It's the most wonderful time of the year – for some, not all, if this collection of items up for sale on Facebook Marketplace is to go by.
We've all been given some dodgy Christmas gifts over the years, and selling them quickly has never been easier.
Thanks to Facebook Marketplace, we can now see the fire-sales being attempted as people take stock of some of the wonderful – or not – gifts they got during the festive period.
It's also a chance for some people to grab second-hand bargains on items which are nearly as good as new.
One person in West Hull is attempting to sell a hoover, which is being described as “like brand new” and has only been used twice, the seller claims.
Up for sale at £70, it is almost half the price of the latest model in Argos, Hull Live reports.
If you fancy bagging yourself a top class fashion item, then a Moncler Beanie Hat is listed for sale at £120.
As extortionate as that may seem for a hat, it's actually £30 cheaper than most other places.
Fiorelli handbags are some of the best on the market, but one person clearly doesn't agree as they're selling it for just £15.
We reckon, that for such a low price – as it normally retails at several hundreds of pounds – it might not be a real one.
Other items found include a Moschino Toy Boy Eau De Parfum – a slight step up from the standard Lynx Africa gift set – which is available to buy for around £40.
In Manchester, the Manchester Evening News found some gems on Facebook Marketplace, too.
A Nintendo Switch game called Gang Beats is available for £20m with the seller being very, very honest.
He wrote: “I have got this for a Christmas present and I’m selling it for 20 pound, it is new it’s an online game.”
For some unknown reasons, someone out there thought that buying their friend or family member some “water-spraying speakers” was a good idea.
If you fancy buying such an odd item, or just wanted to get wet while jamming, you can put these up for £20.
The person selling them admitted that it is an “unwanted Christmas present, brand new from B&M”.
And in what could be describe as an absolute bargain, a pair of Nike Jordan trainers are up for sale for £90 – a little bit cheaper than retail.
The seller says that the trainers were a “Christmas present” but that they are the wrong size, and selling them is “easier than sending back”.
