Zodiac Signs Ranked Most To Least Likely To Re-Gift Your Presents

Are you one of the sneaky ones?

Zodiac Signs Most To Least Likely To Regift Your Presents getty

Regifting presents is kinda uncool, but depending on what your horoscope says about you, you may not really care that much.

Of course, I'm not saying every time you open a gift from your BFF during the holiday season you say to yourself, "Oh man, I can't wait to wrap this puppy up and give it to my coworker for Secret Santa next week!"

(And, for the love of all that is cute and fluffy, I hope you don't say that about an actual puppy, if you were lucky enough to be gifted one.)


I'm just saying that we all receive some holiday gifts that are less than appealing. Chances are, if you don't regift them, they'll end up sitting in the back of your closet or car gathering dust until the end of time.

So, in a way, regifting can be a more environment-friendly and compassionate option for your unwanted gifts.

The problem is that regifting can still make you look like a jerk, and here's why. When you regift a present, it's kind of like saying to your best friend or your sweet little grandma, "Thanks and all, but I am NEVER going to wear this shirt with all those frills." Even if you really won't ever wear it, regifting it is like throwing their present in the trash.

Hey, I get it. Gift-giving can be really hard.

And the longer you wait to shop, the slimmer your chances are that you'll find something really great for that special person in your life.


And maybe your other best friend or you sweet little grandma on your other parent's side happens to adore frilly shirts! But even if that's the case, the person who gave it you was trying to be nice to YOU. They might have spent a lot of time trying to figure out what you like, or they may really have thought you would look fantastic in a shirt with frills.


If you are going to pass the present along to someone else, you're going to want to be careful and avoid doing something like simply tossing it in a gift bag and giving it to the next person you're planning to see. That won't make you seem like the wonderful person you are.

Although regifting may come across as pretty rude in some circumstances, a few of the zodiac signs do have it down to a science

Some of them would never regift a present in a million years, and other horoscope signs will only do it if they feel like they have no choice. Then there are those zodiac signs that will regift something in a heartbeat just because it's not the right color, brand or style.


And those are the zodiac signs you should shun until they apologize... Kidding!

No matter what your stance is on regifting presents, you will inevitably know someone who does it. Let's just hope that this year you aren't on the receiving end of the same present you gave someone last year! That could get awkward.


In the meantime, here are the zodiac signs ranked most to least likely to regift your presents, based on astrology.


1. LEO (July 23 - August 22)

What do you get the person who has everything? Apparently nothing, because she’ll just end up re-gifting it anyway. At least, if you’re talking about Leo, she will.


It’s not that Leo hates whatever you’ve given her or anything like that. It’s just that there’s a really good chance she already has what you’re planning on presenting her with. She’s that worldly friend who’s done it all and seen it all, and who, clearly, has it all.

When Leo regifts something, she always makes sure it wasn’t handmade or more important than just any old gift. The last thing she wants to do is look like a jerk because you got her something meaningful.

If it’s another trendy necklace or machine-knit sweater, she’ll most likely regift it, but don’t worry too much. She’ll make sure you’re not the recipient of any of her regifts, especially not one you gave her in the first place.

2. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Gemini will regift your presents often and won’t even feel that bad about it — probably. It’s just that she wants something very specific and when she doesn’t get it, she realizes she should have just gone shopping on her own and treated herself. But hey, you can’t win ‘em all, right? So, what is a girl to do? Regift presents, duh.

Of course, there are times when Gemini will just return your gift and get something else or exchange it for the color she specifically asked you for, thank you very much.


But chances are she’ll just regift it and call it a day. When she isn’t regifting because you didn’t get her the Apple watch she wanted, Gemini is regifting because a Fitbit watch is still a pretty good gift to give, and now she doesn't have to pay a dime to do so!

​3. ARIES (March 21 - April 19)


Aries tries not to regift your presents, she really does, but sometimes she just can’t help it. She appreciates you getting her a pair of furry boots that went out of style five years ago, and she loves you even more after seeing how excited you got when she opened them, but the only thing with fur she truly wants in her closet is a gorgeous Rihanna-inspired faux-fur coat.

So, when she does regift (which, I promise, won't be that often), it’s only because she doesn’t want the present she received, and rather than break your heart by asking you to take it back, she figures she'll just keep it until next year and give it to someone else.

Aries realizes this is kind of uncool, but she’d rather regift than let your present gather dust in her closet.

4. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 19)

Sagittarius realizes how frustrating it can be when she replies “nothing” every time you ask her what kind of gift she wants, but she really does have a good reason for refusing gifts. She may sound like a bit of a hippy when she explains herself, but Sagittarius really does not want material things. She’d rather you take her out for a nice lunch or get her tipsy on cranberry and vodkas, to be honest.

Of course, she knows just as well as everyone else that saying she doesn’t want gifts doesn’t work with all of her friends and family, no matter how well they know her.


Try as she might to keep the cheese and breadboard you bought her, she just doesn’t have any use for it in her typical, millennial kitchen. So, while she is guilty of regifting, she always tries to give your presents to people who will actually appreciate them.

5. AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarius understands that gift-giving is something her friends and family do to show her how much they love her and know her, but try as they might, even her closest peeps sometimes still miss the mark. And what is a girl to do when she can barely keep her fake smile on long enough to say thank you? Regift, of course! 


Aquarius doesn’t regift willy-nilly, but she will if she knows for certain that she’ll never use your present. She loves that you remembered her favorite color, but in all honesty, there's really no use for hot pink roller blades in 2017. Luckily for everyone, Aquarius knows that her local donation center is always accepting gifts.

So, while Aquarius feels a little guilty for regifting your presents, she makes herself feel better by giving them good homes, especially when she donates them to those in need.

6. SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)


Whenever Scorpio gets a gift from her friends and family, she treasures it and says thank you with that dazzling smile of hers. But no one is perfect, as much as Scorpio tries to be, and she believes regifting is just a fact of life.

That said, she only regifts in the direst of circumstances, like when the thing you’ve given her just really, really isn’t her style.

Scorpio is interesting, though. While your present might have made her cringe a bit inside, she still feels bad about getting rid of a gift that obviously meant a lot to you to give her.

She doesn't feel quite as bad about it if it wasn’t personalized or expensive, but when if it was, she'd rather just put it in the corner of her room or closet, where it will eventually be forgotten about by both of you.

7. LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Libra doesn’t like regifting… usually. But does she have a perfect memory? No. No she does not. So, while she may have remembered hating your present from three years ago, she certainly doesn’t mind giving her coworker the beautifully-retro fanny pack she found at the back of her closet this year.


Oh, wait. Now, she remembers. Too late, though. She’ll only remember after she remembers you work with her, too. Damn.

Needless to say, you can almost guarantee that if this scenario happens with your favorite Libra, she’s also mouthing a dramatic “Sorrryyyy” to you from across the office.

Like I said, re-gifting isn’t Libra’s thing, but being frugal is, so she’s really just trying to save her money for something more fun. Which will now be an expensive dinner for you in order to make up for regifting your present... right in front of you.

8. TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus doesn’t regift presents, no matter who they’re from. It makes her feel like a bad friend, and the last thing she wants is to be known as a bad friend or a bad person, for that matter. So, she suffers through your presents just to make you happy.

Or maybe she actually likes your present. That isn’t going to stop her from losing it three days later, only to be rediscovered eight months from now. 


If Taurus were ever faced with the opportunity to regift something, especially if she can’t ever see herself using or liking your present, she'd rather just throw it away. Obviously, she isn’t going to throw away something expensive, but you get what I mean. It’s still kind of a jerk move, but unless you go through her trash, you won’t ever know exactly what she’s done with anything you give her. Oh well.

9. CAPRICORN (December 20 - January 19)


Capricorn loves presents and she loves them from everyone, no matter how close you are to her. And on top of that, she will keep every present she’s ever been given — and actually use them, too. Crazy, right? And no, she isn’t a hoarder.

Her main thing is to make sure you feel good about giving her a present rather than her throwing a fit for not liking her gift. Plus, Capricorn is very practical. If you stick with presents she can actually get some use out of, she’ll most definitely keep it.

One of those rolling grocery cart thing isn’t really her style, but when you live in the city, it certainly becomes handy to have your hands free! So, by that logic, Capricorn will keep it, even if it does make her look like a little old lady as she makes her way back from the store.

10. PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

For Pisces, it doesn’t really matter what you give her because all she cares about is that you were thoughtful enough to think of her. Of course, it certainly does help if you get her something she actually wants, but even if you don’t, she’s still genuinely touched.


And being the amazing friend that she is, she’ll never ever tell you that she hates your presents. Regift is a four-letter word to Pisces. She finds it rude and kind of mean to regift presents, even if they are kind of weird and useless.

Of course, she may try to change her tactic next year by suggesting you exchange lists for better presents, but even then, she isn’t one to let you know you messed up. If she only uses your gift once, that’s good enough for her, because at least she can be honest when she tells you she used it.

11. CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancer is a sentimental person, which means that not only will she never regift your presents to her, she’ll amazingly still have them around to show you when you help her move to a new apartment years from now. She’ll most likely gasp and ask if you remember when you gave it to her, proving how kind-hearted and sweet she really is. Not only does Cancer not regift presents from you or anyone else, she probably doesn’t even have the word “regift” in her vocabulary.


She tries her hardest to be the nicest friend anyone could ever ask for and regifting certainly won't earn her that title. She obviously won’t love every present you give her, but her dedication to you as a friend is more important than any gift she could ever receive.

12. VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)


Virgo feels like being a good friend means taking the bad with the good, whether that means bad times with good times or bad presents with good ones.

Either way, regifting is a BIG no-no, simply because it’s not what good friends do. And yes, that even pertains to presents from co-workers and acquaintances. The reason Virgo doesn’t ever regift, aside from wanting to be a good friend, is that she believes it’s the thought that counts.

If she mentions one time that she likes cats and you get her a cat sweater that makes her skin itch like crazy, she’ll still smile and thank you because she’s touched you remembered that she’s a cat person. She may not be as hardcore as you assumed, but still, it’s a thoughtful gift.
