Survey finds 'regifting' of holiday presents is widespread

RP news wires, Noria Corporation

A recent survey commissioned by The Patron Spirits Company, importers and marketers of ultra-premium Patron tequila, has found that 68 percent of people claim they've regifted, or considered regifting, a holiday present.


Regifting is defined as the act of taking a gift that has been received and giving it to somebody else, sometimes in the guise of a new gift.


The national poll, conducted among 1,040 adults ages 21 and older by Russell Research in late October, also revealed that co-workers are the most common recipients of regifted gifts, followed by family members and service providers (such as mail carriers, home maintenance people, etc.).


Patron's holiday gift-giving survey also asked people what they believe is the most common reason for a person to give a bad gift (those that might end up in the regifting pile). The majority of respondents cited "lack of creativity" as the key reason for giving poor gifts, followed by "procrastination."
