National Re-Gifting Day is celebrated annually on Thursday, which comes before Christmas. This year it will be celebrated on December 15. Re-Gifting Day was celebrated in honor of office parties and for the unique Christmas gift exchange. National Re-Gifting Day is the day for all companies to hold their annual company or company Christmas party. Research shows that 40% of office party gifts are re-gifted, which means the gift given to someone is re-gifted to someone without any use.
History of National Re-Gifting Day
On October 24, 2008, Colorado declared “National Re-Gifting Day” in an official proclamation. The state Governor Bill Ritter issued that day. Money Management International made the websites NationalRegifting.com and regiftable.com to give people a way to learn about re-gifting.
Considerations While Re-Gifting:
- Re-Gift only when the recipient enjoys your gift.
- The Gift should be new and must be in its original packing.
- If the gift has some special meaning to the giver, don’t re-gift.
- Don’t re-gift if you aren’t sure about who gave it to you.
- You must be ready to answer questions about that gift like “where did you find it?”, “Who gave it to you?” etc.,
- Be aware of not to Re-gift something to the original giver.
- Remove all the tags from the gift.
- Re-gift only when you are sure the new recipient will not tell the original giver about that gift.
