Default Second Hand Gifts

Im having trouble wrapping my head around the idea of giving a second hand gift to our kids.
Id like to hear other parent comments. Im not sure where I fall on this issue, but Im definitely leaning so Id like to know how you feel about it.
An example is finding something on an app like Craigslist or Let Go & giving it to your kids as a Christmas gift.
Does a gift have to be new? Do all gifts have to be new? Where do you draw a line in what you want as new?
And of course how to explain this idea, philosophy, POV etc to your kids when everything is highly commercialized.

Thanks for sharing your feelings on this post.
