Poll: Garden State likes to re-gift

TRENTON, N.J. - December 20, 2010

A Fairleigh Dickinson University poll shows 38 percent of those surveyed say they re-gift. However, 72 percent say they do it just "once in a while."

One in five admit doing it "sometimes" and just a handful, or 8 percent, of the re-gifters say they do it regularly.

The majority of re-gifters say they do it primarily because the gift is better suited for someone else.

Only 10 percent of those polled say they plan to re-gift this year.

The poll of 601 adults was conducted Nov. 15 through Nov. 21 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.
