The Very Best Items to Regift

Short of making your loved ones homemade Christmas ornaments out of glue and macaroni, regifting is one economical way to give your loved ones something that they actually want. Listen to that again: You're not just passing off things you want to get rid of, but giving something that someone else will enjoy. While passing off an old, unused present to a new recipient may have seemed rude and thoughtless in the past, over 36% of Americans participated in this tradition in 2009, compared to 24% in 2007 (according to Consumer Reports). After all, don't they say one man's trash is another's treasure? With that in mind, we've compiled tips for thoughtful regifting that won't make you look—or feel—cheap.
