The 2009 story contest is underway!

The fourth annual story contest is underway! Regifters from around the nation are invited to share their regifting stories and videos for a chance to win prizes valued up to $500. is a forum for all things regifting, including an archive of more than 1,000 consumer stories running the gamut from the heartwarming to the horrifying. In addition to this year’s regifting story contest, the site also offers a cool game (nope, I am not going to reveal Regifting Robin’s secret!), regifting facts, personalized gift certificates, free eCards, regifting party rules, a song to rewrap by, and much more.

We created to give people a fun way to learn more about regifting, and to start the conversation on a topic many people are reluctant to discuss—holiday spending and financial worries. Holiday gifting this year may be particularly difficult as economic stressors continue to stretch family budgets.
