The “rules” for regifting

Local News

Some Americans are turning to regifting this holiday season.

More than three in four Americans find regifting socially acceptable, according to a survey from American Express.

In 2014 CNN shared eight “rules” for proper regifting.

  1. Mind your social circles: Don’t regift in the same social circle
  2. Make sure some time has lapsed
  3. It has to be the right fit: Make sure it fits the receivers unique style
  4. Don’t re-gift with immediate family members: Skip the re-gift option when it comes to parents and siblings
  5. The gift has to have value: Unless it’s an heirloom or antique, a re-gift should always be something new-ish
  6. Keep the original packaging, but always re-wrap
  7. It can’t be sentimental: Hand-made gifts, or something sentimental should not be regifted
  8. Admit it when caught
