I can't wait to open these presents. Okay. You never know you're going to get again and again and again. Apparently, a study says, that 83% of people think it's just fine to regift. And so do we, apparently, right? We all do? There's a few rules you should know. You should only regift unused presents. Rewrap to freshen the gift up. And only give something that your giftee can actually use. Right here, we have -- uh-oh. Can you take your name tag off when you give it to them? I'm pretty sure, yes. There's five types of presents that are most often regifted. They may not be perfect for us. But we're going to make them perfect at this moment. And we're going to be very happy. I'm going to start with sam. Sam, this might require a bit of an explanation. Why don't you go ahead and start opening that. I can't wait to see what it is. Sam is a winner of many a competition.

This is nice. I can use it as a jacket. And amy can use it as a tent. The rest of us can use it as a car cover. All right. Yeah, here. Rachel, I actually don't know what this was. I literally -- I switched the names. I know. Okay. Whoops. Clearly. Oh. Just what I always wanted. That's lovely. Fantastic. You're welcome. I shall be regifting this for sam. You can wear it with a belt. We don't have much time. 195 kids at your home. Actually, thank you. This will be devoured in a little bit. That's good. I'll trade you. No thank you. This is one I want. Amy has a lot of children at the house right now. I want them to be hopped up on sugar. And the last thing -- I'm sharing the wealth. Thank you so much. I like the day-after christmas regifting idea.
