Great Gag Gifts

Friday, November 26th, 2010

Before you decide on which gag gift to offer, it is worth remembering that not all of them are created equal. In the last decades, many of these types of gifts were mainly about sexual innuendo, bodily functions or alcohol, fortunately, the times have changed and while gag gifts of this nature may still exist, they have also been replaced, in many cases, by gag gifts that are both more thoughtful and practical – while remaining funny and sarcastic. Fortunately, these gifts have escalated to the “next level” which makes them a wonderful, clever and original idea.

However, remember a few guidelines when choosing these great gag gifts. Always do some “homework” on the person who will be receiving the gift. Are they history buffs? How about offering them an historic newspaper with what happened on the day they were born? Are they sports fans? Consider offering them a “ballpark” pen made of 100% wood from demolished stadiums or one of the many fine sports gifts offered by the esteemed newspaper The New York Times.

Are they into CSI and Law and Order and consider their crime solving skills to be amazing! Then a crime scene towel is a great way to go. Owning 1 square inch of land in every state would be a very cool idea for that corporate guy who is finally retiring! And for all those retiring baby boomers – how about some personalized and commemorative stamps showing their own faces – they will be immortalized forever and your image can travel around the world just like a regular US postage stamp. One of the joys of offering a gag gift is the fact that you can really take advantage of the opportunity and think “outside the box” dare to be different when it comes to gift giving, not to the mention the fact that choosing these types of gag gifts are such fun. .
