It’s believed that 130 million Americans receive at least one unwanted gift every year, eventually throwing it into the trash. These are perfectly good, perfectly new presents people simply never wanted. If you want to give a gift that is guaranteed not to get tossed, think about experiential over material gifts. Consider everything from edible (dinner or a nice bottle of wine) to events (concert or movie tickets). Even paying off a parking ticket could be a much more appreciated gesture than any wrapped gift.
