Many people do it, nobody talks about. In this quick how-to, we explore the art of regifting. Choosing a gift is hard, so inevitably everyone at some point will receive a gift if they don't want. The first step, is to not open it. Be sure to keep it in its original packaging, shrinkwrap, and box. Next, decide whether you can keep it for a while; some gifts such as food or fat items, are likely to go bad or go out of style. These you need to get rid of as fast as possible. Otherwise, you could just wait until your mother-in-law is having a birthday or anniversary, and then mail them a very thoughtful gift -- ideally if they don't know anything about the original gift you received. It especially helps if they live in another state. "How thoughtful! I've always wanted a snowman statue inside of a snow globe!" they will say. It's probably best to get rid of the stuff as quickly as possible, so you don't accumulate unopened stuff that you don't want in your living area. Indeed, you might wrap it up again as soon as you receive it, as a reminder to yourself to regift it as soon as possible.
