A cheeky aunty has pranked her sister with a noisy, glitter-filled gift for her niece, after she was specifically asked not to buy the present.

Hannah Sewell said her sister told her not to buy a drum kit for her niece’s birthday gift – so she bought her one anyway.

“When mum says no to a drum kit, you get the niece a drum kit,” Hannah says. But not content with going against her sister’s wishes, she took the prank even further by filling the gift and birthday card with glitter. Because we all know that glitter is the root of all evil.

Hannah shared the video to TikTok, which has been viewed more than one and a half million times. And the comments are brutal.

“Nah sorry, she might be cool with it, but boundaries are being crossed,” one person wrote.

“Honestly if someone did this to my kids I wouldn’t accept gifts off of them again,” said Naomi Jordan.

“So not only do you buy her kid something she said no to. You’re now gonna give her extra mess to clean up that’ll take weeks,” wrote another follower.

“You wait till you have kids, their mum will take revenge to a whole new level!”

‘Pay back won’t be good’

Hannah eventually replied with a follow-up video of her niece opening the gift – and let’s just say all went according to plan.

Her niece opened the present on a brown couch, which ended up completely covered in gold glitter.

Hannah admits her sister still loves her, but ‘pay back won’t be good’.

  • Omg glitter is no allowed in our home i will kill the person for doing that to my kids????


  • If the sisters have a pranking relationship why not! And glitter ????

  • The glitter might pass as a prank, but the drum set is just rude.


  • I think it’s rather disrespectful to give something what is requested not to give.

    • I wouldn’t be happy when this would happen to myself and would certainly talk about it.


  • If the siblings have a good relationship then it’s all fun and games. I could see my siblings doing this

  • It’s a bit disrespectful really.


  • My husbands siblings rry to compete for the noisiest gift for my kids each yr.


  • I’d just tell her that payback’s a b***h and then make her stay and clean up the mess. Any that I found later would be put into an envelope and sent to her sister. The drum would be taken to her sister’s every time she visited (hopefully when her sister has had a hard night).


  • I’m sure this would be the sort of prank my two daughters would play on each other and once the initial annoyance wore off, they would laugh about it. As for the drum kit, just perhaps the niece had asked her aunty to buy it because she knew her mum wouldn’t want her to have it. Must admit I found that the noisier the toy, the quicker the child got over it. Think I would just roll with what life gives you and not get too carried away with it. A good vacuum cleaner usually picks up glitter quite well.


  • That’s not cool in any way. The deliberate buying of a gift that she was asked not to, the glitter, the sharing on socials. Nope


  • Yeah, not funny. Boundaries! I have a sister who would totally ignore boundaries so she’s no longer in our life – the list was long, vicious, unsafe, and bordering psychotic. If she has kids one day, then payback will be sweet.


  • I am totally this Aunty!!


  • I think this is rather disrespectful and I wouldn’t be pleased.
