how about: grow your own furniture kit: acorn in a bag with note that says: plant and in 40 or so years cut down and make your own oak furniture. Belly button lint cleaner: a piece of pipe cleaner that is curved at end to look something like a toilet bowl brush.

We did this one year and it was hilarious. Everyone received a gift specially designed for them. For instance, one of the family was moving from California to Minnesota so we wrapped up a "can of smog." Another had an extreme political hatred of someone so we made a necklace of his picture on it for her to wear. You get the idea. It has to be personal yet something you can laugh about.

Redneck gift idea:

Buy the largest pair of panties you can find and safety-pin this message on the front:

A pair of "draws' for Mrs. Claus.

An addition to the Car (Ford, Dodge,etc.) Repair Kit. My brother was in school, so I added mom & dads phone numbers on a tag (stated..if all else fails) in the bag with the duct tape & rubber bands. He got a kick out of it.

My daughter and I did this totally off the wall gag one year and gave it to the person we thought would flip out the most. Go out about a week before Christmas and buy a food item from a fast food restaurant (we bought a hamburger from McDonalds). Wrap it up and put it under the tree.The reaction to that burger was hilarious. I will never forget it.

My family is just huge on gag gifts. Most of then just get passed along to everyone. The number one running gag gift in our family is this stupid glass head that me and my mom found at pier one. We just couldn't understand why anyone could ever possibly want one of those. So we bought it. It has showed up so many times at holidays!

I think the best one was at my sisters wedding, she really hates leopard print, so we tied a leopard print scarf on it and gave it to her. My mom has recently quit her job that she's had for over 20 years. So when she left she put the glass head up on a shelf with a note in it that says Laura was here.

I really wish they still made these glass head but we haven't been able to find them in a while. Another thing I did was last year for our family grab bag, I bought one of the new really ugly x-mas trees made out of bark. Once again who would ever want one of those.I didn't just stop there... I got a really ugly feathered bird with shiny beads on it, and made that the tree topper and then got a tree skirt... then i glued a bunch of glitter and little pom poms to it. It was hilarious. My sister in law ended up getting it, and I can't wait to see it put out this year for x-mas :)

I have a "short" friend and every year for Christmas and birthdays we give each other a "short" gag gift. However, I'm at a loss as what to give him this year. Can anyone give me ideas on a good gag gift I can give him that relates to being a short man? I gave him a catalog for his birthday for clothes for the short man.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

Are you sure he thinks these gag gifts are as much fun as you do? I know a few short men who have great senses of humor, but after a while that joke wears thin, and truth be told, they are as sensitive about their height as anyone else is about their own "shortcomings." No one likes their inadequacies continually pointed out to them. Maybe it's time to step back and reconsider. He may be short in stature, but sounds like a very big person with a huge sense of self.

My church is having a Christmas party and this year we are to bring gag gifts. You bring a gift, mark it male or female and then the gifts are handed out in a random fashion. I need some suggestions of either things to buy or things to make. Be creative, but keep it clean (it is a church party after all).

The "poop" gifts are cute, without being nasty. (You make a cute little header card, and staple it to a small plastic bag of the "poop".) For example: mini marshmallows for snowman poop, raisinettes for reindeer poop, red and green jelly beans for elf poop, etc.

I think www.organizedchristmas.com still has some of the "headers" you can print for the snowman poop and reindeer poop.

A Necessity Box: a battery, toilet paper roll, small samples of toothpaste, and soap etc. Maybe, the Daily Bread, a can of coke or a small sample packet of coffee, a band-aid, a wet-wipe packet, used items like a calling card (since there's not pay phones anymore (!), a chocolate candy bar (gotta have chocolate!!), a pencil or pen, sun screen, a sample of TUMS, or Tylenol. If you have kids, let them also throw in the things they feel are necessities to get through life. You will be amazed at what the little tikes will want to add to your box! Let your imagination run for the fun of it. Depending what you put into your box, you will create a lot of laughs!

In my experience we call this a White Elephant party. We give each other completely random and truly unwanted gifts, with a card of true holiday spirit and tidings. Last year I got a half used and dried up jar of fishing stink bait!

I have given a sack of old "lonely" socks, a shoe horn, a handful of old ink pens and markers that don't quiet work, etc.

The entire point of the gift is the card and tidings. Meanwhile I still love the snowman poop gift bag which is really marshmallows. I have made some up this year with the colored ones and claim it is Elf poo. Have fun and Merry Christmas to you.

I had a boss, that always said "I'm hot". So for Christmas,we drew names, and I drew his.I bought him a tiny hand held fan, and wrote on the card "I hope this cools you off". Then I also bought him some real nice after shave. It was a new brand, at that time. Weezy

This site will give you some ideas. It's from Google.

https://www.goo  &q=gag+gifts

If he has roots in the farming community, you can put three kernals of corn in a small zipper bag (1" by 1.5") and a hang tag on it that says "Three Piece Chicken Dinner". Paint some white beans with spots of black, put in another small bag and say "Holstein Seeds". Put some cereal rings in that bag and say "Donut Seeds". There's a lot of cute things you can do.

If he is as cheap as you say, make him some magnets for his file cabinet or fridge. Take a clothes pin, put in a penny and write "Penny Pincher" and hot glue a magnet to the back.

