Site Helps You To ‘Regift’

What, you might ask, is regifting? Regifting, according to Wikipedia is “the act of taking a gift that has been received and giving it to somebody else in the guise of a new gift.” Many times has it been the subject of humour in TV and film (like Seinfeld, which I’ve finally started watching and ‘Old School’ with Will Ferrell which I caught on DVD lately) but I can’t say I would ever do it myself.

Not only that, but seemingly there’s certain etiquette about it as well

  1. The primary rule is not to give a gift back to the person who gave it to you.
  2. Similarly, regifting to someone who knows the original giver carries the risk of exposing both your lack of attachment to the gift, and your failure to select and purchase a new gift for the recipient.
  3. One should remove any cards and other indicators that the gift was originally given to you.
  4. Finally, using the gift before regifting it — so that it is no longer “new” — is generally considered inappropriate.

It is big around Christmas in relation to presents and certainly big in the US but starting to creep into Irish society a bit as well. So, was established, to “help you get through the season with your budget and sanity intact”.

But, if that’s what you’re into – regifting – you can find all about it on, including reading some success stories and garnering a few tips on how to pull it off.

If you do regift – shame on you!
