Of Re-Gifting

Today, thanks to one of my G+ friends, I found this page, and I think it’s brilliant. I mean, who hasn’t been blessed by a gift that undoubtedly had been picked with some consideration and love, but sadly just didn’t hit the spot?

Usually, it’s seen as fantastically rude to just give that to another person you happen to know will appreciate it fully. Not hide it in their wardrobe (or under the bed, as it may be). Enter stage left: Brainpickings with their fab regifting API:

“Introducing the Brain Pickings Regifting API — a free set of tools that aim to remove the social stigma from regifting, letting your loved ones know that you openly endorse regifting and encouraging them to pay your gift forward if there’s someone in their lives better suited for it than themselves.”

Pop over, good folks, and use it! The offer a set of tools to declare your love of re-gifting. Most excellent, methinks.

Love all things vintage, especially knitting from the victorian era through to the swinging twenties.
