National Regifting Day goes legit'

In honor of holiday office parties and the “unique” gifts exchanged at them, the creators of (that would be us) have declared today to be National Regifting Day.

This date is particularly appropriate since, according to our unscientific research, the third Thursday of December it is the most common day for a holiday office party. And, according to our very scientific research, 4 in 10 regifters (41%) target coworkers as the recipients of their regifts.

In case you aren’t sure whether or not National Regifting Day is a “real” holiday, I am pleased to announce that last week’s mail contained a very official looking document. Harris County Commissioner Sylvia Garcia proclaimed December 17 as National Regifting Day! (No, you can’t leave work early!)

Merry Regifting Day!  And don't forget to share your regifting story for a chance to win a $500 Amazon gift card.
