How to Send Gifts Anonymously



A Step-By-Step Guide to send anonymous gifts for your pranks, white elephant gifts or secret Santa allow you to buy some of the worst and wicked gifts ever. Usually, they are funny and will make the recipient laugh. However, some really really crappy gifts are best sent anonymously. Here are some tip to send your (white elephant) gift without revealing your identity.

Amazon’s Gift FAQ says the following “The price of the gift wrap will be displayed with the gift details after you have entered the shipping address. Prices vary depending on the size and shape of the item you have purchased.”

Here are the steps to add a product and send it anonymously:

  1. Visit the product page (eg: the “How to fart Louder and stronger” Book )
  2. Add it to your cart
  3. Visit your cart page 
  4. Check the “THIS IS A GIFT” box
  5. Proceed to Checkout (don’t forget to add your recipient’s address, not yours!)
  6. On the “GIFT” page, uncheck “Gift Receipt”
  7. Finalize your order, and wait for delivery!

Here’s an excerpt of a chat with Amazon Support regarding anonymous gifts. It confirms that the recipient will only see the package’s Tracking Number, your name will be hidden.

Side note: some products don’t offer the “Send as gift” option. You could try to create a new account with an alias; or send the gift to yourself and send it again to the recipient.
