Empty Holiday Gift Card Prank


This is one of the most devilish holiday pranks ever created.

We will send a nice holiday card along with a BLANK gift card inside.

Think about it. The gift card is BLANK – zero dollars on it. No balance.

Your unsuspecting target won’t know who sent them the card (unless you want them to) but you better believe they’re going to use that gift card…

And after they spend their time shopping, they’ll have to fork over their own cash at checkout — or skulk out of the store embarrassed — because there are no funds on the card. Now that is a gotcha moment right there.

You can include your own custom message inside OR we will hand-write the following inside the card:

I hope you have a wonderful Holiday and a Happy New Year!


  • Each holiday card is custom made to order.
  • We hand-write the message inside the card.
  • We hand-write the mailing address and return address
  • Sent anonymously from one of several U.S. postal addresses. We do not include your name or ours inside, unless you include it.
  • We use a colorful stamp on the card (for U.S. addresses, international may be metered).
  • We put a cute sticker on the back of the envelope to make it look even more festive and personal. This will not be overlooked as junk mail.
  • Gift card is a new, unused Walmart gift card. It has a zero balance on it, but the recipient will think it has $50 on it.
  • Fast, free shipping!

Note: Card may not be exactly as shown.

Custom Card Message

Your personal message will be hand-written inside the card. Optional but recommended.

Card Type

Upgrade to Glitter Bomb or Confetti Card

We can transform this card into a glitter bomb card or a confetti card if you want. Festive colored glitter, or larger confetti, will pop out of the card when opened. Confetti includes holiday shapes, such as stars, Christmas trees, snowflakes, etc.

More Fun Add-ons

Customize your card with some of these fun add-ons. What better way to put their mind at ease before they go embarrass themselves shopping with the empty gift card. Pokemon, baseball, football, hockey, basketball and superhero cards include random new or classic cards. Scratch off lottery ticket is a fake winner of $5000-50000 (must read the back for clues that it is a phony).

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 mysteriously anonymous. But you can also choose to take credit on the envelope so they know it’s from you.
