  • Summary

  • Tom Allen invites three celebrity guests to bring along their most unwanted gift, and share the funny and revealing stories behind them. 

    Be it a tasteless and ill-fitting jacket from in-laws, a broken kitchen appliance from a sibling, or a genuinely weird bit of oversized wall art from a particularly weird ex...all unwanted gifts are welcome here!

    The three guests compete to provide the best (or worst!) stories attached to their unwanted gift. The winner gets to enter the fabled and mysterious Room of Gifts, to take a chance and swap their present for something new....

A twist on Room 101 for unwanted gifts.

Tom Allen's Room of Gifts just kept on giving, what an amazing idea! Each episode was packed with lots of laughter because the guests were great and the conversations were hilarious! From the back stories of the unwanted gifts to the wrapping paper usage (you'll have to listen to understand), I loved it all! Such an easy listen, whether in the car, doing the housework or your hobby.... just make sure the kids aren't in earshot! I just hope there are more episodes to come in the future. Tom, Amazing as always, Thankyou!
