A Christmas shopper was shocked when he ordered a mug as a present – and it arrived wrapped in 18FT of packing paper.

Ashley Moran, 27, ordered the £8 mug online from the Debenhams website in time for December 25.

But he was stunned when his parcel was delivered to his office in Bristol and he opened the box – to find it stuffed with reams of tissue paper and bubble wrap.

The regular-sized mug, featuring a smiling llama with the words ‘Good Hair Day’ printed across it, was hidden beneath a staggering 18 feet of wrapping.

And the box was also filled with 41 pockets of Mini Pak’r Air Pillow Packaging.

Ashley said: “I couldn’t believe it, I thought they must have made a mistake with my order.

“When I opened the box I realised it was pretty much all padding and wrapping. It was shocking.

“Everyone was taking the mickey out of me asking if I had ordered the whole shop.

“I pulled on the protective paper and it just kept going. It was never ending.”

Ashley added that he and his colleagues did see the funny side of it.

He said: “It did give us all a giggle. I’m over the moon my mug arrived in one piece. I just don’t think they needed to be quite so extra careful about it.”
