Default Prank Christmas gifts.

So did anyone get any or give any this year?


My nephews started about 6 years ago pranking/boobie trapping the gifts they gave to other family members.

My wife's family is big so at thanksgiving we draw names for Christmas. Well in the past my gifts have been hidden somewhere in the house and was given clues on how to find them. They have been wrapped with entire tools of duck tape and last year my gift was wrapped with a roll of duck tape with metal banding layered in so I couldn't just cut it with my pocket knife.

This year I got my nephews name that started all the prank gifts so I decided to raise the bar to a whole new level. I bought the exact gift he wanted and taped the envelope so it would not catch on fire then welded a steel box up put said gift in box and welded the top on. I wrapped it with nice Christmas paper the used magnets to hold a hacksaw to the out side of the box with a note saying you might need this to open you gift.

I have not experienced any of that at all this year. However, I always thought of prank or white elephant gifts as a great idea to take pressure off of getting that "perfect gift for everyone".

I just remembered that we have put smaller gifts in way larger boxes before.

My aunt sent my mom a curl of fake, but very realistic looking dog shit. My sister put it on the floor and I pushed my 3 year old's face in it. He was not happy about it. My boys were also very disgusted when I bit it.

I gave my brother in law a pair of tighty whitey's that I colored a big ole nasty brown streak in with a crayon till it bled through to the other side and put a little yellow stain in the front with marker. He opened it in front of the whole family. It was a good laugh.

we've done this, wrapped the small gift a couple times, taping all seems, then put in a bigger box, and do the same, sometimes even putting into a third box and wrapping it too, sometimes adding weight to one of the boxes to though everything off.

Old school manual rotary knob can openers work wonders on that shit.
