|How do I look in this?|
The kid in all of us loves to get presents - and the kids around us love them even more. So now's a great time to get creative with your imagination instead of your wallet and make your gifts unforgettable.
And it is also a perfect time to sort through what can be regifted.
This is not to everyone's taste, I know, but it can be a real win-win solution. You give, declutter, and save money all at once.
Golden regifting rule
It must look unused.Hand me downs can be used and even look used. Special occasion gifts must play the part.
I have an underbed box with great condition "baby and bigger" clothes saved from my regular purges of outgrown clothes. Due to wrong seasons, too much, or buried, or whatever, I've never had a shortage of great gifts for new parents.
I also have a box of emergency kid gifts. Some gifts are perfect finds from charity shops, some are unused gifts we've received, and some are even retail bargains! Colouring and sticker books are favourites for us to receive, so when the bookstores have sales, I collect lots of handy, light, storeable, fun, recyclable presents at once.
