Ideas for unwanted presents
Posted by stuff4sam on December 29, 2006
Let’s be realistic, you may well have received some slightly less than exciting presents this Christmas. We know that the festive season isn’t all about presents, that you don’t give to receive and that there is more to life than bath salts. But what do you do with the fluffy purple cushions that really don’t fit with your minimalist apartment or the body lotion that smells of Cherry Tunes?
We have a solution – organise an unwanted presents sale in your school, office or church! Encourage people to bring in the items that don’t really work for them and then sell them to people who do like that kind of thing!
Last year our office sales raised over £1500 for Sam. So don’t just chuck away Cousin Frank’s thoughtful gift of an talking coffee maker or those wacky socks with toes, someone might want them!
