Billy Lowe, a celebrity hair stylist-turned-gift-guru, says that the tacky tradition of regifting has become the same or worse than gag gifting because everyone in the room knows that the present isnt new.
Lowe explains, Usually a hush comes over the room, and everyones looking at the face of the person who just got the gift, waiting to see if hes going to say anything. Honestly, who wants a key chain and blender, all in one?
If regiving gifts presents a problem for you, Lowe recommends treating the lucky people on your list to spa packages or gift certificates.
But theres one sweet gift Lowe says to avoid at all costs.
Lowe says Chocolate covered cherries are the worst regifts! Theyre disgusting, and you know that theyre coming from someone who hates chocolate, thats why theyre a regift.
