Australian breakfast radio host Abby Coleman has shared how she got the shock of her life when she realised she'd accidentally gifted her grandma a vibrator for her 90th birthday.

Telling her co-hosts Matty Acton and Stav Davidson on the Hit Network's B105, she explained: "I wanted to send her flowers, she loves flowers, so I jumped online quickly. You know you can send them next day and I thought I’d send them early before she goes to church.

"Now I had the kids around. So you know when you sort of do it quickly? I’m so good at online shopping. I can do it with one hand on the phone."

"I went online and I saw on this website - they had lilies, beautiful lilies, she loves lilies, so ‘click’ and she also likes spritz… and they had that and I thought what a great little packet… so it was just flowers and these drinks. I didn’t think much of it. Just ordered it," she added.

But she soon received a notification saying "batteries included" which had her puzzled.  

"And I thought, 'Why are batteries included?'. Now why would batteries be included? I went in and just thought 'you must be joking'."

"I was so mortified that for my nana’s 90th, I have sent her a bunch of lilies and what can only be described as 'THE SURFER'. I sent her an adult toy for her 90th!"

Abby quickly called her mum, who assured the host her grandma wouldn't know what it was, but said she'd get there early in case she decided to take it to church.

"I got my mom to try to intervene and try to get it," she said. "I called the company and said look you’re going to have to change it. I don’t care what you’ve got if you could just change it on board. So they reached out to their driver to see if they have anything else, and they’ll deliver that and keep it for someone else. SO someone else would have gotten that!"

Matty and Stav insisted anyone could have made the mistake after seeing the way the gift was presented online.
