    what a random gift.  If you have no use for it, it is the holiday season… maybe someone could use it.  I’d give it to the salvation army or goodwill.

    Random.  I would see if someone might need it for the holidays or something.  I had some extra weird stuff a few years ago before the holidays, I posted on CraigsList and someone picked it up in like an hour.  Guess someone had a use for it!

    oooh did she also give you the freebie Bacon Wave and Chop Genie?

    I’m a sucker for infomercial stuff, but never actually buy any of it.

    That is really random. Though, I make deviled eggs all the time for parties and stuff…so I might actually use it. Are you a big salad eater? You could make hard boiled eggs and put them in your salads. LOL…sorry, I’m trying to think of good uses for it. If not, pick the person who does bring deviled eggs to every party and regift it to them!

    If you don’t think you’ll use it, I’d say you might as well donate it.  I don’t generally regift, so that might be the best route.

    On a slightly different note, how great would it be to set up a gift trade board? hcritton suggested a trade and it seems like everyone gets something they don’t want and can’t/won’t return it.

    To answer your question, I thought about Easter eggs but if you don’t have the space for it it does not make sense to keep it.

    Oh man I actually registered for this and was so happy that someone got it!  I love this thing!  But then again, I eat a lot of eggs!  Can you just return it?  If it is unopened, most places will take it back even if you don’t have a receipt.  They will give you in-store credit and you can get something you really want.

    Sounds like she was regifting! No gift receipt + weird guilty behavior = you just got a regift! She might have been thinking of the fact that you make hard-boiled eggs a lot?

    Anyway, no shame in regifting or donating… when I’m giving away an appliance, I like to ask friends if they want it, and then donate it if no one does. (I have some experience at this after my own shower… we got like 5 non-registry appliances, of which we wanted 1!)

    Sell it on ebay or something. She was probably asking you to not send a thank you because maybe its a regift and she felt a little guilty?

    I’d love an egg genie, but if you really don’t need it, just try to sell it!

    hellohellohello has a good point, if it’s unopened you could return it somewhere for maybe instore credit or a gift card.
