The Top Ten Reasons for Regifting a Present

A poll of 2,000 people found 46% of us wish we could just pick out our own Christmas gifts, so we’d get stuff we actually want.

 

 

The survey also asked people about stuff they’ve regifted . . . returned . . . or just tossed in the trash, 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.  So that applies to things like gift cards and Groupons.

 

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.  Like if you end up with five boxes of chocolate.

 

6.  I regifted 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 me.
