It's definitely OK to regift. For example, I don't love chocolate, but sometimes I get chocolates as presents. When I pass those presents along, my chocolate-loving friends get to enjoy a treat, and I don’t feel guilty about wasting food. If you really feel bad about regifting, you could tell the person who gave you the gift. You could say something like, “Thank you so much. It’s not my favorite, but I gave it to my friend and she loved it.” The person who gave you the gift might appreciate your honesty. Plus, they might get you something you actually like in the future. Or you could just say, “Thank you so much” and leave it at that. Either way, there's no need to feel bad for regifting something that could make someone else happy.
