Fake Gift Boxes

I'm pretty astonished that I never heard about fake gift boxes before, at least not ones that you can purchase in stores. I remember falling for custom gift boxes more than once, for instance the small present in big box prank, but fake gift boxes, that is certainly raising the level by a lot. The boxes look really professional and it is definitely in the realm of possibility that someone would on first glance believe that this is the real present.

Currently four of those gift boxes are available: A Pro Whisk Set with 28 whisks, the Visor Organizer which turns the head into another pocket, the Smoke Alarm with custom sounds ranging from sounds of the rainforest to Dixieland tunes and last but not least the Auto Power Strip which is a electronic hub placed directly under the rear mirror of the car.

I simply had to write about these, forgive me, hehe.

Update: The Prank Pack website features more than a dozen of these fake gift boxes right now. While you do not get the ones described above, you do get all time classics such as the Pet Sweep gift box, the Familiy Blankeez box that provides the whole family with a single wearable blanket, or iArm, a tablet holder for the arm that does not really look that practicable to being with.

All boxes are sold for $8 each and if you pick three you pay $20 instead. The boxes all have the same size: 11.25 x 9 x 3.25 which is about the size of a big phone book.

These prank gifts work in English speaking countries, for obvious reasons. All information on the boxes are in English, and there does not seem to be an option to buy localized fake gift boxes instead.
