16. A Gift Box That Will Break Your Heart
Most of the time, you are online shopping for someone else with a birthday or special milestone. A gift box can be a thoughtful and creative way to celebrate any occasion. You can put an assortment of goodies together in several themes, color schemes, and other ideas. The possibilities are endless as long as there is cohesion among the items inside the box. Indirafrench chose a nice, red and lovely breakfast box that she had ordered for her Mother’s Day, and it was supposed to be a gorgeous token of appreciation (via Reddit).
What arrived was undoubtedly a missed opportunity. The items were mismatched completely and lacked the flair from the original setting. There were no ribbons, no stickers, no tortillas, no treats. Several other commenters on the thread agreed that the discrepancies were “disrespectful” and “disappointing (via Reddit).” It is a shame that what was supposed to be a thoughtful gift turned out to be a less-than-perfect present.
