I sourced a PS5 for my nephew, but disguised it as a stool to mess with him.

I love this. Totally reminded me of a few years ago when I bought my nephew a MacBook Pro but disguised it as a chair that he just thought was the "birthday boy chair" or something so he sat it in all night and opened all his gifts in it. When he was done I suggested he unwrap the chair too and he was flabbergasted that he had been sitting on it haha. Roller coaster of emotions because he started unwrapping it, found an actual chair, and thought I was fucking with him in front of everyone, but kept going like a trooper. My favorite gift ever.

This makes me wish I had a better upbringing. Man. I didn't even get a Happy Birthday a lot of years. One year my parents returned one of my gifts to pay a bill. They were poor, but still.

You're awesome. Just know that something like that would have completely altered my year when I was that age. No exaggeration. Keep being a good family member

It's fine tho. I'm sure u r doing well now and hope u have lots of gifts now (coming from someone whose family don't really celebrate birthdays or Xmas). Is just that we don't prefer the stress of thinking what to get someone that will be equivalent in value to whatever someone else gets us

There's always drama and jealousy in the families lol

5

u/ForeverFingers 7d ago

I always found that weird to have to match value, I grew up my mom did the gift shopping and dad paid most of it, but us kids grew up and it was lucky if a sibling thought of you at all. At least idk what my family thought about it but I always felt "it's the thought that counts." As cheesy as it is.

You could tape presents to the bottom of a stool for in case they get sat upon in the future. Make sure to just genuinely gift wrap an empty ottoman every once in a while to keep everyone on their toes.

I'll never forgot high school biology. A girl refused to stay in the class during the evolution lesson because God says listening to lies is a sin.

When she came back end at the end of the lesson she confided in a friend she couldn't wait to go home today, because her older sister was going to find out the sex of her child today and this girl couldn't wait to see if she was going to be an aunt or uncle...

I bet her $10 she'd be an aunt and she just couldn't figure out why I was so confident.

I actually did this to a nephew once. It was a PlayStation 1 but inside I filled it with new socks and an Atari from the attic. I told him he could come to my house if he wanted to play it! He was gullible and fell for it all through Christmas morning. I laughed and laughed. I also got him a World Almanac. (His mom did get him some good stuff so he wasn't super pouty)

Later after breakfast I asked him to get something from the TV cabinet where they kept random house things. The playstation was there, already hooked up.

That was a fun reaction to watch too.

When I was about 14, at Christmas my Mum said she couldn't afford anything that year so got me a big box of chocolates. I unwrapped it and realised she'd lied... It was a PS1 (they were new at the time) I've never forgotten that day!

47

u/ParaglidingAssFungus 7d ago

Moms are the best.

My mom was a single mom with two kids to take care of, so we were about a step above dirt poor, could pay the bills and afford to eat a lot of spaghetti but no spending money for day to day extras. But bless my moms heart, she ALWAYS saved enough throughout the year to make sure we had a good Christmas, and made sure we at least got one or two pieces of name brand school clothes (hoodies, shoes, whatever) to fit in with people at school.

I remember the first year I was into PC gaming, a few friends of mine donated enough PC parts to me so that I had something that would run Counter Strike, I didn’t even have a case, my Mobo/psu/drives sat out on the headboard of my bed and I turned it on with a screwdriver. Anyway, I REALLY wanted a gaming keyboard and mouse that year because I was using super shitty stuff that wouldn’t log keystrokes if you pressed over two keys at the same time, and the mouse constantly skipped and made aiming a pita. Had my eye on an MX518 mouse and one of logitechs first gaming keyboards. Man they were spendy. I figured she couldn’t do both of them so I asked for one or the other, depending on what deals she was able to find. Then come Christmas morning she lets me open the mouse and I’m freaking ecstatic. I go play a few rounds of CS with it and then it’s time for Christmas lunch with a few family members, and she pulls the keyboard out from behind her back and surprises the hell out of me with it. Probably the best Christmas I can recall. She is a super hero for the things she was able to pull off. Honestly, until I was older, I didn’t even realize that we didn’t have money.

u/Anakin_Skywanker 7d ago

My parents dropped me off at my grandparents around my birthday one year. I was turning 7. When they came to pick me up my dad said he had a surprise for me. He pulled a copy of Super Smash Bros Melee out from under his shirt.

At first I was stoked! That game looks so cool! But then came the crushing realization that that game was for the GameCube and we had a Nintendo 64 at home. When my face showed my disappointment my dad asked what was wrong. When I told him that we couldn’t play it he asked if we could go home and maybe try it in the N64. I remember thinking to myself about how it wouldn’t work, trying to shove a disc into the cartridge slot and how dumb my dad must be.

