Who doesn’t love a good White Elephant party? Or maybe you’re the family jokester and you’ve got to up your game this year. I know one of my favorite holiday traditions is gifting one absolutely ridiculous gift to each of my siblings but making it seem like it’s their biggest and best gift of all. They hate it. I laugh. My parents chuckle. It’s a win-win! This year I have scoured Amazon to find some of the best gag gifts for any sort of pallet.
My favorite is this pair of dissolving swim trunks. No tell him, but I definitely put a pair of these under the tree for my husband this year. I’m all about the Snoop D.o.g. and one of the best gag gifts ever is his “From Crook to Cook” cookbook. It’s great for some laughs, and for some rather interesting meals. This funny candle was a must-purchase for my mom. She’s always telling us she’d like us gone by 9 o’clock on holidays so she can get some sleep.

These are Sure to Cause Laughs
The only way to give these is secretly. You can’t tell the receiver anything or it’ll spoil the fun! And these dissolvable swim trunks are buckets of fun. These make a great prank for your hubby, your oldest son who’s “too cool” for pool parties, or even your annoying older brother.
Show a Little Favoritism
If you have one kid that tends to be more helpful than the other, this makes a great gag gift for them. Print their picture and slap it in this frame and they’ve got instant bragging rights. If you’re an especially funny spouse, you could give this to your partner, but I advise investing in some heavy-duty armor first.
Embrace That Special Moment
Your dogs love you and they trust you and that’s why they creepily stare at you while they’re taking a poop. If you have someone in your life that’s a big dog person, you’ve got to give them this calendar. It shows them you know them! They’ll feel seen… Just like their pooping dog.
For The Crown Lovers in Your Life
I’m pretty obsessed with The Crown, Netflix’s hit TV show based on the British royal family, and I also happen to deeply love the Royal Family. This air freshener hanger was one of the best gag gifts I’ve ever received and I have definitely returned the favor by gifting this to my other Diana-obsessed friends.
How Can You Not Love Snoop Dog?
Snoop Dog is one of my favorite public figures. I would say artists, but he’s a little lower on the list of favorite rappers (sorry! Gotta put Biggie and TuPac up there!). He’s funny, he’s kind, and he knows how to market himself. This “From Crook to Cook” book is hilarious and full of delicious dishes.
Put Some Bacon on It
Hurt? Put some bacon on it! That’s sort of the same as the phrase “rub some dirt in it,” right? Either way, these bandages make a great gift for the Ron Swanson in your life — that person who just can’t seem to get enough of this delicious, porky breakfast meat.
Chefs Like Jokes, Too
Just because we’re busy cooking in the kitchen during the holiday doesn’t mean we don’t hear your jokes and laugh with you. My fellow home-chefs and I would like everyone to know we’re funny and we love a good laugh and these punny hand towels are an awesome way to let us know you realize that.
Relieve Some Stress
This is, quite possibly, the funniest, and most adult, gift I’ve ever given someone. It’s witty, it’s crud, it’s a pickle, it’s perfect! No one can keep a straight face while they’re relieving their stress on a dill pickle, especially when that dill pickle is called “A Dill Dough.” Get it?
For Those That Can’t Set Boundaries
My mom does not have a hard time setting boundaries, but I do. Every year, she tells us she wants us gone by 9 on holidays so she can get some sleep. Every year, I let my friends and family stay long past when they should have left an event, so mom and I take turns gifting this hilarious candle.
Get This for Your Work BFF
The gag is that you don’t tell them what it actually says, they’ve got to find out for themselves. I foresee quite a few quality spit takes happening with this mug. I plan to get this for my two best work friends because all we do is send one another GIFs during unnecessary meetings.
The Best Gift is Knowledge
My husband is a big learner. There are never enough factoids for him to learn, or to share with the rest of his family. This book is a fun gift because it puts a smile on his face and makes for great entertainment when he’s trying to find excuses to get out of doing the laundry.
Just Something Fun
The creators of this gadget thought “what could be cuter than a piggy bank?” And the answer they came up with is absolutely adorable! This cure little panda swipes your change and keeps it safe and sound in his little brown box. But don’t worry! You can get it back.
Don’t Give These to Your Employees
Technically, it would be immoral of me to suggest you give these pens to your employees as the funniest gag gift ever. So, don’t do that. But. If you did do that, I can’t stop you! And they would find them hilarious. Of course, this only works if you’re already a funny boss. And a good one.
Fish for S’more
If your little one (or big one) enjoys going fishing or camping, he’s going to go crazy for this. It looks like a fishing pole, but it’s actually a roasting pole! You can hook hot dogs, marshmallows, or anything else that will fit on the “hooks” right next to the little fish.
Know Someone That Needs These?
Let’s be honest, we all do! Kids, parents, cousins. Especially those of us that know and love moms out there. Us moms could use a spare pair to keep around and this comes in hilarious package that’s sure to get laughs from everyone who sees it.
This Gift is More Than a Little Dirty
You have to make sure to give these to the right sort of person, because those who aren’t so dirty minded might take offense. My family, on the other hand? They give out one pair of these socks every year. Sort of like a prize for the dirtiest joker over the year.
Don’t be Afraid to Get Political
In my opinion, the holidays are the perfect time to get political. Of course, I realize I’m in the minority here, but maybe some of you reading agree with me! This dog toy comes in the form of all sorts of political figures so you can be sure to offend everyone on your gift list.
Looking for a Gift for Your Nieces and Nephews?
I’m the baby of the family and have long been a bad influence on my nieces and nephews, all of whom are much closer in age to me than to anyone else in the family. This game is probably the funniest gift to get them and one that’s sure to piss off my brothers and sisters, too!
Great for the Whole Family
This game is a great option for the whole family. It’s hilarious to play and everyone can get in on the action, no need to worry about young ears overhearing something they shouldn’t! We love playing this at the holidays; it’s a great way to get everyone together again after dinner.
Trick Your Parents
I got this mug for my mom last year and she wasn’t nearly as mad as my brothers and sisters thought she should be. I think that means I am her favorite, but she’ll never tell. That’s okay though, this mug can do the talking for her from now on!
Never Run Low on Dad Jokes
Imagine a world without dad jokes! Just kidding, don’t do that, because that would be horrible! This is one of my go-to gag gifts for new fathers. It turns out, dads don’t just inherently know how to be funny, they’ve got to learn. And this book is the first step on that journey.
For the Hustlers in Your Life
As someone that never knows when to take a break, I identify as a family hustler. There’s just something about work that I can’t seem to walk away from. My older brother got this sign for me as a gift and it has me in stitches every time I look at it; the almighty dollar.
