truth or dare

well lisa asked me truth or dare so i'm taking the truth. i'm not a risky type. ;)

here's lisa's question...
have you ever "regifted" a present. if you have, tell us what the gift was, who you gave it to and why the gift was passed on to another person. was it a hideous velvet elvis painting? a chia pet? a sweater that was three sizes too large and in a color you'd never wear?

i have regifted before, but for some reason i can only remember one. it's not anything exciting or anything. for a secret santa exchange one year, i received one of those glass jewelry boxes with the dried flowers embedded in it with a slot to slide your photo it. i really don't have much jewelry, i'm not a fan of dried flowers, and at the time i didn't have children so whose picture would i have slid in the top? needless to say i regifted it to my stepmother. well at teh time she wasn't my stepmother. i really didn't know her very well, but we were going to their house for her birthday (which is also adam's birthday) and i didn't have a gift. the jewelry box was still in the box awaiting re-gifting. voila - instant present! she liked it - i guess.
