Everyone deserves a good laugh after a long year. Lighten up the holidays by giving these laughter-inducing gag gifts to your family, friends and coworkers, which are especially perfect if you’re hosting a White Elephant or Dirty Santa gift exchange.
Yes, some of these gag gifts are kind of ridiculous — but that’s the point! From silly footwear like fish flops and baguette slippers to the world’s smallest violins and microphones, these seriously funny gift ideas are something that everyone on your list will either love to hate, hate to love or a mix of both. Either way, no one — even your office’s designated Grinch — can deny that laughter is the best gift of all.
To really win the gifting game, balance laughter with sentiment and heart by rounding out their presents with these one of these gift picks for men and women. (Don’t get your girlfriend a gag gift and nothing else.)
