Annual Regifting Story Contest is Underway

The 5th Annual Regifting Story Contest is now underway at! Share your regifting stories and videos now through December 31, 2010 for a chance to win prizes valued up to $500.

Even if you don't have a story to share, it's well worth your time to stop by and read the latest entries and vote for your favorite.  While there, you can also battle any holiday blues by browsing some of the more than 1,000 stories submitted to our previous years' contests (they run the gamut from the heartwarming to the horrifying!)  

But more than just stories, it is a forum for all things regifting.  The site offers facts, games (no, I can't reveal Regifting Robin's secret!), personalized gift certificates, regifting party rules, and even a song to regift by!   Whether you're considering regifting for the first time or are a seasoned regifter like me, it's time to make part of your holiday tradition.

Why Regifting?  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.
