I thought that’s how you know it’s from ann Summers/ Love honey the lack of logo and plain brown box.

Don’t other company’s out there put logo tape all over the packaging.
"Wrecked a lot of people's surprises" is quite a strong term.

I agree 100% I ordered a .Breville HotCup Hot Water Dispenser for my daughter as a present, it came without any packaging with a big address label stuck to the box . . if it wasn't on special offer I would have sent it back

It's true tho, imagine if you ordered a Nintendo switch for your kid and the postman comes up with a big brown box that's got Nintendo in big red writing all over it and the kid answers the door !

Yeah, the kid would be distraught realising that FC was actually the postman.

I get what you mean though. If it's just a generic plain box from a retailer but with their name on the outside then that isn't so bad, but I can see what you mean though if you were to receive a product in just it's retail box with a label slapped on it. But I suppose though in some ways people can also complain about items being over-packaged too, I guess that hopefully you'd be the one yourself to answer the door to the delivery person.
If this, is that important to you, you should select the gift option at checkout.

Especially if it has 'blow up doll' or 'fleshlight' written on the box and requires a signature.

I found a vibrator recall postcard online that you could print out for something like a king dong in large print. I sent it to a friend of the Mrs ( I had actually known her from years before I met the Mrs), via signed for delivery. She was never able to look the postman in the eye again. She did see the funny side though.

That's exactly how mine came from Amazon. Labels impossible to remove from the box. Just glad that the person who it is for doesn't live here.

I ordered a xmas gift that came the same way, no packaging and address label on the product box - I rang amazon to complain and said they were testing this method to save on packaging and that it did highlight this when you go to the checkout with the option to select it being boxed. I went back in to look and yes it is there but it’s so small and discreet, you can easily miss it!

Ah ok. I'm all for saving on packaging but did think it should have had an outer wrapper with the labels on. When you think of some of the ways they pack stuffi - small, unbreakable item in a large cardboard box stuffed with yards of that brown paper they use!

I did buy a rather expensive Lego model which can well packaged from another retailer, but on my address label it state what it was!
