I am a proud regifter!!

You just have to be savvy enough to not regift the thing to the person who gave it to you initially. Sounds easy enough, but when you've been stashing things in your closet for 12 months, you kind of forget where and who they came from! My theory is that it's better those gifts go to someone else who might actually use and appreciate them than to sit unused in my spare bedroom for months on end. And my friends and I usually have a Chinese gift exchange around the holidays, and that's an absolutely perfect opportunity for everyone to get rid of those types of items. And some folks walk away really loving the new item they picked up! "Most plain girls are virtuous because of the scarcity of opportunity to be otherwise." -- Maya Angelou

It's practical, but i do not

It's practical, but i do not do that. I always keep in mind the thought that the giver had on giving the gift to me, and that alone makes the gift a treasure to me. Mind your own business, then you will see the joy coming into your life.

If the package is still presentable...

I re-gift specially those I already have. (like the 5 coffee makers we received as wedding gifts.... LOL!) If the package is broken, I just give it away to anyone who wants/needs it. As they say in recycling: "One man's trash is another man's treasure."
