“Ok admit it, who here is a regifter?
My boss is the biggest re-gifter i even met.
As a purchasing agent, everyone wants our biz. So she gets loads of gifts durning the holidays. As soon as she gets a gift she decieds as to who will get it. some of the stuff is real nice. So everyone loves her because they think she spends so much money for the holiday.
so fess up, are you or are you not a re-gifter?”
“If I get some crap I don't want, sure.
I know for a fact we gave away some of the useless junk we got as wedding gifts.
I've been known to give stuff back to people the following year.”
“Hey i consider regifting recycling! It is better than having a bunch of crap sitting in your closets that you will never use. Just make sure that you don't give it back to the giver.
We have one friend that gives us really tacky stuff, good thing we have another friend that likes tacky stuff.”
“Yah really! It's good for the environment!
Especially in the environs of my wallet!”
“nope! I actually have this real ugly small statue in my kitchen because a friend of mine gave it to me...
I keep pretty much all of it.
oh, I did once!! Cameron's teacher gave me a candle for christmas for helping out in class....I didn't like it, kept it for 3 years, then gave it away! :( I did feel bad though!”
“If I get a double of something and I think that someone else could use it....why not? During this time of year, the last thing I wantto do is stand in line, return the thing, then stadn in line again getting another gift.....
Oh, BTW - JIHAD REGIFTERS!!!!!!”
I give up used underware each and every year.”
“"I don't trust this guy. I think he re-gifted, and then he de-gifted, and now he's using an upstairs invite as a springboard to a Super Bowl sex romp."
- Jerry, about Tim Whatley, in "The Label Maker"”
“ok your all CHEAP!!
even evil santa thinks sooo
“Dang! Check out Old St. Blunt!”
“If I get one of those monster spliffs for Xmas, I ain't regifting it...”
“And the term isn't cheap, now we're considered to by "enviromentally conscious".”
“Me neither Bit!
We can fire up those fatties on the Savage Gulf trip.”
“Do be aware that the Savage Gulf park rangers lurk on this site...lol...”
“i am not a regifter....but i have received a regifted gift.”
“Yam! Hobbs Cabin! Next Weekend! Be There! Aloha!”
“bit!! i'll have to see!! (you must be going, eh?)”
“i don't know, bit......father goose is going. i'd be a 'fer sure' if he wasn't gonna be there....hahahahaha.
“lol...aw come on, he don't bite....”
“so who has done it?
my boss is on a roll!
big box of candy came in today with both of our names on it. Before I even had a chnace to say if I wanted it or not, BAM its re-gifted. Its on its way down to the shipping dept.”
“It would just make you fat, mapes.
Were you not just posting on the lose weight thread? ;)”
“I just did it today. You and Treebeard may want to be on the look out for a 10 year old fruit cake.”
“nope not till Jan 5th, im rockin out till there!”
“Ah, fruit cake. The gift that keeps on giving, and giving, and giving, and ...”
“what is the record for the oldest fruit cake?”
“Yummy. Can I get mine with extra mold.”
“It's a different form of re-gifting.
My daughter got a Chia pet about 5 years ago and never opened it, it just sat in the closet. The other day she saw one in the store and said she wanted one.
I wrapped it up and she's getting it again.”
“may not grow. seeds die after about a year.”
“That's ok, sounds like she probably won't open it this year either. LOL!”
“Uh-oh, thanks. Guess I better get a new one and give her two just in case.”
“In the beginning, there was Chia Pet, the houseplant & animal hybrid that took the world by storm! Then came Chia Head, the international sensation that brought the wonder of Chia to an artificial human scalp! Now, we bring you Chia Puberty - five enchanting Greco-Roman figurines guaranteed to fill your home with the magic of puberty!”
“Nigal, that's what I was thinking too. Next year there will be 2 in the closet.”
“I stopped doing our cutthroat pollyannas because of regifting. We were supposed to spend $20 and buy a gift for either a man or woman, and people were spending way under $20 and buying potpourris and bath oils (or regifting).
So this year I didn't join in, and somebody got a briefcase she doesn't need and she gave it to me. I wanted to pay her, but she wouldn't take it. Go figure!
So I'm gonna pick something nice up for her.”
“spend $20.00 on me :)”
“"spend $20.00 on me :)"
What a bargin! I have to spend $50 for just a handy down on 3rd street and forget an around the world!”
Talk about regifting...
“Last Saturday I saw the mailman come down the road so I decided to meet him at my mailbox and say "hi". He beat me there by a few seconds and said "Thanks for the cake!!" I said "You're welcome and Merry Christmas!!"
I go in the house and ask my wife what kind of cake did she leave in the mailbox for the postman and she says "I didn't leave a cake in the mailbox!"
So, OUR cake that someone left us got regifted quickly to the postman!!
LMAO!! Dang, I didn't even get to see what kind it was or who left it!!”
“thats pretty funny.”
“time to recycle an old thread

“A local radio show was talking about "regifting" this morning, one caller said his boss gave his employees gifts of the toiletries he picked up from motel rooms on business trips. Most of the things had been opend and partially used.”
“I regift things to the trash can. Nobody thinks of the trash can at holiday time.”
“You're a considerate soul, Geobeet.”
“I take home flwer vases patients throw away to use with fresh boquets from the garden that I give people...”
“There's nothing wrong with that.”
“Does anyone need a bun warmer for Christmas?
I have one I don't need.”
“my buns get quite cold this time of year...”
“Sounds like we have a re-gift winner!”
