So a couple of days ago, we were just talking about the "re-gifting" subject!  Lots of people do it for various reasons.  Some people even do it because they are short a gift or two.

So we had our office Christmas Party last week and I saw someone pick they gift that they brought to the party!  Silly me, I thought it was strange but it actually more common than I thought!  A poll of 2,000 people found 46% of us wish we could just pick out our own Christmas gifts, so we know that we'd actually use them.

The survey also asked people about stuff they've re-gifted, returned or threw away and WHY they did it.  Here are the top ten reasons . . .

 

 

1.  I just didn't like the gift.

2.  I couldn't use it in time.  (gift cards, etc..)

3.  I already owned one.

4.  I liked the gift, but thought someone else would like it more.

5.  I got too many of them.

6.  I re-gifted to save money on someone else's gift.

7.  It didn't fit.  So that one's mostly about clothing.

8.  I used it as an emergency gift after I forgot to get someone a present.

9.  I didn't have space for it.

10.  I got rid of it out of SPITE, because I didn't like the person who gave it to them

Who in your family is the worst at re-gifting?
