Empty Birthday Gift Card Prank


This is one of the most dastardly birthday pranks evah – you know, in a playful kinda way. We will anonymously send someone you know a birthday card with a BLANK gift card inside.

Let that sink in for a moment. The gift card is BLANK – zero dollars on it. No balance. Empty.

They won't know who sent them the birthday card, which will totally drive them nuts, but you best believe they're going to use that gift card. And when they do, they'll have to fork over their own cash at checkout — or skulk out of the store. Classic.

It's a triple-whammy of frustration for the recipient. First, wondering who sent them a nice card and gift card. Second, finding out the card is empty after spending all that time shopping. Third, realizing they got pranked big-time and have no idea who did it.

Add your own message – or we will hand-write the following inside the card:

I hope you have an amazing birthday! Love, Sarah*

Gift cards will be for popular, widely available retail stores, such as Walmart and Target. If the card does not have a dollar amount printed on it, we will write $25 on it. Gift cards are real and in new condition (they just don't have any funds loaded on them).

What else makes this prank so special:

  • Each card is custom made to order.
  • It's actually a premium birthday card.
  • You can upgrade it to a glitter bomb card if you want.
  • We hand-write the message in the card.
  • We hand-write the mailing address and return address
  • Sent anonymously from one of several U.S. postal addresses.
  • We use a colorful stamp on the card (for U.S. addresses, international may be metered).
  • We put a cute birthday sticker on the color envelope for that extra-personal touch. This will not be overlooked as junk mail.

* Why Sarah? It's one of the most popular names. Just about everyone at least knows a Sarah. But you can provide any message or name that you want.
Please note: Birthday card will not exactly match the one shown due to secrecy, but it will be a premium birthday card.

Add Custom Message

Your personal message for the card up to 350 characters. Remember, the only way they will know this is from you is if you include your name here or you choose the “take credit” option. Otherwise it’s totally anonymous.

Upgrade to a Glitter Bomb Card

Upgrade this to a birthday version of our world famous Original Glitter Bomb Card. We have several options to choose from.

Anonymous or Not?

Our standard practice is to use our private return address without any mention of you or us on the envelope – it’s anonymous. But you can also choose to take credit on the envelope so they know it’s from you (or show us some love by letting us include ours)