I hope this helps. Here is a link to a submission I had put in a few years back.

Good ideas here but the first thing comes to my mind is an old pair of worn out, faded jeans with holes in the knees. I have a really cheap relative who is quite well off and every time I see him this is what he's wearing. Or a worn shirt or shoes from a thrift store.

This is such a good idea. Put some coupons for get out of an argument free. A couple of cards that say "I'm Sorry" and a big print page with their Anniversary Written on it with the nearest Florist address and telephone number. You might add a page where all her friends and wedding party put nice statements about what they like about him the most!

Women's dictionary

1. "Fine"

This is the word women use at the end of any argument when they feel they are right but can't stand to hear you argue any longer.

It means that you should shut up. (NEVER use "fine" to describe how she looks.

This will cause you to have one of those arguments.)

2. "Five minutes"

This is half an hour. It is equivalent to the five minutes that your football game is going to last before you take out the trash, so women feel that it's an even trade.

3. "Nothing"

"Nothing" means something and you should be on your toes.

"Nothing" is usually used to describe the feeling a woman has of wanting to turn you inside out, upside down, and backwards. "Nothing" usually signifies an argument that will last "Five Minutes" and end with the word "Fine."

4. "Go Ahead" (with raised eyebrows) This is NOT permission; it's a dare! If you mistake it for permission, the result will be the woman will get upset over "Nothing" and you'll have a "five-minute" discussion that will end with the word "Fine."

5. "Go Ahead" (normal eyebrows)

This is NOT permission, either. It means "I give up" or "do what you want because I don't care." You will get a raised eyebrow "Go Ahead" in just a few minutes, followed by "Nothing" and "Fine" and she will talk to you in about "Five Minutes" when she cools off.

6. "Loud Sigh" This is not actually a word, but is still often a verbal statement.

Very frequently misunderstood by men. A "Loud Sigh" means she thinks you are a complete idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you over "Nothing!."

7. "Soft Sigh" Again, not a word, but a verbal statement. "Soft Sighs" are one of the few things that some men actually understand. It means she is momentarily content. Your best bet is to not move or breathe in the hope that the moment will last a bit longer.

8. "Oh" This word -- followed by any statement - is trouble. Example; "Oh, let me get that". Or, "Oh, I talked to him about what you were doing last night." If she says "Oh" before a statement, run, do not walk, to the nearest exit. She will tell you that she is "Fine" when she is done tossing your clothes out the window, but do not expect her to talk to you for at least two days.

("Oh" as the lead to a sentence usually signifies that you are caught in a lie). Do not try to lie more to get out of it, or you will get a raised eyebrow "Go ahead," sometimes followed by acts so unspeakable that I can't bring myself to write about them.

9."That's Okay" This is one of the most dangerous statements that a woman can say to a man. "That's Okay" means that she wants to think long and hard before deciding what the penalty will be for whatever you have done.

"That's Okay" is often used with the word "Fine" and in conjunction with a raised eyebrow "Go Ahead." Once she has had time to plan it out, you are in for some mighty big trouble.

10. "Please Do" This is not a statement, it is an offer. The woman is giving you the chance to come up with an excuse for what you have done. In other words, a chance to get yourself into even more trouble. If you handle this correctly, you shouldn't get a "That's Okay."

11. "Thanks" The woman is thanking you. Don't faint and don't look for hidden meaning. Just say "you're welcome."

12. "Thanks A Lot" "Thanks A Lot" is dramatically different from "Thanks." A woman will say "Thanks A Lot" when she is really ticked off at you. It is usually followed by the "Loud Sigh." This signifies that you have hurt her in some callous way. Be careful not to ask what is wrong after the "Loud Sigh," as she will only tell you "Nothing".

In the beginning, God created the earth and rested.

Then God created Man and rested.

Then God created Woman.

Since then, neither God nor Man has rested.

I would like a silly gag gift idea for Christmas. Someone told me about a poem with a Baby Ruth candy bar. I also did one a year ago for my son's fiance. She told him she wanted a 3 carat diamond and laughed, so I wrapped three little baby carrots up in a small box and gave them to her for Christmas. It was a hit.

This might be a little too crass but I gave this one year. You make slippers out of mini menstrual pads! Use one for the "sole" and another to make the front part that flips over from one side to the other. In other words, like a slip- on slipper with toes showing. Then put some holly and berries or other decoration on them.

I did this last year and people got huge giggles from them plus they were edible treats. I had a bunch of little pretty holiday draw string bags and snack size plastic bags so only needed to purchase the appropriate 'poop' to place first in the snack bags and then in the pretty drawstring bags. ;-)

Whichever one you choose just write the little poem in a Christmas card or on a large gift tag and if you're good at creating on the computer then make your own to print out. If you're interested I have the gift tags with even better poems in a PDF file you could print out so just click my contact button if you would like me to email them to you.

Snowman Poop

Use mini-marshmallows and write the following:

I've heard that you've been naughty!

Now listen, here's the scoop.

I am running short on coal this year,

So you get some snowman poop!

Reindeer Poop

Use Milk Duds or Malted Milk Balls and write the following:

You've been naughty,

so here's the scoop.

You're getting nothing

But reindeer poop!
