Regifting Redefined: the Giver’S and the Receiver’S Perspective

This research examines the phenomenon of regifting, giving a gift that one has received to someone else. We develop a consumer-based understanding of regifting, considering the multiple roles consumers may assume in such exchanges. Our findings support the notion that we should contextualize regifting beyond the dyadic gift exchange model.
