    Have you ever given someone a gift that was for someone else?

    I was broke yet spent the last money I had on someone special.
    I knew if i didn't buy it then, I'd blow that money away on something stupid
    like bills.


    Here I have a few things...

    1. ornament that says "1st christmas love"
    2. From this gay store I bought these charms for a necklace.
    both are simple looking metal charms, on the back they say
    "come together" When you come to kiss your spouse they both
    have magnets that connect each other.


    NOW WTF DO I DO WITH THESE?

    any ideas? I could give them to a couple, or should I save them for another relationship.

    I still have the red heart lion I was gonna give my first bf. My last name is lyons and Im a leo so i got him a big read lion that purs. I made this card myself that something like

    " your love makes this big lion pur, now rub my belly and see what that does"


    Ive had it for three years.
    Should I give that to lol.

    Since we are talking re-gifts, i will put aside the making fun of your squishy squishy heart and feelings. ;)

    I wouldnt regift um... I'd give um to good will or pawn them if they're expensive.

    lol

    I'm a big softy so what....

    Of course I'd tell the people:

    "hey this was for my bo but he ditched me"

    Sometimes I'm way to honest, everyone says I don't have to be truthful all the time. And why the hell not, the truth hurts sometimes.

    Those gifts where nice though, I had some plans for christmas and they fell apart. I

    can't let these go to waste.. I'm sure someone would like them and good will isnt an option

    II can't keep the memories of what didn't work.

    The lion, I think I'll keep him, the purring helps me go to bed at night.icon_twisted.gif

    I have to admit ....

    I am the biggest regifter there is


    ... Does that mean I'm going to a special place in hell that's filled with Jacklyn Smith Products from Kmart?

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO I'd never call you that *whistles casually*

    On the original topic though I never regift, even the most butt ugly thing someone I love gives me is treasured waaaaay to much, I was given these hidious pasta dishes once, I still have them, even after many years and I couldn't bare part with them, even though I've never used them, they take up space and generally looking fuck ugly.. I still wont let them go, god there ugly though.

    Hold on to them until a time comes when a friend is in love and you can give it as a gift to him to give his new boyfriend.
    You can't give it to your next boyfriend since it will not be custom to the relationship.
    You can allow it to make someone else happy in the way you originally intended. This way, the good feelings you had when you bought it will be passed on in the right way and with the original intention of goodwill. In the long run, you will feel good about it.

    For now, just put them away.

    (This worked for me.)

    I remind myself that sometimes I hold onto stuff for far too long. It's good for the soul to give away the stuff that has been with for so long and still has meaning. I think there is beauty in giving away the stuff that is hard to give away.

    It's not re-gifting, it's recycling and it's green. congratulations on helping to recycle all the things we would otherwise stuff into a corner somewhere!

    One reason to hold onto all non-grocery receipts for up to 6 years. Sorry, it's an Accountant thing. Anyways, if you can't take them back, then just ask around if any of your friends need anything for their loves. If you see it gifted yourself - you'll get a good feeling that someone is getting it because they are loved, even if it isn't by you. icon_wink.gif
