Re-Gift Mothers Day, Shopping on the Rise and Demi Signs

Re-Gift Your Mother's Day Present -- Little Kids Won't Notice
Did you receive a Mother's Day gift that really stinks? It's perfectly acceptable to "re-gift". There's even a day set aside as "National Regifting Day" (December 20th). Psychologists from America and Europe are trying to break the taboo of re-gifting. After all, what they have found is that most people are accepting of the re-gift, even if they are hurt when it's the gift they gave. A series of experiments shows that "givers assume recipients can do what they wish with a gift". It's the receivers who place restraints on themselves. And when asked their preference about how a gift is used, givers would rather it go to a person who has use for it, rather than sit around collecting dust deep in a closet.
Every month, Reuters asks Americans how they intend to shop for the next month. The monthly ranking is called the "Consumer Sentiment Index". In April, it reached a level not seen since well before the economy collapsed 4 years ago. Americans are feeling more optimistic. An economist says (quote) "We're feeling more comfortable. It's pretty good news for consumer spending."
