Regifting Hats Is Against The Law

Hartford York Hats - Women's Fleece Ivy Cap from Wigens - The WynneI spent a pleasant few minutes reading regifting advice and stories today, first at Dumb Little Man and then at After all, who hasn’t passed along one or two of the several fondue sets that proliferate at wedding parties?

My giggles ceased, however, when I realized that some people might in fact think that regifting a hat is acceptable, and I knew it was time to make my stance public.

If you receive a hat as a present and it happens not to be your color, style or size – refrain from wrapping it up again and passing it off at the next gifting opportunity. Be honest and tell your friend or spouse that you would like to exchange it.

More than presenting you with a chance of selecting a great hat, you’re paying a compliment to the person who gave you a hat in the first place. In effect, you’re saying I really want the kind of gift you selected – I just need to choose one I feel most comfortable in and will wear and use for years to come.

Thanks for reading,
