Regifter? You're not alone

Who hasn’t regifted?

A poll conducted by survey.com for eBay finds that 64% of US Internet users have given their unwanted gifts to others (“regifted”), while 20% have sold unwanted gifts over the Internet.

eBay attempts to put a good spin on it: “Practically everyone gets gifts they just don’t want — and it’s better to turn them into something useful than to throw them in a closet,” says eBay’s Jim Griffith. “By selling unwanted gifts online people can avoid the potential regifting embarrassment, and best of all, buyers can find some amazing deals from sellers who paid nothing for their gifts.” [via: eMarketer Daily]

Call me a scrooge if you must, but personally I think Christmas is a little ridiculous for adults. We all already have so much stuff – why do we need more? The nuttiest thing is gift cards because I essentially have to use the amount of the gift card to buy the sender a gift.

I watched an Oprah show where etiquette experts said that regifting is an absolute no, no – however at the same time all the Oprah financial experts are telling us to conserve cash.

You could be out in the open about it and have a regifting party.

So what do you think? Regifting is OK or very rude?
