1. Make sure the gift makes sense
Generally, you only want to re-gift items that you would have actually bought for yourself.
2. Don't re-gift things you received from meaningful people
This includes extended family members.
3. Make sure to take off the gift tag
This will save you from the awkwardness of needing to explain why the gift you're re-gifting is actually addressed to you.
4. Re-gift in moderation
This will prevent any hurt that may arise from that one re-gift that was one too many.
5. Be thorough when you re-wrap the gift
Make sure you've removed any notes addressed to you that may have been inside the gift.
