According to self-proclaimed feng shui diva Robyn Bentley, a lot of popular presents like wallets and wristwatches give off an aura of bad luck.
Bentley says giving wallets and purses can be unlucky unless theres a small amount of cash in them and gifts of clocks and watches symbolizes that the recipient is running out of time.
Meanwhile, giving knives, scissors and letter openers as presents symbolize that youd like to sever the relationship with the person receiving the gift.
Handkerchiefs mean you expect that person to be crying a lot, either from sadness or sheer frustration.
Finally, Bentley says the only time when you should re- gift is if the package gave you bad luck that you want to palm off on someone else. Otherwise, it means you are giving away the relationship you have with the person who gave you the gift.
