I actually do this a lot but when I receive a gift that I know I will never use I make a note of who gave it to me and who all was there when I received it. I have a "gift notebook" just for this. That way I can look back and see if the person that gave me the gift will be at the same place that I plan on regifting their gift to someone else.

If you receive something that you don't want, but you know someone who would love it, there's nothing wrong with it.

And regifting is something I would never do.

I think its tacky if you're actually open about doing it around friends/family getting the gifts.

Makes sense, as long as you don't accidentally give the gift back to the person who originally gave it to you. That would be a major faux pas.

It makes sense, but it's still a bit embarrassing to do

I think it's okay... especially if you're honest about it and don't expect it to replace your normal gift. Kind of like... "Oh hey, I got this cheese grater, but I already have one and I know yours just broke."

I don't regift things, usually I either find someone else who can use the item or donate it to charity.

I don't really like to do it. It makes me feel cheap and ungrateful. But I think the sentiment of finding someone who would love and use whatever it is is nice.

It's horribly tacky. Gifts aren't about the item, they're about the giving.

There's nothing wrong with passing on something you don't want, though, as a hand-me-down.
