NORTHAMPTON, Mass. (WWLP) – Three in four Americans believe that re-gifting is a socially acceptable thing to do.
Western Massachusetts residents told 22News re-gifting something they don’t want isn’t a terrible thing to do. Someone else might get better use out of it.
“If the person would like it then I think it’s fine, but if you know that they really wouldn’t like it then I wouldn’t re-gift it,” said Katie Powers.
“I don’t see anything wrong with it, as long as you say thank you. I mean, they don’t have to know,” said Alexina Aron.
Many people told 22News that, for better or worse, re-gifting has actually become part of our culture.
