Works for me Wednesday: Regifting parties

I still hang out on a somewhat regular basis (every month or two) with a group of friends I met at my last job. We always try to get together for Christmas, but we don't exchange gifts. With there being 3 of us (plus spouses and a kid now) it would get too expensive.

A few weeks ago as I was making my daily blog rounds I found a great gift idea that we're incorporating into our Christmas party this year - regifting! Our instuctions for our gift exchange was to find two things around the house that you'd like to get rid of (there are three of us getting together). Since there are two guys they are just doing one each.

Scavanging for a piece of to get rid of is a lot of fun. Plus you get the fun and excitement of opening something new (to you).

For other great tips and tricks, head on over to Rocks in my Dryer for Works for Me Wednesday!


  1. Oh my gosh, some of my friends and I did this a couple of years ago as an after-Christmas party to get rid of bad gifts we had gotten (and some of us got some doozies!!). It's so much fun; I think you're going to like it!

  2. Fun idea! My sister always hides a re-gift under the tree for each of us. We get a good laugh over most of the items, then we save them and re-gift them to someone else!

  3. What a fun idea. I have heard of clothes swaps, book swaps, and more. Never have I heard of a bad gift swap. I wonder if fruitcake counts? ;-)


what up yo?
