Tips for re-gifting

In the words of Yoda the great Jedi Master, “Ah my young re-gifting apprentice. If re-gift you must — then must you re-gift?”. Re-gifting is more of a science than an art, so before you embark on your journey of enlightened re-gifting here are a few tips from the master. Mike’s top five tips for re-gifting.

#5. Do not re-gift to the same person that gave you the original gift. I know this seems obvious, but it has happened, that’s why I mention it.

#4. Before re-gifting clothing, remove deodorant dust from all pits and crevices (and give it a nice shake to freshen it up a bit).

#3. Remember to apply a price tag, then remove most of it, revealing just a small piece of the tag.

#2. Carefully remove monogram stitching. NOTE: Do not remove monogram stitching with your teeth and tongue (especially if you have a weepy cold sore)!

#1. No calenders, no underwear and no home-made beer.
