Some of my husband's relatives are unbelievably good at guessing what they've been given. It's one of those talents best kept quiet, I think.



Today is the last day of my final auctions this year! Please take a look--one of them is a special charity auction to benefit UNICEF.

Wow! I thought I was being creative when I wrapped my brother's birthday present in an airplane vomit bag, but you win. XD

Wrap their gifts label them correctly. Then put them in a new box and wrap them again. Label then for the opposite person.

Hahaa! To be fair, I'm pretty sure Minty has sock radar that's tuned into any unfamiliar socks in the room, so she can't help guessing that one. XD

I hope it's Epic Mickey!! That reminds me -- I need to ask Jesse if he has that one yet, and if he does, I need to bug him to bring it when he comes home for Christmas so I can see it.

I try not to guess my presents. I always guess wrong, and whatever it actually is is never as good as my guess. ^_^

I'm VERY interested in Epic Mickey. They put so much care into recreating a dark version of the theme parks. And they had no idea which Haunted Mansion to use, so they combined elements from all of them! :D

That's usually me! Lol
One year mum bought me a whole slew of gifts... I guessed EVERYTHING including a pocketbook shaped pad of paper and a hello kitty change purse ( that was shaped like a heart not Hello Kitty ). LOL And I guessed pretty much everything my boyfriend bought me. I was on fire that year. They were like DRAT and tried to stump me for years after that! Good times =D
I knew there was a reason I loved Minty besides the sock thing =D hahah
This particular strip is now one of my favourites! I really enjoyed it.

Oh man.

My father and I are batting 99% on guessing our Christmas gifts.

One year, my wife wrapped my gift (a watch) in a small box inside a larger box filled with Hershey kisses. Then she put the larger box in a hamster ball filled with styrofoam peanuts. That was wrapped in thick wrapping paper.

I picked it up, shook it and thought about it. I know they hate it when I guess so they intentionally try to fool me. So I randomly guessed what it was in the opposite direction of what it appeared to be (a basketball).

"Is it a watch?" I asked. Both my mom and my wife were like, "HOW THE HECK DID YOU FIGURE THAT OUT?!?!!" My wife stopped trying to fool me with elaborate tricks since then.

Trust me, it's part hereditary, part deduction and part luck.

We get so tired of my younger brother doing stuff like that that we put giftcards in clothes boxes and clothes in gift boxes and generally just make it impossible for him to guess by the size of the box. And we tell him we got him at least one thing which is very breakable so he won't go around shaking them to pieces.

The electric piano was a problem, though. We wrapped it and hid it in the closet, and then wrapped a note and put it under the tree and he had to go on a scavenger hunt.

And when my parents got me a bird, they wrapped a book (I have book radar like Minty has sock radar) that said, "All About Conures" and put it in a clothes box. I opened the clothes box and there was a note under the book that said, "Upstairs in the bathroom.", which was the only place they could think of to hide her the night before that I /wouldn't/ get into, because my bird was in her big ol cage in their bathroom. :P Pretty clever!

Books are the only ones I can guess. You pick up a small box that weighs ten pounds, and you just kinda know! XD I never tell people when I've figured out what I got, though.
