How Do You Feel About Regifting?

What do you think?  Do you ever regift?  Do you have no problem passing on a gift that you have no use for?  Have you done it in the past?

I don't have a problem with others doing it, but I think I'd feel too guilty! I've never done it before.

I regift if the chances of the person who gave me the gift finding out are slim.  If I receive something that is not something I will use I decide if it is a gift that I can get away with moving on to a new home.  If so my options are: Return it to the/a store for store credit, selling the item, regifting the item or donating it to a charity. The most important thing is to never regift to anyone who will have a memory of the gift having been given to you.   I would expect my friends and relatives to do the same.  If my original goal was to give a gift the person would like, I can hardly be offended if they decide there is something they would rather have and use the value of my gift as a way to attain it.
