The Rules of Regifting

The Rules of Regifting According to Moms!

It's party time — rewrap the present! This is a fairly tempting practice when mom has a stack of goodies in the home from the holidays and some perfectly nice products that are going to be returned anyhow. Whether the giver is short on funds or has duplicate goods, there are parents that pass products from one kiddo to another. We asked moms for their opinions on the practice and here's what they had to say.

  • Who wants to run to the store when there's brand-new loot at home? Sixty-one percent of moms re-wrapped an item and passed it off as an original purchase.
  • Thanks for the regift! Seventy-two percent of moms have been the recipients of a recycled purchase.
  • If you're going to regift, 53 percent of moms say you should be honest with the recipient.
  • When money is tight, some people dig into their own belongings and choose a treasure to present at a party, but 67 percent of moms said finances wasn't their reason for regifting.
  • Some folks won't regift to an adult, but feel comfortable doing so with a child since the kiddo is less likely to return their loot. Other people are comfortable passing off an already-opened present to a family member, but not a friend. Eighty-two percent of moms agreed that regifting isn't all the same.
