The second-hand sale sites have been filling up with unwanted gifts since Christmas morning, with the Australian version of eBay boasting a Rav4 manual all-wheel-drive car being sold by someone in Merrylands for a starting bid of $15,027, The Sydney Morning Herald reported Wednesday.

Website Gumtree has a "super tame hand-raised'' Major Mitchell parrot described as an ''unwanted Christmas (present)" listed for $621 as well as a remote-controlled robotic bird with an asking price of $82.

Other items being sold on eBay and Gumtree with descriptions revealing them as unwanted Christmas gifts include a pair of Abercrombie and Fitch men's cargo jeans and a $103 David Jones gift card being sold for $82 because the seller does not "generally buy from" David Jones stores.

Meanwhile, a St. Vincent de Paul stall in Melbourne Central is allowing people with unwanted gifts to donate them to the needy. Volunteers said they have already received a set of chili-infused kebab sticks, a new popsicle maker set and a Thomas the Tank Engine ''pop-o-matic'' board game.
