Which is why the people of Perth took to Facebook marketplace and Gumtree less than a week after Christmas was over to get rid of these useless gifts.
While some people might call them ungrateful – we just call them sensible – some of these gifts are horrendous.
So you don’t have to – we’ve found the weirdest gifts people are trying to flog online.
A new unopened large leg of free range Australian ham
We feel like this is the sort of present only Homer Simpson could love.
It’s gluten-free and will only set you back $40.
Dance pole static spinning NEW
In the wise words of Nelly – I’ve got a friend with a pole in the basement.
It’s a bargain at $150.
Erotic poetry fridge magnets
“Reveal creative parts of yourself you never knew existed”.
Just what you want to see on Nan’s fridge.
Lingerie Bras n Things
We are sensing a theme here…. it is highly likely that anything considered “sexy” will be unwanted and sold online.
Toilet time basketball
This is just unhygienic. But at $5 a bargain.
This is Perth – home of unusual means of transport.
But some people just prefer to walk.
You can get this esky for $450.
The recipient of this gift would rather “kayak in the swan” than “surf at Cottesloe”.
So on Gumtree this went.
But at $299, we’re going to tell the seller they’re dreaming.
