    Just remember who gave you the gift and what group you were with when you got it. Then re-gift it. I've done the same thing many times, You always get something that you don't like or can't use. Another way of recycling.

    My sister and I have begun the tradition of exchanging at least one gift at Christmas that is designated Recycled or Re-gifted. The idea being...we're giving the other person something that we like, but don't use or need. It's a fun thing to do and the regifted items are actually pretty special because they meant enough to the other person that they didn't simply donate the item to charity and instead chose to give it to someone special.

    I received a cupcake maker a few years ago from my aunt. It so novel and cute...but impractical when you're baking a full batch of cupcakes (they bake 6 at a time). So this year, I'm making my nieces (ages 11 and 9) little cupcake-themed aprons, plus the cupcake maker, with the full disclosure (to my brother) that the cupcake maker is a regift. Part of the gift will be baking cupcakes with the girls using the new cupcake maker. I'm not at all embarrassed and think it will be a memorable gift.

    Just a thought!!

    Store credit seems like a rather safer than sorry option. I like it!

    There is nothing wrong with re-gifting. I have been doing that for over 40 years and no one has ever complained about what they got. They have always loved it.
