Is it okay for me to re-gift an item? Nancy Mitchell: Absolutely, I think it needs times when we thinking about having less of an impact on our environment, think about re-gifting but here is the disclaimer; you have got to be extremely careful. Keep a gift log when gifts come in to you, write down when you received them, what the gift was, what the occasion was and who gave you the gift. Then if you know if something you will never use, you don t like it. It is going to sit on a shelf or it is going to go out to a charity. The next time the truck comes on your street and picks up the give away material, then put in the special place and think about re-gifting it. You cannot re-gift a gift that you have used or has come out of its original packaging. What is wrong with finding a decent home for that poor gift? It may not be something that you appreciate; it may be terrific for somebody else. Just be very-very careful of that it does not go back to the originator, it does not go back to someone who is close to the originator and would see it in their home, be very-very careful about that. Also, if have a very close relationship with someone I would not re-gift. That is the time when you go out and you find a gift that says the message that you were trying to convey if you will that I appreciate you, we are friends, I appreciate your business or in some cases I love you when it is boyfriend, girlfriend, it is husband, it is wife. You have to consider all of those options, if you will in the mix before you decided to re-gift. But why not it is collecting dust on your shelf?
