What to Do With Gifts You Don't Want

First, I won't tell anyone if you're looking to drop a gift you recently received! But it's inevitable, sometimes you just get a gift that isn't the right size, style or fit for you.

Don't let it take up space and collect dust on the top shelf of the closet! It's better to 'pay it forward' and give your gift to someone/somewhere who will be able to use or appreciate it better!

  • If you know the store the item came from, return it. Even without a receipt, most stores will at least give you a credit or let you exchange it right then.
  • Give it to a friend or family member.
  • Donate to Goodwill or Salvation Army.
  • Donate gifts (especially toys) to nonprofit organizations like homeless shelters, women's homes, or children's organizations.
  • Sell the item (unless you are worried about the gift-giver seeing it!)
