Was it labeled? Transparent?
Did you know by sound? Smell? Touch? Taste?
Was it a physical container? An electronic file? A book? A building?

Did you know by how it looked? How you got it? Who packaged it? Who brought it to you? Or you to it? Was it a bag? Box? Envelope? Package? A gift? Had it been mailed? Otherwise shipped? Did the shape of the packaging give clues as to the content? Writing on it? Color of it? Quality?

Was it something you had asked for/showed interest in? Was it part of a set that had been wrapped separately (so you opened one, saw that the other was similar in shape, and extrapolated from there)? Was it the exact same thing as one you had already unwrapped?
Had it been wrapped at a store so you recognized the wrapping paper? Had you bought this item for another person?

Could you tell what the gift was due your sense of smell? touch? hearing? taste?

Is deduction relevant?

Do you have X-ray vision? :)

Was the gift properly wrapped? was it somehow more revealing of its contents than average?

Is it relevant when you had expressed your interest?

Did the relevant labeling reveal the giver? delivery company? seller / warehouse? gift wrapper? manufacturer?

When an item is bought in your wish list, it it removed from it? that's exactly it, so time for the...


*** SPOILER ***
When sharing my Christmas wishlist with family, I just sent a link to my Amazon wishlist like I've done the past years. As I found it during the first year of doing this... when someone buys something from the list (either directly through Amazon from wishlist, or can be marked as such), it gets removed from the list. When I later went back to add some new stuff, I noticed one item suddenly missing(paper mario color splash, for those wondering)... and sure enough, that was what my brother got me for Christmas.
