Want more real mum questions sent to you?

Ask your question
  • i will be this year! and it helps that the people don’t know each other. they are good items I just wont use them

  • Yes I’ve been given doubles and haven’t been able to return for the girls so I gift others.

  • Definitely!
    If not people only get crafty things my children make for them, or some choccies, chrissy isnt about the gift or $$ spent, we dont see alot of family until chrissy holidays so we are all presents to each other ????????

  • I’ve never regifted at Xmas,although my sister did. Gave my sister some bath towels one Xmas and she straight away gave them to our mother

  • Yes – I make sure though that the gift is going to people not in the same circle…(made the mistake once and it was a little embarrassing)…unfortunately not everyone knows your likes and dislikes and I prefer to not waste. Another option is donating to charity or making it part of a prize hamper for an event etc

  • I’ve re-gifted many times. I don’t see an issue with it if you know the item won’t get used and you haven’t opened it but someone else would love it pass it on I say!

  • A few time’s I have. Mainly perfumes that I can’t wear or candles that I have 100’s off. Generally they would be regifted as secret Santa things though.

  • I don’t make a habit of it but I have one I am going to donate to an op shop. It has an aroma – nice for those who don’t get hayfever at all

  • Yes. If I can’t use something and I know someone who can, then why not?

  • This intends to happen every Christmas for my hubbie he has a lot of TShirts and he will take them out of the cupboard and rewrap them put them under the tree for himself hahahaha

  • I have done. I have also been regifted presents – one was a toaster that when I opened t had a little note with a $100 bunnings voucher that said “haha as if I really thought you wanted a toaster” & was addressed to the person who gifted me the toaster -lol

  • No. But I’ve received regifted… It was a present I gave them too! Felt terrible. Because it was my mum. She regifts so much she looses track of what people have given her. I now don’t bother putting much thought or effort into her gift.

  • Yes

  • Yes, I would rather it go to someone who will love it than just sit in my cupboard

  • Not sure but I wouldn’t mean to I do think I have
