Top 10 Re-gifting Reasons

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.
