Does giving gifts to strangers make you happier? The people behind redditgifts think so, and are trying to monetize it.

I scroll to the bottom of the third link and it resets my browser in an annoying manner.

Also, I love gifts you internet strangers.

Be happy.

I never assumed that the redditgifts store wasn't taking a cut and I'm not sure why I should have. Am I supposed to be outraged?

I stand by my double negative.

The link under "giving gifts to strangers" makes more sense under monetize.

I'm pretty active on reddit and redditgifts. I love surprising random internet people with gifts, and getting surprised in the same turn.
