Good Gag Gift Ideas


The thing about gag gifts is that the laughs and memories that they elicit can last much longer than more expensive and traditional gifts. A good gag gift doesn't have to cost much and can many times be constructed with items that you can find in your home or the nearest five-and-dime. Good gag gift ideas can really "get" the recipient and can add laughs to the celebration.

Gift Not Included

  • A variation on the electronic gift that is traditionally packaged with a message saying that the required batteries are not included, place a package of batteries in a box with a message that reads "Gift Not Included." For fun, you can wrap the gift in either birthday or seasonal wrapping, attaching a bow and a card.

Homemade Bug Killer

  • Obtain two similarly sized wooden blocks, labeling one "A" and the other "B." Give the blocks with instructions that read "Place bug on Block A. Place Block B firmly on Block A, with bug in between."

Snowman Poop

  • A good gag gift for the Christmas season, take a glass jar with a lid and fill it with marshmallows. Label the jar "Snowman Poop." You can also make "Reindeer Poop" with small red candies like M&Ms or Red Hots, and "Elf Poop" with any round chocolate candy.

Staw Hat

  • Fill a box with straw pieces. Place a note in the box that reads "Straw hat: assembly required."

Jar of Treats

  • Fill a glass jar with different types of candies and treats. Glue the lid on so that the person cannot get to the treats.

Hillbilly Potpurri

  • Fill a jar or canister with beer caps, peanut shells, beef jerky and other typically lowbrow items to make up a genuine "hillbilly" scent.
