Regifting is something that comes with a bit of a stigma, and a lot of people aren’t sure if regifting is a good idea or not. You want to be able to accept someone’s gift with a lot of gratitude, and you want to be able to use and enjoy that gift, no matter what it is. But sometimes you simply cannot help it if someone gives you something that you really do not want or need. And rather than letting it sit in your closet, hidden away as it collects dust and takes up space, perhaps you have thought about selling it to make some fast cash, or giving it away as a gift to someone else you think would actually appreciate it.

When it comes to regifting, many awkward mistakes can be made. You obviously don’t want to inadvertently give a gift right back to the person who gave it to you in the first place, and you certainly do not want the new recipient to find out that you are giving them a second-hand gift. But these are just two potentially embarrassing scenarios that can occur when you regift an item.
