So, you’ve officially received gifts from the holiday season, but maybe you aren’t sure if you will keep them. Maybe that ugly Christmas sweater just isn’t your style. Perhaps fruitcake isn’t your thing. Well, it’s officially re-gifting time. In the spirit of fun, we compiled an overview of how you would approach regifting according to your zodiac sign.
Aries-I Didn’t Like It, So I Gave It Away
Never one to beat around the bush, Aries, if you don’t like a gift, you simply don’t like it. While it may not be your intention to hurt anyone’s feelings, you simply don’t see the point of holding onto something that you don’t like. If you can’t return the gift, you’ll just give it to someone else. Even if others see you as insensitive, you don’t see what’s wrong with re-gifting. At least someone else gets some good out of a gift you don’t want.
Taurus, you enjoy materialistic things. So, if you should receive a gift that you don’t want, there’s a good chance that you just keep it anyway simply because it’s yours. You have a tendency of holding onto things even if you won’t use them simply because you want ownership. Although you won’t use that unwanted gift, it’s in your personal storage with all the rest of the items that you’ve accumulated.
Gemini-Something Different Would Be Nice
Gemini, even though you may not want a gift, you won’t ever tell the person to their face. You’ll just give a phony smile and then talk about how bad the gift was when they are not around. You have no issue regifting, and you’ll do it with a whole smile on your face. You don’t like the gift, so what’s the point of keeping it?
Cancer-Gifts Are Sentimental To Me
When it comes to gifts, even if Cancer doesn’t want them, they will likely keep the gifts instead of re-gifting. This is particularly true for gifts that were given to you by family and loved ones. Cancer is a sentimental sign that is the most likely to keep mementos because of the emotional connection. So, even if you don’t like the gift, Cancer you are likely to keep it because someone near and dear to you made the effort to consider you.
Leo-If Ain’t Up To Par, Goodbye
Welp, Leo, if you received a gift that you don’t like, you will let others know. After all, everyone should know by now that as a Leo you have high standards. However, you have no issue with regifting…unless the item is subpar. Why is this? Because Leo is not going to give a gift that makes them look bad.
Virgo-I Only Want Useful Gifts
Virgo, you are a conscientious sign that is quite practical when it comes to everything in your life. When it comes to the holiday season, you aren’t going to go into debt to impress other people. When it comes to gifts, you prefer to give and receive items that are useful. If Virgo should receive something that they believe is impractical, you have no problem discerning such and will simply state the gift is not for you. In fact, you may even ask for the receipt so that you can exchange the gift for something you deem to be more useful.
Libra-The Tacky is Something I’d Rather Not Keep
In an effort to be nice, Libra will never directly state that they dislike a gift because you don’t want to appear to be mean. However, as a Venus-ruled sign, Libra is not going to hold onto a gift that they deem to be gaudy or ugly. Again, Libra doesn’t want to appear to be a “bad guy,” so you will grin and bear the gift to the person’s face while getting rid of it or “misplacing” it on the low to save face.
Scorpio-If You Meant to Give It, I’ll Keep It
Due to your deep, dark nature, Scorpio, you can be very hard to please when it comes to gifting. It really takes a lot to get to know Scorpio on a deeper level to be able to give something that they would really like. If Scorpio doesn’t like a gift, they will be honest because they appreciate that you considered them, and the person went out of their way to give them something. This is a level of intimacy that Scorpio is all about. So, while Scorpio may not like the gift, they will appreciate the consideration.
Sagittarius-Adding It To My Collection
Sagittarius, if you don’t like the gift, your blunt nature will let others know. You could just decide to add the gift to the many doodads that you’ve collected throughout your many lived experiences and travels. If Sagittarius does decide to regift, it’s all about being a blessing to everyone. Sagittarius, you figure if you don’t like a gift, maybe someone else will.
Capricorn-I Appreciate That You Thought of Me
Some would consider Capricorn to be the Scrooge of the holiday season due to your serious nature. When it comes to gifting, you take a serious approach. Capricorn, you don’t really do tacky and/or flashy. You are the type that shows your success through external symbols of success. So, you prefer gifted items that are classy and elegant. If Capricorn should receive a gift that you don’t like they will just respectfully accept it but will never use it. Capricorn takes a mature approach and doesn’t necessarily want to hurt anyone or be disrespectful. However, you will appreciate that you considered them this holiday season.
Aquarius-Looking For Something Unique
As the rebel of the zodiac, Aquarius, you prefer unique gifts that speak to your “far out” nature. If you should receive a gift that you don’t care for, your goal is not to be mean, Aquarius. As the humanitarian of the zodiac, you are always considering and appreciating other people and their special quirks. You understand that everyone has their own way of expressing thanks and care, and even if someone gives you a gift you don’t like, you’ll accept it. Now, if you don’t want to use it, you may choose to drop it off at a local charity donation box to help the rest of humanity.
Pisces-It’s The Thought That Counts, So I’ll Keep It
Pisces, your sign is quite the gift giver due to your compassionate and empathetic nature. However, if you should receive a gift from someone that you don’t like, you are likely to keep it instead of re-gifting. Pisces understands that when someone gives you something they do so from a special place from within themselves. Pisces, you would feel bad regifting an item that someone gave to you with their hard-earned money and/or efforts. In fact, of all the zodiac signs, you are most likely to rock that ugly sweater you don’t like or use that item that you don’t really need to show gratitude to the person who was thoughtful enough to give you a gift.
Overall, this is just a fun overview of how each zodiac sign handles those unwanted gifts from the holiday season. Remember, we are more than just one zodiac sign. Make sure to check your rising and moon signs for more details regarding how you would handle dealing with a gift that you don’t want. If anything, the whole regifting debacle gives light on the importance and the benefits of cash and gift cards so that people can give themselves what they prefer.
We hope you’ve enjoyed all of your goodies from the holiday season. Happy regifting to those of you looking to recycle holiday giving and cheer.
