me.

I have a wallet that my mother gave me about 8 years ago. It's still in the box and is exactly the kind of wallet she would buy for herself. Should I re-gift it back to her? She probably wouldn't remember and would really like it.

My father in law is a pastor of a sizable church, so people buy him weird crap all the time.

The funny thing is though, whenever he gets a crap gift and I am around he smiles, thanks the person and then looks at me and winks. That means I am going to get that gift for Christmas.

Two years ago, I received 4 Lord of the Rings mugs from Burger King that light up.

Please people, remember just because a man or a woman uses something as an example in a sermon - it doesn't mean they want all things marketable from said illustration.




So, I guess I am asking, "Does anyone want 4 really cool LOTR mugs?"

Put 'em up on ebay. People will buy anything. A friend of mine bought a book on how to repair clocks for $8 in some old junk store and as a joke, and a test, put it up on ebay. Sold for 60 bucks.

Hello my name is Karen and I have re-gifted. I felt really bad but I was very careful not to re-gift the gift so that the original gift giver would ever know. Is that evil?

Maybe we should turn this thread into a re-gift and gift trading thread! Especially with the holidays coming up! We can list things we were given that we don't want to keep and we could trade!
