If you received an item this Christmas that you will never use but is too good to leave sat at the back of a cupboard? Well fear not! Here are 5 great ways to reuse those unwanted gifts:
- Return it- if possible try and return to the shop it was purchased from. Even without the receipt you can exchange or get a credit note.
- Pass it on - give items away to friends or family or on the free and easy local Freegle and Freecycle sites.
