"Angelo fooled me with his original version, and the finished product is just wonderful. It's a beautiful trick and a very versatile prop with all the trademark elegance we'd expect from one of close-up magic's finest living inventors." 
- Derren Brown 

Rarely does a secret get published that ticks all the boxes (no pun intended). 

A unique concept from master creator Angelo Carbone, The Gift is an effect with a method so clever that you'll feel a giddy urge to reveal the method to your spectators. We don't suggest that you actually do this. 

The spectator deals the cards face up and stops wherever they want. They open the gift box themselves and remove the prediction inside. The prediction will ALWAYS be correct! 

Bonus routine included where your prediction is torn in half, and half of it is in view the ENTIRE time before a card is selected. The other half is inside the box and, of course, both torn halves match perfectly! 

The spectator and the box do the hard work, but you come out the winner. 

The Gift is a self-contained, precision-crafted device that makes the effect easy to perform. It doesn't use any indexes or loads, and resets in seconds. Open the box, set up the device, and you'll be performing within minutes. 

What you get: 

- The Gift Box 
- Deck of Cards 
- 40 min instruction video with Angelo Carbone 
- The ability to perform a miracle 

Available in Standard and in Limited Edition Gold 

Give your spectators "The Gift" of an impossible moment!

HORRIBLE ACCESSORY Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 20th, 2017
This is just a quick review - The box is great. The small accessory that comes with it is CHEAP and garbage. This would have been much better if they had a custom made accessory with the small gimmick installing properly instead of just with some cheap blue tac. Sorry but this ruined it for me. When you are paying this amount of money you expect that the whole product is quality.

Not too happy. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 20th, 2017
First off, let me say that the concept is brilliant. My frustration is rooted in the fact that I had to perform quite a bit of work on the box as described in the video that shows immediately when you access the online instructions.
For the price, I would expect a finished product. The explanation of "adhesive migrating" due to worldwide shipment seems rather lame. I suspect the more truthful explanation is a hurry to fill demand.
That said, the idea is brilliant, and if I can ever get it to work properly, it will be an outstanding effect.

Super powerful Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 19th, 2017
It's not often that an effect comes along that is this powerful! Not only that, it is an incredibly easy trick to perform. Your volunteer literally can choose any card, the deck is in their hands the whole time. No awkward forces, they choose their own card. Then, they (not you) open the box with your correct prediction inside. It doesn't get more powerful than that. Everything literally happens in their hands. The methods taught are genius! None of my magician friends had any idea how it was done, even after I let them examine the box!
There is one small recommendation I will post in the q&a section. This is a tiny thing and actually gets touched on in the video, but it helped my presentation.
I know 75 bucks seems high for an effect, but this one is worth every penny. I am actually about to order a second unit so I won't be without this powerful tool.

The great disappointment Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 19th, 2017
When you see this trick you would want to buy it like I did however penguin magic of course can not let you know what is included in the gimmick.
I bought it in good faith however disappointed does not cover my feelings when I discovered that the trick involved wearing something on your thumb no guesses what that is eh.
What was supplied did not fit my thumb so I contacted penguin magic and said this trick is not inexpensive and for me it was unfit for purpose. I received an email back saying that they could not refund just because the gimmick didn't fir my body parts.
So are they leaving me with a useless trick. YES THEY ARE

THINK TWICE ABOUT GETTING THIS TRICK IF YOU HAVE LARGE HANDS.
THINK TWICE ABOUT PENGUIN MAGIC IF THEY TREATTHERE CUSTOMERS THIS WAY.

I HAVE USED PANGUIN MAGIC FOR SOME TIME PERHAPS I NEED TO LOOK ELSEWHERE FOR A REASONABLE SUPPLIER OF MAGIG TRICKS AND EQUIPMENTA

Fantastic!!! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 19th, 2017
The gift is more than a routine, it's a utility device to perform incredible miracles. This is the greatest card trick I now own and perform. The previous greatest was "Return Flight" by Rick Lax, which I also highly recommend. (For gimmicked tricks, I love "Little Door", "Under Wraps", "cheek-to-cheek", "Ace", etc. but this is a level above miracle - one card, selected openly by the spectator, is predicted under what appears to be very normal conditions.)

I performed the routine shown in the video about a dozen times so far and the reactions are phenomenal. Where else can you reveal a PRE-WRITTEN boxed prediction for a freely chosen card? That's right the prediction is already in the box.

Everything is provided to perform the same exact routine in the video and it requires very little physical skill and mostly presentation and a little boldness. (Although, it might take a little practice to consistently hit the "sweet spots" - if you buy this, you'll know what I mean).

The video instructions included are fantastic - clear, comprehensive, very useful. There is one routine where one half of a letter is given to a spectator and the other half with the prediction is in the box. I haven't performed it, but hopefully will soon (it requires some one-time prep). It's absolutely genius and takes the trick to the next level, closing the door on any rational explanation.

The Gift is absolutely incredible, except for the price, which I think is a little expense for what you get. Don't get me wrong, what you get is great and you couldn't easily create yourself (the time involved, IMO would cost more than buying the product), but I don't think the less than premium material quality of the product warrants a high premium price, except to deter curious secret seekers. Another more serious quality issue, is that certain components within the box did not line up 100% flat and flush (even before there is something raising them). For the price of this box, there is no excuse for that all. Big price (and I bought the $99 limited edition), should equal big quality. Thankfully this workmanship issue is somewhat obfuscated by the overall design of the box. Is the box examinable? IMO, not for more than a brief period of time, as the spectator might bend or rip something in the box while even casually moving their fingers around. That’s aside from the fact that visually, things did not line up 100% in my box. If my box was created with just a little more love and precision, "The Gift" would be more spectator-proof and worth what I paid for it. For "The Gift" manufacturer - Take a look at “Sharpie Through Card” (although not examinable) -- perfecto workmanship. Hopefully, my quality issues are not pervasive with all boxes.

I will add one caveat with the shown routine, about half the time when the spectator deals the cards the selected card won't be 100% freely chosen. Meaning, the next face down card might need to be the selected card. I did have someone confront me and say that the last card they stopped on was their chosen card, not the next face-down card. In that instance, my patter was that we both know the all face-up cards, what's even more amazing is what we don't know...which is "this" face down card. And then I reiterate they could have stopped before the face down card, and I show the face cards after it -- they could have stopped anywhere so it didn't really matter anyway. Any other suggestions for how to handle this?

Even with the stated issues, this is a unique, easy miracle. A little pricey, but if you can, give yourself the greatest gift buy buying "The Gift", you shouldn’t be disappointed.

Add to cart, solid 5 stars.

This exceeded my expectations greatly. When you first open the box, you are greeted with the gift box, and the password. The secret is insanely genius, and everything is hidden in plain sight. The support Angelo provides on The Gift Facebook group is really professional. I can't wait to use this in my upcoming gig. For the price of this, this is a steal. there aren't any funny moves that are unnatural, and the teaching here that they provide and the routines are surreal. One of the best purchases that I've ever done.

Regards,
Brent

This is a beautifully made gimmick and ridiculously fooling! I've seen Angelo do this multiple times where it fools and amazes magicians and laymen. I'd highly recommend, you won't be disappointed.
