Introduction: Big Gift, Big Gift...Little Gift?
I do this every time we give away presents to family. I take a small gift and put into box after box until it becomes huge and they think it is a big gift. You can imagine how shocked they are when they find out it’s that Elgin watch they wanted! t’s always funny because some people I actually do have a big gift for. That way, nobody ever knows which gift is the prank gift. Also, they never know how tiny the gift is. I love this because it throws off people who shake gifts and try to guess what their presents are before time.

Step 1: The Stuff You'll Need
Collect as many boxes as you want. The more, the funnier. Also, get gift wrap and a few bows, with scotch tape and scissors. And some newspaper.
Step 2: Gettin' to It
Put the gift in a box the right size for the real gift. Wrap it all nice-like, and then put it into a too-big box. Spread newspaper so it doesn’t rattle when you shake it. Varnish with bow. Repeat.
Step 3: Wait for It..
When you are satisfied, put it in a tantalizing place, with the other correctly-sized gifts. Wait for the laughter when your joke is revealed!
