Mystery gifts at schools?

It's like Christmas in February for universities across the country.

Except it's random and bizarre.

Amazon packages have been showing up at post-secondary institutions across Canada – including four campuses on Vancouver Island.

Student unions have been getting bombarded with shipments from Amazon containing random gadgets like flashlights, headphones and even sex toys – and they have no idea who's sending them.

"Every couple of days, we seem to get something weird in the mail. Today we got fishing tackle," said Michael Glover, a student services coordinator at Camosun College.

The seemingly unexplainable phenomenon has been popping up on campuses coast-to-coast, including Simon Fraser University in Burnaby all the way to the University of New Brunswick's Moncton campus.

Amazon has no explanation either.

No word on whether any Okanagan schools have been receiving any of the mystery packages.
