If you have nosy family members, it can be tough to find a sneaky spot to conceal holiday presents. It’s probably even harder to hide them than it is to shop for them!
Sometimes, we may think we’ve picked a clever place, but it actually turns out to be the worst location of all.
TikToker Kassi (@kassparkk) is sharing about how she accidentally burned her own Christmas gift after her husband stashed it in the oven in an attempt to keep it a secret from her. The video of the mishap has received one million views.
“When your husband thinks a good hiding place for your Christmas gifts is the oven…” she wrote in the text overlay of the nine-second clip.
In the video, she held up a purple loungewear set to the camera, showing off the scorch marks on the fabric. Several TikTok users shared about how the use of the oven as a hiding spot would work for them.
“In my house, this would work because if it can’t be done in the air fryer, I don’t buy it,” commented one user.
“[Obviously] a bad decision this time, but I do know a family that always hid mom’s presents in the oven because she absolutely never used it. Worked for decades,” wrote another.
“I haven’t turned my oven on in 6 months. Someone could hide it there for me. I would never notice,” declared a third.
Some claimed that they didn’t realize the pajamas were ruined, believing that they were a “weird purple camouflage set,” had a gold design, or were Harry Potter-themed at first glance. Others tried to put a positive spin on the situation.
