I'm all for regifting and donating unwanted items, but please remember that charities aren't dumping grounds. Just because you don't want a tacky/unsatisfactory/unusable gift doesn't meant they will either. Be just as thoughtful when giving unwanted items to a charity as you would when giving a gift to a friend or family member. You can always inquire with the charity in advance whether or not they can use the item(s) you're seeking to get rid of. Also, keep in mind that many individuals who work at charities are volunteers, and it isn't a very efficient or judicious use of their time to have to sort through tons of unwanted junk just to find what might be useful to them.
