Unwanted Holiday Gifts? This App Will Find a 'Partner' for Them, Tinder-Style

Now Londoners Can Find Local Recipients for Those Gifts They Can't Stand

Finding a home for unwanted holiday gifts is one of the least enjoyable January activities (along with taking down the tree and starting the diet). So creative studio Rehabstudio has created an app that lets Londoners find local people who might really want their unwanted gift. Inspired by Tinder, the Regifter app lets users swipe right if they like the gift and left if they don't. Once they've found a match in their local area, they can meet and swap in person or arrange a delivery. If users don't find a match, the app offers a "Donate to charity" option, locating the nearest charity shop for drop off.

Rehabstudio hopes the app will take the stigma out of regifting as well as reduce domestic waste. It's currently in beta and only available for Londoners, but it's also open source and if it proves successful, Rehabstudio aims to donate it to Freecycle.
