Christmastime is a time for gift giving. And while we mostly give gifts that are meaningful, or things we know the recipient truly would love to receive, there are times when giving gag gifts is part of Christmas fun. Holiday gag gifts are often given at office parties, or at gatherings of friends who have agreed to exchange humorous gifts. When you give gag gifts that are both funny and humorous, everyone has fun.

Christmas poop gifts are actually sweet treats that everyone will enjoy. Homemade Gifts Made Easy has this idea for Christmas poop. Take one or more jars and fill with red and green M&Ms for elf poop, chocolate coated cherries or apricots for reindeer poop, or marshmallows for snowman poop. You can also use mini Baby Ruth candy bars for Santa poop, but you will want to cover the original wrappers with red or green paper. Attach colorful labels telling the lucky recipient what kind of holiday poop is in each jar. If you like, make up short limericks or poems about the poop. You can also decorate the jars with holiday ribbon or stickers.

They Deserve suggests that you fill your gag gift Christmas stocking an array of interesting surprises such as a small box that has a toy snake or other scary item in it, or toys that make funny or weird noises, or a really ugly Santa figurine. You might also consider an empty jar that has a label that reads Winter Wind. Practical things, but things that still might make your recipient say, "Hmmm", will work too. Try a wire whisk, a paint stirrer, a packet of instant coffee, or some binder clips.
