I usually just re-wrap the nail varnish that I get each year and give it to someone else.
Either that or my sister!
I think that happened with a present that I've received for Christmas... As it was such a great disappointment, why would I want to spread it to others? If I'm going to give a present, I will only do so for those that I care about - unwanted presents can either be exchanged, tossed into a pile to be sold on eBay or chucked in the bin!
Generally, I get really good gifts, and I'm not all that picky about what I get. But there are one or two presents I get for Christmas that I know I won't use because it's not my taste. However, I don't regift items I've received to close friends or immediate family.
When I do re-gift items, I tend to re-gift them to acquaintances/white elephant events/ secret santa. I tend to do those events at my school, so I don't really see the point in blowing 20 dollars on someone I barely know.
If I never see you use something I gave you, I would never give you a present again. That's my policy.
I have only done this a few times when I have needed a last min present usually a box of chocs that have been unopened for someone that I don't know very well etc.
I have a friend who does this every year to me though and its a bit cringe because its the most random stuff like massive dangly earings I would never wear in a million years, hair curlers in no box, individual toiletries like wilkonsons facewipes, cleansers, hairspray, etc. I do not have the heart to say anything as she is a good friend but it is a bit too obvious sometimes.
It depends. If its stuff that can be donated like clothes, I'd donate it. If it is a cosmetics or jewelry item, which is just not my taste, I give it away to friends. I don't rewrap it though. If they come over, I just say "Hey, I got this a while ago, and it's still new, but I don't think its my color. You can have it if you like." This only works with my friends, because I know this would be something they like/we trade items regularly.
I wouldn't ever do that tbh, seems kinda...harsh. I mean if someone bought me something thinking I'd like it and I just gave it away that'd be pretty hurtful.
No. I just leave them wrapped and then give them to other people.
