Unwanted gifts from ex-partners, mum-in-laws sell on eBay

Candyce Braithwaite

THEY reckon the average adult receives at least two unwanted presents at Christmas.

So perhaps it should come as no surprise that thousands have ended up on auction websites over the last few days.

What might be particularly upsetting for the giver, however, is that some of them haven't even been unwrapped.

More than 3,000 rejected gifts from ex-partners, mother-in-laws, and other relatives have been listed on eBay since Christmas.

Many of the items listed are unopened - which means those bidding on the goods are taking a gamble on what's inside.

Would you put an unwanted gift up for auction?
