Whether you want to give a second hand gift because it’s a great way to help the environment, or whether it’s because you’re looking to cut back on your spending, there should be nothing stopping you from doing so. But is it ok to give second hand gifts?
When it comes to giving presents, it really is the thought that counts. The purpose of a gift is to show someone that you’re thinking of them and that you are celebrating them. Whether it’s a birthday, Christmas or Mother’s Day gift. So it really doesn’t matter whether that gift is new or second hand.
In fact, a second hand gift could be even more thoughtful than a traditional shop bought present. You often have to search high and low for the perfect present, but usually you’ll end up with something totally unique.
