Recieve Reject Regift t-shirt - buy yours for yourslef or AS A GIFT (haha!) at!

An idea which has been in turn reviled and respected, most scrappy gift givers have either done it or been tempted to do it. And you have to admit we respect those friends of ours who successfully re-gift.

Today is your day to be totally justified, but the most important thing might be that it be thoughtful.

Personally, I’m guilty of just grabbing a bottle of wine for any event I’m headed off to…completely disregarding if maybe someone else gave that bottle to me!

Need some helpful hints about regifting, check out & read tips and tricks to re-gift with style!
