ST. LOUIS (KSDK) - Re-gifting can be a social taboo, but what if you're helping a good cause?
Many non-profits say they'd love to get your unwanted items, so before you return, consider donating.
All of the donations are tax-deductible, plus you know they're going to a good cause.
"Someone might get a book they already have and don't want to bring it back to the book store. They may get that Christmas sweater that looks great but ain't the right style. Someone at one of our shelter facilities could use it to stay warm on a cold winter day," said Michael Acaldo with Society of St. Vincent de Paul.
Acaldo also said most charities love receiving gift ft cards because they're able to give them to clients or sell them online.
