A few anonymous re-gifting stories:
“M” from Scarsdale: “I tried re-gifting a sweater given to me by my mother to a neighbor. She realized it months later while visiting and seeing my neighbor walking to his car.”
“K” from Harrison: “I was given two of the same books one year, one from a friend and another from my husband, so I mailed the extra one to a relative. I didn’t think either would notice—until the two of them spoke on the phone weeks later about how they thought I was enjoying the book they both bought me.”
