An amusing or downright side-splitting gift at Christmas is perfect for the person who has everything and prefers humor over sentimentality. Your gift recipient need not be the jolly joke-telling type -- a funny gift that you made with your own two hands can brighten the Grinchiest of moods. Instead of purchasing the proverbial whoopie cushion, create a homemade gag gift that delivers humor with heart in one package,
Bellybutton Cleaner Gag Gift
Make the deluxe, holiday-themed, bellybutton cleaner gag gift for the person who has everything. Use looped green and red chenille stems to create a small, oval-shaped brush head. Secure the brush head to a wooden dowel painted with snowman and reindeer shapes. Add a note stating that you couldn’t think of any other gadget that wasn’t already owned by the recipient.
Candy Poop Gag Gift
Funny candy “poop” is a classic homemade Christmas gift for small budgets. Use a baggie of the candy with a cute card as a small present for a neighbor, coworker or friend. Cover raisins with chocolate to create “Reindeer Poop.” Place one cup of the candy into a decorative bag and add a reindeer-patterned card. Cover marshmallows with chocolate to create “Snowman Poop,” and add a snowman-patterned card.
DIY Christmas Gag Gift
Use the trendy DIY movement to create a homemade Christmas gift that provides the instructions and supplies for an expert-level project. For example, if the recipient would love to build an armchair or couch, fill the box with twigs, threads and instructions on how to build a frame with the twigs and weave the threads into fabric upholstery.
Pet Snowman Gag Gift
Create a pet snowman as a Christmas gag gift for a pet lover who cannot have animals. Fill a large, clear jar with a plastic carrot, two small pieces of coal, a corncob pipe and water. Secure the lid on the jar tightly. Add a small note stating the name, age, likes and dislikes of the snowman.
Universal Repair Kit Gag Gift
Create a universal repair kit to use as a homemade Christmas gag gift for someone known for being accident-prone. Paint a black shoebox with the words “Universal Repair Kit.” Add sticky putty, duct tape, super glue, wood glue, plastic ties, twine, rubber bands, a pocketknife and a travel sewing kit to the box. Secure a card to the box that states, “No matter what you broke, our friendship is no joke. Now please take this kit and go fix it!”
