The most unwanted Christmas presents of 2016

The most unwanted Christmas presents of 2016

Christmas may be the time for giving, but now that the dust has settled, it’s time to clear out those unwanted presents you spent the festive season feigning gratitude for.

Let’s face it, your aunt never needs to know that you’ve long since grown out of your Justin Bieber phase, or that you’d have preferred a lump of coal to that copy of Miranda Hart’s autobiography.

Poorly chosen CDs, DVDs and books are the new unflattering jumpers when it comes to undesirable Christmas presents, so rather than let them gather dust on your shelves for one moment longer than they have to, why not turn your trash into treasure by selling them on at WeBuyBooks?

Here are some go-to gifts from Christmas 2016 that may have found a place under your tree at Christmas. They might have missed the mark for you, but we’ll be happy to take them off your hands!
