BY RAIN NOE From Core 77

Forget the gift that keeps on giving; go for the gift that keeps on taking up time

Sometimes we’re obligated to give gifts to folks that we don’t really like. But with a little ingenuity and holiday sadism, we can even the scales by making those gifts painfully difficult to open. Here’s the first example (sadly unattributed):

Presumably the gift inside is a pair of utility shears.
Let’s go up a level in difficulty. When this guy’s welder buddy “lost a bet and had to fork over a bottle of booze,” this is how it arrived:

You can take it further than that using some items from the local hardware store. “My brother and I always make each other’s presents hard to open for fun,” writes this person. Here’s what they’ve done, captions theirs:

All the ingredients for the most sadistically wrapped present ever. He asked for the belt and Xbox live credits.

Zip ties to hold the belt together/make it a pain to unravel.

Xbox live credits wrapped in duct tape.

Belt and card sealed inside plastic box with peanuts.

High strength fishing line wrapped around box several times.

A padlock and zipties to hold the box shut.

The box duct taped entirely as well as the key to the aforementioned lock.

Add some chains, fishing line, pad locks and zip ties…

Wrap the fiendish contraption in more duct tape.

Place in larger box wrapped with duct tape. Looking forward to Christmas this year!
