    1. As an expat and wanna be minimalist, I am superconscious of wastage of resources and my friend’s hard earned money – I have an open conversation with close friends about what I value most and it doesn’t always come in gift wraps. Just experiences – quiet dinners, Corniche walks, surprise bicycle rides, beach, picnic. That saves them guess work too.

    Reply – Those matter the most

    Reply – It’s not always easy to initiate the conversation though, but as I get older it becomes important to live true to oneself and communicate that.

    Reply – I do it sometimes, close people give me their receipt incase I want to exchange it, or some they give me money and I buy something with it. And then I tell that person “look with your money, you got me this!”. Perfumes I usually go to Debenhams and smell first before I open them, because if the smell is strong, I will not able to use it.

    Reply – I would be cautious regifting gifts that came from a person that is close to me. All others I do that occasionally.

    Reply – I don’t like to regift as I feel the person goes out of his or her way to get me something. If I feel I am never going to need it I ask my family members if they will use it or give it someone that’s less fortunate.

    Gifts are valuable to me no matter how cheap it is ! Gifts make me feel appreciated .I SIMPLY ADORE GIFTS mainly when packed 😀
    RegardIng re-gifting, I don’t think it is a bad idea as long as you take the following points into consideration:
    -Re-gifting among the same social circle is definitedly a very bad idea that might bring a lot of headache
    – Re-gifting anything new or in a good condition.
    – When in Doubt, Regift to Charity
