    Clearly recycled gifts.

  2. scott says:

    Hey look, 5 boxes

  3. glasstabletop says:

    Hey, is this the same family from the Strawberros picture?

  4. Jeff Quin says:

    Divorce alternative– just give the family away.

  5. mark says:

    If you love something set it free, If it comes back then wrap it up in a silly gift box costume and give it to anyone that will take it.

  6. mark says:

    Sponge Bob Square present

  7. Midge says:

    The moment I knew that I was a true dork… when I looked at this photo and thought “That is a great idea, we should use it this year” Seriously I love this!

  8. Amice says:

    You know, I get tired of the same old nicely-dressed-family-artfully-arranged-in-front-of-the-tree Christmas photo too, but there has got to be a better way, people!

  9. qtrgrl says:

    Aww it could be awkward but they are just so damn happy it’s adorable. They are a great looking family

  10. Michelle says:

    This has Clark Griswold written all over it.

  11. Carrie says:

    All that wasted giftwrap… Must have been a sale.

  12. ping says:

    awesome. there are no other words, totoally awesome.

  13. Tim says:

    The santa hats have Mickey ears…

    OK, I don’t get it.

  14. norm says:

    Where are Dads hands?

  15. Frank says:

    With the economy the way it is… This may be all we can afford this year.

  16. Alex says:

    haha i dressed up as a present one year for halloween. Sadly i didnt wear the fancy dress costume

  17. Cheryce says:

    backs away slowly, turns, and runs away screaming….

  18. Swede says:

    Now, I like the head tilts the best! Check out the kids and the women (moms?) The women have got their heads to the right and the kids to the left.

    Now that’s art!

  19. Michelle says:

    I too thought there were two wives in this picture, but if you look closely, the two women look remarkably alike. The younger one looks too old to be the daughter, so I’m thinking she’s the other woman’s sister.

    on another note, I’m asking myself I ask with a lot of these photos: WHY???

  20. Connie says:

    First thing I though of was RE-GIFT!!!

  21. labellemere says:

    Hey, the twins (I’m guessing?) are ADORABLE. I’d take them over any Christmas gift I’ve ever received!

  22. Sidhe says:

    Why do these kids look nothing like….any of their possible parents?

  23. baxter says:

    so these people gift themselves so that they can become the giftee’s new responsibility and be fed for free… desperate times call for awkward measures. hope it works out

  24. byrddawg says:

    Defective…need more arms and hands…

  25. Vix says:

    This is great! What a Halloween Idea!! WOO! Thanks guys!

    • emm says:

      this is similar to my nephews costume last halloween. a wrapped present, with a tag on it that said “TO: Women FROM: God” hence, god’s gift to women. it was so cute. LOL

  26. Maya B says:

    Thanks, but I really wanted a bike for Christmas…

  27. Bleah! says:

    Hey moderator! What’s up with you??

  28. Kimberly says:

    Holiday houseguests. The gift that keeps on giving.

  29. MST says:

    I hope they kept the receipts.

  30. JD says:

    Love the Mickey Mouse ear/Santa hats on the boys. Nice awkward touch. They all look reasonably happy doing it. I wish there were a surly adolescent out. That would have made it perfection!

  31. Natalie says:

    We need to get the calculators out again and figure out why this one has two moms…

  32. neverfirst says:

    No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no,no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no,no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no.

  33. Jamie says:

    Um, which one is the mother?

  34. You can just tell this was Dad’s idea.

    • steff says:

      This is the kind of thing I would do to my kids, and I’m a mom. I think it makes an awesome Christmas card. Kudos to the young-looking mom.

  35. laurie says:

    I wanted a family for Christmas…but this one’s defective!

    Look! Two of them have MOUSE ears.

    I suppose I can donate them to charity instead….

  36. me says:

    no comment…

  37. HAHAHAHA this has to be one of my favorite pictures ever! Look how happy they are…

  38. doggiekittymama says:

    I think it’s kind of cute and creative. Attractive family too.

    • Jen says:

      I love this one too. If one or more of them looked forced it would be awkward. To me its more cheesy-sweet. Glad someone submitted it, cause its adorable!

      • ivette says:

        it’s my family…this is what we do…i’m the daughter on the right side, my mom’s on the left…and then of course my lil bro and sis at the bottom.

  39. Tim says:

    Love isn’t love till you give it away!

  40. jenjen says:

    …cheaper than adoption

  41. Where can these be returned?


  42. Bet says:

    Dang – he looks just like the Strawbreros Dad. Wonder if he has different summer and winter families?

  43. Modine says:

    Here’s what I need to know…how did they get into these contraptions? There must have been an unseen wrapper. It doesn’t look like the neck openings are big enough to accomodate the elaborate hair ornaments. (not saying compound bow, not saying compound bow) and the boxes too wide for them to reach their own heads.

    • The box has the bottom cut out of it. The cut a hole for the head, and two for the arms, then wrapped it. The just stuck the arms and head through and tada! We get this lovely photo! ;]

    • eisbaer says:

      Well, someone took the picture, right? So, probably this someone could helpt with the wrapping, too ;o)

  44. Andi says:

    1) Cut a hole in a box

    2) Put your family in that box

    3) Make people open that box

    …And that’s the way you do it…

  45. Abexplorer says:

    This looks like a scene right out of National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation !

    • hs says:

      my thoughts exactly! he looks like clark griswald. though it should be moose antlers instead of mickey ears.

  46. Is it me or is there 2 wives in this picture?

  47. Jolae says:

    Which one is the wife?????

    • parkit says:

      gooooood call, i just noticed that.

      • Folli says:

        I think the man is the father of all the children in the picture–two daughters from first marriage and the children in the front are from his second marriage.

        The father has his box on backwards.

  48. MB says:

    It must have seemed like a good idea at the time!

  49. eeyore19 says:

    Are those Mickey Mouse ears on the guys…?

  50. Amanda says:

    Surprisingly, none of them look unwanted, regardless of the fact that the family was giving them away.
