Before I was in real estate, I was in retail. I'm not sure if that has had any influence but I rarely return,  maybe exchange and have regifted as I deem "appropriate" .

I will return and exchange - sometimes they may not have my size and I'll have to get something else! LOL

Seriously, that hasn't happened in years. No re-gifting here either!

As Michael Jacobs  would say : "well it depends"... seriously re-gifting is good some times... other times it is just a donation to the Rescue Organizations for their Fundraiser Sales...never a return...
