Is it okay to recycle gifts?
« on: November 06, 2017, 09:38:58 pm »
Hi ladies,

It's almost Christmas. I'd like to ask: Is it okay to recycle gifts? What gift did you receive which you didn't like or need that you also gave away as a gift to a friend?

Some answers will be shared in a Female Network article.

Happy sharing!

Yes especially if you don't need it naman. Just make sure when you recycle the gift, the person who will receive it has dim chances to interact with the person who gave it to you  ;D

yes, just dont forget to check if it still has your name on it or if its personalized. though i cant remember getting a gift i wont use. Mostly kasi i receive food (chocolates/cupcakes/brownies etc...) so of course, i like! hehe...

Yes, it's okay and I don't mind getting a recycled gift. If it's a very good friend, I would probably tell the person that it is a recycled gift. Pag friends kasi wala namang mga ka-dramahan.

Dati I kept everything kasi feeling ko may sentimental value kasi nga gift sya, but since I now live in a studio lang, wala akong paglalagyan ng lahat. Also yung ibang items na madami ako narereceive like generic mugs, tumblers, small towels, cute pillows, etc., I eventually got rid of some din naman anyway kasi hindi nagamit hanggang wala na nang space at luma na tignan. Also, for example, may time na madami nagregalo ng perfume, bath stuff...ayun, syempre tuwa ako so I kept them all kahit yung iba pang-display lang, haha, so andun lang hanggang nag-expire na yung iba.  So sa susunod, pinapamigay ko na lang. Food din na I don't think I'll eat.

Basically anything na I received in excess of and I don't think I will use and yung mukhang matutuwa naman yung pagbibigyan ko, I recycle.

no i will not re-gift something given to me.  if i won't have any use for it,  i'll donate to either goodwill or salvation army.  they can in turn resell it and the proceeds will probably go to the community or groups of individuals they support.

Yes, kesa naman masayang lang, buti nang mapakinabangan ng iba na mas makaka-appreciate.

Depends on the item, if diy i will keep it pero if something na never ko magagamit na something generic, I rather give it to someone na makakagamit.
We don't need more laws, we need implementation.

I've re-gifted clothes (unused) and toys (unopened) that my child received. Any gift made extra special for me, I cherish no matter if it doesn't have any use for me

Okay  lang naman, for as long as the recycled gift will be given to someone who is not in the same clique or group as the giver. Also, sana hindi malagkit na. Okay, will share with you gifts that we have been getting from a Tita na obviously, its a recycled gift na. But please!!  Put some thought into it naman. Do NOT just give! Eversince we were kids we get not just recycled, but.. YUCKY presents!  Yung nangigitata  na sa lagkit!  Fake G SHOCK watch na expired na ata yung goma, so it?s sticky! My 3 niece?s got brush sets from her.. and it?s all old and it smells ugh!! May molds na! Parang  iniimbak nila unwanted gifts and nireregift after some number of Christmas! Naman!! You want the receiver naman to be HAPPY to get your gift di ba? Not to be INFECTED by it! My brothers got facial wash CLEARASIL! Guess what?! It?s 1year EXPIRED!  My nephew when he was born.. got 3 pcs of onesies na pambabae!! To think, they even visited when my sister gave birth, so alam nila malamang yung gender nung baby!
 May nasty stains pa! ( sinuot na ata ng mga anak niya yun!) our aunt has 3 kids ALL FEMALES! So, iniisip namin, hand  me downs!!   Some decades after.. ( our cousins are grown up WOMEN now, binigay na sa mga anak ng mga pamangkin!)  as CHRISTMAS GIFTS!  We would understand it if walang wala talaga sila. But, no!! Well off sila. As in super WELL OFF.

^ super off niyan. tita, wag na po kayo mag abala magbigay please lang, LOL

i think it's okay as long as good condition and hindi naman used na yung gift. i do this lalo na pag doble na receive ng baby ko yung ganun item. Then yung hindi same set sa giver.

Yup, i just did, last Christmas. A friend nag regalo for my son who?s just 21mos. A hoodie size 5t. If i keep it for sure 3years pa bago magamit ni baby. Yuko e keep, we have lots of bins na for sons stuff. Those na nakalakihan na nya i dispose it right away. Drop in thrift stores. Kaya i decided to re-gift it to other friend of friends son who?s present during party, sakto lang sa kanya.

Sa kin personally I don't. I am sentimental like that. Minsan kahit hindi ko naman talaga nagagamit (or wala pang pang gagamitan) i keep most of them. I have a box full of gifts at pa unti unti ko lang nagagalaw / gamit. I keep them even the small cards that come with gifts. But i do give away some of them like mga coin purses or pouches na mas magagamit ng mga tita ko kesa sa kin.

Pero i don't mind if some peope recycle their gifts. Like mga lotions or colognes na bigay sa mother ko pero alam na alam kong hindi naman nya gagamitin, ayun hinihingi ko pang bigay sa iba. lols!
