If you have Christmas gifts you never got around to returning—or that you’ve belatedly decided you don’t actually need—don’t let them collect dust in the closet. Instead, see if you can donate them via the website, thegivingeffect.com, an organization that partners with charities across the nation that need material goods—from books and toys to kitchen gadgets to gift cards. (Thanks to the Wall Street Journal for bringing it to our attention.)
Just type in your zip code to find organizations near you that need your stuff. It’s one type of re-gifting that’s definitely socially acceptable.
