You could keep the ones you liked and put them in a picture frame to use as décor in your home.
  2. Christmas tree – If you still have your tree it is time to get rid of it. There are plenty of places in the surrounding area to bring it to.
  3. Gift boxes – Some of your gifts may have been put in gift boxes. Simply throw these out if you don’t have any use for them and they cannot be recycled. There is no need to keep them around for the just in case scenario.
