With the Christmas season quickly approaching, I wanted to offer an easy suggestion to make sure your family and friends are appropriately surprised by their gifts on Christmas morning.

There’s enough to worry about during the Christmas season without having to worry if someone is trying to snoop into the gifts you’ve bought them. Let’s be honest – it’s just not fair when people peek at their gifts. You didn’t peek at your gifts, so no one else should peek either. Here you’ve spent your valuable time and money trying to get them the perfect gift for under the Christmas tree, and 2 weeks before Christmas they already know what it is! This ruins any sense of surprise when they actually do open the present. If you’ve been the victim of present snooping in the past, you don’t need to worry any longer. What you do need to do instead is order a gift alarm from Archie McPhee.

The Archee McPhee Gift Alarm

Here’s how it works: the gift alarm has a built-in motion detector that extends 4 feet around the gift(s). If some child (or adult) attempts to go near the gift, a siren will start to wail and a bright light will start to flash alerting all who are in the house that there is a snooper within their midst. The alarm will continue to sound until it is disarmed.

Who knows? This gift alarm could send more than one person to Santa’s naughty list in quite a hurry. If I caught someone snooping, there’s a good chance that they just might not even get that special something.

If you’re curious about the gift alarm, you can get it here for $13. Hey, that’s not a bad price at all for a little piece of mind – and, they even send it with batteries so you can set the alarm as soon as you take it out of the box.
