Rules for Pranking

As you plan your pranks, remember that you are pulling these gags on someone that you love. You should try to avoid doing anything cruel or that would toy with someone emotionally. Think fun and funny. It might seem hilarious at first to trick your man into thinking that you are pregnant or leaving him, but those types of gags can bring fear and doubt into your relationship. Instead, focus on things that you can do that are simply good jokes.

Online and Cell Phone Pranks

Technology is a great tool for many tasks, including pranking. For light gags, consider changing the language on his Internet search pages and social media or switching your contact name in their phone to something silly, such as a celebrity's name. For something more advanced, there are sites on the Internet that you can send text messages from, or even set up a new phone number that forwards to yours. Flood your boyfriend with fake texts all day from an anonymous friend or anything funny you can think of. You could also forward that new number to his, and then place an ad on an online classified site giving that number out to sell something ridiculous, such as a collection of unused adult diapers or something else that would result in odd phone calls. Have fun, be creative and be silly with it.

Pranks for Home

If you live together, you'll have a lot of opportunity for pranks around the house. Tape bubble wrap to the bottom of the toilet seat so that it pops when he sits down. Put a sticker that matches the remote control over the sensor so that it won't function correctly. Fill the refrigerator and freezer to the brim, but with only one item -- preferably something he doesn't enjoy. Turn off the ceiling fans, and cover the tops with confetti for when he turns them back on, or replace all of his underwear with thongs. Feel free to get goofy.

Personal Pranks That Work

Simple yet personal gags might include switching to order of keys on someone's key chain, replacing their coffee with decaf, putting scented air fresheners of a smell they dislike in their car or even putting a balloon on the tailpipe of a that car so it will pop when they start it. Something more advanced would be to use one of the websites that makes custom temporary tattoos and having a large one made of your boyfriend's name. Apply it in a ridiculous location on yourself and paint a little silicone fake skin from a costume shop on top to make it look as if it is freshly healing. Show it off proudly to your man as if it was your way of professing your love to him. Another idea, if you're handy with a sewing machine, is to temporarily hem all of his pants up by two or three inches. Hide one unaltered pair though, just in the case he has an important meeting that day.
