Gift exchanges have somehow become a stockpile of life’s more boring and bland items. To combat this, add a little spice and laughter to the proceedings with a gag gift. Whether it’s a family member you’ve known your whole life or a co-worker you’ve just met, chances are there’s a gift that’s tailor-made for them.
Laughs are a natural part of any gag gift, and sometimes the item draws more laughs than you could ever imagine. Clothing seems to be a popular choice for this category. Personalize a pair of socks with their image or a funny pic that always makes them laugh. The same goes for t-shirts that can hold just about any image your can dream up for the exchange.
Be bold and brave with sexy gifts that thrill, while sometimes adding a laugh or two. Edible panties always seem to be the joke gift of parties. You could also print your condoms for a customized flare. If you want to go even further, blow up dolls are the standard, no matter who is getting the gift. Adding it to a group of gifts can also spice up the sentiment. Nothing plays up the notion more than sex toys, so feel free to go wild on this one.
There’s a lot of religious gift ideas out there that bring a smile, without offending the recipient. Cards with humorous sayings and funny images are a great option. Bobbleheads as well as accessories carry their own special meanings while still having the ability to provoke a giggle or two.
Age Related Gifts
Age appropriate funny gifts can highlight a milestone birthday around the exchange or play with the perception of the recipient. The classic cane or walker still brings a laugh, even if it has been in use for decades. Everything geriatric or baby related seems to play well for these types of gifts. Let your imagination fly with diapers, bandages, geriatric medical products, baby care items—the more the better.
This category of gifts are arguably the most difficult to pull off, but also the most rewarding if they pay off. One of the crown jewels of prank gifts is the lottery ticket. Pre-printed with a winning set of numbers and an exorbitant jackpot, it’s a get rich quick dreamer’s delight. Of course, the ticket is just a hoax and it says so in fine print on the back. Another classic is the box with fake poo inside. In most cases, the box will look like just another package in the mail, but it’s not even close. If you want to change up the look, switch to fake vomit instead.
Be the star of your gift exchange with funny and surprising items. It’s all about having fun and giving a present that will keep them laughing. The results are something that everyone will be talking about long after the exchange is over.
