How to pull the perfect Christmas Present Poker Face

How to pull the perfect Christmas Present Poker Face

It is Christmas morning and the anticipation is killing you, all you want to do it dive into your stack of presents and find out what your close friends and family have got you this year.

There is no finer sight than the face of a loved one opening a gift and being overcome with joy.

But with presents from your un-hip Grandparents or the Aunt you have seen for donkey years, the unwrapping of presents becomes a bit of a Russian Roulette. You might not like the gift, but how can you upset or offend anyone at Christmas!

Well Ladbrokes Poker are here to save the day, as they’ve put together some pictures to help you bluff your way to appreciating every present you get.

The ‘Are You Sure This Is For Me?’ Face

A reoccurring theme with those who tend to leave their Christmas preparations until the last minute. If you are part of a large family, mislabelling one gift can lead to domino effect of everyone getting the wrong presents. Imagine your Grandfather’s reaction to opening his present and finding the latest Jay-Z album, whilst younger brother unwraps a new pair of beige slacks 4 sizes too big.

The ‘This is Awesome, 15 Years Ago’ Face


Throw your mind back to the late 1990’s – every child’s dream Christmas present was an endless supply of Pokemon cards in quest of catching them all.

Well your Uncle clearly missed the turn of the Millennium and is under the impression you are still a wannabe Ash Ketchum. Unwrapping the latest Pokemon edition for your GameBoy may be nostalgic, but not suitable for a 25 year old adult.

The ‘Too Intimate For An Audience’ Face

Possibly many peoples worst nightmare? Opening a rather saucy gift in front of your entirely family is almost enough to turn anyone red with embarrassment.

Between your close friends, it is just a bit of banter giving each other some sexy lingerie or a blow up doll. It isn’t likely your Grandparents will fancy playing a game of “sexy spin the bottle” after their Christmas dinner.
