We were headed to the Company Christmas party. I was running late, per the usual. My make-up was almost done, my outfit was on, I even had a handful of product I was about to slather into my hair, but I lacked accessories.
Due to the "great recession" we have become increasingly more time crunched and more thoughtful about over-spending. It only makes sense that with these changes in our lives we have also seen a change in our philosophy toward re-gifting.
For as long as people have been receiving gifts, some of those gifts have been regifted. The Magi brought the first Christmas gifts, and while everyone likes gold, I'm pretty certain the frankincense and myrrh were regifted.
