What do you give to the person who already has everything they need? Well, what about a gag gift –something they don’t need, but will give them the best gift of all –laughter.
Prank gifts may make the receiver literally gag, or at least choke with laughter. But just because a gift is a novelty item doesn’t mean it’s not useful; many times, prank gifts do come in handy.
Just be careful, one day you may find yourself the victim –errr– recipient, of a re-gifted novelty item, or a stupid gift chosen especially for you. Just be sure to grin and bear it. In the meantime, try one of these gag gift ideas for the next big event in your special someone’s life. Let’s hope they have a sense of humor!
1. Zombie Handbook
Zombies are all the rage, but one day these creatures may get the best of us, and it’s prudent to know how to handle a Zombie apocalypse when the time comes. This book will give your gag gift recipient all the tools he or she needs to survive in the event of a catastrophic Zombie attack.
2. Inflatable Husband
He’ll never disappoint your best friend, and he’ll never make a pass at you when her back is turned. The Inflatable Husband is the perfect man! He can be put away at a moment’s notice and won’t make fuss, though like a real man, he may break wind when his bottom leaks.
Unfortunately, gifting someone with the Inflatable Husband will most likely need to be followed up with the next gift:
3. “Oh Crap, I’m Having A Baby!” Book
The joys of motherhood shouldn’t be glossed over, so give the expectant mother in your life this honest book on what to expect when she’s expecting.
The scary truth on 18 years of sleepless nights should bring just as much happiness to the new parents as their new bundle of joy.
4. Camouflage Golf Balls
This is the perfect gift for the golfer in your life, especially if they spend too much time on the links and not enough time with you.
Will they tire of trying to find their golf balls after teeing off, or will they relish the challenge of hunting for these real golf balls that blend in with the greens? Gift them and find out, and hope you don’t get the birdie!
5. Towel Clothes
Do you know someone so rushed for time that they can’t afford to waste a single minute drying off before dressing? Well, Towel Clothes are the solution.
After stepping out of the shower, they can step right into their towel clothes, which are made from 100% absorbent cotton. Voila! Dry and dress in one step, and save time and energy. Snazzy dressing has never been so comfortable or so easy.
6. The Food Lift
Also from The Weak Shop, this handy tool makes the perfect gift for someone who is just too tired or too lazy to eat with a fork or spoon. The hardest part about using this automatic feeder is loading it with their favorite foods.
They’ll thank you every time they are hungry, but simply can’t find the energy to lift the food to their mouth.

Sure, go ahead and laugh. Make fun of it, mock it, snicker at the thought; but, we know you secretly want one, and what better to give to someone than something we really want for ourselves?
If you’re feeling adventurous, and if you’re really close to the person and it won’t be creepy, throw in a copy of the Snuggie Sutra. Think Kama-Sutra, except with a Snuggie. *Ahem*
8. “How To Tie A Tie” Tie
The art of tying a tie is a skill passed down from man to boy, or even sometimes woman to boy … or woman to man. The problem is that the steps required to tie a proper knot are often forgotten if the skill isn’t used on a regular basis.
The “How To Tie A Tie” Tie solves that problem. The steps are printed right on the tie, so the recipient will always know exactly how to put a knot around his neck. When it comes time for a special event –say, a job interview — he is sure to make an impression by wearing this functional and fashionable tie.
9. The Butt Face Towel
Gag gift takes on a whole new meaning when you think of someone drying off their face with the part of the towel they used to dry off their parts that … well, are not their face.
The Butt Face Towel solves that problem by showing the user exactly which part of the towel to use to dry off what part of their body. It’s like a body map and towel all in one! Being sanitary –and dry- has never been so easy.
10. Just Send A Funny E-Card
When you’ve exasperated yourself trying to find the perfect novelty gift for someone, and nothing feels right, you can always turn to a funny e-card for an easy solution.
Whether it’s for your anniversary or to congratulate someone in your life on their special achievement, nothing says “I put very little thought into this” like searching for a card for 5 minutes, typing in an email address, and clicking “send”. E-Cards take all the thought out of thoughtfulness, and are always appreciated.
Gag Gifts Make Great Gifts For Everyone In Your Life, As Long As They Enjoy A Chuckle
From stupid gifts with no purpose other than to get a laugh, to gag gifts that may actually be useful, and to novelty gifts that are funny but don’t actually exist, presenting someone with the best gag gift will make them always remember your present with fondness, and may even be cause for them to be as thoughtful to you the next time you expect to receive the perfect present!
But remember — It’s OK to tickle someone’s funny bone, just don’t break their arm in the process. The best gag gifts are funny, but they are not hurtful.
Perhaps you should pick something off this stupid gag gift idea list and make your own wish list — otherwise, who knows what you’ll get.
Anti-theft Lunch Bags anyone?
