    I NEVER re-gift, but that's me! We do all homemade gifts...just because we love too. BUT here's a rule breaking idea.
    PUT A LARGE BOW AROUND YOUR FRESHLY LAYED EGGS. (in the carton)
    Last night I went to choir practice. The contetta(?) were doing is extremely difficult. (I'm the token dunce) I wanted to thank the conductor and accompanist sooooo I got some of my very surplus eggs and tied a wire edge, red and white check bow around them... real big and nicely tied. I slipped it onto the bench and stand and walked away. What a hit. I never would of guessed the comments of such a easy gustier. (woops... I'm a bit prideful of my ladies, it was fun to show off their great abilities) Anyway, I love to share them with others and found their to be MANY wanta bee's amongst us. Many of my friends raised chickens as youth and FORGOT they loved it.

    I am the Queen of ReGifting! (or at least Princess or Lady-In-Waiting). If someone gives me something I don't need or won't use, I hang on to it until I meet or see the person it is "actually" for. I carried an amber nugget bracelet around for 5 years until I met the person it was meant for. I feel ReGiftin is the ultimate in recycle/reuse/reduce action.
    But, I digress...
    I Love the idea of gifting eggs for holidays (also as Thank You's and Congratulations gifts).
    At our Halloween Party, the grand prize for costume contest was a dozen of our eggs.
    Thank you for the wonderful idea of gifting our Greatest Treasures, nanawendy!!!

    Brightest Blessings!!!
