    What do I do with unwanted/unneeded gifts? Hmm…first, I hang onto them far too long, wanting to honor the spirit in which they were given. Then, I realize that keeping something we don’t want/need really doesn’t do that. At that point, it’s too late for return, so I usually donate it to a non-profit.

    Luckily, I didn’t receive any such gifts this year (another benefit of cutting back on gift exchanges!) so I can skip that whole process. :-) Love your suggestions–and I completely agree with #3.

    I’m not comfortable with the idea of re-gifting. I usually ask someone else if they would want the item (I received 2 boxes of herbal tea a week ago–but I hate herbal tea–so I found a friend who likes it. Tada!). Now I just have 3 smallish bottles of scented lotion to bestow upon someone (scented lotions and soaps don’t do my eczema any favors). I really like your first comment–a thank-you is definitely the place to start!
