It'll Be Coming Around Da Mountain

Anoddah Christmas has come and gone and presents, if you got any, have been ripped open and put either in da keep pile or da return pile but have you evah been da receiver of a re-gifter?

I'll shyly admit I've re-gifted (yeah, yeah, Wassup Wit Dat!) but nevah a "real" gift. It's always been re-gifted as a grab bag gift and only food - not homemade but store bought - and das as far as I've gone. I've always included something else in da grab bag - cause my conscience stay kicking my okole - but food - as long as it's not expired - can/should be passed around until someone will take it..... right?

Eh, no make li'dat cause you do same thing. No believe me? Wat about all da "leftovah snacks" you bring to da office? You just re-gifted..... but at least mine's was wrapped pretty. :lol: :lol: LOL

C'mon, admit it, we've all received gifts and frowned on a few immediately tinking who da next "recipient" will be so no make eh. Come to think of it, one of da tale tale signs of re-gifting is obviously no receipt for return BUT da "safest" way to do dat is only with food cause really, who going return food even if you had a receipt?

Have you evah re-gifted? Well, not like you going admit it but was it to get rid of it or did you tink da person would actually enjoy it? Or maaaaaaybe..... subconsciously you nevah like da person so it no mattah if it's re-gifted? :evil: Just trying to be devil's advocate. :cool:

Da Keiki opened a present a few days ago and while it was a great present, we already had gotten her da exact same thing some time ago hence it being a great present. :wink: If you wrapped a present knowingly without a receipt, you no tink dat da person receiving da gift going tink it was re-gifted? Hmmmm.......

At least you know I can't re-gift da kim chee.

    I never send receipts with gifts so I guess everyone tink I'm re-gifting. Oh wellz.

    Guess we'll catch ya next year on da kim chee - maybe plan it ahead of time & meet up in Nuuanu. I don't have an iphone, so emails have to wait until I get home so das why hard.

    of late we just send from catalog, like fruit cake, and likewise receive stuff like cheese and sausage(figis). sausage too salty so offer to neighbor who accepted gladly. This years had gift(Hawaiianpineapple cake)also from (figis) from someone we do not know,either from mainland or Hawaii. name sound like local. so guess if share gift with others is re-gifting, guilty? Happy that you enjoyed Christmas.

    An Aunty of mine gave me a "Dirt Devil" vacuum cleaner this Christmas. Thing is, she gave me one on a previous Christmas! Does dat count as "re-gifting"?


  6. Kage:

    I re-gift by participating in games and giving them away as prizes. We play Bingo or have an "auction". The auction can get aggressive.

    Uh I have regifted but usually food because I get so many snack things! If I keep them, I'll eat them and be four hundred pounds so I do what you do and put them with other things to make a gift.


  8. Ynaku:

    I accept any food regifting you folks may have. Need my address? :lol:
