Woman orders pillow printed with her face as a gift for her boyfriend & it arrives looking like a 'bald jacket potato'

A LOVED-UP woman was left in hysterics after she bought her new fella a cushion of her face – only for it to arrive with her face looking stretched and like a ‘bald jacket potato’.

Amy Compton struggled to find her new boyfriend Harry Hilton a present for his birthday, so when he told her to surprise him, she decided to blow up her face on a cushion.

However the joke backfired when the gift arrived with her hair cropped out of the photo and her face blown up out of proportion, leaving her in hysterics as friends compared it to an 'egg'.

Photos show the cushion zoomed in on Amy's face with almost all the hair on top of her face cropped away as if she was bald – and she dubbed herself a 'potato'.

Luckily the 21-year-old nursery nurse had also bought Harry, 28, a pair of trainers he had been pining for – but has ordered a replacement cushion with more of her hair included in the design to open too.

Amy, from Romford, London, said: "I was so shocked. It didn't arrive how I expected it to. I knew it wouldn't be exactly like the picture but I didn't expect it to make me look like a potato.

"It looks like a potato. I just look like a jacket potato. It's got a little bit of my hair on it.

"It's got some hair around the side, but on the top it doesn't look like I've got any hair at all. I just look bald.

"I've only been with my boyfriend for three months and it's the first birthday we've bought for each other. I have no idea what to buy for boys and he's really fussy.

"In the end I thought if he wants a surprise, he can have a surprise with my face on it. It was banter. He's got a good sense of humour so I knew something funny [would go down well] but that's not what I was expecting.

"When it arrived, I thought, 'what the hell is that'. I thought, 'I can't give this to him, what am I going to do?'."

Although she is still yet to give Harry his birthday present, Amy claims it might start a new tradition for them of buying each other gifts with their faces on.

Amy said: "Boys are just so hard to buy for. You can get girls perfume and jewellery and things like that, but it's so hard with boys.

"We're still getting to know each other. He doesn't know about the cushion yet.

"I'm waiting until the other cushion comes and then I'll give him that pillow and will tell him the story behind it and everything.

"I'll show him the pictures of it. He'll want to see the original, but I can't give him it because he'll wind me up for the rest of my life.”

She added that the cushion has gone down well in her group chats and everyone finds it hilarious. 

Amy continued: "They thought it was really funny, a lot of people were laughing. They said it looked like a potato as well, or an egg.

"It will probably start a tradition in the future. I think he'll probably try and get me something with his face on it. Maybe for Christmas.

"It will just go on from there I reckon. I might just have a whole wardrobe of just his face."
