This will be a package sent to anyone with items such as toothpaste, toothbrush, shampoo, deodorant, and any personal care product that you want to include. The simple idea is to make the victim second-guess their hygiene or just make them go crazy thinking about who this was from. It is a very simple but very effective prank. I have had friends come in the next day asking everyone if they sent it to them or if they knew who did, it WILL drive them crazy. Then you can tell them after a while or just let it go on forever and leave them wondering who it could have been or why it was sent to them. This has and will be one of my favorite pranks of all time and hopefully you will enjoy it as much as I do.

Step 1: Figuring Out What You Want to Put in the Package
Depending on how you want to make the person feel then there are various things to put in the package.
You can make them feel self-conscious (I would only recommend to do to a guy because some girls wouldn't think it was funny) by putting self cleansing products such as deodorant, shampoo, mouthwash, ect...
You can make them feel happy and wonder why they got this by sending money to them, leaving them asking why they got it.
Freak them out by sending them their things that they lost (that you took from them). Do this with anything invaluable but that could only be theirs. And try to send a few things a couple of different days just to keep them guessing.
Any of these items will make the victim continue to guess who sent these things and why. All of them are fun, harmless jokes and remember that if they start really get scared that you should reveal yourself and reassure them that it was a joke and that you meant no harm by it.
Step 2: The Package
This is where you have two choices:
You can either hand deliver the package to the person and leave nothing on the package except for their name.
You can also send it through the mail with no return address and leave a name such as the Easter Bunny or Santa Clause or just no name at all. This one is my favorite.
If you know this person very well I would recommend typing everything so that they can not decipher your handwriting and trace it back to you, this would ruin the joke and you would reveal yourself.
Step 3: Watch Everything Play Out
This is where you just sit back and watch your victim go crazy trying to figure out what was meant by it or any other thing you want to do. If you do reveal yourself you should wait at least a few weeks so they have time to really think about it.
