Is it really the thought that counts when it comes to unwanted gifts?

The big problem with gifting, especially among adults, is that people don’t often know what the gift recipient wants, needs, or appreciates. And if the gift-givers are pressured by a specific event date (e.g. Christmas), they are prone to make some “interesting” gift choices.

These “interesting” choices not only affect people’s relationships and create clutter in their homes, but unwanted gifts also severely impact other areas of our life.

Let’s look at the true impact of unwanted gifts.
