Your Easy Flowchart Guide To Regifting

Posted by under Money Saving Tips . Updated: November 20, 2018

“Christmas is a time of forgiving and forced giving,” a friend jokingly tells me the other day. I can understand her frustration – and I think everyone can relate to that.

Personally, I do believe that true friends won’t mind what gift you give them (or if you don’t give one at all) – because friendships should go much deeper than material things.

And besides, nobody really wants to receive a half-heartedly given gift.

However, if you’re feeling generous this holiday season but you also want to save some cash along the way, then I suggest you regift your old gifts – which by the way, could also include some of the “old” but “great” stuff you own.

Below is an easy to follow flowchart I made to guide you with regifting:

    It doesn’t have to be a secret, as long as the person receiving the re-gift is comfortable with receiving it, or is a re-gifter as well. I once received an elaborate make-up set eye make up, blush etc in many different colors. For one, I don’t wear make-up, so I re-gifted it to a friend who likes make-up; and told her that someone had given it to me and would she like it since I was never going to use it. She loved it and said I saved her time and money (and apparently it was a costly item that she wouldn’t have bought for herself).

    Books make great re-gifts, too. A bunch of friends and I all decided we were exchanging books instead of buying gifts.
