As long as it doesn't hold sentimental value, isn't from a close friend or family member, oh, and "it also depends on the gift". There are a lot of rules, but the consensus? It's OK to re-gift.

It would seem many thought it OK, although rules applied. Whereas those who disagreed with the idea thought it was unacceptable in any situation.

Would you pass on a gift to someone else if you didn't want it?
