    In a supermarket, there were many Chinese New Year gifts. I saw a beautifully packaged basket of eggs, but it had an astronomical price tag. I supposed that these eggs were specially raised, and they should make a wonderful New Year’s gift. The price for that basket was a dozen times higher than regular eggs.

    I just got a promotion and will soon be married to my fiancée, so I just had to grin and bear it, as I needed to buy some good gifts for my boss and in-laws.

    I was frustrated to find that the heavy basket only contained around 20 eggs, with two bags of sand underneath. If I gave this to my boss, I would be called a phony. If I gave this to my future in-laws, they’d think I was a cheapskate for sure!

    Anything during the holiday season, as long as it comes with a beautiful package, also comes with an unusually high price tag. Exceptions are few and rare. Normally, tea, wine, and cigarettes are hit the hardest, but now it also extends to fruit.

    Check out the deceptive packaging of these gift items below.
