There are plenty of funny gag gifts on the market, everything from silly dad jokes to offensive gifts for your boss. Some are even on the edge of being inappropriate. The first and most important thing to consider is: who is it for?
Age can play a big part in whether or not the recipient will get the punch line, so here's a rough guide on how to choose a gag gift based on age.
For young ones, a funny and practical gag gift is probably the best choice. A gift they can also play with and reuse for other play dates would be good, like the snake in a can. There are many different theme gifts that would be perfect, including familiar cartoon faces, books, and funny snacks.
Buying a gag gift for adults is a bit easier. There is a whole range of different gifts that can be appreciated. For the funny guy, a typical practical joke might be enough. For the ones with a more naughty and risky sense of humor, an R-rated gift can be the perfect choice.
Funny gag gifts are good for family members, since you may not need to worry about crossing lines as much as with, say, a coworker. Risque gag gifts can work better for close friends or special occasions like a bachelor or bachelorette party.
From grandparents to young kids, there are gag gifts that fit everyone! Funny and practical gifts don't have an age limit, and gag gifts are not an exception.
Harmless gag gifts that suit everyone no matter the age include gifts with straight-forward humor or silly items that won't cross any boundaries or insult anyone, like a pack of batteries with a note that says "Gift not included."
If you have a great relationship with each other, you can consider it pretty safe. Buying a gag gift for a boss or co-worker on the other hand - you might have to think twice about what you're getting. Sticking to a funny and harmless gag gift might be the best choice.
Have you cracked any general jokes around the person you want to buy a gag gift for? That is a good way to feel out how much leeway you have in terms of humor. Do you get the impression of their humor being slightly sarcastic or naughty? Then you might be able to buy an explicit gift.
It's always a good idea to hold off on any gift that may be considered as offensive if you're not sure you know the person well enough. If so, go for a safe gag gift, or it could change the mood in the office!
Make sure that the recipient has the same humor as you or will laugh at the gift you are getting them. Do you have an inside joke with him or her? Even better!
Be extra careful if you're looking at gag gifts that could be related to controversial topics like religion or politics to avoid misunderstandings!
Let's face it: we can't all have the same sense of humor. What one might find offensive, another might find hilarious. If you're not very close with your co-worker, it might be better to keep it as professional as possible and refrain from a gag gift.
But of course, that depends on where you work! Getting a gag gift is about being able to tell when it's appropriate and for whom and this is something that only you can do based on your relationship with the recipient.
Is your gag gift just funny or can you actually use it? A gift that gives more than just a smile is serving a double purpose. Sometimes you can be surprised what a funny gift can do for you.
A funny accessory in your handbag, a funny coffee mug at work, or even a cookbook that will make you smile are great gifts that can continue to bring joy to the recipient of the gift even after it's been opened.
You may have read this article and are now thinking, "Maybe I shouldn't get a gag gift after all," as it can be a bit too personal or too touchy of a subject. Luckily, we have plenty of other great gift ideas for you to consider!
You can give anyone - siblings, co-workers, old schoolmates, or even your partner - a gag gift. But just remember that you have to consider your relationship with that person first before buying something too over-the-top.
Also, remember to look for gifts that your friends or family will find amusing, and maybe even useful. And avoid inappropriate choices, unless you know that the person will get the joke and enjoy it!
