When your cubicle mate gifted you a Starbucks mug for your birthday, you smiled. No, it wasn’t because of your coworker’s thoughtful generosity. You were happy that you now had a gift for Grandma Gertrude’s 90th birthday.
Some may call it a problem or an unhealthy obsession, but nope! It’s a gift that keeps on giving: you love to re-gift.
We all enjoy the feeling of not having to buy a gift for the office white elephant exchange, but if you find yourself overstuffing your closets, anxiously awaiting the day you can give away the hand-painted vase your niece made for you, you’re a re-gifter. It’s not like you didn’t appreciate the gift, you just…saw an opportunity to spread the love. And isn’t that what matters in the end, little Patty?
Shopping for gifts is bothersome, anyway. How are you supposed to guess what someone wants? You know that personally, because you only ever get presents you don’t need. Your mom bought you socks last Christmas; your friends bought you appliances for your kitchen; your neighbor gave you a tin of a variety of popcorn. You don’t wear socks, because you’re a Crocs kind of person (we forgive you). You don’t need appliances when you Postmate literally all your meals. And who wants stale popcorn that probably sat in the back of a Ross or Marshalls for two years?! The answer doesn’t matter—it’s what your boss is getting this year.
But each item gained a valuable home in your collection of possible gifts. As someone who has collected for years and years, it actually doesn’t look as messy as it sounds. Your closet is split up into different sections: knick-knacks, kitchen utensils, lounging slippers, and homemade gifts. Homemade gifts are perfect for when you want to make someone think you care, when in reality, you really don’t.
This past year, you received an influx of gifts, from thermoses with a picture of you and a family member to little-gift wrapped packages of Bath and Body Works lotions. You’re set with new gifts for next year! The problem? Well, this year’s Christmas season hasn’t even started and your closet is full. Where are you going to store your new collection of things to give away?
Luckily, you never buy gifts, so you have extra money to get a storage space at StorBox! With a variety of units (like the perfect 5×5 square feet for your treasure) and affordable prices, you can keep your parent’s Christmas and anniversary gifts without having to see them. Maybe you can start hoarding something new in your closet!
