Regifting is about to get a makeover. As Maria Popova of Brain Pickings writes: "What if we could pass that stuff we don't really want or need along to someone who might? What if we could normalize regifting, remove the guilt that bedevils it, and bake it into the gift-giving process from the get-go as an open and beautiful expression of honesty?"
Her solution? The Brain Pickings Regifting API — a free set of tools that aim to remove the social stigma from regifting. Use them to let your loved ones know that you openly endorse regifting and are "encouraging them to pay your gift forward if there's someone in their lives better suited for it than themselves." What a great idea!
The set of tools includes a regifting icon, pattern, and stencil stamp, all available as free, shareable downloads under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial (CC BY-NC) license, which means you can use, remix, and share with attribution for non-commercial purposes. Then print or stamp the graphics on your own wrapping paper or greeting card and spread the word!
