Home / Cabaïa Blog / What to do with a bad gift?

Help! I had a bad gift!

"Aww, you shouldn't have..." That's what you say when you open the gift from your uncle Bob. Have you already experienced that feeling facing a bad gift? Take a deep breath, we have solutions for you.

"It's the thought that counts..."

Oh, really? We don't know about you, but we think that this mug, for the 10th year in a row, starts to look more like a curse than a sweet attention. Besides, as we at Cabaïa are experts in bad gifts, we judged that a gift was a failure if (several possible answers) :

1) It is REALLY useless

2) It is not eco-friendly

3) We already have 4 copies of it

Do we have to throw it away then?

Of course not! As you know, at Cabaïa, we hate to throw things away. Nothing worse than an object with a short life cycle! So we suggest these 4 solutions instead 👇

Solution #1 : give it away

You don't like your gift, but others may like it! Ask around: there are surely associations that will gladly take your donation. Don't hesitate to ask your town hall, which will certainly have some good addresses for you! You can also make a donation between individuals thanks to apps or special websites 👀.

Solution #2: Upcycle it


What if we told you that an ugly mug could be transformed into a pretty vase once repainted? The cushion with the dubious pattern that your cousin gave you can easily be covered with a pretty home-made cover. And that old shirt? A quick snip of the scissors and you can turn it into your favorite shirt of the year. Head over to Pinterest to stock up on great ideas!

Solution #3 : Cabaïa


Yep, we know you're probably thinking that we are big-headed, but I swear we are not! Santabaïa, our model employee and future Santa Claus, has decided that the time for bad presents is over. Write to her and she'll make it right. For each gift that you report, you'll get a surprise. And there's a €100 voucher to be won every day until December 30th! See you here!

Solution #4: better safe than sorry!

To avoid last minute gifts found on the shelves just before the checkout, make a wishlist with your loved ones. You can also make a Secret Santa among yourselves: 1 gift per person, you are sure to be dedicated! And then, do yourself a favor: tell Uncle Bob that his gifts suck. I promise, you'll feel so much better.

Bonus solution: gift it


And to go further, give it to the person who gave it to you in the first place. But don't say the idea comes from us 🤫

We hope this little list helped you know what to do with that box of crappy gifts that's been sitting in the back of your closet!

And if you think you've never received a bad gift, it's probably because you're the uncle Bob who gives bad gifts.

See you next year!
