Flip Your Gift

Gift expert Simone McDowell of HoneeBee Gifts has come up with a brilliant and fun idea that she hopes will take the shame out of regifting.

She's hosting an event called Flip Your Gift on Jan. 5 at The Ashton, 125 W. Tremont Ave. Guests can bring what she calls a "not-so-perfect-for-you" holiday gift and exchange it for something that suits them better (no gag gifts allowed).

To attend, you must RSVP at

It begins at 11 a.m. when guests will start registering their gifts (all gifts must be registered by 11:45 a.m.) From noon to 1 p.m., there's a gift exchange followed by a chance to mingle and network. Mimosas, wine, light hors d'oeuvres and desserts from Hey Sugar Shop will be served.
