If the best solutions solve problems you didn't even know you had, then the growing novelty delivery industry surely ranks among humanity's greatest feats. There we all were, living our lives without even contemplating sending eggplantsglitter or evil fortune cookies to someone — or nicer items, such as cacticocktail ingredients or personalised chocolate. Now, who isn't thinking about taking the easy route this Christmas, clicking a few buttons and organising amusing gifts for their friends, family and enemies?

Handwritten greeting card service Felt is taking the concept a step further to celebrate the season, however. As the usual festive tradition goes, Christmas is a time for giving and receiving presents — and, if you've been behaving badly throughout the year, to find a lump of coal in your stocking instead. Sure, it's an easy (albeit materialistic) way to motivate kids to be nice. For the US-based app, it's also an amusing way to punish 2017's naughtiest person.

Head to The Naughty List, and you can cast your vote for the unlucky recipient. Whatever the final winning count is, that's how many lumps of coal they'll receive. Voting closes on December 18, and the current leaders shouldn't come as a surprise. At the time of writing, the US president is leading the charge, followed by United States Federal Communications Commission chairman Ajit Pai — one of the figures behind the recent repeal of net neutrality — and Harvey Weinstein.

US residents can also send a lump of coal to their not-so-loved ones, accompanied by a handwritten Felt greeting card. It's the latter — via an app that lets you scrawl your own words onto the screen, which are then printed onto the paper — that is Felt's main business. Alas, while international orders are usually accepted, they won't be shipping coal beyond the US.
