Feng shui expert Amanda Collins says regifting around the holidays is permissible in the ancient Chinese art of balance and harmony.
She says feng shui is all about not having clutter in your life so if you really dont love something, regifting it is the way to go.
She explains, Maybe something you dont love will be loved by someone else. As long as its going to a good place, regifting is okay.
But if youre regifting, at least make sure the wrapping is up to par.
Collins says wrapping holiday gifts in red paper is good feng shui because the color represents warmth and fire.
Gold wrapping is also an auspicious way to present a present because itll bring good fortune to the recipient in the new year.
Adding a pretty bow or ribbon brings forth good energy because, as Collins puts it, It shows that love and effort was put into the wrapping.
