Return or Regift?

Through all the holiday parties and dinner spreads, you probably acquired a few gifts that aren’t exactly your vibe. Maybe your aunt got you a sweater that could fit a toddler, or your mom’s best friend thought you’d love a Bigfoot throw pillow. Before you rush to the store to wait in the return line for hours, play the game of Return or Regift?

Return ASAP

  • If you have a gift receipt
  • If you can get cash for it
  • If it’s a quick fix (exchange for another size or style)
  • If it’s from a store you shop at and will use the store credit
  • If it’s nothing you or your friends would ever want

Regift (for a birthday or other holiday)

  • If you can’t return it
  • If you have no idea where it was purchased
  • If you live far away from the store
  • If the item is on sale and you’d only get a fraction of the price back
  • If you know someone who would love it
