Thanks to the TV show "Seinfeld". we all know now what regifting is. I don't remember the particular episode, but the whole idea of regifting just sounds Seinfeldian, doesn't it?

I'm going to confess something right here. My name is Gary and I have been a regifter. I can think of two times in my life that I have regifted and both times it worked out for me, so I have no deep rooted guilt about my regifting.

I won't name names here, but one choice bit of regifting came along many years ago. A friend of mine gave me a book by an author I didn't particular like and I regifted it to another friend. Turns out it was the other friend's favorite authors.

The second time I regifted wasn't quite as successful, but I still pulled it off. A friend gave me a sample pack of various pepper sauces which, frankly I like, but since a I rarely cook, I didn't really have much of a chance to try it. I gave it to someone else the following Christmas and they liked it okay, but here's the capper on that story: I'm pretty sure the person who gave it to me was regifting. I have no proof, of course, but this person is a notorious regifter! I rest my case.

Here's the host of "Last Week Tonight", John Oliver, with his guide to regifting.
