Every year we end up with Christmas presents that we have no use for, and we either donate them to the Salvation Army or re-gift them for acquaintances or co-workers.

It would be difficult to re-gift a car or a live or robotic bird. It`s an excellent idea to auction off your unwanted gifts on eBay.
