Tis the season of giving. This website is hilarious. It’s about the art that is known as “regifting“. It has regifting 101, regifting stories, and a pretty cool Regifting Robin game! If you’re asian, your parents are probably experts at regifting haha.

Here’s a funny regifting story:

Busted, so busted

My favorite aunt bought me a sweater that was awful. It had colorful appliqus all over it and looked like one of Bill Cosby’s rejects. I dutifully swooned over it and put it away and forgot about it. Years later I was looking for one last present and came upon the sweater and thought, “She’ll love this!” I wrapped it up. It wasn’t until my favorite aunt was unwrapping said sweater that it dawned on me. Yes, I had given the same aunt back the sweater she’d given me. I watched her face go from delight to bewilderment while my mind raced. I asked quickly, “Do you love it? Does it look familiar?” She looked up at me and nodded slowly. I blurted, “Years ago you had gotten me a sweater almost exactly like it. When I saw this in the store, I couldn’t believe it and I had to get it for you!” She broke out in a huge smile and told me how much she loved it. I’ve learned my lesson, and apparently she has too, because since that Christmas I’ve received nothing but gift cards from her.
