That Ugly Sweater May Not Be The Only Thing Returned After Christmas
I recently read an article from MSN Money about the most returned Christmas gifts. I'm sure you guessed clothes was the top item returned, well, you're right. However, electronics are quickly rising as an item you may need to reconsider gifting to a loved one.
Personally, I'm not surprised more electronics are being returned because I have noticed an increased amount of off brand items at stores like Best Buy, Target and Walmart. I know purchasing off brand isn't always bad but when I want electronics, especially expensive ones, I want a trusted brand. Unfortunately, grandma and grandpa don't think the same way and we get stuck with our Sony Polystation or Nintendo WiWi.
Aside from receiving off brand electronics, I feel like most households are satisfied with the amount of electronics they already have. I have reached a happy place and it's exactly why I haven't been asking for those types of gifts during the holidays. Maybe I'm weird, but I don't need a TV in every room, a robot vacuum or a remote that controls everything in my house.
I'm sure there are other reasons why people are returning their electronics, but I feel like these two reasons cover most people. If you have other thoughts please share in the comments.
