Do you have trouble deciding what to do with and decluttering excess wedding gifts or that which you haven’t opened or put to use?
No worries, i got you covered with tips and ideas to help you declutter your wedding gifts and create space for more useful items.
Our faces light up with excitement when we receive lots of gifts(we all love gifts, don’t we?) from our wedding guests and we feel loved and appreciated.
Reality check however sets in when we realize we don’t need neither are we going to use most or some of the gifts for reasons such as.
NO FUNCTIONAL USE FOR THEM
TOO BIG FOR OUR LIVING SPACES
and many other reasons
There’s a conflict though of sentiments and guilt feelings for getting rid of gifts you don’t have use for.
Pause and think
Would you rather the gift deteriorate or depreciate than give it away for fear that the person who gifted it to you might discover and be offended?
Would your kitchen space not be better off and more organized without the clutter of unused wedding gifts?
Truth be told, it’s not easy but after it has been gifted to you, it becomes your property, you reserve the sole right to determine what to do with it.
That brings me to to solutions :
1.If they are still in a good condition, regift them.
2. Give out duplicate items to those who you feel might have more use for it than you.
3. Donate to charity
4 Swap: you can organize a swap party with friends with similar dilemma and do an exchange of more functional items
5.sell online on thrift stores or online platforms such as OLX, JIJI, eBay e. t. c
6.Remodel and convert to a more functional use
