#2. REGIFT SHAMELESSLY
Did your boss forget you’re a beer-swilling manly man and give you an expensive bottle of champagne for the holidays? Unless you’re a uncontrollable booze hound, regift it. Squirreling away anything that remotely seems giftable may seem cheap, but it’s also smart — especially for the obligatory occasions where everyone expects you to give a gift but not one that’s too cool or unique.

From unused gift cards to stuff you kind of want but never took out of the package, your regifting skills will allow you to live up to those low expectations.
