The best Unwanted Christmas gift deals

Christmas Jumper

We’ve all experienced the anticipation of opening a brightly wrapped present, only for it to not match our taste or to realise it’s something we already have. If you’re hanging on to those unwanted Christmas gifts, why not use the $30 billion second-hand economy to put a bit of cash back in your pocket after the expensive festive season. This year, 71% of Australians received at least one unwanted gift and there’s probably plenty more sat collecting dust in cupboards across the country.

Perhaps you’ve been gifted a statue of a cat, despite not liking felines, or a basic photography book, despite being a professional photographer. You may have even committed the crime of giving an unwanted gift yourself, perhaps intentionally as a “joke”, or given a gift that completely missed the mark. Perhaps a limited budget kept you from buying what you really wanted to get for someone? Despite all good intentions, sometimes a gift is just not quite right. The estimated value of unwanted gifts in Australia is a staggering $630 million. It’s expected that around 3 million Australians will sell their unwanted gifts on sites like Gumtree this year.

There are many reasons why people don’t like their presents; it may be the colour, the style, or a duplicate item. If you have unwanted gifts under the tree, turn to Gumtree and sell them to a good home, or if you didn’t get what you wished for and are in the mood for shopping, why not have a look at the many thousands of quality “Unwanted gifts” on Gumtree? Spoil yourself with one of these Second Hand Santa top deals.
