Swap Option: Housewares
How to organize: Anything for the home―appliances, electronics, vases―can be organized according to what room it belongs in. So blenders and colanders go to a section for the kitchen; artwork and throw pillows, the living room; and so on.
What to consider: Think of the party as a guilt-free form of regifting. There’s bound to be someone in the market for a still-in-the-box ice cream maker or a never-been-lit scented candle. Just make sure the person who gave it to you isn’t on the guest list.
