It’s the time of the year again. November ushers in the holiday gift giving and family gatherings. Putting a list of gifts and purchasing gifts could be a difficult task for most of us who have a large family. And then wondering if your mother in law will like the gifts you take hours standing in line for during Black Friday sales.
Recently I read an interesting article by MSN that 75% of Americans lied about liking a gift. Market Tools took a poll and find the following categories of return goods (in percentages):
• Clothing & shoes (62 percent)
• Toys, games & hobbies (16 percent)
• Consumer electronics (14 percent)
• Kitchen & bath (13 percent)
• Beauty & cosmetics (11 percent)
• Jewelry & watches tied with 10 percent each
What are the chances of someone liking the gift you purchased? Looking at the above percentage, the category to avoid is clothing and shoes.
It gets even more interesting…
Consumer Reports reported 49 million people admit to getting stuck with an awful holiday gift. 18% donated it to charity, 15% re-gifted it to an unsuspecting family member, friend or coworker, 11% returned the item to the retailer for merchandise credit, 11% throw them out and 6% resell them.
Is there a better, fun, affordable or healthier way to gift giving?
