The Business Etiquette Expert’s Guide To Regifting

So you have now received a ton of gifts. Some were great, some were not so great (because those people didn’t read our Gift Guides probably.) So now has come the time for regifting. But there is a fine art to this, especially when in the business world. We talked with Barbara Pachter, business etiquette expert and author of numerous books, including GREET! EAT! TWEET! 52 Business Etiquette Postings To Avoid Pitfalls & Boost Your Career. “In today’s economy, regifting can be sound fiscal policy,”  she said.  “Why let a perfectly good plant or fruitcake go to waste? Yet, how you regift is important. You always want the receiver of the gift to feel valued.”  Pachter has appeared on national television, including TodayThe Early Show and the news magazine 20/20, and has been featured in major publications such as TIME Magazine,The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal, providing suggestions on professional development and business etiquette. In 2010, NJBiz named her one of the Best 50 Women in Business in New Jersey. Here are Pachter’s seven tips for the business etiquette of regifting.
