Sometimes the best of intentions go terribly wrong! Some birthday gift ideas are better than others – and some are not so smart. Take the case of a guy named Hu Seng, from southern China. Hu thought it would be fabulous to surprise his girlfriend on her birthday by mailing himself to her in a sealed box. Unfortunately, the box got lost in transit for three hours, and when Hu’s girl opened it in front of friends, she found him passed out and near death from lack of oxygen. What ‘great surprise‘ totally backfired on you?

I guess I have been lucky, because I have planned some pretty elaborate surprises, but they went off without a hitch!

One of the best surprises I pulled off was for one of my best friends, a ‘surprise party’  for her 40th birthday! Her birthday is in November, but I planned it early and made it a Halloween themed party and had it in one of the last weekends in October. I took her to Lover’s Lane and bought her a super cute costume, and told her it was an early birthday gift for a Halloween party I wanted her to go with me to, as my husband was out of town that weekend.

I totally surprised my friend, and I would have been devastated if after all that planning, it had back-fired in some way!
