Forget Gifts, Send a Lump of Coal This Year Instead

Remember when Ship Your Enemies Glitter opened up last January? It’s the service where you could mail your friends, family, and enemies a package of glitter that would explode upon being opened. The point being glitter is impossible to clean up and it’s fun to frustrate people sometimes.

Unfortunately the founder closed operations a few days after opening (although I think they’re still running under new leadership), but we’ve seen a lot of spin off companies try to tackle similar things since then. Well, with the holidays right around the corner, yet another company that operates similarly has sprung up. With NaughtyCoal, you can send anybody you want a lump of coal for a holiday gift this year.

Some of the popular FAQ on the page consist of: Is this real? And, why would I want to send coal to somebody? The answers, respectively, are “Yes, 100 percent real!” and “To help Santa figure out who’s been naughty and who’s been nice. He’s been using Big Data last few years and it hasn’t been very accurate.”

It’s a great gift to send people, especially those hard to shop for friends and family members. Maybe it’ll teach them to be more defined when it comes to asking for gifts next year!

Per the website, it’s as easy as one, two, and three:

STEP 1

Identify someone who’s been naughty this year and let them know by sending them a NaughtyCoal Package for Christmas.

STEP 2

Our team of trained elves prepare the package and Santa writes out your message. We then ship it out a week before Christmas to ensure timely delivery.

STEP 3

The recipient opens the package. A state of confusion is then followed by flashbacks of all the naughty things they did this year.

Hurry up though – the team put a countdown clock on their site. In six days and some change the orders will be closed for this holiday season.
