    Take a cue from Santa, it's better to give than to receive.

    A new poll shows New Jerseyans believe in re-gifting, with nearly one in four people passing their packages on to others.

    A Fairleigh Dickinson University poll shows 38 percent of those surveyed say they re-gift. However, 72 percent say they do it just “once in a while.”

    One in five admit doing it “sometimes” and just a handful, or eight percent, of the re-gifters say they do it regularly.

    The majority of re-gifters say they do it primarily because the gift is better suited for someone else.
