Gag Gifts

Gag gifts can be very funny. They can also cause pain for the recipient, so you must choose your gag gift carefully. Be sure your recipient has a sense of humor about what you are going to "gag" him about. The gag, while funny, must also be tasteful rather than ridiculing some fault of the recipient.

Some people make jokes about themselves, their fat, their bald head, their bad leg that makes them limp, etc. It's okay for them to ridicule their own body but can really hurt when someone else does the ridiculing. Often they ridicule themselves because they are sensitive about what they see as a problem and want to say something funny about it before anyone else does. So approach these gag gifts as a friend and with caution and concern for the recipient.

-For the guy who's always looking for an excuse to go fishing, get him a T-shirt or a coffee mug that says just that - I'd rather be fishing or Gone fishing. You can also get a get talking fish to hang on his wall.

-Get a bumper sticker that shows their latest hobby. Grandma's love the ones that say I'd rather be with my grandkids 'cause I can play and send them home, etc.

-For someone's fortieth birthday, hang black crepe paper, decorate a cake with black icing saying "over the hill" in white icing.

-Someone you know is retiring? Get a sign that looks like a handicapped sign but says "retired" and the date of his retirement to hang in his car.

-Your recipient has a hard time making up their minds. Get them a affirmation fortune telling ball. Every time you turn it upside down, you get a new affirmation that is cheerful or a compliment that is cheerful and will lift their spirits.

-Is someone always stealing your pen at work? Get a shocking pen. It delivers a small electrical shock when he picks it up and tries to use it.

-Your Dad thinks he is the best BBQ Chef around? Get him an apron saying the "Iron Chef" or one that has flames coming up from the bottom him, or that says he's the King of Meats.

-You have someone in the family who is always wanting to bet to prove his point? Get him a two headed quarter so he can always be right.

-The latest gag T-shirt came from a recent TV series. Get a T-shirt that says "You're Fired". Who will love this? Anyone with a sense of humor.
