A survey from Kijiji.com reveals that 59% of consumers keep unwanted gifts for two reasons: (1) they don't want to upset the gift giver and (2) for sentimental reasons. Other findings:

- 33% of people keep unwanted gifts because returning them is a hassle.

- 28% of people regifted this holiday season.

- more women (33%) than men (23%) regifted.

I admit it. I sometimes keep gifts due to guilt.  My belief is it's the thought that counts.
