Prank Pack-Fake Gift Boxes

January 1st, 2011 by Rose DesRochers · 9 Comments

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday. Over the holidays I was sent a unique, fun product from Prank Pack to review.

Prank Pack makes Fake Gift Boxes that present a completely useless product on the outside.

The recipient will have no clue that they are being pranked until they open the gift.

We tested the theory out on my son. I wrapped one of his Christmas presents in the iArm box- the forearm mount that gives you, well, an extra arm. Just 4.5 lbs and fully adjustable, the iArm lets you take your favorite gadget with you.

Considering how absurd some of those “As Seen on TV” products can be, the boxes are really that believable.


My son unwrapped his gift and had no clue that there wasn’t an iArm to hold his iPod in the box. Even my daughter thought there was really an iArm inside the box. (Talk about gullible children.)

When my son opened the box he was greeted with a bright yellow sign informing him of the gag and his original gift was inside the box.

My son actually liked the box more than the present inside. I think he may have been a little disappointed that he didn’t get an iArm. “Laugh”

Prank Pack Fake Gift Boxes are a fantastic concept and really put some fun in gift giving.

Prank Pack

Prank Pack offers several different “styles” of boxes including: Coffee Talkies, Pet Petter, Beer Beard and the Wake & Bake Griddle alarm clock.

These boxes come flat and are very simple to assemble. Prank Packs retail for $8.00 each or you can purchase 3 for $20.00 at

With April Fool’s Day only three months away you don’t need to prepare an elaborate scheme, just purchase a Prank Pack.

Disclaimer: I received a prank pack to review, no other form of payment was received.

    Maybe I lack a sense of humor – or more specifically the right type of a sense of humor – but I find the packaging unfunny. Not irritating as much as dopey and unnecessary.
    Sidebar: I always find those personal ads that say “must have a sense of humor” hysterical; almost everyone has one, but it manifests itself differently in people.

    With all the strange products on the market the boxes reflect what could possible be a real item in the box.

    I guess you have to have that right sense of humor. The prank is the fun part.

    I love these! BTW Rose, they are 3/$20 (not 2) on the site. Can’t wait to see what they come up with next. Oh yes, Roger Green sounds like an amazing fun man! Want to party with that guy…

    Thanks Barry. That makes sense. I corrected my error. They really do make you go WTH.

    @Roger Green: I agree with Roger Green that it takes someone with that “sense of humor” to get the sense of humor out of these prank boxes. But I definitely find them funny! I got mine in the form of Coffee Talkies. My husband got one as I am a coffee enthusiast and he was always telling me I’ll have nervous breakdown with all the cups I am drinking. He ordered one box then proceeded to fool me on my birthday! I gave him my “you didn’t!!!” look, the product picture on the box was really absurd but then, when I opened it, haha! My gift was a safe and beautiful blouse. 🙂 Boy, was I relieved!