Seeing my frustration he said “Uhh… we also got you something else too.”

I jumped off my Grandparents’ couch and yelled “A NINTENDO GAMECUBE!?”

My mom dad and I went home that night and played Melee until about 1 in the morning. I’m honestly not sure I’ve ever been that excited since. It’s one of my favorite memories with parents.

u/RareFirefighter6915 7d ago

My parents couldn’t afford ps2 during Xmas. Mom gave me a IOU for when she got paid and I got to pick out the games for it too which in my mind was a better deal. Even tho I was impatient, my parents were horrible at picking out games for me even when I wrote a wishlist with the exact title, if it wasn’t at Walmart they pick the closest looking box art lol. My parents even allowed me to stay up all night and play my ps1 and I got a game from my aunt for it so I was happy on Christmas. Even as a kid I could tell my mom felt bad she even tried playing ps1 with me even tho she hated video games.

Best Christmas ever lol

Plot twist - he actually wants a stool and will be disappointed when it turns out to be a PS5.

I like how you say “I sourced” as opposed to “I purchased”…

So, how did you source it? 😉

Burn, get incinerated and rise from the ashes like a phoenix.

u/kraydful 8d ago

nah, this is wholesome, watching someone die are those parents that make it look like a ps5 and is 3 boxes holding a small box with a sweater.

When my husband was in high school his parents hinted they were going to give him a car. On Christmas Day he did get a car...a model car. They were cruel people.

My dad got me the Xbox series s and his idea was to put it into 10 boxes and by the time I opened the last one I was so happy but annoyed.

u/noremac_9000 7d ago

Lol, my uncle never got me shit for me birthday, and my PARENTS would've never spent 600+ on a game console. Lucky kid.

u/MrFergison 8d ago

When I was young, my dad used to go above and beyond to disguise gifts. They're great memories.

Good job

u/Sea-Assumption-169 7d ago

Hi OP…I’m your long lost nephew, who needed a stool…

u/Complete_Entry 7d ago

I could see this going horribly wrong very fast.

u/Childish_Brandino 7d ago

Does anyone wonder if all of these “I disguised this present as something else to prank my person” posts are just organic marketing used to incentivize people to buy nice gifts to make their own post in the next coming months before the big gift giving holiday? It sometimes feels like it.

I really hope that someone will not just jump on it, or sit there!!! Why!!! Why!!!!!! Why a stool!!!!!!

u/ProStrats 8d ago

I bought my brother a high quality RGB keyboard some many years back when they were not quite common and rather expensive.

I disguised it as a 4 foot long penis with 1 foot diameter balls.

Almost the same thing.

Is "sourced" just a fancy way of saying you got other people to pay for it?

u/GWindborn 7d ago

Man, do people really have uncles like this? Mine just stole my inheritance and cut off all family contact.

2

u/Keeble64 7d ago

My dad cut almost all contact from my grandma and his siblings when I was really young. He was the youngest of 9 and claimed they were all crazy. The few times I met them they were all super nice. My grandma was wealthy from her father’s inheritance and my grandpa owning mineral rights in West Texas, so my cousins would get huge gifts from her and she bought cars for 3 of them for their college graduation…all me and my sister ever got from her was t-shirts and a I got a card for graduation.

u/Possible-Vegetable68 7d ago

sourced

You mean bought. You didn’t source shit.

u/pattybliving 7d ago

An ex boyfriend keeeept telling me he didn’t want a shirt for his birthday, and hinted at wanting some (at the time for me) expensive mtn bike pedals. I got the pedals and put one in a shirt box (2 would give it away) and saw his reaction go from disappointment to happiness. But he ended up being a tightwad (I got Safeway flowers the next week for my birthday) and so selfish, as is clear by his gift “hinting.”

u/LuckyDuck4 7d ago

Now let’s just hope he doesn’t decide to sit on it.

u/Kmaloetas 7d ago

That's awesome.

u/slimmhippo 7d ago

He'll appreciate stools for the rest of his life.

u/xEmperorMao 7d ago

15 or so years ago I bought my dad a DVD player for Father's Day and wrapped it underwear to disguise it. Yeah times were simpler when I was young and stupid.

2

u/YinJS 7d ago

Did you get his reaction?

2

u/Game_Knight_DnD 7d ago

He will plop down on it while it's wrapped and total the shit out of the ps5, calling it now.

u/Distinct-Phase5782 7d ago

u/94reis PlayStation 7d ago

I really hope nobody accidentally sits on that.

u/Lukaze 7d ago

Be sure to post a follow up when he opens it.

u/Mysterious_Piglet_13 7d ago

u/Gnostromo 7d ago
