Re-gifting takes place when a gift recepient doesn't really like what they received. However, they don't want to be rude, so they accept the gift and eventually re-wrap it and give it to someone else. Re-gifting is perfectly fine, but there are some basic rules that should be followed so the new recpient can actually like their gift.
There are also common questions that many ask when it comes to re-gifting:
In some cases, it is actually better to mention it to them, because if they wish to get you a gift too, they can buy something of equal value.
A white elephant party is perfect way to avoid feeling horrible for re-gifting, because that is actually the point of a white elephant party. Of course, don't wrap and give away a gift that a person who is also attending the party gave to you.
Overall, re-gifting is actually a great way to save money and give gifts that don't really fit your needs or taste.
