Who wants to give — let alone receive — a bad Christmas gift?
You can usually tell when you’ve missed the mark. The tight smile. The fake glee. The overly gushy “thank you” that really means “I hope this sucker came with a gift receipt.”
One in three people will return a gift this holiday season, according to B-Stock Solutions, a company that liquidates excess inventory, overstock and customer returns from major retailers and manufacturers.
In the first three months of 2016, the company had 61 percent more items than usual to sell, a glut of post-Christmas returns, writes comparison shopping website DealNews.
