National Re-Gifting Day

National Re-Gifting Day is a unique holiday loved by Americans! The point is to present a gift to a person that did not fit, did not like or simply is not needed. It’s so easy to get rid of unnecessary things and please others! We think it’s a great idea!


The TV series “Seinfeld” gave the world the term “Re-gifting”. If you watched the picture, then remember the episode! In practice, donation was used long before the series. They say you shouldn’t give gifts: some consider it cruel and wrong. We consider the situation differently – an object may not be needed by one person, but another is simply necessary! Two win here.

National Day was celebrated until 2008, but only covered office life. Employees of the company mutually made such gestures, and everyone was satisfied. Then the date was celebrated more globally, both housewives and hard workers participated in it.
