Can you regift a gift?

Last week, Wellington hosted one of the biggest movie premieres I’ve ever seen (but I must admit, I haven’t been to too many movie premieres!). I went down to Courtenay Place to check out the action, and was given this wizard’s hat in the hobbit village.

I actually needed a hat at the time, because the sun was beating down quite fiercely, although I had to hold onto the hat quite tightly to stop it blowing off my head in the wind that this city is renowned for.

My question is this. I don’t want the hat. While I will probably go and see The Hobbit at the cinema, I’m not a die hard fan so I feel no need to keep it. Can I gift it to someone for their birthday? I would obviously match it with another present, but is giving a freebie as a birthday present just a bit too cheap? Could it be a nice keepsake from Wellington? Does the fact that some people around the world would kill for this hat make it any better as a present? I’m really undecided! At least it’s quite obvious that this hat was a giveaway, I’m not fooling anyone. Have you ever regifted a gift?
