Efficiency of gift giving

by Jadrian

Joan tries to give Jen and Greg a gift certificate for a couples massage because of how stressed they are. It turns out that Greg and Jen had already given her that gift certificate and caught her in the act of regifting the item. Joan claims they didn't really need it because they were never really stressed so it was better to just give it back. One of the transactional issues of gift giving is that it's hard to know exactly what the other person values, which creates losses in surplus.
