Are you not sure what to do with all those unwanted holiday gifts this Christmas season? Do you receive the same sweater every year from your aunt who lives out of state and still thinks your children are two years old? Or are you blessed with grandma’s famous fruitcake every year, and you just can’t handle eating another slice? If you have one or more of these common holiday problems, there is a solution. Don’t get stuck with a pile of gifts you will never use, consider re-gifting or reselling those ‘lovely’ unwanted holiday gifts.
Re-gifting is a very common solution for the unwanted holiday gifts you receive. Instead of boxing the unwanted gift up in a box and stuffing it in the top of your closet with the ones from the past, rewrap the gift and pass it along to someone else. Unwanted holiday gifts are great for friends, a co-worker or acquaintances throughout the year. If you know someone with the birthday coming up, rewrap that unwanted gift in birthday wrapping and give it to the birthday boy or girl. This is also a great way to save money. There is no need to go out and spend money on a gift when you already have one hid in the top of your closet.
Another great idea for re-gifting is, load all those gifts up and deliver them to someone in your town who is in need. If you know a family or friend who is having a hard time during the holiday season, give them any of the unwanted gifts you received. Even though it might not have been the right gift for you, it might just be what someone has been looking for, but just couldn’t get.
Visit a local hospital, homeless shelter, or nursing home. These are places with residents who might not have any family left to receive a gift from during the holidays. Brighten someone’s day with a gift this holiday. The best gift you could give someone is a friendly smile and a surprise they didn’t know was coming. Let others relive the gift giving experience, visit one or more of these places and give them those unwanted holiday gifts you received this year, it might just make a difference.
If you’re not sure re-gifting is right for you, why not try reselling. This has become a very popular way to find a home for all those unwanted holiday gifts. You can go on line and register for an account through e-bay and auction off these gifts, and put a little money in your pocket while doing so. If e-bay is not quite what you are looking for, go on line and do a search for on line auctions. There are several out there in cyber space. Do some research and find the one that works for you.
You can also go on line and create your own website. This is a great idea if you already have a price in mind for what you want to sell your unwanted gifts for. There are a variety of sites that are free, but there are some that charge a fee. Log on and find the right sight for you. You can set up your site to accept pay pal, credit and debit cards and much more. If this sounds like what you have been looking for, don’t delay, surf the internet and find the right website for reselling those unwanted holiday gifts.
Don’t be like the majority of us and open your bedroom closet and get knocked over with all those gifts. Consider re-gifting or reselling this holiday season. It might just be the perfect solution you have been looking for, as well as, making another person’s holiday wish come true.
