A novel way to regift

The post-Christmas rush to sell unwanted gifts on eBay is no secret – the typical ad being a detailed description of the gift, followed by “Unwanted Christmas present” or “I love it but it’s not my size”, something like that.

I like the novel approach one young lady took with some unwanted Christmas gifts (rather a lot of them, one might observe – but teenagers are notoriously difficult as gift recipients). 

Instead of taking the mundane, item-by-item approach, she simply bundled them all up into one “mystery parcel” and auctioned the lot on Trade Me (New Zealand’s answer to eBay).  You can read all about it here.

I’m impressed by her creative approach, and also how much money she made by making the contents of the parcel a mystery – rather than the usual way of describing and photographing everything in detail.  I don’t know if I’d ever do the same thing myself, but I rather admire her chutzpah!
