The Gift by Angelo Carbone
"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
"One of the most miraculous things I've ever seen."
- Richard Kaufman
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!
See why The Magic Café voted "The Gift" as the "2017 Trick of the Year".

Angelo Carbone did an astounding job on this trick with a minimal amount of sleight of hand and math. The only issue is with the gimmick and blending with your skin color but shouldn't really be a problem.
Thank you for your purchase and review.
The Gift is one of those magic tricks that everyone should have in my opinion, its very special, the effect you make if you do the trick smoothly is just amazing.
An absolute waste of money. The box arrived in poor shape (something they know well considering they give you tips on repairing it before they even teach the trick), and the trick itself is horrible. It requires the stupidest, most impossible to actually use prop that I've ever seen. Seriously, unless you only perform for little kids, you can't even do the trick. And even then, it can only be done 1 on 1, seated, because the angles are so bad!
I'll say it again: an absolute waste of money.
I asked for a refund. No answer. For shame.
