Every once in a while you’ll get that holiday gift where you wonder, “What was (s)he THINKING?” Or it’ll be from that co-worker who you know wasn’t thinking, period. But there you are, stuck with that apple shaped cigarette lighter or a green scarf with hand painted purple frogs on it. (BTW, the cigarette lighter was a 100% true story – my father [who still smoked at the time] bought my mom one of those for her birthday once. She had quit smoking 4 years previously. No lie! Boy, was she mad, LOL!)
So what can you do with it? It’s not like you can re-gift something as atrocious as that. And throwing it out makes you feel guilty. Well, what if I told you that you could trade that unwanted gift in for your choice of 500 frequent flyer miles or 500 hotel points? Because you can!
