The re-gifter

Did you ever have the creeping suspicion that the world's worst Christmas presents never really found a home, but instead just kept getting rewrapped and regiven over and over again, year after year? You can thank the Re-Gifters out there.

Granted, no true Scrooge would willingly part with even a bad present, but in a pinch, re-gifting sure beats having to part with hard currency.

Here are three warning signs that you've been re-gifted:

  • The price tag is more than a year old.
  • That color or style was "in" last year.
  • Your first thought upon opening it is: Who can I give this to?
