Novelty Gag Gifts

Saturday, January 22nd, 2011

Not sure what to get someone for Christmas or for their birthday because it seems that they have everything that they could ever need? Perhaps you have to send something to family far away and but you have no idea what they could use. If you fall into any of these categories, or if you just plain love to have fun with the gifts that you give for any occasion, perhaps novelty gag gifts are what you should be shopping around for.

Before you decide to buy gag gifts, remember that these do not work well with all people, or some work and some will not. There are some novelty gag gifts that you can get for someone’s specific sense of humor. You know if they are going to like it or not. Don’t get something too gross for someone who seems to always have a proper air about them, and don’t buy anything that might be offensive. You can find plenty of great gags without offending half of the people that you know.

Novelty gag gifts can be just about anything that you think someone else would find funny?not what you think is funny. If you and someone else share a sense of humor, you already know that what you like will be what they would like, at least for the most part. When you buy, think about what they like in their lives. Do they drink? Do they have pets? What are their favorite weekend activities? You can get a golf novelty gag gift for someone that plays a lot of golf, but that might not work for someone who has never picked up a golf club.

There are some important events that a person reaches that just calls out for novelty gag gifts. This is when someone is fighting an age as 40, 50, or even 75. The hill gag gifts have been around forever, and there is a reason for that. Some people like to tease others about their age. You do not want to get kind of gag gifts for your boss who is struggling to turn 55, but it will work fine if you have a pair. You’re teasing her as much as you’re teasing us.

You can find novelty gag gifts for just about any occasion whether it be Christmas (or any other religious celebration), birthday, anniversary, retirement, wedding, new baby, or just because you feel like getting someone something for someone. Think about these gifts as something that is always supposed to be fun, and you should be able to find something for just about anyone. Remember to have a good sense of humor when someone returns the favor the next time you are celebrating an important moment in your life..

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. .
