Imagine this: It's your office's holiday party, and everybody's opening up their gifts. One of your coworkers — who had you for the Secret Santa gift exchange — hands you a bag filled with tissue paper. You begin to pull out the tissue paper to reveal an ~interesting~ board game, candle that does not match your color scheme, or perhaps a very ornate Christmas decoration. Instantly, you think of all the hilarious tweets about regifting you saw earlier that day, and how much you can relate.
The truth is, you're pretty sure you know what went down before your coworker handed you that gift bag. Like you, they attended a party and received a gift. They were likely grateful for receiving it, but it's not something they would ever use. So when it came time to needing a present for this exchange, they thought, "Hmm, this is the prime opportunity to regift that book I'll never read, or the casserole dish that's been in my basement, sitting in its box."
Can you blame them? You may have done the same thing to save a little money in your wallet at such an expensive time of year. And hey, why make some brand new items go to waste? That's why — whether you've been the one to regift an item or receive a regift — these tweets are so relatable. They'll give you a good laugh, or knock your festive socks off, if you will.
