Which is more uncomfortable, regifting or returning a gift?
For me returning a gift is definitely more uncomfortable. I hate to return something to a store and then have a credit to spend in a store that I have no intention on spending. I would much rather regift, especially if I know that the gift will be put to good use by the next person.
I regifted two gifts this year and they were good regifts. My neighbors gave me a box of chocolates, which I would have had to eat myself (not good) so I regifted them to my CASA supervisor so she could share them with her colleagues. I also regifted a Kindle book cover that my daughter gave me. I already have one with a light built in that I love. Then I discovered that my sister had received a Kindle for Christmas but needed a cover so I sent the cover to her. She really appreciated it.
Those are two good regiftings and no need to return an unwanted gifts.
