As the holiday shopping session kicks in, now is the perfect time to be pondering about presents. And by pondering, we mean panicking about every single detail about your presents. Don’t worry, though, we won’t suggest any real presents, just a few funny empty boxes you can put your presents in.
Have you ever given a present and even though the gift itself was great, you felt that the presentation fell a little bit short? Or maybe you already have a great idea about the present that you want to give, but you want to tantalize and troll your giftee just a little bit more before you actually give them the good stuff? The makers themselves wrapped the idea up pretty nicely: "At Prank-O, we are dedicated to bringing a little deception and a lot of laughs to the gift-giving experience with our practical joke gift boxes. After all, there is no greater gift than laughter… except for one of those remote control quadcopter things". Talking about remotely controlled quadcopter things, where's my gift, Gary?
Prank-O has you covered with these funnily bizarre fake gifts that will surely get your loved ones’ attention. Their eyes will glitter as they tear the wrap and tear up when they see the box. The real joke begins as you see them squirm, trying to muster up a sincere "Thank you” for such an honestly weird gift. The box itself looks exactly like a real thing that you’d get from tacky TV commercials (you know which ones). The box is shipped empty so you can put the real prize inside to save the occasion. Until then, though, it’s a hilarious troll-gift.
The company that made them, 30 Watt, founded by Nordby and Walthers, have been doing it for over a decade now. What’s more, their founders had a 20-year experience of trolling people with satire at the Onion where they’ve worked since its beginnings.
The new assortment for this year’s holiday season ranges from potentially dangerous family board games and appliances to some odd and funny baby stuff, to secret drinking stashes and weird-but-hilarious contraptions for your pet, plus much more! Can’t seem to find an outlet for your toddler? Plug him into an electrical one! And if you missed the last season’s greetings from these guys, check out this another post on Bored Panda.
