Re-gifting on purpose…

misc 017

My neighbors Bill and Linda gave me a bottle of wine in this incredibly creative gift bag. It is made from old sails by Sea Bags. The gift bags are designed to be re-gifted and to circle the globe. You list the recipient's name and location along with the date the gift was given. I love the bag and the idea of re-gifting and seeing it going onto others…but I am also torn about re-gifting as I love it.

Here is a little about Sea Bags.

Since 1999 we have been making custom tote bags out of recycled sails. Every bag we make has sailed around the world before it even leaves our shop, and we like that.

  • Each bag is designed and inspired from the sail itself and all vary in texture and fabric. All are durable, water resistant and washing-machine friendly.
  • Most of our bags (like most sails) are white or off white Dacron with a colored design on them but we use all sails from canvas to Kevlar.
  • Each Sea Bag has rope handles that are hand-spliced in our shop in Portland, Maine - the splice is a nautical skill and what differentiates a Sea Bag.
  • Sea Bags totes come in small, medium and large and a variety of designs and colors

    Thanks for stopping by Cottage Lifestyle and examiner.com.

    Hi Renee,
    Happy New Year!!!
    Love the sea bag and I would have a hard time passing it on also! It's the first one I've seen and thanks for sharing the story behind it.
    Warmly,

    Good day, sun shines!
    There have been times of hardship when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
    I have never imagined that there weren't any need in large starting capital.
    Now, I'm happy and lucky , I started to get real money.
    It gets down to select a correct partner who uses your money in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, and shares the profit with me.

    You may ask, if there are such firms? I have to answer the truth, YES, there are. Please get to know about one of them:

    Hello everyone!
    I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

    For several years , I earn money with the help of these programs.
    I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
    Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my blog to get additional info.

    yeah, most re-gifting is done because the first recipient wasn't crazy about the gift...that's going to be a hard choice. lol.

    great post!

    What a great concept the re-gift bags are. The rope handles really make it. Yes, I'm sure it would be hard to pass it along. Enjoy it either way.
