If your gift can make him laugh, then clearly, you’ve won on the gift front. After all, he’s known for his sense of humor. For his jokes around the Thanksgiving table. For his not-so-serious way of looking at life (that you wish you could master). You take things a bit more seriously, including gift shopping for him. And that’s why we’ve pulled dozens of funny gifts seemingly out of a hat for you to choose from.
Whether you're known for being hilarious or you just want to make the lucky recipient fall over laughing, we've got some tips on how to find the best novelty gifts around. The best thing about funny gifts is that they don't cost much at all. In fact, they're probably some of the cheapest gifts you can get. But the payoff is worth every penny you don't spend on gifts that you'll laugh about for years each time you remember them.
Tickle their Professional Funny Bone
Have a laugh about their career or other people who have the same one with a gift that takes it out of context and into another dimension. Is he a plumber? How about a toilet coffee mug? Judge? How about handcuffs?
Play on their Passions
Do they have a passion for something weird? Do they collect something or have to try every kind of something? Whether it's zombies, mustaches, unicorns or cats you can find a funny version, something ridiculous featuring its image, or a hilarious compliment to their passion to definitely get a chuckle.
Play on their Phobias
Ok, not if it's a real phobia that might actually give them a panic attack. But, we're talking about a fear of spiders or a borderline hypochondriac. There are loads of funny gifts that tease them about their fears and hopefully help them laugh about it.
Juxtapose their Favorite Heroes
Do they love Star Wars or have another hero that they randomly bring up in conversations? Find a gift that features that hero in a form that can only be taken as a joke like garden gnome or dressed up for a birthday party. Or, maybe just a collection of weird stuff with their hero's image on it.
Play on Politics
If you agree on politics, go ahead and get them something funny that relates to your shared point of view. Election years are a great time to bond over your favorite and least favorite candidates.
Dirty jokes are always funny. Aren't they? Well, make sure that you know this person well enough to know their answer to that question for sure. Then indulge in a little toilet humor, fart jokes and sexual silliness.
