We’ve all gotten a bad gift. Maybe it was a pair of earrings for your unpierced ears from your partner of multiple years. Maybe it was athleisure from your mother with the not-so-subtle subtext of “maybe you should exercise more.” And maybe I’m sharing personal examples that would be better worked through in therapy rather than as an intro to this blog.
Gift giving is well, a gift, and try as they might, some people just aren’t gifted gift givers. For those of us unlucky enough to be on the receiving end of a terrible, unreturnable gift, Jackbox Games will offer exclusive gift replacements for a few lucky winners via its Upgift Giftaway! It’s simple. Just submit proof of your gift and share why it’s so terrible for the chance to receive a gift you actually want – Jackbox Games’ latest party pack, The Jackbox Party Pack 8, along with a Visa gift card.
That’s right, we’re asking you to share with us your worst gifts, because we know you deserve better. With our Upgift Giftaway, the Jackbox team will look through your bad gift submissions and commiserate. For ten lucky winners, we’ll turn that stale fruitcake into sweet, sweet Steam codes for our party games and $50 Visa gift cards.
Starting on December 1, 2021, we’ll be accepting Uplift Giftaway submissions through this form. You’ll be asked to share some personal information, proof of the bad gift (with the option to upload a file), and a description letting us know why it’s just so… wrong. You’ll also be asked to opt-in for us to share your terrible tale on our social media accounts. This is completely optional — we understand if you’d rather avoid your Aunt Carol seeing her weird ceramics get roasted. Choosing not to opt-in will not affect your chances of winning. Read the full rules here.
Submissions for the Upgift Giftaway will close on December 31st, 2021. Ten winners will be selected at random and contacted by January 5, 2021. $50 Visa gift cards and Steam codes for The Jackbox Party Pack 8 will be provided to the winners via email.
