Regifting Baby Presents

Is Regifting Children's Gifts Clever or Tacky?

What's a mom to do when her son winds up with three of the same toys at the end of his birthday party? Philanthropic parents donate their excess goodies to charities while others take the presents back to exchange for fresh loot. Then, there's always that inkling some people have to rewrap the unused gift and pass it off to another child. Regifting might have been considered tacky in the past, but in the current economy, do you think it's appropriate?

giving a gift is not a requirement, it's optional. an appropriate gift is just that, regardless of how you came by it.

It's only tacky if you get caught. ;)

I think regifting is tacky. However, I might be willing to just give it to a friend (for no specific occasion) with an explanation that I had received it, but couldn't use it and thought they might enjoy it. No lying or sneakiness needed in that case and the item is still used.

I would regift. Children's gifts can get extremely expensive, and if it's something you don't need that would make another child happy, I don't see why not.

My take on it is, it's excess and isnt needed. If its good enough to be donated, why isnt it good enough to be used for another childs gift, a toy to make a child happy and learn. Technically, its donating whatever way, you just get to choose who its given to.
