PRANK GIFT BOXES 101
YES, IT’S AN EMPTY BOX.
We were going to write something here, but figured we couldn't do much better than Yahoo! Tech Guru David Pogue's finely crafted words:
In this holiday season, we could use a little joy. Prank Packs will bring it.
They’re the boxes for screamingly funny, hilariously awful, but scarily plausible products that don’t really exist. The photography, typography and layout of these boxes are perfect. I mean, they look exactly like the cheesiest products you’d buy from TV infomercials.
Anyway, the point is that you put people’s real presents inside the empty Prank Pack boxes. Then, when they unwrap their gifts, you get that delicious moment of watching their faces as they struggle to be tactful. They think you’ve just given them the all-time turkey of presents.
Once they figure out that it’s just a satirical prank, there’s even more laughter — and then gratitude for the much more thoughtful present you’ve stashed inside.

BUT REALLY, I STILL HAVE QUESTIONS…
Is it true that you’re really just selling empty boxes?
That is correct. Our Prank Gift Boxes are empty boxes with fake products and brands printed on the outside.
What size are the prank boxes?
Each Prank Gift Box measures: 11.25”x 9”x 3.25”. (About the size of a giant phone book.)
Does it say anywhere on the box that it’s a prank?
I’m glad you asked. Yes, once the gift recipient opens the box they will see two bright yellow flaps that read, “Prank You!” & “ Don’t get too excited, your real gift is inside.”
Can I buy the actual product shown on the boxes?
No. Don’t be weird.
I gave a Prank Gift Box last year and it was a smashing success. Will it work again?
Yes! We have more than 53 styles to choose from, with new styles released each year. Also, look at the next question for some tips on how to sell the prank to keep the laughter going.
How can I take my Prank Packing to the next level?
You’re one of those people that practices wrapping gifts aren’t you? We like your style. Here are some tips we’ve gathered over years of professional pranking:
Have the box shrink wrapped after you’ve filled it with your real gift.
Try to match the weight of the item on the outside of the box. Adding some heavier objects will add to the deception, making it feel more real.Get a few other people in on the joke ahead of time (not too many though).
Give them a few lines they can say to really get the victim thinking you’ve all gone insane.
So you really won’t accept my Bitcoins?
Sorry, we’re just not as futuristic as you. We’ll take your Bitcoins if you want, but we won’t accept them as a payment for your order.
Can I change the address or add products to my order?
Due to the speed of the internet, once an order is placed there is zero to no time for us to change any details on the order. That being said, you can always email us immediately and we may be able to help. Include your order number and the issue you are having.
You may also be able to contact the shipping provider and work with them to update the address.
Can I buy these boxes on Amazon?
Yes, but you’ll get a better deal if you buy them here. Especially if you’re stocking up.
I purchased a Prank Pack™ through Amazon. Should I contact you if I have questions?
No, please contact Amazon Customer Service and they will be able to answer any questions you have.
How do I make a return?
Do you ship internationally?
We ship Prank-O domestically and to Canada through Amazon.ca(Canada)
Can I ship my order directly to the person I’m trying to Prank?
Yes, but our boxes all ship flat and empty. You will need to fold it into a box, put your real gift inside, and wrap it before the pranking magic can happen.
I never received my order, what should I do?
That’s not good, but we are here to help. If you haven’t done so already, find and open the shipping confirmation email you received. It will include a tracking number, and will give you the status of your order. If the tracking information says it was delivered, we recommend you check the back door, front door, your creepy neighbor’s house, or any other place you can think it might be. You may also want to check with your family members or roommates to see if they grabbed it by accident. We don’t mean to insult your intelligence here, but you’d be surprised how often a missing package shows up in one of those places. Seriously, like 9 out of 10 times. We didn’t actually do the math but it’s probably in the ballpark. Still no order? Please send us an email with your name, order number, and what was ordered. Then we’ll work with you to crack the case.
My order arrived damaged or is incomplete.
We’ve invested heavily in building the greatest fleet of fulfillment robots and delivery drones the world has ever seen, but they occasionally make mistakes. Please send us an email with your order number and what’s missing or damaged. After that we’ll get it straightened out.
I ordered a Prank Gift Box and all I received was a flat empty box, where is the actual product I ordered?
Oh, boy. This again? Alright, here we go. Prank Gift Boxes are empty boxes designed to be used as practical jokes. The product depicted on the box you ordered does not actually exist, and the world is better off for it. We try to make this as clear as possible by explaining this on almost every page. If you still want to email us and admit that you didn’t understand, you can contact us here. We promise to be nice, but understand we will be laughing at you around the water cooler.
