A debutante receives hilarious gift in the form of a sardine can from her “18 treasures” – and we can’t help but laugh along with her! Would you also dare gift your friend with unconventional, funny gifts on their special occasion? But it can be a challenge to top this one! LOL
Debutante Receives Hilarious Gift
What’s the best gift you received from your friends? Of course, some would say that material things don’t matter because the gift of friendship is more than enough. Still, it would be nice to get some from your friends during special days or milestones in your life.
During debuts, the debutante usually receives special gifts from her “18 treasures.” These gifts can vary, but they’re expected to be good ones that the wishes of these “treasures” for the birthday girl.
But during the debut of Danah Elyka Simbajon in Dumaguete City, central Philippines, everyone had a good laugh as the debutante receives hilarious gift of a sardine can from one of these “18 treasures!” LOL.

To be fair, this friend explained that she “swam” to the depths of the oceans to find this gift – and chose it because it symbolizes their friendship. After all, if you can be as close as the sardines packed in a can, then you really are super close, huh?
The friend’s analogy is, of course, easy to understand, but everyone still had a good laugh over seeing a debutante receive a sardine can.
But if you’re worried that she didn’t get a proper gift to complete her 18 treasures, don’t be. Her friend actually prepared another, more serious, gift for her but it’s really the sardines that top all the others. LOL.
