Some people spend MONTHS planning the PERFECT gift for friends and family . . . and other people wait until the day before, when the person says, “I’d like an air fryer.” And then they buy them an air fryer.
And guess which gift gets the most use.
A new survey has found that the average person gets SEVEN gifts a year that they NEVER use. And the WORST gift givers are usually: Friends, children, and coworkers.
26% of people say they donate unwanted gifts to charity . . . and 18% consider re-wrapping it and giving it to someone else.
(You don’t have to officially re-gift it . . . but passing gifts on to someone who CAN use them should be normalized. I know it can be awkward, but it’s silly to keep something that you don’t want, just because it was a gift.)
The survey also produced a list of the “worst gifts to receive,” and some people ARE really terrible at gift-giving.
It includes: Bad romance novels . . . a diet plan . . . a car manual (???) . . . children’s toys . . . cufflinks . . . ties . . . movies you’ve already seen . . . maps of the U.S. . . . cleaning products . . . joke books . . .
A mousepad . . . an apron . . . a scarf . . . “chocolate coins” . . . calendars . . . anti-aging products . . . potpourri . . . crossword books . . . picture frames . . . perfume . . . a mug . . . and “a bottle of booze.”
