When someone gifts you with something you didn't expect, we've all had that moment where we've feigned a smile and nodded enthusiastically, claiming to love our present when really we've no idea why we got it at all.

According to METRO, one present in particular that people haven't exactly warmed to is a music album, with 5 albums named as the most unwanted present.

Musicmagpie.co.uk, a second-hand product-buying site reported that (of all albums), Adele's '25' album was traded over 30,000 times after Christmas Day, probably because everyone already has 11 copies of it at home anyway.
