Gifts That Keep on Giving

Have you ever “regifted?” You know, given something as a gift that someone had given to you? According to an article in the _Detroit News_, 40 percent of people admit to regifting. “Admit” seems to be the key word. Now there’s a “web site”: on the subject that offers advice for tactful regifting (is that an oxymoron?). Among the suggestions: Always rewrap the gift; only give items that are new and in their original packaging; and, perhaps most importantly, know who gave you the gift in the first place so you don’t give it back to them!

After all of the wrapped presents are placed in the middle of the room, people draw numbers to see who gets to pick first. It’s a fun way to do a bit of honest regifting before the real gifts are given on Christmas morning.
