(NAPSI)—If you’ve ever regifted an item, you’re not alone. In fact, according to a recent national survey by Bookoo.com, nearly two-thirds of Americans have regifted items, and 92 percent think it’s completely acceptable to do so. While regifting is most popular during the holidays (62 percent), it is a common practice throughout the year with other popular times including: birthdays (58 percent), housewarming gifts (50 percent) and thank you gifts (39 percent).
Not surprisingly, people are least likely to regift during Valentine’s Day (8 percent) and anniversaries (8.5 percent), and they tend to most often regift items to friends (63 percent), neighbors (45 percent) and colleagues (34 percent). And, if you plan to regift, the most widely acceptable regifted items include books and home decor products such as candles or picture frames. Some respondents also shared some odd regifted items they received that you may want to avoid regifting, including half-eaten chocolates, monogrammed items with someone else’s initials, and an outdated desk calendar to name a few.
